Explanation of Fee Increase 2018-19
Submitted By Stacey Dineen on Thursday, May 3, 2018
Dear WGHA Membership

We would like to make everyone aware that for our coming 2018-2019 season, our registration fees and rep fees will both be increasing.  The WGHA Executive would like to take this opportunity to provide information as to why there is a more significant increase to fees this year, in comparison to previous seasons.

Many of our expenses continue to rise, and in order to cover these higher costs, we have to raise our membership fees.  Ice costs increase every year, and that is coupled with the fact that our growth as an Association has increased the need for more ice time.  Things such as Insurance costs, Admin Fees, League and OWHA fees have gone up, and due to the minimum wage increase, our Timekeeper and Referees costs, which have remained fairly consistent over the past few seasons, will be higher.

In the past, we have tried our best to keep fee increases to a minimum. However, after a detailed analysis of our cost per player, it has become apparent that our fees do need to go up significantly in order to protect the future of the WGHA Association and its members.  We feel our new fees are in line with many other local associations and allow the WGHA Association to continue to provide a great hockey experience for our players.

Your WGHA Executive is committed to continuing to minimize fees increases to the best of our ability. As a membership, we ask that you continue to help us meet this goal by providing support for our fundraising activities, such as volunteering at our annual Kyla Kowalik tournament. Any recommendations for potential Sponsors would also be welcomed.

We look forward to a fun and successful 2018-2019 hockey season!

Your WGHA Executive
