Registration Fees and Infomation

Registration Fee & Payment Plan Information

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:

  • Tryouts
  • Game & Practice ice time purchased by EHA
  • Tournament gate fees
  • Other required operating expenses
  • Rostering Fee: (2018-2019). The hourly cost of ice has gone up at Braemar Arena, the EHA is not raising registration fees. A rostering fee will be charged for the following teams; Bantam AA, Bantam A, Bantam B1, Peewee AA, Peewee A, U15A, U12A. Each of these teams have longer D6 games and hence will be charged for that ice. The rostering fee will be assessed at the beginning of the season. The rostering fee will not exceed $150/player.

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:

  • District 6 fees (referees, other fees)
  • EHA equipment
  • EHA administrative staff

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. 

  • Families have the option to pay the entire amount immediately
  • Installment payment plan
    • Initial payment due at registration
    • First half of remaining balance due November 15, 2018
    • Second half of remaining balance due January 15, 2019
    • Please note for Jr Gold U16 and Girls U19
      • Second and third installment payments will be on December 15, 2018 and February 15, 2019

 

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
