Welcome to the Transition Committee Frequently Asked Questions Page!
This is where you will find answers to frequently asked questions about the transition process or the new Ontario section.
To ask a question, please send an email to: FAQ@skateontario.org.
We’re concerned that within a single Skate Ontario, the needs of less urban communities and areas may be overlooked.
Will anything be replacing the WO lottery books? Can a former “region” run it’s own fundraising lottery?
How will the existing Sections/Regions distribute their current funds?
How will clubs benefit from the “full spectrum of provincial funding” in the new Skate Ontario?
Our club will be ordering some new club jackets over the next few weeks. In the past, we were given permission to use our section’s logo. Should we now be transitioning to the Skate Ontario logo? Will there be a new Skate Ontario logo or is the current one going to be used?
How will our clubs be supported by the new Skate Ontario?
When the new year starts and a coach or a club has a technical question, e.g. rules, amendments, skating related ONLY, who will be available to answer those questions?
What is the importance of Coaching Association of Canada and your personal “locker”?
When will we hear about local NCCP Course offerings for this year?
Competition and Program FAQS:
Who is going to take care of program delivery in the new Skate Ontario?
How will skating programs and services change with the new Skate Ontario?
How will competitions be impacted for 2017/18 season?
Which competitions will be used for skaters to qualify for the Sectional Championships?
If a skater is skating summer school out of the province, will they be able to qualify for Sectionals out of the province, e.g. Wild Rose or BC Skate? What about out of country?
Which competitions will skaters qualify for STARSkate Championships? How will STARSkate Championships work (ie. minimum score for entry)?
Competition Hosting FAQS:
How do clubs/multiple clubs put in bids for competitions and how does the selection process work? Will clubs then have access to competition revenue?
If you host a Synchro or Invitational Competition, when will the new hosting documents be put together so the Hosts Club(s) will know what is required. Would this be a profitable fundraiser for the clubs?
Board of Directors FAQS:
What happens to board members whose term is up in April 2017?
