Registration:
Registration will be available online starting 08/15/16. A walk-in registration will be held on Wednesday, September 7 from 5:30-8:00pm. During that time members will be able to register online at the rink, (help will be available from volunteers), equipment can be fitted, and any questions or concerns can be addressed.  Online registration will remain open to U6 skaters through Nov. 15th. Any exceptions will need to be handled through the coach and the registrar.  One half of total registration costs are due by the walk in registration date of September 7, 2016.  Families may pay the remaining balance at any time, but no later than January 15, 2017.  

The Season:
The U6 season will start either the week of October 31st or the week of November 7th. The exact date will be know at registration. There will be a one week break at Thanksgiving and a two week break around Christmas with the season ending around the last week in February.

Ice Time:
There will be two, 1-hour practices a week. The days/times for practice have yet to be determined, but will be similar to those in the past. Please be prompt for practices and plan to be there at least 15 minutes ahead of time. If you need help getting your child dressed in their hockey equipment, please ask the coach and we will find someone to assist you. 

Equipment Rental:
NO FEE AGAIN THIS YEAR! The fee to rent basic hockey equipment will be dropped for all U6 skaters, although a post-dated check in the amount of $25 will be needed as a deposit.  A complete set (excluding stick, mouth guard, cup, leggings and skates) can be rented free of charge for the winter hockey season. If a skater has some of their own equipment, individual pieces may also be rented free of charge during the season. All rentals must go through the association’s equipment chairperson. Equipment must be turned in at the end of the season. If equipment is not turned in at that time, a fee will be assessed. Equipment may be rented over the summer, but arrangements must be made with the equipment chairperson by the end of the last scheduled turn-in time. If arrangements are not made, it will be assumed that the equipment has not been returned and a fee will be assessed.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact David Jolicoeur at 262-707-0596 or email him at davejolicoeur@gmail.com.  A list of equipment needed for hockey can be found on the website (see tab “New to Hockey”.  PLEASE NOTE: fitting for equipment will take place at the time of the walk-in registration. Please bring a bag (a large trash bag works fine) to take your rented equipment home with you.

Housekeeping:
First year U6 families are exempt from housekeeping fees.  Second year U6 families are assessed a $100 housekeeping fee.  This fee covers the weekly cleaning of the rink.      

Volunteer Hours:
Hockey in the Sauk Prairie area survives in large part due to the tremendous support of families in the association that volunteer their time to keep things running.  All U6 families are asked to complete 8 volunteer hours, as well as assist with the U6 Fun Day and contribute toward the year-end clean-up.  Other volunteer opportunities include team manager, Cow Chip parade, coaching, helping put the ice in or take it out, and driving the Zamboni.  Note that only concessions and Zamboni driving count towards the required hours.  Any assistance you can offer the association would be greatly appreciated.

Policy form:
As part of completing registration, each family agrees to abide by the 2016-2017 SPYHA policies.  This policy must be agreed to before completing registration. 

Fundraising:
There is no mandatory fundraising for SPYHA members for the 2016-2017 season.  Throughout the year SPYHA will have opportunities to reduce your future registration fees.  These opportunities may include Scrips, Bucky Books and Little Caesars Pizza.  

All members are responsible for registering their skater(s) online with USA Hockey/WAHA: This is required of all our skaters, no matter their age. There is a $50 fee ($40 USA Hockey and $10 WAHA) to have your skater(s) 7 and older become a USA Hockey member (skaters 6 and under must register, but there is no fee involved).
