  • Sub Fee is $30 per game (only applies to individual fee teams)
  • Once a team has 14 paid players and a paid goalie subs may be added to the roster up to the maximum of 17 players and 1 goalie total. Subs pay $30 per game on all teams paying individually. Teams paying individually are subject to sub fees, teams paying as a team are not. Teams with less than full rosters may use pre-approved subs under certain conditions.

Multi-league Discount

  • We offer a special 30% off discount on your 2nd league enrollment. Only applies players plaing on teams made up of players paying individually.
  • Multi-league discount applies to a third league as long as the player’s skill level is appropriate for that league.
  • Goalies are not eligible for the multi-league discount as they are already getting 50% off league fees for each league they play goalie in. A goalie who skates as a player in a different league pays full price for that second league. The only way for an individual to get more than 1 discount is if he/she plays goalie in 2 leagues.
