3/19/20 - COVID-19 UPDATE
Skate Like a Girl will not be running any programming until April 10th or later. This current suspension of activities does not affect our plans for Summer 2020, including hiring and registration. As things develop, we will make future announcements regarding our organization’s activities.
We believe that we are a Skate Like A Girl community, even when we are not able to meet in person. In the coming days, we will be working on creating ways for our community to connect at a distance. Please stay tuned as we’ll be posting ways to stay engaged and connected starting next week!
We know that many of you who are signed up for our fee-based programming will have questions about refunds, and we’ll include information about all that below.
We wish our community the best through this disorienting time. We appreciate your understanding!
Your friends at Skate Like a Girl
𝐈𝐍𝐅𝐎𝐑𝐌𝐀𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍 𝐀𝐁𝐎𝐔𝐓 𝐑𝐄𝐅𝐔𝐍𝐃𝐒:
Any participants that are currently registered for an upcoming fee-based program are entitled to a full program credit or cash refund (minus any related processing fees). Please reach out to your local Skate Like a Girl chapter to claim your refund or program credit.
The reason that we are not distributing refunds automatically is that we know from working closely with our communities, it is best to do this on an individual basis. Some people will prefer to receive Skate Like a Girl program credit and/or the numbers we have on file won’t work when we try to refund due to expirations, etc. We are committed to fully refunding all money as soon as possible and will be doing this in as timely a fashion as possible. If you need your refund right away please let us know, otherwise, we appreciate your patience as we work through these changes!
Contact emails for each local chapter for refunds and more specific information:
