An administration fee of $25 will be withheld from the program cost regardless of how many sessions have been missed.The remaining amount will determine the pro-rated fee per session by dividing this amount by the total of sessions for the program.The pro-rated fee per session will then be multiplied by the number of remaining sessions to determine the pro-rated cost of the program. The total pro-rated program cost for each participant includes the base $25 administration free plus the calculated pro-rated amount.

Skaters who want to use ice or attend off-ice sessions that they are not registered for (often referred to as guest or drop-in skating) must first notify the Club at CanmoreSkatingClub@gmail.com and get the session approved at least 24 hours in advance.

Payment is to be made before the skater steps on the ice or class begins. A 20% administration fee will be added to any amounts for drop-in sessions invoiced by the club after the session.
