Membership Notes

  • Membership is based on the Club year July 1st - June 30th. All skaters under 18 must have a parent/guardian join them. 
  • There is no pro-rating of membership fees regardless of the date membership is entered, so join early!
  • All fees are subject to change without Advance Notice and will not be pro-rated throughout the year. No refunds will be given for the early termination of your membership.
  • Memberships are subject to the approval of the FEFSC Board of Directors.
  • Members must pay their entire membership fee prior to submitting applications for competitions or testing.
  • Visit USFSA.org for more information about USFSA Membership benefits, and fefsc.org for more information about our Club.

U.S. Figure Skating memberships are mandatory for all skaters competing in qualifying and non-qualifying competitions; all skaters taking U.S. Figure Skating figure, moves, free skate, or dance tests; all U.S. Figure Skating judges and officials; and for all Officers and members of the Board of Directors

*SkateSafe Requirements*

  • All Board Members and Coaches must complete SkateSafe Training and Background Check.
  •  Athletes age 18+ competing on a team with at least one minor athlete must complete SkateSafe training. This includes synchro, pairs, ice dance, Theatre On Ice, Showcase and any other teams. We suggest that all members aged 17 and up take the SkateSafe training. The SkateSafe training is free to USFS members.
  • All members over the age of 18 that will be volunteering in any area where they will have contact with athletes (ie locker room volunteers at shows and competitions) will also need to pay for their own background check ($30 for 2 years). There will be some jobs available that do not require contact with athletes; however, please remember, we can offer more opportunities for our athletes when we have more volunteers that can work with them.
  • The 2020-21 season compliance portals will be available beginning June 1 on the Members Only page at usfsaonline.org.  If you have any questions, contact us at fefsc@fefsc.org.

Mandatory Volunteer Requirements or Service Levy:

Per Florida Everblades Figure Skating Club membership rules, each FEFSC member (except Associates, Judges, Officials, Professionals, and Sponsors – although their help is never turned down!) is required to fulfill volunteer requirements for the Florida Everblades Figure Skating Club during the membership period of July 1st through June 30th.

Members, or family members of the member, must volunteer a minimum of 10 hours per year, some of which must be a minimum of one shift during our Annual Labor Day Competition. The remainder of the hours may be served during the Labor Day Competition, during either of our Shows, or at another event. We will give ample opportunities for hours to be fulfilled!

While not preferred by the club, those families who wish to have the volunteer hour requirements waived must pay a fee of $200 at the beginning of the membership year.  This option can be found in the "Donation" tab in your membership account. 

Volunteer hours not served by the end of the fiscal year (July 1st) will be assessed a charge of $20 per hour. Any monies received in lieu of volunteer hours will go into the general fund and will be put towards club expenditures including judges travel expenses, food for events, ice time, coaching fees for shows, etc.

Florida Everblades Figure Skating Club relies on its volunteers to keep our costs at a minimum. Any spare time that members and their families can donate will help to ensure the continued growth and success of our club. We appreciate all of your help and look forward to a great year!

There are many areas of service in which to contribute your hours. We understand that calendars and circumstances change and you may be able to help out more later in the year. We will be sending out email and Facebook reminders asking for volunteers throughout the year. Remember, many hands make light work!

** As allowed by our Bylaws, if this volunteer requirement is not met nor the monetary service levy paid, the Member is subject to a “poor standing” status and certain privileges (i.e.: testing, seminars, etc) may be denied and/or membership will be subject to non-renewal. **
