HOW YOUR SUPPORT CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE…

Do you know the costs associated with running a hockey program? With playing the sport? Here is a quick breakdown so you can see a few ways for how your support will make a difference…

Ice Rental
During a typical season, the average monthly cost for renting ice time for practices and games is approximately $10,500. That figure provides our players 3 practices per week and games on the weekends. Your support will help offset the cost of ice rental so we can direct funds toward program development so that more youth can have the opportunity to experience ice hockey.

Tournaments
Participation in tournaments is a fundamental part of player development. We encourage our players to participate in 2-3 tournaments per season. The typical entry fee for a team to attend a tournament is between $1,000-$1,500. In addition to the team’s entry fee, families pay their own travel and lodging which can easily add up to $400-$600 per event (gas, hotel and meals). Your support will help a player and his or her family attend a tournament and/or a team to travel to new tournaments, enriching player development.

Equipment
Hockey equipment takes a beating each season and is often in need of repair or placement. To give you an idea, each season we typically need:

  • 3 different sizes of nets for the goals at a cost of $400-$600 per pair
  • 1000 pucks at a cost of $1,500
  • Practice equipment and gear for drills (cones, special pucks, scrimmage vests, etc.) at a cost of $250 per age group
  • Goalie gear (helmet, pads, gloves, and stick for younger age groups) at a cost of $750 per set

Your support will help replace and repair the equipment needed during the season, enabling us to continue providing a quality program for all participants.

Player Gear
$250 will purchase one set of loaner gear and a pair of skates, which we like to provide first-time players at no cost so they can make sure the sport is right for them. However, once a player wants to continue the sport, he or she will need their own set of gear, which on average costs about $600, and more if he or she is a goalie.  Your support will help us provide more sets of loaner gear and financial assistance for families to purchase player gear, so that more youth can participate.


“I love playing goalie. When I stop the puck from going in the net, I feel really proud because I am able to help my team. We work together and have a lot of fun.” —Player, age 11

“Practices are fun… especially when we get to play against each other. We take turns playing forward and defense and it helps us to be better players.” — Player, age 8

“Hockey isn't just for boys. I like that I am a girl who plays hockey. Playing with the boys helps build my confidence and I love it when I am able to beat them to the puck.” — Player, age 10

“Competing in tournaments against teams we don’t normally play really helps me grow as a player. I can see where I need to improve and my coaches are there to help.” — Player, age 14
