2015/2016 Fee Structure

Above fees are to be increased by $50 for each player above Atom age in lieu of the Tag Day fundraising event. All fees also include the costs of insurance, HNB tickets, and team photos.
This year there is an option to pay 50% of the total cost at registration with the remainder of the fee paid by Oct. 31/15. Postdated cheques for the 2nd payment are required at the time of registration.
Initiation, Novice & Atom age: all are required to perform fundraising through the Tag Day program. If they cannot meet this requirement, a $50 fee will be collected at time of registration, over and above the dues noted above. Please remember this is SSMHA’s most reliable method of fund raising to offset high costs.
Note: Non residents must provide photocopy of current medical insurance coverage at time of registration. The player will not be permitted on ice until such is received.
A fee of $50 in addition to all regular fees will be applied at the discretion of the Registrar/Executive, if the registration is after the designated dates.
All players are required to sell Hockey New Brunswick fundraising tickets. This is a program administered by Hockey New Brunswick. The cost for these tickets has already been included in your Membership fee, therefore if you sell them, the money you receive is yours.
Tickets will sell for $3 each and each player is issued 10 tickets. The ticket stubs must be turned into the player’s coach no later than November 30/15.
Are you interested in coaching hockey? If so, St. Stephen Minor Hockey is looking for coaches for the upcoming season.
Coaches are needed for all levels, from Initiation to Midget.
For additional information or questions, please contact Josh Hatt, email@example.com.
Coach application deadline for the upcoming season is September 7th, 2015. Please submit your application.
St. Stephen Minor Hockey would like to thank all the 2014-2015 coaches and volunteers for the dedication and support. SSMHA does not exist without volunteers like yourselves.

Fundraising to offset the high costs of running our Minor Hockey Program is an essential part of everyone’s commitment to our players and the game. New ideas and offers to help by taking lead roles are always welcomed and greatly appreciated. Please note that at Registration this year, we will be asking for volunteers from all age groups – players and parents – to be added to a calling list to help with fund raising events.
Note: All players must participate or the fundraiser fee will be applied.
Regular monthly meetings will be held every second Tuesday of each month, at 6:30 pm at the Moosehead room at the Civic center. Each team must have a representative attend the meetings to vote on motions as well as bring back information to the teams players and parents. Parents are encouraged to attend these meetings to remain informed on the activities of the Association.
If membership is limited, registrants will be accepted based on their date
& time of registration (first in).
