Cost & Additional Info Coming Soon.

Team Fees

Program fees cover practice ice and league home game ice times. These fees do not include any potential Team Fees.

Team fees are determined by the individual teams AFTER teams are formed for the season. An example of what team fees may cover include but are not limited to:

  • Tournament fees
  • Party fees
  • Travel fees
  • or any other necessary fees the individual teams and coaches deem necessary to provide the best experience for the team.

Team fees are not optional so in fairness to all individuals on the team, we require any additional team fees to be equally split among the families of those teams, unless other mutual agreements have been put into place by the teams.

USA Hockey Number Fee

You will be required to create a 2022-23 USA Hockey number as part of the Tryout registration (if you have not already done so). The cost are not part of the fees listed above. You will do that on the USA Hockey website.

Note: After you pay for your 2022-23 USA Hockey number, it may take several minutes for that new number ID to propagate throughout the USA Hockey system (which CrossBar uses as a validation reference). This is not in our control. If you face an error message on our Tryout registration stating the number is invalid or not recognized, just wait a few more minutes. Eventually it will process.
