St. Peters Figure Skating Association (SPFSA) Membership Information

Hello! 

We have missed seeing you all around the rink and hope this finds you and your family safe. Without all of our usual events throughout the Spring, it is hard to believe, but it is now time to renew your SPFSA membership for the 2020-21 season! 


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the incurred hardships to many families, SPFSA is discounting several types of memberships for the 2020-21 season. All discounts are noted in italics in the membership descriptions below. 


Additionally, all volunteer deposits that were paid for the 2019-20 season will rollover in full to the 2020-21 season, and no new volunteer deposits will be charged. 

Only members who have volunteer credits and are not returning for the 2020-21 season may request a refund of their fees based on hours volunteered (up to 15). Due to the shortened season, members with any volunteer credits, will receive an additional five hours of credit, not to exceed 15. For example, a member worked six volunteer hours. He/she will receive an additional five hours, for a total credit of 11 hours, and a refund of $110 will be issued. There is no additional credit for a member with no volunteer hours. Non-returning members should email Finance@spfsaonline.com to confirm/request their refund, if applicable. 

If you have any questions regarding membership, please email spfsamembership@gmail.com. We look forward to getting back to the rink and back to normal!

MEMBERSHIP OPTIONS, FEES, DEPOSITS, AND OTHER INFORMATION 


A summary of all levels of membership and the corresponding prices and volunteer hours are below. 


We are pleased to continue our Learn to Skate USA memberships through USFS for the 2020-21 season for our newer skaters. This level of membership is for skaters who have not and do not intend to test at the USFS Pre-Preliminary Moves in the Field and/or free skate levels or above prior to July 1, 2021. If you do test later in the year, you will have to upgrade your membership, which will incur additional charges. PLEASE CONSULT WITH YOUR COACH PRIOR TO SIGNING UP FOR OR RENEWING A LEARN TO SKATE USA (LTS) MEMBERSHIP. 


For the 2020-21 season only: 

All renewing members’ volunteer deposits will roll into the 2020-21 season in full. No deposits will be paid by new or renewing members. The volunteer requirement remains in place. At the end of the 2020-21 season, we will resume the standard volunteer deposit procedure. 

New members and upgrading members will not have made the full deposit for their membership type. Our club is run completely by volunteers, and we ask that you please still fulfill the commitment for your 2020-21 membership type. For example, you were a LTS member with a five hour commitment, but you upgrade to a full USFS member, we ask that you help us to help you by fulfilling your 15 hour full USFS member commitment. (Volunteer credits at the end of the 2020-21 season will be based on the original amount deposited at the start of the 2019-20 season.) 


Volunteer commitment deposits are credited back at the rate of $10/hour. For example. If you have a requirement of 15 hours, and you serve only five of those, you will receive a credit of $50 on your membership renewal. If you fulfill all 15 or more, you will receive a credit of $150 toward the next season’s fees. 


A member not renewing his or her membership with SPFSA may request a refund of the remaining volunteer commitment deposit. This request must be made via email to Finance@spfsaonline.com within one year of the membership expiration date. Any funds remaining after one year will be considered a donation to SPFSA. The same applies to any non-fundraising money remaining in a member’s individual account. 


For members not renewing for the 2020-21 season only: 

A member not renewing his or her membership with SPFSA who has volunteer hours will be credited for volunteer hours worked, plus an additional five hours due to the shortened season. For example, you earned seven volunteer hours. You will be credited an additional five fours for a total of 12. No additional credit will be given if no volunteer hours were worked. 


If you do not recall your EntryEeze password, please use the *forgot your password* link available in the existing members section. 

St. Peters Figure Skating Association looks forward to another great season!
