Registration FAQ

Why register so early?
Banff Minor Hockey gets first choice of ice, but we need to know how many kids/teams we'll have early on - before the town opens up ice availability to other teams.

What are fees used for?
Ice fees make up a significant portion of our cost, followed by paying for referees and league memberships. Our registration fees are often 25-40% lower than other leagues and in some cases do not cover all costs. The difference is made up by tournament revenue.

Why do fees go up with each division?
Each division includes additional costs such as ice time for games, playoffs, and referee costs. Fees per division are generally reflective of per-player costs.
