Each skater who registers with the Maple Ridge Skating Club pays a non-refundable Skate Canada membership fee as part of their registration.
This fee, set by the Skate Canada’s National Board of Directors, is payable once per skating year (September 1 – August 31), and is not pro-rated at any time. Membership to Skate Canada entitles your skater to a unique Skate Canada membership number which grants you access to the Members Only section of the Skate Canada web site www.skatecanada.ca.
Your skater’s Skate Canada number will not change and will remain your child’s link to Skate Canada forever, even in years you are not an active member.
The current Skate Canada Fee is $46.00 per year.
