Make-Up Class Policy
For anyone in the CanStake program, make-up classes will only be offered if there is availability on another day, within the same session. MFSC is not required to offer make-up classes but will do our best to accommodate where we can. Please speak to the office staff to see if accommodations can be made.
Program Assistant Policy
STARSkate participants who have passed all levels of STAR 1 (Elements, Skills and Freeskate), are over 12 years old and/or have been approved by the Skating Coordinator, are highly encouraged to become Program Assistants. This provides skaters with valuable leadership opportunities and supports the Club to offer a strong CanSkate program which is vital to the overall success of the Club.
As per Skate Canada guidelines, Program Assistants are considered volunteers and not paid employees. Program Assistants must attend a required training session in September and January, sign up to contribute to a minimum of one class per week and notify the Skating Coordinator if they cannot attend their assigned day.
Program Assistants will be recognized by issuing a credit to their account per class, based on skills and experience as determined by the Skating Coordinator. This credit can be used toward the next year’s skating fees and will not be carried over to subsequent years. Only Mayfield Figure Skating Club STARSkate members can volunteer as a Program Assistant unless approval is granted by the Board of Directors.
The Skating Coordinator will determine the Program Assistant schedule.
