The Oakland Ice Subscription allows the participant to make either a single payment or four equal installments to cover the cost of skating at the Oakland session for a 1 year period.
The Oakland Ice subscription also includes an NCSA memembership (value $45) for the year of the subscription.
This program was initiated to help both the skaters and the Oakland speedskating group handle the uncertainty of attendance at the speed sessions.
We skate year round at Oakland Ice. The cost of ice is a fixed. During the winter months, attendance will cover the cost of ice. During the summer months, for many of the sessions, the attendance does not cover the cost of the ice. The subscription model allows for us to our ice time.
Without the subscription program, the session price would be based on the cost of ice divided by the number of attendees. The current ice cost per session is about $500.
Please note: This subscription only includes the Oakland Ice speed sessions. Races and San Jose sessions are not included with this subscription.
