Non-Club Season: How Freestyle Sessions Work
Beginning on March 18, 2013 and through the end of the summer, the club is in its off-season. This means that the rink is open for skating to members and non-members. During this time of year, ice time for Freestyle or lessons is purchased by coupon sales. Usually one coupon will buy you about 45 minutes to 1 hour of ice time. During Freestyle sessions, skaters must either be in a lesson with a coach or practicing their Moves in the Field, Freestyle or Ice Dance, and they must have passed the Basic Skills Level 8 test. Skaters who have not passed Basic Skills level 8 may use the Basic Skills Private Lessons ice time only.
Here are the basics of how the Spring off-season freestyle sessions work:
1. PICK YOUR SKATING SESSIONS/TIMES: Refer to the Spring Freestyle Schedule to determine the times you will skate during the Spring Session. Note: changes to the schedule could occur and will be posted on the website, on our rink bulletin board, and will be emailed to those who have provided us with their email address.
2. PURCHASE YOUR ICE COUPONS: Coupons may be purchased in the Pro Shop or front office. Use the Coupon Order form found at the end of the Spring Schedule packet to pre-purchase the number of ice coupons you will need. We offer several volume levels beginning at 1 coupon for $15 and going up to 36 coupons at $10 each. You can buy coupons at any time and in any of the available increments or add on any time you run out.
3. TURN IN ONE COUPON PER SESSION: When you are ready to skate, coupons should be given to the ice attendant, or if no attendant is collecting, coupons should be turned in inside the Pro Shop or placed in the mailbox that hangs outside of the Pro-Shop. Please write the skater’s name on each coupon. Skaters are expected to turn in one coupon for each session they skate even if the sessions are continuous back to back sessions.
4. SIGN IN WHEN YOU ARRIVE: There is a sign-in book located on the bleachers outside of the door to the ice surface. All skaters are asked to sign in each session that they skate, even if they skate back to back sessions.
