General Terms & Conditions
All amounts and transactions are in Canadian dollars. Full payment with registration only. Payment can be made with a Credit Card (VISA, Mastercard & AMEX) only, NTDSC does not accept cheques or eTransfers Full payment is expected to complete the registration.
No refunds will be issued at any point once registration has been completed.
Once a parent / guardian has registered a skater(s) in our program NTDSC will NOT refund any fees paid. Due to past confusions we at NTDSC want to be very clear, we will NOT refund fees before the season starts or at any point during the season, because a child refuses to skate, or a parent / guardian has changed their mind.
NTDSC will only consider refund requests submitted to a member of the Board in writing, along with a doctor's note explaining why the skater can not continue in the program. All refunds will be calculated as follows:
- Amount paid less the $45 Skate Canada Fee and $20 Administration Fee
- Less ice time up to the date the request for refund is received
In the event that NTDSC does refund Program Fees for non-medical reasons NTDSC reserves the right to charge back a Penalty of $20 for refunds processed.
