Membership and Registration Changes
To retain its affiliate standing in Pickleball BC (PBC) and Pickleball Canada (PCO) the Sunshine Coast Pickleball Association has adopted in 2021 the new membership registration system of Pickleball Canada called the PCNS. The new system is now operational and open for new and renewing members. Like with any change there are some pros and cons, but we feel on balance that the SCPA members are better served with this new system.
The main difference with the new system is that all SCPA members must individually join or renew online using the PCNS system. That means the SCPA will not be gathering memberships locally and batch uploading them to Pickleball BC and Pickleball Canada. We have also changed our membership cycle to the calendar year (Jan 1 - Dec 31) to synchronize with the membership cycle of Pickleball Canada.
With play opportunities so disrupted this year the SCPA has set its dues to $0 for 2021.
Pickleball Canada dues are $10.00 for 2021.
Pickleball BC dues are $2.50 for 2021.
Additionally there is a small service charge of $1.16 for the new system.
Credit cards can be used.
