GPMHA has been trying to react as quickly as possible to the Government of Alberta’s information, which has changed twice in the last 56 hours. We cannot provide the amount of any refunds other than to say they could range from 20 - 40 % of the base registration fee. Refunds will depend upon the age division as well as our fixed costs. We need a quick turn around on our numbers so that we can have the schedule ready for Tuesday, Feb 16. We are working our best to get the players back on the ice as quickly as possible given the circumstances.
Base fees: U5 $ 220.00 U7 $ 394.00 U9 $ 460.00 U11 $ 665.00 U13 $ 726.00 U15 $ 745.00 U18 $ 763.00
The base registration fees that we collect from each member makes up 63% of our revenue each year and pays for 63% of our total budget.
The other 37% revenue is made up with the raffle, tournaments, casino and sponsorship dollars. We do these things to keep the base cost of playing hockey as low as possible.
The COVID restrictions definitely has limited the 37 % revenue that we normally have to keep out of pocket costs down. We have cut costs wherever possible since last March to save money where we can.
The evaluation/tryout fee U11 - U18 divisions paid covers the expenses of those evaluations/tryouts.
The $ 200.00 fundraising fee would have been recouped when you sold the raffle tickets.
The Development Sessions which will run from February 16 until Stage 2 is declared, and will include 2 ice sessions per week. We will then react to the GOA Stage 2 guidelines.
For now - we will have one team per ice session, with half of the players on one half of the ice and half of the players on the other half of the ice, each with designated team staff.
The maximum on each half of the ice mandated by the GOA is 9 players and 1 team staff.
For now - all U5, U7, U9 and Recreation U11 and U13 will have their ice times on the weekends.
All of the All Peace League teams will have their normal ice times during the week.
GPAC and PCFAC will be advising their teams of their ice times.
We have secured ice until April 30.
