Teams in the 10U/12U/14U/18U age groups historically play in 3-4 away tournaments, including the State Tournament, during the season. Registration payments DO NOT cover the costs for these tournaments. One exception to this rule, the IWYHA will pay for the 16U/18U Midget league dues.
Families will pay between $35-$50 per tournament per player. Some, if not all, of these costs can be waived based on the amount of profit made from home tournaments. These payments will be invoiced to the team at the end of the season. The Team Rep will then calculate and collect payments from families.
Coaches and Team Reps will reserve hotel blocks for their perspective teams. It is recommended, not required, to stay at these reserved blocks. Families are 100% responsible for lodging costs during away tournament weekends.
Each team (6U and Up) will be given the opportunity to host a tournament at their perspective age level.
Families are encouraged to think of ways to fund raise during the tournament. Some examples include raffle baskets, shoot-out contests, and specialty dinners. Half of profits from these events will go towards paying for the away tournaments costs. The other half goes to the Association.
Families are required to work scoreboard, penalty boxes, zamboni, and concessions while they host their home tournament.
Each family (8U and Up) is required to buy/sell $300 worth of raffle tickets each season. Families are responsible for the cost of the tickets.
Jerseys & Socks:
Families are required to purchase game jerseys and socks for their registered player(s) in the age groups of 10U and above. Jerseys will be provided for players in the age groups of 8U and below, these jerseys need to be turned in at the end of the season.
Jerseys are double-sided (so you only need one) and are $80. They can be purchased here: https://teamlocker.squadlocker.com/#/lockers/ice-wolves-youth-hockey
Please contact the email@example.com to confirm open jersey numbers before purchase.
Each family (8U and Up) is required to complete a minimum of 20 hours of association work and 4 open skate shifts. These work hours can be used during Summer parades, fundraising events, rink buildup, rink break down and any event approved by the IWYHA board. DIBS will be used to sign up and calculate the completed work hours during events.
Families are required to provide a $400 check to association at the beginning of the season. This check acts as a deposit until completed hours are calculated by the association. Families will be invoiced $20 per hour for the number of incomplete hours. For example, if a family only completes 16 out of the required 20 hours, that family will be invoiced $80 (20-16=4 | 4 x $20 = $80). Once this invoice is paid, the $400 check will be destroyed. Checks will be automatically destroyed for families who have completed their required 20 hours.
It is the team's responsibility to provide workers for their team's assigned events such as home games and public/open skate. These "in-season" hours DO NOT count towards the required 20 hours.
