T-shirts: We will be sending you your free t-shirt this year and we are giving you three choices Men’s basic Tee, a Men’s Tank or a Woman’s tank. The shirts will be navy blue with a similar design to our last one (with both the quad and inline skate). The recent logo has been our most popular t-shirt to date and so we are updating it a bit but maintaining the aspects you enjoy.
Zip Hoodie: New this year is the optional Zip Hoodie, in black. It will sport our logo on the back as well as Certified SkateIA Instructor on the front, left hand side (small). We are also going to invest in embroidering your first name on the front, so it’s a bit more epensive, but it will be good quality and personalized. Order by January 1st and order via your Renewal Registration.

All members of Skate IA who are actively teaching are required to have some form of insurance, through your company or place of business or through a valid insurance policy. And, we offer very affordable insurance for your classes. You may purchase individual insurance anytime during the year for $115 for adults and individuals as long as your membership is up to date. You may purchase half year insurance (June 1-Dec 31) after May 31, 2017 for $105. Insurance now includes Abuse/Molestation coverage up to $100,000 aggregate/per occurrence–numerous locations were requiring it so we’ve added it to offer more benefits to you. Also, we’ve moved our Aggregate up to $3,000,000 to better serve YOU.
Skate School Insurance includes additional insurance benefits and is for our commercial instructors who teach in excess of 200 student/classes per year (100 students twice = 200). You also have benefits for floor damage, property damage and more.
If your membership has lapsed for less than 3 years, you may renew at the above prices. If you have any questions, reach out to us.
Safe Sport requirements: This year we have seen that it is important to ensure you are trained on appropriate codes of conduct and that you are clear with the finite details of working with vulnerable populations (like youth) as well as working with other staff and students. There are questions of touching, when, how and when not to touch—among many other issues to consider. The USA Gymnastics scandal meant that insurance went up for sports like ours, and that we MUST take steps to ensure that you have the TOOLS you need to be safely working with others. As an instructor, we request that at some point during 2020 you take the safesport.org training and test. It will cost you $20 and once you complete it you will receive an electronic certificate of completion. Send that to us and we will note you are Safe Sport Certified on your web page. This is a pro-active step that we believe WILL make a difference. Thank you in advance for updating your training.
ICP: We are not offering ICP membership through Skate IA this year.
