We are so pleased to be able announce that the skating season will start in October 2020 and run to mid March 2021.
Please see attached registration information as well as an email from the board with important information.
Registration forms can be done on line as they are now a fillable form that can be emailed back. (Thanks to Corinne for making that possible) Payments can be made via etransfer, credit card, cheque or cash. Membership must be paid up by the final installment or skaters will not be allowed on the ice till payments are paid. We still have some outstanding invoices from last season.
Prices have changed and somewhat gone up. The ice costs go up every year and we unfortunately missed two very large fundraisers in the spring and are unsure of the possibilities for the upcoming year. Prices reflect ice and group coaching costs. There will however be four installment options if needed.
More information re procedures coming into the arena and on the ice will come shortly as we have just received a new update. Masks need to be worn in the arena but not mandatory on the ice. It was also announced that Special Olympics will be allowed to start and the harness is also now allowed to be used with sanitation and coach and skater must wear a mask when using the harness.
Coaching staff this season: We are pleased that Jack Langenhuizen and Alannah Bondy will be returning this season. We welcome newly hired Canskate certified coach Josee Furness and welcome her to Mount Forest. Michelle and Nicole will be back to help out on the ice as well. We wish Nicki all the best as she pursues other things this year and are grateful for her many years as a club member and coach!
Looking forward to a different but great season - we are just happy to be back. Procedures like in all places will be updated and considered living documents as things will likely change many times over.
Our Board that was voted in a shortened AGM this summer is as follows: President Nicole West Vice President Michelle Pratt Treasurer Mindy Brunet Secretary Corinne Sales Test Chair Anne Moore Fundraising Amy Copland and Jenn Truax Director Cora Crouse
