Clarification regarding Test and Competition reimbursements

Dear SCORE Club Members,
There have been several requests for clarification with respect to the previous message posted and e-mail sent on January 12, 2014.  The note below is intended to clarify the test and competition reimbursements.

Effective July 1, 2013, SCORE will reimburse for one (1) test, up to a cost of $75, per membership year (July 1 – June 30), provided that the following reimbursement criteria are met:

  • Reimbursed test must be hosted by the Skating Club of Oregon.
  • Skater must be a reimbursement-eligible member at time of test.
  • Skater must pass test for which reimbursement is being requested and provide proof thereof.
  • Skater must be a SCORE member until the end of the membership year in which the reimbursed test occurred.
  • Skater’s family must meet the minimum volunteers hours (in the membership year), required for reimbursement
  • Skater must be able to provide proof of cost and payment of test.
  • Reimbursement request form and all supporting documentation, MUST be submitted during the month of JULY, immediately following the applicable testing/membership year.  Reimbursement requests will ONLY be accepted and considered during this timeframe.

Effective July 1, 2013 SCORE will NO LONGER reimburse for competitions.

These changes to the test and competition reimbursement benefit are part of the Club’s efforts to control expenses, in order to ensure its long-term financial stability.  Should this change cause some members to no longer want to be part of SCORE, the Club will allow you a refund of your full membership fee, for a period of 30 days, following the publishing of this change notice.

Please contact SCORE President,  Anda Vidal at president@skatingcluboforegon.org , if you have any questions, concerns or requests.
