MEMBERSHIP POLICIES

Uniforms – Skaters who register as Tri-City members are expected to wear the Tri-City uniform for all events to advertise our club and our sponsors, The Forum, Regatta Sport, and McMaster Sports.

Points – Club members are able to earn points through various fundraising activities (eg. sale of cheese and chocolate bars, helping at BINGO’s, etc.) These points may be redeemed to offset the cost of floor fees, equipment, skating events and other expenses related to skating activities.

Termination of club membership – A club member may quit the club any time, provided he/she notifies the club in writing. All un-cashed, post-dated cheques for floor fees will be returned to the skater. The skater must return any outstanding fundraising items and payments. Accumulated points will NOT be returned to the skater. Accumulated points may be used to cover any outstanding fundraising items with the remainder being transferred to the general 8 Wheels account. Upon rejoining, the skater will have to pay the registration fee again and their points will start at zero. Any matters of dispute will be referred to the 8 Wheels Board for settlement.

Guest Privileges – A non-member wishing to skate during practice times will be charged $10.00 per practice session. This fee is to be paid at the beginning of the practice session (limit 3 visits per non-RSC member). If they wish to continue to participate, they must join the club and purchase a RSC membership.

Individuals with RSC membership through other clubs may participate in as many practices as they wish, provided they pay the $10.00 floor fee.
