Competitive Fees, Policies & Refund Info

Fees

Competitive fees are based on the length of the session, how many weeks the session runs, and whether or not any coaching is included on the session, or if off ice training is included in the package.

Mandatory Membership Fees

  1. The Skate Canada (SC) Fee of $44 is only charged once per year (Sep 1 to Aug 31) and pays for your SC membership and insurance. We forward this fee on to SC on your behalf. The SC Fee is non-refundable and non-transferable.
  2. The Skate Oakville membership fee of $50 is only charged once per year (Sep 1 to Aug 31) and entitles you to skating on Skate Oakville sessions.
  3. The Ontario Skaters' Promotional Contest Ticket Booklets at a cost of $80 is our annual fundraiser.  Two ticket booklets are included with your registration at a cost of $80. You may sell the raffle tickets to family and friends and keep the money as you have already paid for the booklets. Alternatively you may enter yourself into the raffle and fill out all the tickets with your name. The ticket stubs are due back by Dec 31 so they can be mailed in to be included in the draw. The draw takes place at the Provincials competition in March.
Payments

Full payment of mandatory membership fees is required at time of registration.  Session fees may be split into 5 monthly installments beginning September 1 (Main Season). Installment option is available for Spring/Summer as well.

Refunds
  • Refund requests must be done by email to the office. (office@skateoakville.ca)
  • The $44 Skate Canada fees are non-refundable for any reason.
  • The $50 Skate Oakville fees and $80 fundraising fees are not refundable after the start of the season.

Full refund policies are available here.

In the event that a participant is unable to attend a scheduled class(es), make-up classes, refunds, or credits for the missed class(es) will not be provided."

My skater is interested in pairs skating, how do I sign them up?

Speak directly to your base coach for more information. The Competitive Pairs program is by invitation only

Does Pairs skating distract from Singles skating?

Not necessarily. When starting out, it is common for skaters to compete in both singles and pairs. We encourage pairs skaters to complement their training with singles lessons to create a more well-rounded skater.
