All winter youth hockey players must pay a fundraising fee in addition to registration fees. The purpose of this fee is to keep registration costs affordable for players, by allowing families to “work off” the fundraising amount. Families must submit a post-dated fundraising check when they register, which will be returned at the end of the season once their fundraising is fulfilled. All house players at the Mite level and above, have a $150 fee. Travel fees vary by age, which is listed on the winter travel page. There is no family discount for fundraising, and if families have a mix of travel and house players, each player is charged accordingly.
If a player withdraws from the program within the first two weeks (or two sessions), the family will receive an 80% fundraising credit. Withdrawals after two weeks will be credited a proportional rate.
Families may choose from any of the options below:
Families can either pay the entire amount at registration or add the amount onto their registration payment plan. In families with multiple players, the family can choose to buy-out of each player separately.
Selling Cookie Dough
Families can earn between 37 to 50% of their sales (depends on total amount sold) in fundraising credit. Forms will be handed out during the start-of-season parent meetings. Sales will happen each year in November. Contact Lisa Lee, fundraising coordinator for the specific dates.
Coffee sales will happen in January, through a local company. More information will be provided as the date approaches.
Scrip can be purchased and arranged through the online program. The Missoula Youth Hockey enrollment code is FE4C17E21496L. If you have any questions regarding the program or an existing order, please contact Brooke Krininger, Scrip Coordinator.
Sell an advertisement in the youth hockey tournament programs that are distributed at each tournament and you’ll earn half of the amount sold/purchased. Advertising deadline is October 31, 2017 for all seven tournament programs, but ads can be added after that date . See the advertising form for details. Glacier Ice Rink advertisements can also be counted at a rate of 25% of the cost of the ad. Contact Laura Henning for details.
