Registration Cost and Rep Fees
Submitted By Ken Jamieson on Thursday, August 30, 2012
Many people each year question the cost of registration and how it is calculated as well as Rep Fees which are paid by each Rep team to the Association and are based on how much more a Rep team costs to play hockey as opposed to our House League teams.  The main costs difference is in the ice costs as our HL teams play another GMHA team the cost of their games and shared practices is spread out over two teams where Rep teams play out of town teams so the cost of the ice is only spread over the number of players on one team.  So this document outlines all the costs that the GMHA incurrs each year to put a HL player on the ice at the different age levels, then shows the difference in costs for the same age level Rep players. 

So the first page shows that the costs of Jr. HL players are roughly $500 and Sr. HL are roughly $635 dollars so the average is where the $580.00 registration fee comes from (the additional $20 making it $600.00 this year is part of a GMHA fundraiser which you can choose to sell and recoup your money or use the coupons yourself).
The $100.00 Early Bird Discount ensures that the Association gets players registrered sooner and allows for better planning of jerseys orders, number of Coaches at each level required and ice time allocations as all of this has to be done a few months before the season starts. When we don't know till the last minute that's when the costs can increase drastically because we need to have an even number of teams to make the scheduling easiest and have the teams play each other equal numbers of times throughout the season, if we end up getting 5 or 6 players registering late and then we go over the maximum number of players per team then we need to add 2 more teams. Sounds simple but then we end up with less than the maximum amount of players per team (which drives up the cost per player to the Association as there are less players to divide the cost of the ice time over) we end up with 2-3 or more wasted sets of jerseys and socks on all the teams as they were ordered months ahead and we have to order 2 more full sets of socks and jerseys for the new teams so it gets VERY expensive. Not to mention where do we get the extra 2 hours of ice time a week now for those teams to practice and play? Then we have to scramble to find more Coaches, Trainers, Managers which is always very difficult and usually when its at the last minute like this the individuals don't usually have all their required Courses, Police Check and Respect in Sport which takes several weeks or a month to get, meaning those teams can't be rostered or play in tournaments and if Rep teams are looking to AP any of those players they can't do that until the teams are rosters. So this creates a HUGE problem for all of us and why the Early Bird discount is offered and why even if you are a couple days late no exceptions are made because it doesn't matter what date is picked people would leave it till the last minute and forget, or things go wrong, etc., etc. The costs of the jerseys and socks must be paid when we get them as well as the team registration fees, insurance feels

The second page is the Summary of these costs and shows how much it costs for the various teams as well as the amont the Rep Teams cost in addition to the HL teams and thus what should be the "Rep Fee" for those teams.  Then the recommended fees that the teams are playing this year and the a note that the "loss" from those extra costs is made up by the Revenues from the Rep Silverstick Tournaments that the GMHA hosts annually.
