Dear FEFSC Club Members and Prospective Members,

It is time to register your membership for the 2017/2018 skating season! Membership in US Figure Skating and the Florida Everblades Figure Skating Club for 2017/2018 runs from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018. It is necessary to have your membership current to compete, test, and participate in club activities.

Our club does have some incentives in place for this season:

  • New/Updated Social Membership: Labeled "Supporting Membership" last year, we've changed the name to better reflect the reason for this membership. This is for skaters who do not wish to test or compete, but would like to be involved in the club. The cost is $75 (plus 10 hours of volunteer time) and the benefits are the same as Active Home Club Member except FEFSC Test Privileges and Competitions. This membership includes US Figure Skating Membership.
  • Referral Incentive: For each brand new club member referral which results in new membership status, the referral club member will receive $25 credit which may be used to off-set future testing fees or membership dues.
  • Enrollment after July 1st: If you sign up after July 1st the membership fee will be $175 for Skater and $40 for Parent. * Note, we cannot pro-rate for months missed.
  • Enrollment forms: May be downloaded from our website (www.fefsc.org), picked up at Germain Recreation Desk, or see any FEFSC Board Member for assistance!  If you have an old form, we can revise it to accommodate above.

Your membership supports Florida Everblades FSC and US Figure Skating -a portion of your membership dollars goes to US Figure Skating. The rest of the money supports our club operations right here in Estero, Florida.  Your membership dollars cover our monthly operating expenses for things such as testing fees, storage/pod unit, mail/office expenses, club ice, etc.  The membership monies and fundraising dollars also allow us to have celebrations and functions throughout the year such as parties, competitions, purchase of special equipment, and awards to our skaters.

Club Member Benefits:

  • Becoming a member provides both Skater and Parent the opportunity to meet new people involved in the sport of figure skating. Networking is a great way to educate yourself and grow as a Skater/Skater Parent whether you are involved recreational or competitive track.
  • Participation in club sponsored events such as shows, parties and also an opportunity for Skater/Skater Parent to participate in annual community involvement events for volunteerism.

Our club exists because of its members. We are focusing on growing our membership and club offerings. All of our club’s success comes from its volunteers and we thank our members for the hours given.

This year volunteer hours will continue to be tracked by signing up on SignUp.com or reporting via the web site.   With all members in the club engaged, we can do great things.
