The Edina Hockey Association (EHA) has an extremely strong tradition with over 1,200 players and about 80 teams. EHA hopes each family understands there is significant time and effort surrounding the registration fee amount for each level. Beyond the registration fee funds, EHA relies heavily on sponsors, donations, advertising and fundraising to keep registration fees at the most reasonable level as possible. EHA’s financial goal is to breakeven each year.
Registration fees are utilized to pay for operating expenses:
Every EHA player (with the exception of Termites) is assessed a $200 EHA Player Fee. You can recoup your EHA Player Fee by opting in to a pizza fundraiser. You are not required to opt in to the fundraiser and it is only made available for families to recoup some of their fees by participating.
The EHA player fee is used to pay for:
Note: Registration fees do not include any potential team assessments for purchasing additional practice ice time, dryland, coach equipment, etc.
EHA primarily uses historical operating results to gauge the registration fee as well as a host of estimated figures or data such as; number of registered players, ice time hourly rates, District 6 fees and number of tournaments and related gate fees.
EHA received many compliments for allowing families to pay for registration fees using their credit card on an installment basis. This option is available for the 2018-2019 season.
Over the past few years, EHA has experienced a higher frequency of families asking questions about many aspects our great association. A sample of these questions have been around tryouts, number of tournaments, number of teams for each level, allocation of EHA purchased ice time and financial results.
As a result and to promote a consistent message, EHA is planning on holding our third annual Edina Hockey Town Hall meeting. Please stay tuned for more information
