Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
Q: What if I can’t afford the Registration Fee?
If you or someone in your family would like to take a program, but you can’t afford it financially, let us know — we can help!
For more information, you can e-mail us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or talk to a volunteer at Registration Night. All enquiries are confidential.
We will do our best to cover the Registration Fee, but would ask that people still pay the $10 Membership Fee (per family, per year).
Our Community Association is a non-profit organization, and has a lot of core operating expenses (e.g. insurance, professional accounting fees for the Annual Financial Review, newsletter, rink operation, etc.). When we set Registration Fees, our goal is to keep programs affordable. At the same time, we need to charge enough to cover both the direct costs of the program (e.g. Instructor Fees, equipment, etc.) and to help cover our core operating expenses.
Q: Why do we charge Registration Fees, and the $10 Membership Fee?
Membership Fees also help cover core operating expenses as well as help us keep connected to people in the community (e.g. the Members of the Association elect the volunteer Board of Directors every year). The Membership Fee is $10 for the whole year (September 1st – August 31st), and is good for the whole family. So, if the $10 Membership is paid in September for Fall programs, it does not need to be paid again for January. Also, our Community Association Membership can be used at most other Community Associations.
If the Association accumulates surplus money over time, it is invested back into the community (e.g. rebuilding the community rink, donations, etc).
