COVID PROTOCOLS

All families will need to complete a SKATE CANADA WAIVER before their skater can step on the ice. We will have paper copies available to sign this week or you can print this form and hand it to a SFSC Board Member at the rink this week (we will have a table set up). Find the waiver HERE

Please review the Stettler Recreation Centre's current COVID-19 protocols HERE

  • Screen yourself and your child daily for COVID-19 symptoms and DO NOT ATTEND IF YOU OR YOUR SKATER HAVE SYMPTOMS
  • Wear a mask in the facility. Skaters may remove their masks right before they get on the ice.
  • Spectators - please distance yourself in the dressing rooms, spectator stands and lobby
  • If we are found not adhering to these rules and guidelines, we may risk losing future ice session(s). Please follow the rules so that our skaters can continue skating.

VOLUNTEER HOURS & VOLUNTEER CHEQUES

All families are asked to complete volunteer hours during the skating season to support the operation of our club. Volunteer opportunities will be communicated by SFSC Board members and the Volunteer Liaison.

Each family is asked to submit a postdated volunteer cheque in the amount of $250.00 (postdated to March 31, 2022 to Stettler Figure Skating Club). Please hand in your volunteer cheque to a board member this week when you arrive at the rink.

Use the VOLUNTEER LOG to track your volunteer hours and submit when completed to our Volunteer Liaison (Karla Klaus at sfscvolunteer@gmail.com) or to any SFSC Board member. Also use the log to determine how many hours your family is required to complete.

  • SFSC VOLUNTEER LOG can be found HERE

Our first volunteer opportunity will be our PURDY's CHOCOLATES FUNDRAISER. We hope to have brochures and online sales info to you next week, and all orders will arrive in time for Christmas. More info will be provided soon.

FUNSKATE: Assuming that restrictions allow, we plan to hold our FunSkate Competition January 22 & 23, 2022. This event is optional for skaters to participate in, and will have additional registration fees. This is a weekend where many volunteers are required, and we ask for raffle table donations as well.

YEAR END SKATING CARNIVAL: Assuming that restrictions allow, we plan to hold our Carnival March 19, 2022. Dress rehearsal would be held March 18, 2022 and pictures are often held this week as well.
