Frequently Asked Questions:
Do you have any exact dates for tournaments?
- Once ID Skates have been completed, we will evaluate each team, and choose tournaments in which we feel they can compete best. With the current COVID situation, we also do not want to promise a tournament to our players and parents and not follow through. We are hoping at a later date, we will have a better idea of which tournaments will be happening, and can give everyone plenty of notice to plan for other spring sports, vacations, school events, etc. If we are able to find a way to determine tournament dates prior to the end of ID Skates, we will notify everyone immediately so they can plan accordingly.
When will the weekend skills camp be?
- Since the USA Hockey Youth season has been extended into April, we are planning for our Weekend Skills Camp to be after tryouts for the 2021-2022 Youth Season, to ensure we don't interfere with games/nationals/tryouts. We are estimating for the weekend camp to be sometime in May.
Do I have to pay everything up front now?
- By structuring the program the way we have, you only have to pay for the 3 ID Skates first, then after teams are picked, and you are notified of tournaments, then the full Spring cost of $675 will be due.
If you have any further questions please let us know. We look forward to seeing you all at our skates February 20th!
