Full Season Registration Discounts

 

These Discounts only apply to full season registrations.

 

Families taking advantage of the special fee for New Players (8U- through 12U-level players) will be eligible to receive only one discount (that is, the New Player discount will be applied in lieu of the Sibling discount if the new player is registered first as instructed below).

 

"New Player" Discount Fee ($50)*

Any player who is new to PYHA and registering for a full season as either a 12U, 10U, or 8U is entitled to register at a one-time lower rate.  If you are registering both new and returning players, register the new player as the 1st player for this discount to work.

 

Sibling Discount ($25)*

If you are registering more than one youth player in your immediate family this season, your family can receive a $25 discount on the full season registration fee for the second (and any additional) child(ren). This discount does not apply to the first player registering in a family, new players, or players in the 6U division.

 

In order for the registration system to recognize that your family is registering multiple players:

  • please register all of your players at the same time, registering new players first. 
  • On the Review Page, there is a link near the bottom to "Register Another Player;" please click on this link to ensure that all of your family's players are registered within the same session. 
  • Failure to do so will result in a forfeiture of the discount.

 

*Due to already low registration fees, discounts do not apply to 6U players.

 

Special Circumstances - Accommodations Must be Requested Before Registration

STOP! If you need another payment option, please email palousehockey@gmail.com or registrar.pyha@gmail.com AND RECEIVE A REPLY BEFORE YOU REGISTER WITH PYHA.  Thank you!

League Service - Update for the 2021 -2022 Season

Volunteerism remains critical to the functioning of Palouse Youth Hockey and helps keep costs down while supporting our programs.  PYHA is re-instituting the League Service requirement for the 2021-2022 season with a 10 hour requirement for families with players 8U and up.  The buyout for the 2021 -2022 season is $150 per family, payable in full with registration if this option is selected.   PYHA does encourage families to support our programs in whatever way you are able during this season and to recognize that our coaches, managers, board members, and others are continuing to volunteer their time so PYHA has a successful season.  


Gear Rental for 6U, 8U, and 10U Players

Hockey equipment is available to borrow for the season on a first-come, first-served basis for $40.28 (tax included). For more information, please read the Gear Rental Agreement below.
