CLUB ICE
Club Ice is designated as ice time for Kansas City FSC / Silver Blades FSC members and skaters of other clubs who have joined KCFSC/SBFSC as associates/non-home club members. This reserved time gives skaters the opportunity to practice their skills during the week. Members can purchase contracts for club ice time for each session, or they can pay as a walk on. Members of other regional clubs are welcomed as guest members of a KCFSC/SBFSC  member. All guests must register and sign a release of liability form prior to skating in club ice.

2016-2017 CONTRACT INFORMATION
Skaters who have passed U.S. Figure Skating Basic Skills Level 8 or higher are welcome to participate in the Kansas City FSC/Silver Blades FSC club ice sessions.  

 

CONTRACTS & WALK-ONS
A skater may contract specific session(s) and/or may purchase walk-on sessions.  A maximum of 26 skaters will be allowed on a session.  In the event that a session becomes full, skaters that have contract ice will have first priority.  Walk-on skaters will then be allowed on a first-come, first-serve basis.  If a session is full, then a walk-on skater may take the place of an absent contract skater, 5 minutes after the start of the session.  Each skater needs to check-in with the ice monitor upon arrival.  If a skater does not check-in with the ice monitor, the ice monitor is not responsible for the availability of ice for that skater. 

 

PAYMENT INFORMATION 
Payments may be made online (see link above) or to the ice monitors in the form of cash or check.  There is a $30 fee for any late or returned payments. 

CONTRACT ICE BILLING SCHEDULE AND PAYMENT POLICIES

All contracts must be submitted with the 1st scheduled payment in order to be accepted.  Subsequent payments are due as follows based on the payment plan selected:

  •  Lump Sum Payment Plan - Total contract amount is due with Contract Submission – no further payments are due.
  •  Quarterly Payment Plan - The first quarterly installment will be due with Contract Submission and subsequent installments will be due on the 1st of November 2016, January 2017, and March 2017, for a total of 4 payments.
  •  Monthly Payment Plan (only available to those contracting 4 or more hours per week) - The first monthly installment will be due with Contract Submission and subsequent monthly payments will be due on the 1st of each month September 2016 – May 2017, for a total of 10 payments.

Courtesy reminders will be emailed on or about each payment due date as listed above.  Payments not received within thirty (30) days of their due date will be assessed a $30.00 late fee which must be paid in addition to the original amount due in order to bring the account current.  At that time the skater(s) will be considered “not in good standing” and will not be allowed to test, compete, or utilize club ice sessions until the account is brought current.

 

A $30.00 fee will be charged on all returned checks and the subsequent payment made to replace the returned check must be in the form or cash or money order.  Non-payment of a contract bill may result in the total amount due being sent to an agency for collection.

Club Ice Rules

 

The new competition season is kicking off with Skate KC coming up at the end of March. Based on this, the club ice committee wanted to send some quick reminders and clarifications as it relates to key rules and procedures on club ice sessions as they will once again become critical to making the club ice sessions productive for everyone. Please review so everyone is aware of expectations:
  1. Program Music to be played must be on CD and is to be turned into the Ice Monitor Desk at check-in. Sometimes due to lack of demand or availability there is no music monitor for a session and in this case the music will instead be handled by coaches/skaters similar to rink freestyle sessions.
  2. Skaters must wear the Program Sash when their music is being played for them. All other skaters and coaches should be aware of the sash and yield right-of-way to the best of their ability.
  3. All skaters need to check in with the ice monitor immediately upon arrival to ensure their spot. This is especially important as Saturday's Club Ice Session is now commpletely FULL so Walk-Ons will only be available after 5 minutes if contracted skaters do not show.  If a contract skater is going to be more than 5 minutes late they need to let the monitor know ahead of time so their spot can be held - otherwise it may be forfeited for that session to a walk-on.
  4. All Cell Phones, iPads, etc are to remain at the barrier/boards. For your safety and the safety of others, there should be no one skating while holding any electronic devices with the exception of a coach recording their student or exploring new music with their student.
  5. No one should linger/congregate/group at the boards or on the ice. Extended conversations should take place off ice ... when on the ice you should be moving.
  6. Props may be used but may not touch the ice or endanger any skaters on the ice.  If small prop is dropped it must immediately be retrieved by coach or skater. 
  7. Walk-On Policy is payment prior to stepping onto the session either via a punch or cash/check.


Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above.
