In an effort to
assist our more advanced Nantucket Skating Club members in obtaining additional ice time while refining their technique and
skills through advanced lessons and classes not currently available on island, the Nantucket Skating Club BOD has entered
into an agreement with the Hyline to pass on our significantly discounted travel rates to these skaters’ families.
The Hyline is a very important partner of NSC and we rely on them and our positive relationship to travel to and from Nantucket
at reasonable rates. Because of this, our board has refined a set of guidelines, which has been approved by the Hyline,
that will make this opportunity accessible to our families while also assisting the Hyline with oversight of these accounts.
for setting up Sub-Accounts of NSC for Travel and Reservations
· Skater’s Parents who wish to set up a sub-account of NSC need to send an emailed letter to both Dee Forand and
Nantucket Skating Club (firstname.lastname@example.org) stating the advanced figure skating classes or private lessons they will be traveling off island for, what rinks they plan
on frequenting and their coaches’ name(s).
They will need to provide in that email a letter
of reference from their off island coach, also stating what classes/lessons they will be taking
· The President of Nantucket Skating Club will review all submissions and send approval/disapproval to Dee
Forand. Dee will not set up any accounts without NSC approval. If a portion of a submission is problematic, it
may be brought in front of the board for discussion or reviewed in person with the skaters parents. (process may take up to
· Once a sub-account is approved, the skater’s parents will be alerted by email
by NSC President and at that time they will be able to make reservations.
Protocol for making Reservations on a Sub-Account
· All reservations must be sent to Dee Forand no later than 12:00 noon on Friday prior to the week
you will be traveling.
Only Nantucket Skating Club skaters with their
own family sub-accounts are able to take advantage of the reduced rate
There may only be 1 chaperone per reservation
· For Reservation, an email must be sent to Dee Forand and Nantucket Skating Club giving:
skater(s) and chaperone names, boat dates and times of reservations needed
o The coach the skater will
be practicing with and the rink they will be skating at
The NSC president will review and email Dee if
this is approved. If it is not approved, the NSC President will email back to Dee and the parent explaining why.
This removes the HyLine from having to police our skaters and their use of this privilege.
