Season Information:

Q: When do monthly ice bills come out and when are they due?
     A: For Peewee's, Bantams, 12U, 15U, U16 and Jr Gold ice bills will be   sent to the team manager and or team treasurer on the 15th of each month. These bills will be due at the end of that same month. For Squirt's and 10U's ice bills will be sent out to the team manager and or team Treasurer at the end of each month and are due on the 15th of the following month. (Mites are not included in monthly ice bills. Generally Advance and Intermediate mites will see a supplemental ice bill 2 times during the season.)

Q Where do the monthly ice bills go after they have be collected from the parents
    A: The team manager or Treasurer may deposit your teams dues in the PLSHA Treasurer mail box. This mail box is located inside the coaches room in rink 2. All checks should be made out the PLSHA.

Q: What are District 6 dues and when are they billed
    A: District 6 dues are billed to each travel team from squirts thru Jr Gold. These dues cover referees for your league games and your district 6 Playoff ice time/referees/EMT's.  Squirts do not have district playoffs but do have a D-6 Tournament in March. This D-6 tournament will be billed in March separate from your D-6 Dues.  These dues are generally billed to teams in January and can range from $600-$1500 depending on the level. It is highly recommended to collect a little each month from Oct-Jan to offset this 1 time fee. If you would like to know what your D-6 Dues might be for the current season just contact the Ice Scheduler and he will be able to tell you what the past dues were.

Q: When do tournaments get billed
    A: If the tournament was scheduled by the PLSHA tournament coordinator your team will be billed for the tournament the month it is in. Example: if your tournament is January 9th thru 11th you will see this tournament on your January ice bill.

Q: How do I get things added/Changed on our team calendar.
A: All changes/adds/request must go thru the ice scheduler. Once the change as been done the 3 contacts on file for your team will receive an email confirmation. It may take up to 24 hours for that change to appear on the website. (Note the ice scheduler does not see your calendar on your team page!!! There is a separate program used to schedule the ice and that is all uploaded to the PLSHA website) 

-Note for Peewee and above teams. Due to your ice bills coming out on the 15th of each month any swaps/adds that would affect your ice bill should be maybe prior to the 15th. If they are made after the 15th the 2 teams must work out the billing between themselves-
