Re: Equipment Fee & Social Tickets
The WEFH organization continues to grow rapidly, with the total number of registered players increasing from 225 to 275 over the last three hockey seasons. This increased enrollment has resulted in an expanded number of teams and roster sizes at all levels and age groups. As an organization, we currently field 18 teams (3 AA, 7 A1, 8 A2), making us the largest female hockey organization in the province.
Equipment Fee - $50 per player
In 2013-14, WEFH fielded many questions and concerns regarding the condition of both Stars and Saints game jerseys. In most instances, players were wearing jerseys that were many years old and in poor condition, or teams were provided mismatched sets of jerseys (with teams receiving multiple styles for their home or away jerseys). After further investigation, it was clear that no new Stars jerseys had been purchased by the organization for several years. In 2014-15, the total cost of purchasing new home and away game jerseys for all Stars and Saints teams was approximately $45,000. This year, we have purchased another $10,000 in jerseys due to continued growth.
The $50.00/player equipment fee for all rostered players was implemented last year. This fee is used to fund the purchase of new game jerseys (now and in the future). This fee will be reviewed on an annual basis by the WEFH executive.
Social Tickets - $30 per family
The WEFH regretfully announces that we will not be running a Stars Cup during the 2015-16 season. The dates to run a post playoff tournament conflict with the Easter weekend. The Hockey Winnipeg season ends on March 24, 2016 and Easter weekend is immediately after. This tournament raised approximately $20,000 in net revenue every year. This revenue is combined with regular hockey registration fees to cover the following costs:
1. Ice for all regular season and playoff games
2. Refs/time keepers for all regular season and playoff games
3. League insurance costs
4. Practice ice for all player evaluations (only the Stars program)
5. Independent evaluators for all A level team selections
6. Home/away game socks and helmet decals for all Stars/Saints players
7. Criminal Record Checks and child abuse registry checks for all coaches and team personnel
8. Goalie development clinics throughout year.
9. Goalie equipment subsidy for all 1st year goalies
In lieu of the Stars Cup this year and in order to make up for this lost revenue, the WEFH Executive has decided to host a SOCIAL at Southdale Community Centre on Friday, November 13th, 2015. MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
There is a mandatory purchase of 2 tickets ($15 each) per family. There will also be a team requirement to provide a silent auction prize (similar to the Stars Cup expectations in previous years). This will be a great opportunity for the Winnipeg East Female Hockey community to get together and have some fun. More details to come!
Stars gear clothing fittings will be held @ Notre Dame MPR (multi purpose room, building next to rink)
