Registration Fee

BYHA hopes each family understands there is significant time and effort surrounding establishing registration fee amounts for each level.  Beyond the registration fee BYHA relies heavily on sponsors and donations to keep fees at the most reasonable level possible. 

Registration fees are utilized to pay of operating expenses such as:

  • Tryouts (ice time and evaluators)
  • Games and practice ice time
  • Tournament fees
  • District 10 fees (referees, district tournaments, other costs)
  • BYHA equipment (jerseys, socks and breezer covers) 
  • Coaches

BYHA primarily uses historical operating results to gauge registration fees.  In addition, estimated figures and data is used such as; number of registered players, ice time hourly rates, District 10 fees, number and location of tournaments.

We strongly encourage support of our Charitable Gambling sites in an effort to keep the fees to a minimum.


Team/Rostering Fee

At higher levels of play an additional fee will be charged.  The rostering/season fee will be assessed shortly after tryouts are concluded and teams are finalized.

The fee is to cover additional costs associated with play at this level.

PAYMENT PLAN: (Traveling only)

CHANGE YOUR PAYMENT METHOD:
If you wish to change your payment method or bank account, you will need to login to your SportsEngine account and perform a manual payment on your order BEFORE your next payment date.  During this manual payment, you can update you payment account information.   All subsequent payments will be pulled from this new account on the scheduled pay date.
