MEMBERSHIP ENTITLEMENTS

 To train with us, members need to contribute toward the cost of hiring our venue. We call this our training fee. As new members to our sport, once you approach Star 4 level you are welcome to make application to join our club and use all the services that the club offers. This is to ensure that skaters have reached a minimum level of competency for safety reasons and keeping your costs down.

Revolutions offers:-

  • Dedicated time for Artistic Training.
    This is available to all members at any time in between classes and your own individual private lessons (if applicable).
  • Class activities. Skills based training to build a strong foundation for core skating skills and good basics. All new members should attend the classes to build these skills.
  • Private lessons. All private lesson and class tutors are Accredited Coaches with Skate Australia or student coaches actively acquiring their qualifications. The student coaches are constantly supervised by Advanced, Elite and Mentor level accredited coaches.

All Revolutions skaters receive half price admission to all Digi public skating sessions upon presentation of your membership card to Digi staff.

COSTS

There are two bodies that you need to be a member of in order to skate with us

  1. Revolutions (Our Club)
  2. Skate Australia/Queensland (Our National/State sporting body).

Membership of Revolutions in 2017 can be as individuals at $35 or $70 per family per year.
Membership of Skate Australia in 2017 is $100 for the year (Competitive) or $75 per year (Development). Development allows members to participate in the 2016 Christmas show skate and bronze level proficiency tests. The Skate Australia membership is necessary from a registration and insurance standpoint. Membership fees to Skate Australia are paid through us when you join and expire at the end of each skating year.

Joining Skate Australia after November 1st, gives you a full 14 months of membership of the national association (through to December  of the following calendar year).

 

Classes

Each 1 hour class costs $5.00.

Lessons

Private lessons cost  vary a little, however the average price is $10 or less per 15 minutes. Group lessons are also available which can assist in lowering costs.

Other basic costs that should be considered are leotards, stockings, skates themselves and there are small fees to enter competitions when that time comes. We try very hard to keep costs down and we would be on par or cheaper than most other sports.

COSTS TABLE

Fee Type Amount
Club Membership fee for 2017 (Normally $35/single and $70/family) $35
National sporting body fee Development level (once per year) $75-$100
Weekly ongoing training cost (Can be paid weekly or monthly) From $12.80 per week
Additional family members that join the club receive 20% discount from the training fee above, however still need to pay the full price for the National sporting body and classes.

Training and membership fees can be paid by cheque or direct deposit. EFTPOS facilities are also available (See Greg). Classes and private lessons are PAYG cash payments.

What is Tiered training?

Our members and people looking to become members come from all walks of life and rigid training hours or arrangements may not be suitable for people. We try to cater for the needs of as many people as possible so that we can accommodate people’s love for our sport.

In its simplest form:-

  • Tier 1 is the top tier training and operates 4 days per week.
  • Tier 2 is the intermediate tier and operates 3 days per week.
  • Tier 3 is the elementary tier and operates 2 days per week.
  • Tier 4 is the novice tier and operates 1 day per week.

Tier 4 is split up into Development and Competitive.
Casual attendance at training sessions is up to $15 per session
(to attend attitional days not in your fee package).

Tier 4  (Development) is a non-competitive structure.  To be in Tier 4d, Saturday is the only day available, and Saturday lunchtime class is compulsory.

As a club, we train 4 days per week in total and as a Tier 4c, 3 or Tier 2 member you can decide what day(s) best suit you. You nominate your day(s) and you can change your day(s) should your circumstances change. It’s really very flexible and simple.

Fund Raising Activities.

Revolutions conducts fund raising activities throughout the year. In an effort to spread the burden amongst members equally, the mananagment committee keeps a register of participation. It is an expectation that members will make themselves available to contribute toward events where needed. With all members contributing evenly, the requirement for each member is lowered and the spread of effort amongst our members is fairly shared.

Eligibility to join.

To join our club as an artistic skater, you must have either attained a Star 3 level at any accredited Learn to Skate program (any rink), or be able to demonstrate an ability to skate at that level (ie skaters coming back to the sport or people that can already skate proficiently). The rink operated learn to skate programs offer a fun and safe way to learn how to skate while also grounding skaters in the basics of good technique. Our coaches can make a determination of skaters looking to join and offer advice as to the best placement either in the Learn to Skate Program, or for entrance directly into the Club. In other words, based on an individual’s history/skill, you may be able to skip some star levels or enter the Club directly.

Exemptions to fees

Training fee exemptions must be applied for and medical certificates are required. A separate certificate is required per calendar month that an exemption is sought.

 

Revolutions Management Committee wishes all our skaters the best for the current skating year!
