We are closing in on the month of November, which means the kickoff of our House Programs! As many of you know, the success of these programs is 100% driven by our dedicated group of ice volunteers. With that said, we are looking for as many volunteers as possible to support the Learn to Skate, Instructional Hockey and Mite House programs for this upcoming season.
At a recent meeting, the PYH Board of Directors reviewed travel team program fees for the upcoming 2016-2017 season. The Board approved the following tuition schedule for our various travel teams which participate in the Middlesex-Yankee Conference, the Valley Hockey League and the Town Line (Mite) League.
Fees and registration information for our House (non-travel) programs (Learn to Skate, Instructional and Mite House) have already been announced in a separate email. Check for the early registration discount!
For the 2016-2017 season Parkway will be fielding girls U10, U12, U14 and U16/18 teams in the Middlesex-Yankee Conference. Parkway will have teams at the Mite, Squirt, Pee Wee, Bantam and Midget level in the Valley Hockey League. There will also be a separate Mite team in the Town-Line program which utilizes a combination of cross-ice and full ice games.
Travel team fees are based on several factors including costs for 30-35 regular season games and playoffs depending on league affiliation (12-15 games for half-season teams; 25 for Mite travel), practice sessions, and operating costs. Fees are also determined by the number of players at each level, league registration, ice costs, and prompt payment of fees by families. Parkway has been presented with increased operating costs for the upcoming season for ice and league games. We have attempted to subsidize the increases as best we can.
All travel team games are scheduled to start right after Labor Day. Coaches will be reaching out to players regarding practices which will begin during the last two weeks of August.
Girls U10 / U12 / U14 - $1,250
Girls U16/18 - $650
Goalies (with own equipment)- $400
Fees for Girls U10, 12, & 14 teams will be due in installments by August 15, 2016, October 1, 2016 and January 15, 2017. The balance of payments for Girls U-16/18 will be due by September 2, 2016 since the season concludes in November. $250 of the $300 try out fee previously paid, or other amounts paid at the time of try outs will be deducted from the above totals when they are billed.
Valley Hockey League:
Midgets (Half Season) - $600
Squirt / Pee Wee / Bantam - $1,350
Mites - $1,000
Goalies (with own equipment) - $400
The Valley League requires all game fees for the entire season to be paid by participating leagues by December 1. As a result the fees for Squirt, Pee Wee, & Bantam players will be due and must be paid in three installments by August 15, 2016, October 1, 2016 and then January 15, 2017. The balance of payments for 1/2 season Midgets will be due and must be paid by September 2, 2016 since the season concludes in November. Please remember that $250 of the $300 try out fee previously paid, or other amounts paid at the time of try outs will be deducted from the above totals when they are billed.
