HISC music is played by digital format and the club provides a music playback system called Rinkmusic.
All Members and Coaches wishing to run music will need to purchase a music tag.
The cost to purchase your tag will be a 1 off payment of $20 – payable to HISC. This is discounted for your first card by HISC.
Tags can be replaced at a cost if lost, payable to HISC at $25 each.
When this is paid and verified, you will be notified to pick up your tag. You will be able to pick it up from an Executive Committee Member – Siobhan Purins, Sam Page, Nicholas McCarthy or Lynne Kentish during a figure session.
Once you have your tag, you will be able to register your tag through Rinkmusic Inc Please see the following instructions:-
There is an annual registration fee (in $US) and is NOT paid to the club. There are a variety of memberships, a Silver membership allows you to have up to 5 pieces of music for $10 US. This is recommended for skaters.
Coaches will also be required to purchase a Coaches Tag on which they can load all of their skaters music to be used only in that skaters lesson.
We ask that all figure skaters and/or coaches upload their music accordingly to be able to play during a figure session.
All music should be in MP3 format at a preferable bitrate of 192. Music files can be converted either through iTunes or Windows Media Player or other music editing software.
