NEW for 2020-2021: Volunteer Requirements
EICFSC has added required volunteer credits in addition to ice monitor hours. SignUp Genius will be used to communicate volunteer opportunities throughout the year and these sign up links will be added to the Club's website.
Home Club Members will be required to fulfill TWO credits per contract year; adult members, associate members, and first time HCM are required to fulfill ONE credit per year. There will be a $250 penalty charged at the end of the contract year if volunteer requirements are not fulfilled. If an event is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, members who had signed up to volunteer will be given credit. Listed below are examples of volunteer opportunities with credit values.
Ice – Monitor Requirements
The Eagan Ice Crystal Figure Skating Club is run entirely by volunteers. Our club needs the support of
our skating members and their parents to operate smoothly and successfully.
Having all ice sessions monitored is extremely critical to the financial health of the Eagan Ice Crystal
Figure Skating Club to ensure that all skaters are checked in and all skaters buying on are recorded. The
ice monitor also saves valuable time for the coaches and skaters by playing program music. Ice Monitors
also are responsible for checking in any Guest Coaches.
All Home Club skaters contracted for ice sessions are required to either fulfill a minimum monitoring
requirement for each contract or pay a fee to buy out of the monitoring duties for that contract. The
monitoring requirements and fees will vary based on the length of the contract. Adult skaters (age 19 and
older) and collegiate skaters are exempt from any monitoring requirement. Note: If you have 2 skaters
you have double the ice monitoring requirements. The ice monitoring requirement is per skater, not per
If you are an Adult or Collegiate skater/family member, that has completed the ice monitor training
requirements, you are welcome to sign up to monitor sessions. By doing so, you are now subject to the
same monitoring rules as the other home club skaters. If you miss one monitoring session you will be
charged 50 percent of the full buy-out fee for that contract. If at the end of the contract, you have missed
more than one monitoring session, you will be charged the full buy out fee for that contract.
There is no carryover from one contract to the following contract; the stated monitoring requirement must
be met within each contract period.
It is essential that your entire monitoring requirement be fulfilled each contract. If you miss one
monitoring session you will be charged 50 percent of the full buy-out fee for that contract. If at the end
of the contract, you have missed more than one monitoring session, you will be charged the full buy out
fee for that contract.
You may also be charged the ice monitoring buy-out fee if you do not arrive early to your assigned
session to check-in the skaters and get a locker room or if you do not remain in the music playing box
during the entire freestyle sessions. Along with playing music, the monitor is responsible for making sure
that the EICFSC On-Ice Rules and Code of Conduct are followed by the skaters.
There may be times when it is necessary to monitor sessions on which your child is not skating in order to
fulfill your requirements.
If you are unable to attend your scheduled session, it is your responsibility to find a substitute. Please go
to www.eicfsc.com and check who skates on the session that you need to trade. After that, use your
EICFSC directory to contact these people. DO NOT e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Make sure that all trades/swaps are made in Sign-Up genius. This is where all the final billing and credit
numbers are taken from for each contract.
You will have the option to buy out of the monitoring requirement each contract. There is a buy out fee
each contract PER SKATER. The buy out fee should be paid with your initial contract payment.
Minors (Under age 18) may not ice monitor.
