Would you rather pay gate fees as part of your child's registration fee?

The AMHA has been made aware that several individuals have been skipping the gate and entering games through the complex's back door.

Entry fees pay for our time keepers and our referees.  In any one year on average, the cost of referees and time keepers can be up $35,000.00.

It is unfortunate, that the vast majority of parents have to cover the cost for those that choose not to contribute to that cost.

As a result, we've brainstormed ideas and come up with a few options.

1. Have a gate at both the front and back doors
2. Add the gate fees to your child's registration cost
3. Everyone is honest, and contribute fairly to cover the cost of the referees/time keepers by paying at the gate.

We have created a VOTING poll on the home page, to determine if parents would simply like to pay their gate fees as part of their child's registration fee.

Have a voice, enter the poll. The poll closes at March break. This will help the AMHA decide if gate fees will be added to your child's registration next year.
Tim Hortons
The Timbits Minor Sports Program is a community-oriented sponsorship program for children four to eight years old who participate in local house league sports teams. The program's philosophy is not based on winning or losing - but on learning a new sport, making new friends, and just taking time out to be a kid. Tim Hortons currently sponsors over 200,000 children who play on hockey, soccer, lacrosse, t-ball, baseball and ringette teams across Canada and in the United States. Each sponsored team is supplied with Timbits Minor Sports jerseys or T-shirts. Timbits hockey teams are often given the opportunity to play on-ice scrimmages during intermissions at Junior, American Hockey League (AHL) and National Hockey League (NHL) games.
