Withdrawal, Refund and Cancelled Session Policy

When you register for a skating program with the Hillsburgh Erin Skating Club, Skaters are required to become a member of Skate Canada. This annual fee is valid from September 1 to August 31 (you will only pay it once during a season, no matter how many sessions the skater registers for). It includes insurance coverage, along with access to all Skate Canada programs. Please note that your skater information will be shared with Skate Canada. This fee does not stay with the club but is sent on to Skate Canada upon registration and before any lessons have started.

Skate Canada fees are 100% non-refundable.


We are fully self-funded and receive no government/municipal subsidies. Our ice time allocation, coaching contracts and costs are decided based on registration numbers.

For refunds prior to the start of the program, please email the club at Please include your name, the skater(s) name(s) and your invoice number to help us arrange a swift refund.

Medical/Injury requests for refunds should be directed to the Board of Directors immediately in writing at and will only be considered where medical documentation can be provided to support a prolonged absence. 

All refunds approved for medical reasons or received prior to the start of the program will be less the Cancellation fee and Skate Canada fee noted below.

  • $40 HESC Cancellation Fee 

  • $60.00 Skate Canada Membership Fee

Missed Classes 

Participants are to attend all classes as scheduled for the program in which they are registered. In the

event that a participant is unable to attend a scheduled class(es) and/or make-up class(es), refunds for the missed class(es) will not be provided.

There are no opportunities for make-up sessions when sessions are missed for personal reasons and no make-up sessions will be provided for cancellations due to inclement weather where the coaches are unable to attend. 

Cancelled Sessions 

In the event that inclement weather is forecast and the coaches are willing to travel, the sessions will be on. You will be notified by 3pm on the day of the session if the session is to be cancelled due to inclement weather.

In the event that the Arena is closed by the town due to mechanical/maintenance issues, all efforts will be made to provide make-up sessions when able based on Coach and ice availability. However, there is no guarantee that make-up sessions will be possible.
