Pre-Registration for Ice Arena Freestyle sessions and Off-ice classes

Please make sure you are pre-registering online for all your sessions and off-ice classes that your skater(s) are planning to attend. If you need to cancel, you MUST email Jessica BEFORE the session occurs at jessica.walker@parkcity.org.

Additionally, please make sure that your skater checks in with the front desk for all Freestyles sessions, Public Skate sessions and ice arena Off-ice classes. They must also check themselves in manually for all early morning freestyle sessions. This is how the rink is tracking attendance for potential contact tracing information should it become necessary.


IMPORTANT - Club Ice Policies and Procedures

A few important things to note regarding participating in Club Ice with PCSC:

  1. Skaters with Club Ice Packages must RSVP for each session every week.
    • As we did last year, we will be using SportsEngine to track skater attendance on club ice sessions. Any skater who registered for one or more club ice packages will be rostered to each session's "team" in the SportsEngine app.
    • Please download SportsEngine on your smartphone's app store, and login with the credentials you used to sign up for club membership, club ice, etc.
    • To RSVP - Open the App, click the calendar Schedule icon at the bottom > tap "Yes", "Maybe" or "No" (depending on whether your skater will or will not attend) for each 30-minute session that your skater is signed up for. 
    • Ice monitors will give away spots to drop-in skaters if your skater has not arrived 5 minutes after the start of the session.

 

  1. Covid-19 Compliance: 
    • Any skater that attends a club ice session agrees that they:
      • Have not had a fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, chills, muscle aches, loss of taste or smell or GI distress in the last 48 hours
      • AND have not had contact with anyone with or suspected to have COVID in the last 14 days.
    • The Ice Arena continues to operate in accordance with the Governor’s Phased Guidelines 4.10 and with the Summit County Mask Ordnance.
      • The ice surface capacity is limited to 20 people when face coverings/face shields are not worn. 
      • FSCPC Club Ice will follow the Park City Ice Arena's protocols. Click Here to be directed to the PCIA stabilization phase page.
      • PCIA requires all skaters to complete this waiveronce per year. If you have not already done so please complete prior to attending your first club ice session.

 

  1. FSCPC members will sit at the far end of the lobby.
  • To accommodate space for Skating Academy, PCIA asks that all club skaters sit at the far end of the lobby on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

No Live Jans Winter Welcome Event but Opportunity Drawing

Opportunity Drawing - we will have an opportunity drawing this fall.  Just like previous years any tickets sold that are credited to your club will go back to your club at 100%. The tickets will be $50 each and all sales will happen on-line.  This year’s prize will be a deluxe package to next year’s JANS Winter Welcome scheduled for October 23, 2021.  

Package will include:

  • VIP Gold table to 41st JANS Winter Welcome, 10 admissions for auction, dinner and dancing
  • One bottle of Veuve Cliquot Champagne delivered to the your table
  • Two night stay at Stein Eriksen Lodge during the event weekend, October 22 to 24, 2021

Virtual Silent Auction 

YSA will hold an online auction the weekend JANS Winter Welcome was scheduled.  We would like to have a small number of high value items. Obviously exotic vacations to far off locations are probably not going to sell however bikes, paddle boards and stay-cation type items will be very popular.  Please start brainstorming and acquiring what will sell well for your club.  We are asking for items with a value over $2500.  Again, just like previous years, the proceeds from packages that clubs bring into the auction will go back to the club at 100%.  The deadline for auction items is October 1st and we will be accepting 1-2 items per club/division.
