Each player pays a yearly fee of $3,000 to contribute to our operating budget of over $90,000/year. This pays for travel expenses, practice ice time, and uniforms. A yearly fee is common practice in collegiate level club hockey and we make every effort to keep player costs as low as possible. Mandatory fund raising efforts will also occur various times enabling us to keep the fees low.
