   We cannot stress enough the importance of having every participant and
   supporter registered with our office, both to protect your club and your
 gymnasts in an insurance situation and to maintain the level of Sask Lotteries,
        MAP, and other funding provided to the sport of gymnastics.

                                   OUTSIDE USER GROUP
If your club is offering gymnastics programs for outside user groups, (for example, birthday
parties, daycares, other sport groups) you must submit a $70 outside user group fee in order
to be covered for liability insurance for these programs. This insurance will only cover
individuals on a one-time user basis. Groups can also be registered as Associate Members
($35/group). *Associate member forms available on the GymSask website.

                  * Please note that this insurance ONLY covers gymnastics activities.

In order for your liability insurance to be in effect please ensure that you keep the contact
information of the individuals attending these programs for a 12 month period as
Gymnastics Saskatchewan may request this information. On a monthly basis please send the
number of participants using this program. Please use the outside user group form available
on the Gymnastics Saskatchewan website or send equivalent information. All statistical
analysis (i.e. MAP, AGM votes, size of club tracking) will EXCLUDE birthday party/daycare,
one time user group attendees.

                                     DROP-IN MEMBERSHIP
 Participants for a drop-in session cannot be insured as an outside user as this insurance will
only cover individuals on a one-time user basis. Participants attending, drop-in or pay as you
  go session cannot be considered as a one-time user. If you are offering this service please
  contact us to discuss the payment of these individuals as well as providing your club with
                                        drop-in cards.

                                         IMPORTANT NOTICE
        Gymnastics Saskatchewan Member Registration Process Information

Gymnastics Saskatchewan is pleased to announce a partnership with ISS - Integrated Sport Systems Inc.
for the development and implementation of online registration systems for our member clubs.

In September 2008, a new registration system was implemented which enables and requires member
clubs to register their members with us electronically. These changes to our existing system will
streamline the registration process as well as meet Gymnastics Canada’s and Sask Sport’s reporting
requirements for membership.

This new online program will allow clubs two options – to either purchase Clublink 5.4 software or use
E-Sport via the Gym Sask website. All competitive clubs currently registered with Gym Sask will be
reimbursed for the cost of their Clublink program purchase.

Clublink is the desktop software designed to manage the day to day operations of small and large clubs.
Clublink includes several useful tools, including advanced reporting tools for class schedules and lists,
ability to generate receipts, tax receipts, etc.

E-Sport is an on-line registration database that is located on the Gymnastics Saskatchewan website.
Clubs that do not have the Clublink program will be able to enter their club registration on E-Sport.
Reports will also be able to be created from this database for the clubs.

Catherine Tomczak is your main contact with Gymnastics Saskatchewan regarding Club Link, however, if
Catherine is not available please call or email Michael Morris, whom is our contact with Club Link if
you encounter any problems.
