Club members must be members of the United States Figure Skating Association (USFSA). USFSA rules dictate that a skater may only be a home club member in one skating club. If a skater opts to be a home club member of another skating club, he or she may join CIFSC as an associate member. If associate members want to participate in events at our rink, they are required to have permission for the sanctions office from their home club.
Packages will be assigned in the order that registration forms and payments are received and distributed as follows:
Current home club members – 1st package request
New home club members – 1st package request
Current home club members – 2nd package request
New home club members – 2nd request
Each skater will be REQUIRED to provide an adult as rink monitor several times during the skating seasons. The dates and times will be automatically assigned after fall registration. If you are not able to be rink monitor during your assigned time, it is your responsibility to find a replacement. The rink monitor schedule will be distributed early in the skating season. Copies will also be posted on the Willett bulletin board, on our website, and printed in the CIFSC monthly newsletter when possible.
