Skate Canada New Brunswick Program Fee

In the 2019-2020 skating season, SCNB replaced its lottery with the Skate Canada New Brunswick Program Fee. These monies are used to subsidize skating programs such as CompetitiveSkate, STARSkate, SynchroSkate, Adult Skate, Officials and Coaches.
 
We strongly encourage the following: 
  • Keep a list of your Members that properly identifies their role (eg. skater, official, volunteer, etc).
  • Include this fee with your registration fee
  • Identify this fee as the SCNB Skating Program Fee

Effective July 1st 2020, the Skate Canada New Brunswick (SCNB) Skater program fee will increase to $15 per skater for Clubs not attending SCNB Day. Clubs that attend SCNB Day will have a reduced fee of $10 per skater. In order to qualify for the reduced program fee ($10), the following 2 conditions must be met:

  1. A member of the Club Board of the Directors must attend SCNB Day and remain the entire day.
  2. A Coach from the club must attend SCNB Day and remain the entire day.
    1. It should be noted that a coach that works in multiple clubs may represent each of those clubs. 
If either the Board Member or the coach fails to stay all day, the skater program fee for the year will remain at $15.00

Billing process
Skate Canada New Brunswick (SCNB) will bill the club for Skaters using the following information and timeline.

Fall Billing
  • Will be made during the first week of December of each year
  • SCNB will use Skate Canada Registrant numbers as of November 30 and will deduct non-skaters (Club Level Board members and Officials).
  • A registrant, having more than one role within the club, will be charged the Skater Program Fee if they register in a skating program (eg Adult Skating, SynchroSkate, CanSkate).
  • In case of discrepancies, Clubs may provide the Director of Finance a list of corrections listing name and role(s) of registrant(s).
  • SCNB will deliver the invoices to the Clubs via e-mail. Payment will be due on receipt

Winter Billing
  • Will be issued in the early part of February, using the January 31 Stats as provided by Skate Canada.
  • The billing calculation will be the current registration number for that club less the gross number of registrants from the Fall billing.
  • SCNB will deliver the invoices to the Clubs via e-mail. Payment will be due on receipt

Spring Billing
  • The final billing will be issued in the early part of May using the April 30 Stats as provided by Skate Canada.
  • The billing calculation will be the current registration number for that club less the gross number of registrants from the Winter Billing.
  • SCNB will deliver the invoices to the Clubs via e-mail. Payment will be due on receipt

SCNB reserves the right to take actions against a club that fails to remit the skater program fee in a timely manner. Such action may include placing the club in non-compliance and making their skaters ineligible to participate in competitions and or events until payment is received.
 

Please do not hesitate to contact the Director of Finance should you have questions.
