ICE FROLICS SHOW RULES
To skate in the ice show one must be a member in good standing of the Falmouth Figure Skating Club.
Each skater will be placed in two group numbers according to age and test level. Skater/parent may choose to skate in one number only, or not at all, but soloists and features must skate in both group numbers.
All test requirements for solos, features and group numbers will be as of December 1st. No skater will be changed from his or her group numbers, no matter what test has been passed after this date.
REHEARSALS: Rehearsal schedule will be posted on the Figure Skating Club bulletin board. YOU are responsible for checking rehearsal time.
ATTENDANCE: Prompt attendance at all rehearsals is mandatory and rules regarding absences will be enforced. Tardiness of 10 minutes on a 30-minute rehearsal or 5 minutes on a 15-minute rehearsal will be considered an absence. Only 3 absences in each group number will be excused. An absence is just that, no matter what the reason, there are no excuses that are acceptable. If skater is not well enough to skate, but comes and watches rehearsal from the side of the hockey benches, they will be counted as being there. Please tell the Attendance Mother that you are there, but not skating, so she can check you off. The 4th absence will make a skater ineligible to participate in show. ATTENDANCE WILL BE TAKEN AT ALL REHEARSALS. Excuses made to Instructors are not acceptable. There are excused rehearsals for February vacation only, only one of the Sunday rehearsals will be excused, if you miss both Sunday rehearsals during the vacation, it will count as one absence, and the Tuesday rehearsal is excused if you miss that. If you come to the February vacation rehearsals it will count as a makeup for an absence.
COSTUMES: The cost of the costumes is the responsibility of the skater/parent. No refund will be given after costumes have been ordered. The prices range between approximately $50 to $70 each. A deposit of $50.00 is required and the balance is due when costumes arrive. No costumes will be ordered if membership dues are outstanding. Before costumes are completely given out, ice and costume bills must be paid in full.
No flowers are to be thrown on the ice during the show. They may be given to the skater at the finale.
