PAYMENT OF FEES
- All outstanding fees and commitments from previous year(s) must be settled before your current registration will be accepted.
- Fees may be paid by Cash, Debit, Cheque, Visa or MasterCard at all in-person registrations.
- If registering by “scanning and emailing” the registration forms, you must remit your fees immediately by completing the “Fee Calculation” sheet accompanyingyour child’s registration form. You can remit fees by cheque or by supplying your Visa or MasterCard number in the space provided.
- A maximum of two post-dated cheques will be accepted (some exceptions can be made but you have to make personal arrangements with the Registrar before you remit any more than 2 cheques). You must remit 50% of the fee up front and the final 50% can be post-dated if necessary. The latest date we will accept for post-dated cheques is September 30, 2018. Please note, however, that if you postdate a cheque for AFTER the July 31st early bird deadline, you will automatically be obligated to remit the “late” fee (i.e., any date after the 31st of July).
- NSF cheques will result in the full amount of all fees plus a $40 service charge becoming payable immediately (by cash, money order or bank draft only). Your child will not be allowed to participate in any further on-ice activities (games and practices) until all fees and charges have been paid in full.
- Any NSF cheque will result in the loss of the privilege of writing further cheques with the Club.
- Working one bingo per registration is mandatory for every single category - Discovery through to Peewee. Please note that bingo revenue is returned to the registrants through subsidized ice costs, reduced conditioning camp costs, payment of coach courses for Hockey Canada certification, reimbursement of referee fees at the end of the year, pant shells, jerseys, goalie equipment, etc.
- If you want to “opt out” of the bingo, please add $100.00 to your registration fee. The fee of $100.00 to “opt out” of the bingo is only available at the time of registration. If you choose to “opt out” after the season has started the “opt-out fee after your initial registration” will be $200.00.
- For those working the bingo, an undated deposit cheque in the amount of $200.00 is required at the time of registration. When your bingo requirement has been satisfied this cheque will be returned to you. If you no longer have cheques we will require a credit card number together with applicable expiry date, or a $200.00 cash deposit.
- Book your bingo at our in-person registration day or contact either of our Bingo Directors:
Failure to book your mandatory bingo by November 1st, failure to work your bingo on the prearranged date, cancelling with anything less than 24 hours’ notice, or in the event your bingo requirement has not been satisfied by the end of the season, will result in this deposit cheque being cashed, or your credit card being charged for the amount of $200.00, or forfeiture of your cash deposit.
