The fees have been set and the ice will be ready Nov. 1 so let's play hockey.
The Craig Youth Hockey Association met Monday and elected new officer and decided on player fees for the 2000-2001 hockey season.
New officers elected are: President, Randy Armstrong; Executive Vice President, Jeff Hammond; First Vice President, Jim Reiman; and Denise Seick was elected secretary.
The fee structure for the season is an increase from the 1999-2000 season, but the season this year will run from November to March, rather than January to March. Last year, volunteers worked throughout the fall installing a refrigeration system. This year, with the system in place and set to freeze, the skating season will run longer.
The fees, with also include Craig Youth Hockey Association fees, are as follows:
n Night League, for five to 18 year olds: $131. This is for 12-weeks of ice time, with guaranteed skating two nights a week.
n Traveling Team, for mites, squirts, pee wees, bantams and high school players: $275. This fee will cover the entire season, which will run November through March, with two practices a week. There will be an additional charge for some games and tournaments.
Fees and dates are all "pending on working things out with the Moffat County Parks and Recreation Department," according to Kent Nielson, outgoing president of the Craig Youth Hockey Association.
Nielson encourages people to sign up during set registration times.
"It makes it easier" on everyone, Nielson said.
Estimated ending dates for sign up are Oct. 6 for traveling teams and Nov. 1 for night league players. The association will charge late fees this year for those registering after the set dates.
