The 2021-2022 skating season is well underway for most Skate Canada clubs and schools and it’s a good time to check that you have not missed any important steps or procedures.
Is your club registered with Skate Canada?
This step is critical to ensure you are eligible to run Skate Canada programs, you are covered by insurance, and you are eligible to submit assessments for your skaters! To register your club or school click on “Organization Membership” under the “Org Management” tab on the Membership site. Once under the Org Management tab take a moment to ensure the proper people have administrator access for your club and click on “Organization Administrative Access”.
Have you ensured all your skaters are registered with Skate Canada?
Double checking all your skaters are registered ensures they are covered by insurance should an accident occurs and ensures they are properly registered in our system when they take an assessment or compete! To register your registrants, click on “Enroll Registrants” on the Membership Site and to view your registered registrants, click on “Completed Registrations” and use the filter box on the left to view by registration year.
Have you submitted all your assessments to Skate Canada for processing?
Depending on the amount of activity your club or school has been able to do with the impact and restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic, you may have forgot to submit documentation for assessments that took place during the last year. To submit assessment summary sheets, click on “Submit Assessment Results” on the Membership Site.
If you are having trouble finding a skater’s assessment records, view your home club skater’s assessments under “Completed Registrations”. Search for the individual, click on their Skate Canada number and then click on their name and their assessments will be at the bottom of the screen.
Have you registered your club’s Board of Directors?
It is a requirement that you register your club board members with Skate Canada. Registering your board members with Skate Canada also ensures they are covered by insurance (does not apply in Quebec). It is also important that you report your club’s Board of Directors to Skate Canada and that can be done by clicking on “Group Management” on the Membership site.
