FEES

Please add $44 Skate Canada fee to first registration for each skater which covers Skate Canada membership and insurance from September 1, 2022 – August 31, 2023. If your contact address is not in Mississauga, please add the non-resident fee of $60 per skating season for each skater which is submitted directly to the City of Mississauga.

MFSC participates in the Skate Ontario Promotional Contest.  Each skater will receive a booklet of 20 lottery tickets valued at $40.00 that they may sell or keep themselves. The $40.00 will be charged at the time of registration. If the skater sells all of their tickets, the $40.00 is recouped by the skater.  A draw will be held by Skate Ontario in June 2023. These funds help to subsidize ice and program costs.
