Referrals must come from returning members. New members who wish to refer others, can request a referral certificate from Chuck.
Tuition can be refunded in full until the end of the second day of participation with the team (Contact SSRA Registrar).

When an athlete shows signs of concussion or is suspected to have a concussion, SSRA policy mandates that coaches sit them out, when in doubt. Athletes may return to training and competition only after a written clearance from a doctor trained in concussion identification and management (training within last 3 years) is provided to the SSRA Executive Director. All FIS Juniors, Juniors and Junior Development athletes must complete pre-season impact baseline cognitive tests every two years. Any athlete 11 and up, in any SSRA program, must take the baseline test every two years.
