Forest Hill FSC Club Policies
Membership Fees: An annual $40 mandatory Skate Canada Membership fee is charged per skater unless the skater is a registered member at another club and can produce a valid Skate Canada registration card for the current season. An annual club administration fee of $30 per skater will be added in addition to Skate Canada’s fee. Both of these fees are non-transferable and non-refundable.
Registration: Registration will be closed for any session that becomes filled to capacity. No registration is considered complete until the club has received the completed online registration with payment in full.
