Make sure you put together a team budget at the beginning of the year to determine your team fees.

Some things to keep in mind:

  • Exhibition game ref fees
  • Goalie equipment cleaning, if applicable
  • Replacement team balls
  • Ice packs
  • Tournament fees (entrance, meals, covering non-parent coach’s costs, etc.)
  • Team building events
  • Team gear (shooter shirts, socks, hoodies, etc.)
  • Gym fees – for dryland training
  • Year-end celebration (recognition for players and coaching staff, food, venue, etc.)
