Fee Structure Changes for 2018-19

The NVMHA Board of Directors has reviewed the costs associated with having all of the players on the ice for the year, including the different costs associated with rep and house levels.  The board noted that with the history of receiving an annual gaming grant of $100,000, the costs associated with all players will continue to be subsidized to a certain degree. 

The board has set the 2018-19 season fees in an effort to ensure that costs remain closely aligned with the actual per player costs. It is important to note that the board is making every effort to be frugal where possible without adversely impacting the programs offered.

Other changes that members should be aware are as follows:

  1. All registration costs will increase by $20 after April 30. Early registration is needed so that NVMHA can more carefully anticipate the number of players and react accordingly over the summer months; and
  2. NVMHA has switched to a more efficient and cost-effective on-line registration system.  Through this new system those using credit cards to pay for registration will notice that a 2% user charge is added to the cost.  The purpose of this is to ensure that the association as a whole are not burdened with the ever-increasing costs associated with the use of credit cards.
  3. Three years ago, the board approved the provision of a discount for goalies in an effort to try to encourage participation of players interested in being full time goalies.  This year, following a review that showed little to no improvement in the registration for goalies, the board has determined to remove the discount.  Some of the funds recovered from this decision will be directly invested to further enhance our goalie development program.

As a result, the board have approved a 2018-19 fees schedule that includes fee increases for Atom through Juvenile divisions and rep program fees. Specifically, the Atom through Midget divisions will see increases of approximately $80 on registration fees ($75 for Bantam). Juvenile players will see a $60 increase in fees.

Rationale for the fee structure change is as follows:

1. Registration in all divisions decreased significantly in 2016-17 and again in 2017-18 which means the fixed costs of the association are absorbed by a smaller number of registered players. The numbers are:

  • 2014-15 – 1025/1082
  • 2015-16 – 1024/1082
  • 2016-17 – 975/1082
  • 2017-18 – 874/1082

2. Costs in all areas continue to increase with inflation.
