Registration for Fall & Winter Programs is now open on IceReg:  EARLY BIRD PRICING ENDS AUGUST 8.  In addition to registering your skater(s) for club programs, two parents/guardians must also be registered as volunteers (or coaches or officials) by selecting “Add a Participant”. This is required for insurance purposes as parents volunteer at competitions, casinos, on-ice, placing and removing mats, etc.  In the past this was all done in the background by the CSSA Registrar but prices always included a family membership in past years.  If a parent/guardian is an accredited coach or official, the parent/guardian will register as such and not as a volunteer.  An Official or Coach will be $10 more than a Volunteer membership.  If you are a single parent/guardian family, then just register one volunteer (or coach or official). All Youth, Teen, and Adult programs will charge 50% upfront, and remaining 50% will be charged on Oct 31st. To register, please click on the IceReg link below.
