MFSCH would like to thank all our coaches for all the time and energy you spend with the skaters and for all that you do for the club. As a member of U.S. Figure Skating, MFSCH is obligated to abide by the rules and by-laws of U.S. Figure Skating.
These rules are to ensure the safety and welfare of our skaters and to ensure our coaches are well educated and protected as contractors.
We have encountered some issues recently concerning a few new coach 2015-2016 membership applications/requests with MFSCH which have forced us to revise our policies, rules and regulations concerning coach memberships with MFSCH.
Changes for renewing coach and new coach memberships:
· All renewing coach memberships will be required to have two full consecutive coach membership years with MFSCH in order to receive the RENEWING COACH pricing starting 2016-2017 season.
· Coach memberships with MFSCH will require that applicants coach at our home rink (Ice Skate USA Memorial City) in order to become a coach member of MFSCH effective 2015-2016 season.
· A printed USFSA Coach Card (see links below) will have to be presented to Membership Chair at time of coach registration/renewal for MFSCH coach membership effective July 1, 2015.
MFSCH is responsible for paying the USFSA fees for our MFSCH RENEWING COACH memberships which is a benefit that MFSCH offers our coaches. MFSCH receives no income from this type membership. All other coach memberships for the 2016-2017 season will encounter a fee set by the MFSCH Board.
