Pre-Junior Membership Policies

Parent Role

The term “parent” refers to parents and guardians of skaters.

For skaters under 12 years old, a parent must be present in the arena at all times during the skater's session.

Parents and their skaters will follow the Club’s Ice Etiquette Rules or they will be asked to leave the ice rink.

The parent is a member of MFSC with full voting rights from the date of registration until August 31 of the current skating season.

Communications

MFSC uses its website, www.mississaugafsc.com, and email to communicate important information to its parent members. It is the responsibility of each member to ensure that the club has the correct email on file and to regularly check the website and email for updates.  Members may update their email subscription preferences at any time by logging in to their profile and updating their preferences under ‘My Account’, ‘My Message Lists’ and clicking the ‘Update’ button.  If a member chooses to opt out of electronic communications from MFSC, they acknowledge that they may not receive any important communications regarding club activities and notices regarding program information.

Members will not be contacted by other means unless there is an emergency.
