Game Jersey and Warm-up Credits

Please note that the registration deposit will be less if you do not require new team jerseys, warm-up pants or a team jacket.   For example, a skater who needs only team jerseys will be paying $404 as an initial deposit ($238 + 166), a player who needs only a warm-up jacket will be paying $299 as an initial deposit ($238+$61).  These changes were implemented to reduce the overall cost of the program  to families that already had these items.

Game Jerseys Re-use Policy & Practice Jerseys

If you plan on reusing game jerseys from last season, please keep in mind that you will be required to remove ALL patches that were added on from the previous season (Elite, Wolves Cup, etc). 

All players will be receiving new practice jerseys for the 2017-18 season.  There will be no credits issued for those items if you state you do not need them.
