WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO VOTE

Every skater (Pre-CanSkate, CanSkate, Pre-Junior, Junior and Senior) is a member of the CBS Skating Club. Each Member of the CBS Skating Club is entitled to one vote. Parents cast votes for skaters under 18. Votes are restricted to 1 vote per person over the age of 18, so families with more than one member, must have more than one person over the age of 18 present to cast more than one vote. Hope to see you all at the AGM! We look forward to working with you in the 2016-2017 season. 

The roles and responsibilities that are expected from our board members can be found in our Constitution (click here). If you wish to be a member of our board, you must be able to attend at least 80% of our monthly meetings (generally 10 per year). As well as communicate on the clubs behalf in a positive and professional manner. You also must commit to performing at least 90% of you job description independently, once you have received proper training. Not all meetings require everyone, therefore a meeting may be called for just the Core Executive or it may be called for the Full Board. There will also be meetings throughout the year where coordinators and/or committees will be invited to attend.  

 

Is there Skating in the Summer?

Our Club currently runs two seasons a year - Fall (Sept/Oct - Dec) and Winter (Jan - Mar/Apr).  Usually registration begins the month prior to the begining of the season.

Many of our skaters do participate in off-season skating.  Off-season sessions are hosted by the Avalon Region and Skate NL (not by the CBS Skating Club) and locations do vary.  Most of these programs are popular and require registration in March.

Spring/Fall - Avalon Region

Spring (6 weeks from Apr-June) & Fall (4 weeks Aug-Sept) Skate is hosted by the Avalon Region and registration occurs in February/March of each year.  Sessions take place at various arenas in the Avalon region, this year it is at the Glacier and Twin Rinks.  These sessions are for Pre-Junior (CanSkate 4+) to Competitive Figure Skaters.  Notel: Coaching must be pre-arranged prior to registering.

The Region also puts off CanSkate sessions for Canskate 2-6 during the Spring/Fall schedule as well (registration typically is in March of each year - deadline this year was April 6th). Coaching is included in this program.

Summer - NL Skating Academy

In the Summer, Skate NL offers 6 weeks of summer day sessions at their NL Skating Academy.  These sessions are for Pre-Junior (CanSkate 4+) to Competitive Figure Skaters.  Registration opens in March and concludes in May.  Registration details are available on the Skate NL registration website: skatenf.uplifterinc.com.  Note: Coaching must be pre-arranged prior to registering.
