EFFECTIVE AS OF OCTOBER 17, 2011, CFSA Member Clubs may only register athletes for any CFSA sanctioned program in 2012-2013 who are 5 years of age and older. Athletes must turn 5 years of age before November 15, 2012. Athletes who are 4 years of age after November 15, 2012 will not be eligible for membership in the CFSA.
The Canadian Freestyle Ski Association introduced a new membership fee structure beginning on June 1, 2011. The new structure is aligned with the CFSA’s Long Term Athlete Development Model and has simplified the licensing process. New athlete license levels have been introduced based on the CFSA’s flagship program CAN Freestyle. The following presentation outlines the changes made to the CFSA membership system and the new CFSA fees. Your Provincial Sport Organization may charge extra for some license levels; the PSO portion of the fees is not included in this presentation.
All Fees will have a 2.3% processing fee added at the time of registration.For further information, please contact Jonathan Dagostino at email@example.com or at 604-714-2233.
Why have we made these changes?
The goals of these changes are to:
Align the CFSA membership categories and events with LTAD principles and the CFSA LTAD Model through CAN Freestyle.
Align membership categories with level of events.
Create a uniform membership price across the country for athletes at the Fundamentals, Learn-to-Train and Train-to-Train stages in order to better promote our CAN Free Programs (applies to all PSOs except Quebec).
Reduce the number of membership categories.
Reduce the frequency of upgrades.
