There are so many exciting benefits of the new program and we would like to share with you a few things about it. To start, you probably noticed the Learn to Skate program is now a Skating Academy. It is designed to encompass all aspects of ice skating. We'll be offering the same technical classes you've all enjoyed in the previous system, but we'll now be offering many specialty classes. Some of the exciting new classes will be Beginner and Advanced Spin classes, Advanced Stroking classes, Axel and Double Jump Classes, Future Stars Class as well as Moves in the Field classes. Even more classes will be introduced in the future.

Public Session and Rental Skates Included

We feel the kids who take classes have limited time to practice their skills at SC Iceplex so we are happy to announce public session times will be extended on class days. Not only that, rental skates and public sessions will be included on the day of your class with your paid membership and dues! On Mondays public session will go from 1:00pm to 4:45pm and classes will start at 5:00pm immediately after the Zamboni ice cut. Saturday classes will go until 11:45am and public session will start at 12:00pm noon and run until 3:00pm. It is a great opportunity to practice your skills directly before your class on Monday or right after your class on Saturday. Speak with one of our professional coaching staff to set up a private lesson on the new extended publics. Nothing beats one on one attention to grasp and perfect a skill!

Overview

One of the biggest changes with the new system is the "ongoing class" structure and verses the "8 week semester" system. Semesters carry with them inherent disadvantages compared to ongoing classes. After your first class in the new system you will always know where your class is and won't have to go looking for your class or Coach every 8 weeks. When your skater is tested it will be done individually and is not defined by a testing session on the 8th week. This allows skaters to move up at their own pace and now that Public Sessions are included on the day of their class, at convenient times, we hope they improve faster than in the previous system. When kids move up at their own pace they are happier, enjoy the activity more and don't have the pressure of a testing deadline.

Here is a list of the benefits with our membership and monthly dues program:

  • No more looking for your class every 8 weeks!
  • No more standing around in the cold on test days!
  • Individual Testing!
  • One time Registration! 
  • Automatically billed monthly!
  • Never have to come by the reception desk unless you want to make changes!
  • Client Scan Card to quickly pull up your membership and account information!
  • No more deadlines to sign up!
  • Add or remove a classes with ease!
  • Suspend or cancel a membership with ease!
  • Easy to do make-ups!
  • Online account management from home!
  • SC Iceplex Class Controller in charge of testing and communication with parents and skaters!
  • Sticker/Button reward system!
  • Special fun days like Halloween parties and Mini Recital Days!
  • Certificates and Wall of Fame!

 

Registration and Auto Billing

With the new system you will only have to register once, not every 8 weeks. Our auto billing system is state of the art. It is quadruple encrypted and your credit card number is never seen after it is swiped and connected to your account. It is superior to Home Depot's and Target's systems.

Every 1st of the month members are billed.

Iceplex Fun Card/Stickers for Classes and Publics

Everyone who is a part of SC Icplex programs will receive an Iceplex Fun Card. In order to attend classes or use the public session privilege your card must be scanned at the reception desk. Your account will pop up on our screen and the cashier will issue you a sticker to attend classes and or the public session.

Adding or Taking Away Classes

Adding or taking away a classes is done with ease. Come into the rink and fill out a simple form and your request will go into effect the following week.

Membership Suspension or Cancelation

When you are a member in good standing, once a year for $15 you may hold/suspend you membership for up to 3 months. This holding of your membership allows you to return to our Skating Academy without having to renew a membership. Remember you can only take advantage of make-up classes and public session privileges when you are paying monthly dues. While a membership is suspended it also suspends the make-up classes and publics.

Cancelling is easy too. In person, at the rink, fill out a cancellation form 10 days before the auto billing date and your membership will be cancelled.

Make-Up Classes

Making up classes has never been easier. Since classes are ongoing you have up to 3 months to make up a class. If you're sick or have another engagement one week, you can always come in on another day other than your registered class day and make up a class. You can even make up a class on one of our specialty classes if you meet the minimum level requirement. Our state of the art software allows our staff to know what class you may have missed to help you take the right make up class. It is important to note that to take advantage of make-ups you must maintain you monthly dues.

Button Reward Program

The button reward system helps skaters and parents track progress. Each skater will be given a button and must wear their button to every class. On the buttons are the skills for the classes your skater is taking. When the coach of their class sees your skater has become proficient at a skill, they will place a sticker next to that criteria. Once your skater has filled up their button with stickers, the class coach will call over the class controller. The class controller takes the skater's name and lets them know they will be back to test them. Near the end of the class the student will be taken to the side of the class by the controller to be tested individually. If the skater passes they will receive a certificate, a new button for the next class and have their photo taken to be placed on the new wall of fame and put in our weekly emailed newsletter. Specialty Classes are to enhance the technical classes and do not have the sticker/button reward system.

Class Controller

There will always be a class controller on hand at every class. Their job is to:

  • Inform parents about information pertaining to the rink like recitals, ice shows, competitions, new classes, student progress and much more.

  • Individually test skaters

  • Assist students to the proper class

  • Make the class certificates

  • Take the photos of students who pass tests

  • Make sure students who pass are moved in our computer system to their new class

Online Account Management

Soon you'll be able to create your own SC Iceplex online account. With this account you'll be able to manage how much money is on your account, sign up for ice shows, recitals, camps, book birthday parties, see what class your skater is in, put money on your account and more.
