*Remember to choose MO for the state you play in during your USA Hockey registration.  

*Multiple Children Discount- We offer a $75 discount on each child registered AFTER your first one.  Enter code SIBLING in each player's registration AFTER your first child.  

*It is our goal to continue to field Lady Hawks teams at as many age divisions available based on interest. However, if full teams are unable to be formed, girls will be rostered on co-ed teams based on evaluations. 

*Girls that choose to dual roster (play for a co-ed team and an all girls Lady Hawk team) will be sent a request to pay the additional  team fee once teams are made.  

*14u - This season we will have tryouts, not evaluations at the 14u level.   We will make every effort to have a spot for all players that sign up, but with the vast skill range and the introduction of checking at this level, we may have to make a hard decision and cut some players.  This decision was not made lightly. Hopefully, we have plenty of players sign up at all skill levels and do not have to make any cuts and this is a non-issue.  

*14u - If you do not make a team, you will get a full refund minus a $50 tryout fee.

*New mandatory volunteer requirements. Each family will be required to volunteer a minimum of 6 hours throughout the season. If you do not meet the minimum you will be charged a $100 volunteer fee. There is also the option to buyout of the volunteer requirement by paying $100 at the time of registration. All funds collected from the buyout fee will be used to reward those who volunteer extra time. Volunteer opportunities include but are not limited to game clock, scoresheet, penalty box, fundraising and helping at other Ice Hawks events. Opportunities can be found here https://www.icehawkshockey.org/parent-resources/volunteer-opportunities/4794 or by asking a board member, coach or team manager.

*Uniforms (jerseys, socks, shells) and warmups must be purchased separately. We are partnering with SkateTech to deliver our uniforms and scheduled fitting times will be posted later. Please be on the lookout for those fitting times.

*There will be opportunities to fundraise this year to help offset your fees. The first will be TJ's pizza sale soon after evaluations. Please be on the lookout for communications regarding additional fundraising opportunities. Any questions or to volunteer please contact fundraising@icehawkshockey.org

*SIIH reserves the right to refuse registration at its discretion with written notification to the registrant.

*All sales are final.
