IMPORTANT NOTES

All participants registering for BYHA (players, coaches, volunteers) MUST register with USA HOCKEY prior to registering with the association. You will get a nine-digit confirmation code that needs to be entered during BYHA registration. 

The registration fee is $40 for USA Hockey and $10 for MN Hockey (US Hockey affiliate) if age 7 or older. The USA Hockey fee is waived for age 6 and younger, however, registration must still be completed to obtain a confirmation number. If a participant plays and coaches he/she pays only one registration fee. USA Hockey requires this fee because USA Hockey carries insurance for an injury on the ice.

The home address should be used for all participants. If a player lives in one state and plays in another, enter the home address and pay any applicable Affiliate fee. The confirmation page/number will be accepted by any USA Hockey program in the country.

REGISTRATION AND TEAM/ICE FEES

BYHA is a non-profit organization. All of our programs are budgeted to break even. The combination of registration and team fees must cover the costs of operating our Association programs. These fees are determined each year based on our current operating costs, projected player counts and best estimates of revenue from Sponsorships, Fundraising Initiatives and Charitable Gambling donations.

Registration fees are utilized to pay for operating costs, such as:

  • pre-skate, tryout, and initiation ice
  • equipment (pucks, puck bags, first aid equipment, etc.)
  • administration costs (office supplies, website, postage, annual audit, etc.)

Registration fee is due for all players at time of registration. Also, all outstanding family accounts must be paid in full. Players will not be allowed to participate in pre-skates, tryouts and in-house initiation skates if there is an outstanding prior year balance.

An additional team fee will be assessed after team selections are made. This will occur 15-20 days after team selections are complete. You will be notified of the amount due. Team/Ice fees are utilized to pay for operating costs, such as:

  • District 10 fees (game ice, referee fees, etc.)
  • Practice ice time
  • Coaching stipends/credits
  • Tournament fees
  • Off ice training

Payment options for team/ice fees will be done online using your SportsEngine account, and can be made via credit or debit card*.
