    • If minimum class quota is not met, classes may be cancelled or combined.
    • Register early, as classes fill up quickly; you are not guaranteed a spot if placed on the wait-list. 
    • There is no pro-rating of registration fees for missed classes and no refunds once sessions start unless approved by the Skate Director.
    • Pre-testing will occur on the first day to ensure your student is in the correct level.
