* Due to current guidelines and restrictions, please make note of the following important information regarding Fall 2020 registration.
ALL sessions will continue to follow the same processes and procedures implemented in the summer. For those skaters who have not skated on JDFSC sessions since March, please read the important documents on our website under "Return to Play,"and the important information listed under the "Registration" tab.
Pre-STAR & STARSkate/ Competitive (Group A, B, C & D for Fall 2020)
Families will receive notice from their primary coach and/or Director of Skating regarding which "Group" to register their skater(s) in. If you have not been notified, please contact your primary coach. If you do not have a primary coach, please contact email@example.com.
***Registration Update for JDFSC Members***
Unfortunately at this time there will not be a partial/individual registration opening on many of our sessions as they are full. If we are able to open any spots the club will contact families. Thank you for your understanding! Information regarding Canskate registration will be posted soon.
Online payment only, no cash or cheque.
The Skate Canada BC/YK Return to Skating waiver must be signed prior to skating. Click here for the waiver.
** Registration access has been emailed out to the skaters that fit the criteria for our first Canskate fall program offered. **
Canskate will look much different this year.
Due to Skate Canada COVID-19 restrictions in place we will be allowing access to register by email to our 2019/2020 members based on the stages they have completed. We will not be allowing the Pre-Canskate or Stage 1 skaters to register for our Sept. to Dec. program. Also, we are not permitted to accept new members in our Canskate program due to tracking skill level. All due to the physical distancing rules in place as well as smaller numbers allowed on the ice and in the facility.***Please do NOT email us asking for your child's CanSkate level. We will contact you if your child is eligible for our program when we have a start date confirmed - thank you.
At this time, spectators are not allowed in the facility during our programs due to capacity restrictions and guideline recommendations from Skate Canada BC/YK Section. Parents will be required to drop skaters off at the health check entrance 15 min prior to the start of their session and pick them up at the exit door immediately following the lesson. Please understand that if you miss the window for the health check (outlined in red on the schedule) you will NOT be able to enter or skate,this is the same for all of our programs. Parents MUST remain in the parking lot for emergency situations and prompt pick up time.
We will have a few parent volunteers there to assist if needed. Once you receive confirmation that your child may register you can email the club asking to be considered for a designated volunteer during the Canskate session. (firstname.lastname@example.org) You will have restricted access in the building during the session if you are selected to be a volunteer. Please do NOT email us until we send you registration access confirmation.
All Canskaters MUST have their own skates, hard guards for walking on pavement, gloves and CSA approved helmet with the certification sticker on it. It is a certified hockey helmet, not a bike or ski helmet. Skaters will not be permitted on the ice unless the helmet is approved. Face shields are not needed.
The skaters need to arrive fully dressed to go on the ice with skates on. This is all mandatory as we cannot share clothing and must respect physical distancing at all times. The Coaches and Program Assistants will be wearing masks, and the health check volunteer will also wear a mask.
The guidelines are strictly enforced with all the safety measures in place and for this reason Canskate (when we are able to offer it) will only be 30 min lesson on ice. And all members will only be permitted to register for one day a week, not the two days (Saturday or Monday) in order to allow more of our members, the opportunity to skate!
When registration opens it will only be for Sept to Dec lessons. Registration for our Jan to March lessons will be posted late fall. When you receive access be sure to register right away as space is limited and when the program is full registration will close.
Parents must read all the Return to Play rules on our website and go over the rules of physical distancing with your child. A paper copy of the waiver must be signed by the skater and the parents and turned in at the first lesson (health check station outside the arena). This is also mandatory.
We hope to see your child on the ice with us soon! Take care, be well, stay safe.
If you are ill, Stay Home!
If someone in your household tests positive for COVID then the skater must also be tested. If the skaters result comes back negative, they can return to skating.
If someone in your household has a cold and the skater has no symptoms they can skate.
JDFSC will continue to post information both on the club website and club facebook page that affect any changes to our programs in the near future. The health and safety of our JDFSC members, skaters, coaches, volunteers and our community is most important in our decisions moving forward with this global situation.
Thank you for your understanding and patience. Please stay safe and healthy!
