Skate Canada has the largest club and individual membership in the world. All skaters skating with Skate Canada affiliated clubs are required to pay the registration/ insurance / safe sport fee of around $40.00 and will receive a Skate Canada membership number.
This number will follow the skater throughout their skating career.
This number allows you to buy-on at other Skate Canada clubs. (This means you can stop in at any club across Canada and pay their fee of about $10 to $20 per hour to skater on their session).
All Skate Canada tests will be filed under your Skate Canada number.
If your skater decides to become a certified coach later in their life, this Skate Canada number continues to follow them.
