FAQs

When is ice show?
The first Saturday in March.

How many numbers will my child be in?

Every skater will be in at least one number. Skaters that take first place at the William E. Gilbert Sr Memorial Club Competition get an extra number in the ice show. Additional numbers are earned based on meeting Ice Show qualifications – such as skaters who have tested at least two dances and met the requirements. This is all outlined in the Ice Show newsletter and Ice Show Policies you will receive in January.

How much does it cost to participate in Ice Show?

Price is available on the current Ice Show registration form. Typically, there is a $120 participation fee that includes one costume, tights, $20 worth of ice show tickets, family cast party, and the Ice Show registration fee to pay for Ice Show expenses. There are many other optional items to purchase including T-shirts, DVD, posters, program, ads, pictures, etc.


A Picture Day will be held in January where a professional photographer will take group and individual photos of our skaters. The group photos are used in the ice show program. Please remember to get in line at Picture Day so you do not miss out on all the fun - where you'll sign up to volunteer, order t-shirts, DVDs, program ads, etc.

How can I help?

  • Parents are required to sign up for at least one volunteer spot per skater. Signups will be available at Ice Show picture day. Many, many volunteers are needed to make our ice show a success.
  • Help with the Poker Fundraiser. Poker pays for a large part of our Ice Show. Watch for our next sign up for our Poker fundraiser. It not only helps our show but your skater too! See Scott Shepherd for more information on Poker.
  • Sell ice show program ads! Earn money for your skating account and help raise funds for the ice show.
  • Attend board meetings leading up to Ice Show. We are always looking for parents to help with small and big projects.

Picture Forms - Picture forms should be filled out prior to picture day and are available in this newsletter on Page 9.

 

Picture Day is also the time to take care of all necessary Ice Show requirements:

 

·         Volunteer Sign Up – As a reminder, all skaters are required to have a parent or another adult assist with the ice the show by volunteering a minimum of one entire show.  It takes many, many volunteers to put together a successful show. 

 

Sign-up sheets will be available for you to choose the volunteer hours you would like to commit to for the Ice Show. Security, Lighting, Set-up, Take Down, Program or Flower Sales, Chaperones, Dressing Rooms, and Ticket Sales all need volunteers. It takes all of us to put on such a great show! Please start thinking about which shows you are available to help at prior to picture day.

 

We also are following the US Figure Skating SafeSport Program requirements this year.  Volunteers signing up to chaperone, assist with dressing rooms or quick change, and work security posts will be required to complete the SafeSport Program prior to volunteering.  Instructions on completing SafeSport through USFSA.org will be provided.  You will also be reimbursed the $20 background check fee for your commitment to keeping our skaters safe.  Thank you in advance! 

 

Here is a brief description of each volunteer task. 

o    Set Up – You will be helping set up, usually covering boards, setting up lights, on-ice tables, stage, etc. the day before the show, time to be determined but starting at approximately 9 or 10 am. This job could be from 3 to 6 hours depending on how many people sign up for the job.

o    Take Down – You will be helping take down the lights, stage, clear the boards, the on-ice tables.  Your duty begins at the end of show and lasts usually 1-2 hours.

o    Security Post – You will be assigned a security post and will be responsible for only allowing people with the correct badge entrance or exit. Starts one and a half hours before the show until one hour after show. SafeSport certification required. 

o    Tickets – You may be selling tickets in the box office or collecting tickets at the doors. Starts one hour and a half hours before the show until show starts.

o    Selling flowers, programs, or 50/50 tickets – You may be selling flowers, programs, or 50/50 tickets at a table in the hall or selling programs and 50/50 tickets in the audience. Starts one and a half hours before the show until after intermission.

o    Chaperone (skaters in one number) – You will be assigned to a group and will be responsible for keeping the group together, keeping them seated and quiet, getting them backstage for their number, and returning them to their seats after their number. Starts one and a half hours before the show until last skater in your group has been picked up.  SafeSport certification required. 

o    Dressing Rooms – You will be assigned to a dressing room and will be responsible for keeping food and drink out of the dressing room, assisting skaters with any costume emergency, loss of costume, skate guards (you name it). Starts one hour before show until last skater in the dressing room is gone. SafeSport certification required. 

Please remember volunteers cannot leave their posts unless there is another volunteer present to fill in.

o    Tickets can be picked up at the rink from Kristi Tanton or by contacting her at [email protected] | 810-357-2917 to make other arrangements.

o    We’d like to try something new this year to encourage more ticket sales and will be offering a Family Four Pack of tickets at an even bigger discount.  The Family Four Pack will include 2 Adult tickets and 2 Senior/Student tickets.  The regular price would be $40 but we’ll be selling this at a discounted rate of $30 for advance sales only.  We’ll also have it available for sale on our website for a limited time – phfsc.com – and the tickets will be available for pickup at the North McMorran ticket booth.  This way we can promote online ticket sales as well to the general public and promote our website. 

 

·         On Ice Tables – Enjoy table seating at ice level!  Tables may be purchased for both shows (1 pm and 7 pm) for $325.00 or a table for one show $165. The tables have 6 seats for one performance and extra seats are $25. If you wish you may purchase individual seats without buying a table and the price for these seat tickets will be $35. The company or family name will appear in our program (if purchased by February 4th).  One Ice Tables each include 3 programs as well as coffee and beverage service, a dessert platter, and a cheese and cracker platter.  Skaters with families who purchase tables are also invited to join the tables after the show to see their families and meet the guest skaters.  Look for the sign-up poster to reserve your table. Tables will be sold on a first come first serve basis. Questions? Contact Casey Deering at [email protected] | 586-405-1550.

·         If your skater is unable to attend, please contact Kim Kirkendall at 810-334-1988.

·         PLEASE... Arrive 45 minutes BEFORE your scheduled time

·         Pictures will not be held for late arrivals.

·         Due to the number of skaters that will be there, your time, patience and understanding will be appreciated.

·         See Page 9 for the Picture Day photo order forms.  Complete one form per skater per number.  Please complete in advance to save time on Picture Day.

·         Please, no glitter in hair!  Save it for the hair.  It doesn’t show up in photos and leaves a mess to clean up.    

 

Attendance Procedure

·         Absences – All practices are important. Any skater with more than 2 absences from the same number will be removed from the number unless determined by the Directors.

·         Any skater that steps on the ice after the practice starts will have the following apply:  Skaters that miss more than 10 minutes of a 30 minute practice or 15 minutes of a 45 minute practice will be counted as absent for that practice. 

·         These policies have been established to provide equal opportunity to each skater within the Port Huron Figure Skating Club. Every skater has an equal chance to participate in Ice Show numbers according to his/her testing levels in the area of freestyle, moves and dance. Every Skater must follow the attendance policy stipulated to be fair to all skaters involved in each number to generate a polished number for the Ice Show.

·         Learn to SkateLearn to Skate skaters must attend at least half of their scheduled practices and dress rehearsal in order to perform in the show. This is only for the Learn to Skate group numbers.

·         Conflicting Dates – If there are conflicting dates with ice show practices that are school functions, which will affect the skater’s grade, a schedule of conflicting dates MUST be submitted to the Ice Show Directors 1 week PRIOR to the date to begin practices or picture day (whichever one comes first).

·         Illnesses – In the event the skater is ill and cannot make practice the skater/parent must contact the coach of the number no later than 2 hours before the ice show practice. In the event the skater misses 2 practices due to illness, the skater will be removed from that ice show number (unless waived which is determined by the Directors as well as the coach of the number for extenuating circumstances only).  See Page 1 for contact information for coaches.

Security Procedure

(PLEASE REFER TO THE MAP IN YOUR NEWSLETTER)

In order to make this a safe and fun experience for all of our skaters, we are again this year enforcing a secured area around the McMorran Main Arena ice surface during the Dress Rehearsal, and Saturday performances of 1 pm and 7 pm.

Will Call is the North Ticket Booth.

 

Skater Drop Off and Check In:

Skater Pick Up and Release:

·         Skaters will be picked up at the Northwest Side INTERIOR entrance to McMorran’s Main Arena (please refer to the map below).

·         Anyone picking up a skater must have a valid picture ID available if requested.

 

Important to Remember

·         Skaters need to arrive at least 1 hour prior to each show in costume (with skates on if in first half) no matter which half of the show they skate in.  Chaperones will help skaters during intermission put on skates for the second half.

·         Skaters may be picked up after the finale of the first half or the finale of the second half.  You may do so at the Northwest Side INTERIOR entrance.  Please allow skater time to remove skates and gather items.

·         Enjoy the Show!

 

*Parents:  because of limited space backstage…..you MUST bring your child dressed and ready to the show except for skates.  You can tie their skates if in 1st half in the carpeted area provided and then your child will be escorted to their group section for the show, which will have chaperones there for each group. 

* Parents that are NOT signed up to volunteer during the show… will have to enter the show through the Main Entrance ONLY and will require a purchased ticket. 

*Skaters will not be released until INTERMISSION (for 1st Half skaters only) once a skater is checked out by a parent during the show, they will not be able to enter again (until the next show).  The volunteers at the check-out door will not know what half your child is in so, if they are checked out before their number they will miss their skate in the show.  2nd Half skaters will be released to a parent at the check-out door at the end of the show.  Allow time for skaters to remove skates and gather items before expecting them to be checked out.

*Please arrive by noon to drop off your child for the 1 p.m. show and 6 p.m. for the 7 p.m. show!

*All Volunteers need to report to their designated post by their given time.
