BGSC Membership Notes for 2015/16

Current BGSC Membership Fees & Requirements:

$25         Introductory Membership

  • Never been a BGSC member & skating level no higher than Basic 5
  • USFS Basic Skills membership

$40         Pre-Primary Membership

  • Previous BGSC member & skating level up to & including Basic 5
  • USFS Basic Skills membership
  • $20 fundraising deposit (refunded if $50 in sales & volunteer hours met)
  • 5 hour volunteer requirement

$75         Associate Membership

  • Membership for coaches or inactive skaters
  • USFS Primary/Full membership
  • No fundraising requirements

$80         Secondary Membership

  • Membership for skaters that have primary membership with another USFS club
  • BGSC membership
  • No fundraising or volunteer requirements

$120      Collegiate Membership

  • Membership for skaters that are in college
  • (4) years USFS Primary membership & (4) years BGSC membership
  • No fundraising or volunteer requirements

$90         Primary Membership

  • Membership for active skaters
  • USFS Primary membership & BGSC membership
  • $100 fundraising deposit (refunded if $200 in sales & volunteer hours met)
  • 15 hours volunteer requirement

The fundraising and volunteer requirements are per family. When a family has skaters with different BGSC memberships, the requirements for the highest BGSC membership apply. For example, a family that has a skater with a Primary membership and a skater with a Pre-Primary membership, would need to meet the Primary requirements ($200 fundraising & 15 hour volunteer).

To provide USFS memberships, the club pays fees to USFS. These fees are staying the same for the 2015-16 season. These fees are going up next year $5-$10 depending on membership.

At the May 11, 2015 board meeting it was voted to adjust the fees based on the USFS increase and to keep the fundraising & volunteer requirements the same. Since the USFS increase doesn’t take effect until July 2016, no adjustments will be made to the BGSC membership fees.
