At the time of registration, all outstanding past due accounts must be paid in full. Players will not be able participate in any WBLAHA events if there is an outstanding prior year balance.
Each age group this season will have a Registration Fee, a Base Fee, and a Level Fee. When you register, you will have the option to pay the whole fee (Registration and Base) in full or elect to pay through an installment plan.
Registration Fees are utilized to pay for operating costs, such as administration costs (office supplies, website, software licenses, postage, annual audits, etc.), association owned equipment and property, and Rob Sund Scholarship Funds.
A majority of the age groups have multiple levels such as the 12U age group where there will be 12U A and B teams or for PeeWee's there will be AA, B1, B2 and C teams. No matter what level of play for each of those age groups, all registered players will pay a Base Fee during the registration period.
Base (and Level) Fees are utilized to pay for player costs, such as: Level grading, District 2 fees (game ice, referee fees, league fees, etc), practice ice time, coach reimbursements, Jerseys and socks, Player Development, tournament fees, in-house jamboree for Mite/8U levels, and more.
Payments will be done online using your SportsEngine account. Payments can be made via credit card, debit card or bank account. If choosing an installment plan, payments will be divided into three equal payments (Registration Fee and Base Fee). Payments will be set up to autopay on the following dates:
After tryouts/evaluations, your registered player may be placed on a team that incurs an additional Level Fee, which will be invoiced via SportsEngine and payable within 30 days of invoice. These teams will additionally pay a Level Fee:

As a result of Minnesota Hockey's change in birthday cutoff policy from July 1st to June 1st, any player born in June of 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010, that are not otherwise eligible for a "grade play up", may have the option to continue playing up with the age group in which they were mandated to play before the change to MN Hockey's birthday cutoff policy.
For the 2020-21 hockey season we will implement the following discounts and opportunities for goalies:
Many of the discounts and opportunities noted above are similar to last season. However, we are now expanding those opportunities so we can continue to grow our association’s number of goalies and evolve the position.
We understand—especially at lower levels—there are several players who may be part-time goalies. We are not excluding those players from this opportunity. With that being said, level directors, coordinators and coaches will work directly with those families to provide some of the same benefits. Please reach out to either Joe Law, Boys Director, or Jason Sampson, Girls Director, if you have any desire to take part in this program. Final determination regarding discounts will be at the discretion of the level directors and under supervision of the board.
Tryout Fees are an ADDITIONAL $50 which will be paid during registration. Players who choose not to try out (and Mite/8U players) will be required to attend level grading, which is included in registration fees.
Please be sure to pick up your skater’s tryout jersey on Sunday, September 20th between the hours of 6:00 PM and 8:30PM at the Hippodrome . Your player will be evaluated using the number on this jersey, so please make every effort to pick up your tryout jersey at this time.
Also, remind your player not to trade jerseys with another skater. Due to COVID 19 restrictions, please be sure you wear a mask while inside the Hipp. You will also be asked to exit the building as soon as you have your skater(s) jersey.
Team managers may assign specific Team Fees, which are separate and unconnected to WBLAHA fees.
The WBLAHA board requires ALL teams considering additional Team Fees to have a meeting with parents to discuss discretionary team expenses. Discretionary expenses may include additional tournaments, additional practice ice, scrimmages, team gear, team events, player awards, etc.
The Dibs requirement for all families has been eliminated this season. Families will no longer be required to earn Dibs credits by working tournaments, concessions, or other association mandated requirements. Instead, there will be a $35 fee per player to cover this expense.
Teams hosting tournaments will be required to manage their tournaments and ensure the success of these tournaments.
