Membership Application Form

****** PART 1 - CLUB MEMBERSHIP 2017 PERSONAL DETAILS *****
Welcome to the club membership application form.
We have tried to keep these forms simple, quick and convenient to fill out. As a result, these forms will work quite well from phones, tablets or PCs.
A (this) membership application form needs filling out each year as membership expires on December 31st of each year. We need one form per member that will join Skate Australia. If you are joining the club but not Skate Australia (for example as part of a club 'family membership', you can share a form with the main skater by selecting the family membership option).

"Scenarios"-
  • Two parents and four kids in total living at home, but only 2 of the 4 kids will skate, you only need to fill out 2 forms, and the other 4 family members need to be mentioned on one of, or both of the forms.
  • Two parents and four kids in total living at home, but only 1 of the 4 kids will skate, you only need to fill out 1 form, and if choosing a family membership, the other 5 family members need to be mentioned on the form. If joining as a single member, then only one form is required with guardian information.
  • Two parents and two kids in total living at home, One parent and one child will skate. Two forms are required, suggested to fill in a family application, notifying the other family members on one of or both forms.

    Club Training Type and Days(*)

    You must select a valid training type

    This tells us which days to register this applicant for.
    You may choose any or all days depending on your budget, days free that you have or the speed that you want to improve. Naturally the more time people can spend on their skates training, the faster the skills are acquired etc.
    This system is flexible and can fit around other activities our members enjoy. We fully understand that skating (whilst awesome) will not be the only activity in your lives.

    I agree to pay training fees in accordance with the policies and procedures of the club.(*)

    This field needs to be agreed to.

    Training fees are a commitment for the remainder of the calendar year for whichever year this application refers to.
    Training fees pay for the club's hiring of our training venue(s), therefore it is important that these fees are paid on time. Fees are invoiced monthly as per the rates above, you may pay weekly or fortnightly as long as fee commitments are met before the next calendar month. For those who become sick or injured, We have procedures in place called 'A Medical Exemption'.
    Medical Exemptions are for sickness or injury that will stop skaters from training for a period of 3 weeks or longer in a single block and MUST be accompanied by a doctors certificate.
    Skaters may of course cease training at any time through the year which will preclude them from training further with the club at any future time until fees that are owed are paid. Note that without an approved exemption, fees still accrue from month to month even after training ceases.
    Case in point.
    A skater trains from January to May and then simply stops turning up and paying with no notice, exemption or explanation. The skater makes a return to training in July, so this skater would also owe fees from June despite not training.

    Please understand that we need a relative amount of certainty with regard to membership numbers and training fees income vs the costs to operate the club, so we can maintain some order within the clubs accounting system.
    We are a not for profit organisation with the lowest unit cost per skater of any QLD club.

    Joining as a training coach, a coaching application is requried.(*)

    FLOOR RULES

    · Coaches and skaters are the ONLY people allowed on the floor during Club time. Parents and non-skating persons are not permitted on the floor - this includes taking a ‘short-cut’ through the mini-rink. This is an INSURANCE issue.

    · The basic rule on the floor is to be courteous to all other skaters, and to ensure that other skaters who are training are not obstructed if at all possible. There will be times when this is not possible. However a little common sense and an awareness of what is happening around you will avoid many problems.

    There are a few simple right-of-way rules to avoid collisions on the floor. These rules apply to all skaters, and are applied in the following order:

    1. Arm bands (lessons) with their routine music playing.

    2. Armbands (lessons) without their routine music playing.

    3. Skaters without armbands.

    · Up to 4 single skaters may participate in a shared lesson.

    · Up to 4 skaters may train in a group

    · Coaches must also be aware of skaters on the floor, and make every effort not to obstruct skaters.

    · Where possible, try not stop and/or congregate in groups on the rink surface.

    · ALL Coaches are required to be aware of the Club rules regarding skaters eating on the floor. Food is not permitted on the rink or along the side of the rink.


    GENERAL RULES

    · All skaters within the Club are equal.

    · To ensure that the Club is always welcome at the rink, the rink must be left in a clean and tidy condition after all training sessions. This includes the toilet facilities.

    · To assist Rink Management, the venue must be empty by 9.15pm on a Monday and Wednesday night. Our hire time ends at 9pm – please do the right thing and clean up after yourselves and clear the venue as soon as possible.

    · Skaters must at all times be pleasant, courteous, and show respect to the management, coaches, staff, parents and members of other clubs, whether at training or at tests or competitions.

    · Bad language will not be tolerated for any reason.

    · No sitting on the floor or barrier. No sliding across the floor on your backside or other inappropriate behaviour.

    · Skaters must not act in any way that can be seen as overbearing or bullying towards each other, especially to a minor. If you feel a member, is not behaving appropriately, talk with a Coach or your Committee so it can be dealt with promptly and effectively.

    · Any skaters found to be doing the wrong thing or breaking floor rules will be referred to their Coach.

    · First Coach or Committee member to arrive at the rink for training time will make sure the table, music (ipod), signs, 2 bottles of water and first aid box are out ready. Last Coach or Committee member to leave will make sure it is all packed away in the correct location. It is not to be left to one person if more than one Coach or Committee member are present at the start or end of a training session. No training will start until the floor is checked for debris and all equipment is unpacked and setup. Capable skaters and parents may assist coaches or committee members with the setting up of the table etc.


    GENERAL ARTISTIC CLUB RULES

    · The Club charges a monthly training fee; this must be paid within 14 days of invoice.

    · Skaters must be in the rink at least 15 minutes before a lesson, to stretch and warm up, except in the case of lessons at the beginning of a training session. Skaters should have their training books, armbands and drink bottles ready. (Suggest putting armbands on your drink bottle). Skaters should not need to leave the floor once their lesson is called.

    · The Club will not be liable for injuries suffered during training.

    · Coaches have priority use of the music system at any given time during training sessions and will utilise the music rostering system, so they no longer have to wait in queue for music while in lessons.

    · Skaters wishing to attend a class or training session at another club must advise their coach prior to attending.

    · The purchase of all skates (new or second hand) or other skating equipment (wheels, bearings, costumes) should always involve your coach. This way you can be assured you will be buying the correct equipment the first time, and will potentially save money and frustration.

    Understanding and adhering to these guidelines (rules) will facilitate a stable environment for skaters to train and for the club to grow and mature.

    --------------------


    HEALTH AND SAFETY DURING TRAINING

    · The practice of sharing drink bottles is strictly forbidden. Every skater must bring his or her own drink bottle and sweat towel to all training sessions. Sweat towels may be placed along the eastern wall (overlooking the carpark) on the barrier.

    · Drink bottles are not to be placed on any of the rink barriers. This is a dangerous practise for obvious reasons. Drink bottles are to be left on a dedicated drink bottle table which will be located just adjacent to the DJ box. Towels to absorb spillage and condensation will be on this table and replacement water will be made available in this location. A permanent marker (so that skaters can label their bottles if required) will also be left on this table.

    · No electronic devices including iPods, phones, tablets, laptops etc are permitted on the skating surface, barrier or drinks table with the exception of Coaches. Having just one earpiece in during Figures practise leaves skaters vulnerable to collision. Please leave it all in your skate bag for safe keeping, or if important calls are expected, leave your phone with a responsible party off-rink (Parent, Committee member).

    · Do not leave bags where other skaters can trip over them.

    · No electronic devices including iPods, phones, tablets, laptops etc are permitted on the skating surface, barrier or drinks table with the exception of Coaches.

    Having just one earpiece in during Figures practise leaves skaters vulnerable to collision. Please leave it all in your skate bag for safe keeping, or if important calls are expected, leave your phone with a responsible party off-rink (Parent, Committee member).

    · The club will not accept liability for any valuables left unattended during training.

    · Food is not permitted on the rink or down the side of the rink as requested by Rink Management.

    PRIVATE LESSONS

    · Private lessons during club training sessions are only available to club members, except as otherwise approved by the Club Executive.

    · If private lessons are required outside Club times, then private floor hire must be arranged by the skater or the coach. For insurance requirements, training time must be booked in the name of the club and not hired privately. Coaches insurance through Skate Australia is only valid in club sponsored training times, not times privately hired by an individual.

    · Skaters are free to choose their own coach.

    · Each Coach has different rules, and the skater must abide by the Coach’s rules (as long as these rules are in accordance with Club Rules). 24 hours notice should be given, where possible, if a skater needs to cancel a lesson. If through exceptional circumstances a skater is late or lessons cannot be attended, it will be up to Coaches discretion whether lessons are cancelled, moved and if payment is still required.

    · Coaches have the final say on who nominates for events – not skaters, parents or the Committee.

    Do you acknowledge that Revolutions RSCi has a floor rules policy(*)
    You must agree to continue

     

    Please read the fund raising statement carefully.

    REVOLUTIONS ROLLER SPORTS FUND RAISING FAIR GO POLICY
    Revolutions Roller Sports Club holds fund raising events at regular intervals throughout the calendar year. The purpose of the fund raising can range from subsidising training fees through to various projects the Club and/or Committee embark upon though the year.

    As a member of Revolutions there is a desire on the club's part that yourself as a member or a representative from your family will make themselves available to participate in fund raising activities either in "Lead up to the event support" or in particular with "Boots on the ground attendance at events".

    A small amount of participation from a large portion of the membership is far more appealing than a large contribution from a small portion of the membership.

    Fund raising contributions are all recorded and worked out within a roster to try and make the system fair and equitable.

    Some fund raising initiatives will be for general club wide disbursement and other initiatives will benefit those directly active in particular activities, so in some cases participation will be required to have funds allocated to you.

    Revolutions is a family and we ask you to help us work toward a common goal for all and toward all the skater's best interests.

    All payments made to skaters from fund raising will go to their fund raising account and can be accessed anytime via the Treasurer for any skating expense.

    Do you agree to the Revolutions 'Fair Go' fund raising policy(*)

    You must make a choice here

    NOTE-
    You have chosen the option to not participate in our fund raising programs.
    Members that are not involved in fund raising may not expect to receive benefits that fund raising opportunities provide the club in relation to lower unit costs, equipment acquisition, any access to fund raising programs denoted as special programs.
    At any time the club may find it necessary to levy members not active in fund raising, although at present a levy is not planned.

    Do you understand the implications of not being involved in fund raising programs(*)

    Invalid Input

    Do you acknowledge that Revolutions RSCi has a policies and procedures manual that is freely available to members and membership applicants (*)
    This needs to be agreed to.

    Whilst all rules are common sense based, we would encourage all members to read through the document before ticking the box. The document is available at the rink, it is available on our website and can be linked directly here (in a new tab or window).
    Policies and procedures manual




    Due to the prevalence of social media and people's ability to insult or cause harm to others whilst hiding behind a keyboard, Revolutions has a no tolerance policy on members abusing other members or causing damage to the club's good name and reputation within the social media arena. Assaults, insults and the like to club or members on Social media will be treated as if it were done in person or in any other written (or video) format. Please read through the Policies and Procedures manual for full details.

    I understand the T-shirt is $15 extra (above the membership fee) and is a reqruiement of new membership(*)

    New memberships or those returning to the club after some time away are required to purchase a club t-shirt as part of membership.

     
    Fees Description.

    Some important things to note regarding our club and it's relationship with the rink and how it pertains to costs and fees for members.

  • Revolutions Roller Sports Club and Digi Rollerskating Rink are not the same entity.
  • Revolutions buys training time for the club from Digi Rollerskating (You pay us, we pay them).
  • As of 2017 this training time purchase/hire costs around $6000 per month.
  • Revolutions Roller Sports Club is the lowest cost artistic club and also offers the most training time of any club in Queensland.
  • Low costs are attributed to our club membership numbers and a focus on community-based fundraising.


    Where does your money go?

  • Revolutions Roller Sports Club charges a training fee based on the number of days a skater chooses to train. This basic fee which applies to all skating members is designed to cover our rink hire fees to Digi Rollerskating Rink. As an example, you will pay somewhere between $55 and $155 per month based on your earlier choice in this document. The more days you train, the more discount is applied as an encouragement to train more and to keep the costs under control as members become more proficient and require more training time.
    Revolutions makes forward estimates based on membership types and numbers, combined with rink hire charges to set rates for training. Training fees are invoiced each month with payment due thereafter.

  • Revolutions offers classes for basic skill development. Classes cost $5 per class. This fee is charged on the day and is over and above monthly training fees. All skaters should do the class as it maintains a good skating foundation. No one is ever too good to refine their basic skills. Development skaters are required to do this class unless they have chosen a coach and are undertaking private lessons. This is because, without a class or a coach, skaters are not learning any skills.
    Class fees are not paid to coaches, and are ploughed back into general revenue to keep training fees at the lowest possible level. The side benefit on club finances is that the more people that support the class, the less pressure is put on trainng fees.

  • Revolutions has over 10 coaches available for private lessons. All coaches have either been international skaters themselves, or have (or still are) producing champions across the sport from novice grades through to international grades. As you have joined an Artistic Rollerskating Club, we presume that at some point this membership application will lead to this new member competing for the club. As all nominations for competition have to be put forward by coaches, all members are encouraged to choose a coach ASAP. Development members (not competing) are not required to choose a coach (the class is mandatory), however competitive members need to select their coach and engage with them for lessons within the first 2 months of membership.

    Lesson fees vary from coach to coach, and lesson fees are paid directly to coaches (lesson fees are over and above training and class fees).


    To be totally up front with all new members, the ongoing costs for a skater training 1 day per week, attending the Saturday basics class each week and having one private lesson per week (one on one) with a coach would be costing $28 per week.

    To recap,
  • Skate Australia fees and club membership fees are charged once per calendar year. These fees are invoiced by the club.
  • Skate Australia fees are forwarded to the national association and give the applicant some insurance cover.
  • Training fees are invoiced monthly by the club, with payment due ASAP. These fees are paid to Digi to cover our rink hire charges.
  • Class fees instead of paying coaches are put back into the club's general revenue to subsidise monthly training fees further.
  • Coaches' private lesson fees are an agreement between the skater/family and the coach(es) involved. Payment goes directly to coaches.
  • Uniforms and equipment are PAYG
  • There are small charges for competitions if membership sought is competitive.

    We hope this goes some way to explaining the club's cost structure, and that we do our utmost to keep prices to their lowest level.
