Bashaw Skating Club registration night Sept. 10

Bring child’s health care number

The Bashaw Skating Club will hold its annual registration night at the Bashaw Arena from 3:30 to 6 p.m. on Sept. 10.

Parents will need to bring their child’s health care number and can either pay the full registration fee up front or with post-dated cheques.

There is also a volunteer hour deposit that will be returned at the end of the season as long as the volunteer hours obligation has been met.

Families of skaters are required to fundraise by selling Grey Cup tickets that they can pick up on registration day. Last year the process was made more streamlined, as parents now purchase the $100 worth of tickets and then sell the tickets to recoup their cost, rather than having to collect and turn in the money.

“Realistically it’s a lot less work for everybody,” said Stacie Steeves, club president.

Picking the tickets up at registration night also gives more time to sell the tickets, says Steeves.

The Bashaw Skating Club is a certified STARSkate and CanSkate programs provider.

The club hopes to keep practice nights the same as last year — Monday and Wednesday from 4:30 to 5:15 p.m. for CanSkate and 5:30 to 7:15 p.m. for STAR Skate, but it may change after registrations are complete.

If you’re unable to make it to registration night, you can contact Steeves at 780-608-4581 and she will get a form to you, or show up on the first day of skating and register then.

Skaters have started as young as three years old in CanSkate, and there is no age limit before a skater can move onto STARSkate as it is based on ability level.

If a parent is unsure where their children should be, they can start in CanSkate and the coach will adjust their level if needed.

The club’s first day of skating is Oct.2 and the season runs until mid-to-late March. There is always a winter gala performance before Christmas and a spring carnival in March to finish of the year.
