Skating School

An organization other than a Club that is operating for the general purpose of providing Skate Canada skating programs.

The home organization of a registrant is the member club or skating school through which the individual registers with Skate Canada as a registrant.  

A registrant may be a member of more than one club or skating school, but can only have one home organization per registration year.

A registrant who belongs to more than one club or skating school must advise each organization of which he/she is a member as to his/her declaration of a home organization not later than September 1st of each year. If a registrant fails to make such declaration, then the first of the organizations to submit the individual’s registration will be the home organization for that registration year.

If a registrant wishes to change home organizations following registration for a particular registration year, they must notify Skate Canada.  Changes to home organization that involve a change of section are subject to provisions as included in section policies.
