Club Membership Requirements
It is a requirement that participants in ice racing competition and training sessions (both on ice and off ice) be members of Australian Ice Racing Inc. (AIR), which is gained via membership of an Australian club. Note that AIR brokered insurance extends to members only.
The only exceptions to this requirement are:
- Skate School students. It is not a requirement for skaters enrolled in rink-administered Skate School programs or other Skate School events to join a club.
- Try-out skaters. These are skaters who are considering membership and may be invited to join in with a properly supervised club session on up to three separate occasions before becoming full skating members.
Clubs that invite try-outs are required to complete the “Come and Try” membership type on the membership registration system and record their name, address and contact details and session attended in order to fulfil the requirements of AIR. “Come and Try” membership with AIR is gained via online registration with a registered club at Australian Ice Racing Membership page and is free of charge.
Sydney Arrows is a coached club and its skaters have represented Australia at World cups, Junior & Senior World championships and Winter Olympics, coached over the years by long-serving Sydney Arrows coach, Maggie Holland.
Unfortunately, the Sydney Arrows home rink, Canterbury Olympic Ice Rink, is closed at this time due to structural faults found in the building. The problem will be being rectified or the building replaced.
Meanwhile, experienced skater and accredited coach, Scott Weekes, is conducting a regular off-ice exercise program in the grounds surrounding the rink.
