Fall Hockey Registration NOW OPEN!

Letter from AMHA President and Board Leadership

Hello AMHA Family,

Hello All! On behalf of AMHA and the board, we want to welcome you and your players to the 2017 - 2018 hockey season. AMHA is very excited about the upcoming season and hope you feel the same. Before the season begins, the board wanted to provide you with updates related to changes to our payment processes, volunteer program, and corporate sponsorship.

Enrollment is now open; you can go to Ameshockey.com and register your skater anytime between now and the start of the season, October 2.   

1.  Fees

Rates for each level are published below.  In general, rates were raised 3.5% this year.  The biggest factor in our need to raise rates is the City of Ames raised their charge for ice by 4%.  Ice time is our largest expense by far and has a direct influence on what we charge skaters.     As a board,  we work very hard to keep fees as low as possible.   Skater fees and fundraising are our only source of income, and we hope to increase our fundraising efforts to avoid future fee increases.   We welcome your ideas for fundraisers.   

*all pre-registered skaters, Squirts and above will receive a $100 discount on their 2017-2018  season fees you will receive a coupon for $100 in a separate email, that will reduce your skater’s fee by $100.

The board also approved a new payment system to help streamline and simplify our collection of skater fees. Payments will only be accepted by credit or debit card this year.  As you register your skater, you will be asked for a card number and authorization to charge this card for your annual fees.  The first payment will be due at the time of registration.  Each level will have a different number of payments due and this is listed below with the charges.   The second payment will be due on Oct 1st , third payment on Nov 1st and so on.  There is an option to pay your outstanding fees early if you are interested, please contact the assistant treasurer at amhatreasurer@gmail.com or call Jerry Seydell @ 515.460.1536.

In addition to the coupon for early registration, if you have multiple skaters in AMHA above the Mite Level, you will receive a $50.00 coupon for your second and/or third skater.

2.   New Volunteer program

A new mandatory Volunteer program will be replacing the previous small programs and fundraising requirement.  Each skater will be required to earn ten credits of volunteer service during the season.  Coaches, Coordinates, locker room attendants, committee members, and game day helpers, are just a few positions where volunteer credits can be earned.  More details will follow with additional ways to earn credits.  Any skaters who does not meet the volunteer requirement will be charged $150.

3.   Corporate Sponsorship / Greens

Due to Federal Tax guidelines and MidWest league requirements, AMHA has had to revamped our Corporate Sponsorship and Greens.  AMHA can no longer offer individual players discounts towards their fees  for these programs.  The board has incorporated these programs into our volunteer program to ensure that skaters still receive credit for the work they do for AMHA.

More details on these and other AMHA policies and programs will follow.  The board is available to answer questions at any time and I can be reached personally at president@ameshockey.com. Thank-you for being a part of Ames Hockey.
