UCC's annual player registration fees will increase marginally in 2011/12 but will continue to include a Cyclone equipment kit.  The 2011/12 registration fees will be $3,400 for minor bantam, major bantam and minor midget.  Major midget’s player registration will be $2,300.  The main reasons for the increase were:

  • Increase ice fees
  • Increase in tournament fees
  • Increase in referee fees

UCC Executive's objective was to maintain a balance between player investment, reducing expenditures where possible, minimizing the total financial impact on families and listening to survey feedback and suggestions.  As a result the following actions were taken:

  • UCC will continue to invest in player development
  • Based on survey feedback we will not be renewing with Peak Performance
    • Schedule professional instruction to conduct player development in a central location that is more flexible to each team’s practice and game schedule. This will result in less travel for players and families and reducing travel costs
    • Maintain all player development areas (e.g. on-ice, off-ice and goal tending)
    • Professional video analyze for the organization is being looked at as a tool to develop hockey knowledge as well this season
  • Invest in coaching staff using a fixed fee format.  The objective was to attract high quality independent coaching staff to come to UCC versus going to our competitors
  • Vendors contracts were renegotiated and reduce to essential items were possible
    • Cyclone's mandatory kit included in the registration fees will include:
      • Game jerseys
      • Socks
      • Pant shells
      • Tracksuits
      • Tryout jerseys
      • Hockey bags
      • Practice jerseys
    • In addition the itemized cost of the items has been renegotiated to a lower price
  • UCC has initiated a couple pilot items to provide additional potential savings to the families, including
    • Harrow stick program - offering reduce prices for high quality composite hockey sticks to UCC players
    • Continued 15% discount to Lacroix Sports for additional hockey equipment purchases

The net with all these adjustments and maintaining a player investment balance was a slight increase in the annual player registration fees.  Any questions please feel free to ask Dave Van Stralen or Bill Kalyn.
