Important Membership Information

All Hockey Academy skaters are considered full members of the Sioux Falls Figure Skating Club, and will be required to have a SFFSC  Learn to Skate USA Membership. Memberships for the 2021-22 calendar year will begin on July 1, 2021 and expire on June 30, 2022.

As you begin registration, you will be prompted to answer "yes" when asked if you need an annual membership. You will only have to do this once for the 2021-22 Season. You will answer "no" once you have completed this step for the 2021-22 Season.

Because our software system is programmed to connect annual memberships and class registrations together, failure to pay for your membership will result in your child being left off all rostering.  Please make sure you pay for your membership to avoid this from happening.  We will not be able to add your child unless both membership and class registration is fully completed and purchased.

Refunds: All registration and processing fees are non-refundable except in cases where Sioux Falls Figure Skating Club cancels classes. Exceptions in extreme circumstances may be granted by the Board of Directors on a case-by-case basis.
