Dear Parents, Skaters and Coaches,
Our Club’s current membership year ends on May 31, 2013 and it’s time to renew your Club membership. We thank you for being valued members of The Skating Club of San Francisco, Inc. We are now entering our 81st year as a Pacific Coast skating club which begins on June 1st, 2013. Our Club’s mission is to promote the sport of figure skating. We want to support your enjoyment of the sport, whether you are working towards competing in singles, pairs, dance, or on our Tremors Synchronized Skating Team, our Theater On Ice team – San Francisco Ice Theatre or, for your own recreation and personal achievements.
The Club is run entirely by volunteers, and our Club would not exist without your participation and support, and the volunteer efforts of our skating family. Our Board members are former competitive skaters, U. S. Figure Skating officials, parents, and adult skaters. We are also a tax-exempt, public benefit sports organization (IRS 501-C (3) and are able to help subsidize our skaters with weekly Club ice sessions at Yerba Buena Ice Skating & Bowling Center and Belmont Iceland, along with monthly test sessions.
Our Home Club dues for the first member of a family or individual are $110.00, and each additional family member is $60.00. The Home Club membership includes U.S. Figure Skating registration for the 2013- 2014 season, which is required in order to take the U.S. Figure Skating skills tests in moves, free skating, dance, and pairs, as well as compete in U.S. Figure Skating sanctioned competitions. Parents of skaters who do not skate but would like to participate in the governance of the Club can join for a nominal fee of $20.00.
Coach's membership will also remain at $60.00, (for professional coaches only) which includes U.S. Figure Skating registration without testing or competition privileges. Coaches must be current PSA members in order to join or renew under coaches membership, and SCSF expects all coaches to be compliant with United States Figure Skating coaching requirements.
Both Home Club members and Coaches will receive Skating magazine, and our weekly club email blast, The Inside Edge. Home Club members also receive priority, and discounted fees for club sponsored test sessions. Regular weekly club ice will continue to be held at Belmont Iceland on Monday nights from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm, and Saturday mornings from 7:00 am to 8:30 am at Yerba Buena Skating Center. Additionally, our Club's U.S. Figure Skating judges and technical specialists are available upon request to provide skaters with critiques.
Please note all new and renewing memberships are subject to approval by the Club's Board of Directors. All Club members must abide by the Club's Code of Conduct, which may be found on our website www.scsf.org or by contacting a member of our Board. In addition, the Club supports the provisions of U.S. Figure Skating's SafeSport program.
