Hello CSSA Members,

Thank you to those who have been training with us over these past couple of weeks.  Our summer program turnout has been fantastic! We are very proud of how much work you have been putting into your Dryland training, despite the circumstances we have been facing.

With that, it is time to begin to transfer those skills back to the ice! I am pleased to announce that the Fall / Winter Early Bird registration is available on RAMP for the 2020/2021 season. You can pay for Early Bird pricing up to July 31, 2020. Registration opens today, July 10, 2020 at 8:00 pm. In August, normal program prices will resume. There are no changes to this year’s program pricing, so you can expect the same programs fees as the 2019 – 2020 season.

There are a couple of PROMO CODES for the teens that are training 2 or 3 times a week instead of 4. You will need to input these at the checkout to receive the correct pricing for your program of choice. Right now RAMP is categorized based on Intro, Youth, Teen, and Adult divisions, with the Teen groups priced at 4 days. The codes will distinguish the amount of training days you would like to register for, and therefore the price.  Note that a third short-track and long-track practice has been added for Teen 3. See the attached preliminary ice schedule.

Note that a few items are unavailable pending confirmation of costs with various organizations: high performance membership, Seton registration, skate rental for the season and parking passes.  These will be added as soon as they are available.

Please input the appropriate code at the RAMP checkout to ensure you are registering and paying for the correct amount of training days.

CODES will be in bold. The following apply to the Teen 2020 groups:

Teen 1 (T1) 3 times a week: T13DXWEEK

Teen 1 (T1) 2 times a week, either short-track or long-track: T12DXWEEK  

Teen 2 (T2): 3 times a week: T23DXWEEK 

Teen 2 (T2): 2 times a week, either short-track or long-track: T22DXWEEK  

Teen 3 (T3): 3 times a week: T33DXWEEK  

Teen 3 (T3): 2 times a week, either short-track or long-track: T32DXWEEK
