CLUB ICE
Club Ice is designated as ice time for Kansas City FSC / Silver Blades FSC members and skaters of other clubs who have joined KCFSC/SBFSC as associates/non-home club members. This reserved time gives skaters the opportunity to practice their skills during the week. Members can purchase contracts for club ice time for each session, purchase a punchcard, or pay as a walk-on. Skaters who have passed Learn to Skate USA Pre-Free Skate or higher are welcome to participate in the JoCo Club Ice sessions. A coach cannot override this level requirement.

FEES & PAYMENTS
Contract ice fees are outlined above. Please read the entire contract for full details. JoCo Club Ice does not prorate ice fees for skating only a portion of a scheduled session. Payments may be made to the ice monitors in the form of cash or check (payable to JoCo Club Ice) only. There is a $30 fee for any late or returned payments. 

 

CONTRACTS & WALK-ONS
A skater may contract specific session(s) and/or may purchase walk-on sessions.  A maximum of 26 skaters will be allowed on a session.  In the event that a session becomes full, skaters that have contract ice will have first priority.  Walk-on skaters will then be allowed on a first-come, first-serve basis.  If a session is full, then a walk-on skater may take the place of an absent contract skater 5 minutes after the start of the session.  Each skater needs to check-in with the ice monitor upon arrival.  If a skater does not check-in with the ice monitor, the ice monitor is not responsible for the availability of ice for that skater. 

 

MAKE-UP PASSES

Skaters who contract one (1) or two (2) sessions will receive a total of one (1) make-up credit. Skaters who contract three (3) or more sessions will receive a total of two (2) make-up credits. The Friday half hour session will not have make-ups when contracted.

 

CONTRACT ICE BILLING SCHEDULE AND PAYMENT POLICIES

All contracts must be submitted with the 1st scheduled payment in order to be accepted.  Subsequent payments are due as follows based on the payment plan selected:

  •  Lump Sum Payment Plan - Total contract amount is due with Contract Submission – no further payments are due.

CLUB ICE RULES

Please see the contract for additional information on rules, injuries, and other club ice guidelines.

 

All members are expected to follow proper skating etiquette. The rules set forth herein are for the safety of skaters and coaches, so they should be taken seriously.

Current club rules are as follows:

1) All members must be courteous and respectful, both on and off the ice, of property and others. Disrespectful behavior, including but not limited to foul language and/or kicking of the ice or boards, will not be tolerated on club ice sessions. All skaters and professionals must strive to avoid on-ice collisions. Skaters must be careful around those at a higher or lower skating level.

2) The skater whose music is playing has the right-of-way. This skater must be wearing a sash provided by the clubs. Other skaters and coaches must yield to the skater wearing the sash.

3) Skaters in lessons have right-of-way priority immediately below the priority given to the any skater wearing the sash.

4) Skaters and coaches should not linger in any of the four corners and should move out of the area as soon as possible. Spins should be practiced in the middle area of the rink.

5) Skaters who wish to hold extended conversations need to sit on the bench or step off the ice.

6) Observers must watch from the bleachers and are not allowed to stand by the boards.

7) The only individuals that are allowed in the hockey boxes during a club session are contracted skaters, ice monitors, officials, and coaches.

8) Skaters must not wear any electronic devices including phones as they may prevent skaters from being fully aware of others who may have priority. Only coaches may use portable devices for music on the ice.

9) Coaches are limited to two skaters per lesson with the exception of skaters preparing for group numbers for a show.

10) Props must not endanger any skaters on the ice. They may be used, but may not touch the ice.

 

MUSIC GUIDELINES

Any skater may have his or her music played during a club ice session. Music can be played from a CD or on a cell phone provided the phone is unlocked, the music is cued up, and the skater provides an appropriate phone jack.

Skaters should submit their CDs or phone to the announcer’s box at the beginning of a session and CDs/phones will be played in the order submitted with the following exception:

Coaches may “bump” a skater’s music to the top of the order if that skater is in a lesson. 

Coaches may “bump” only once during a given lesson.

There will be one skater request played between each coach requested “bump”.

A piece of music may only be restarted due to technical difficulty. After a skater’s music is played, it will be placed at the end of the line where it may be played again after all requested music has been played at least once and the rotation begins again – time permitting.

Skaters with two programs will have the second program played with the same priority as if requesting the first program a second time – played as time allows after all other submitted music has been played one

time.

Every effort will be made to have a Music Monitor for club ice sessions especially during busy periods prior to competitions and shows. However, in the absence of a session Music Monitor both skaters and coaches must be respectful of each other and support maintaining the above process to the best of their ability.
