FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

regarding memberships

Ranked vs Un-ranked

Depending on whether Provincially or Nationally Ranked, a Ranked competitor will have their points tracked by SCBC and count towards Provincial and National Rankings and titles. Nationally Ranked members are eligible for National Series competitions and National Team selection.
Un-Ranked competitors may compete up to the Provincial Championship level but will not have their points tracked and are not eligible for Provincial titles.




Youth D & Nat

Youth D competitors may not compete beyond the Provincial level and therefore may not purchase a National Membership.


Upgrades

You may upgrade your membership at any time throughout the competition season. When you upgrade from an Un-Ranked to a Ranked membership, results from competitions prior to the upgrade will not be counted towards Provincial or National rankings.

Upgrade Rates:
National $80.00: from Provincial
National $110.00: from Comp Un-ranked
Provincial $50.00: from Comp Un-ranked
