MAC – NMHockey News
Information posted to NMHockey website for 2017 Spring MAC season.
We would like to start the new season around the second week of January and run the season for 20 weeks. There would be 16 regular season games with a 3 week round-robin with a final week championship and consolation game. Everyone get the same number of games. The schedule would remain the same. The intermediate-advanced group would stay on Tuesdays and the beginner-intermediate would stay on Thursdays. The times would also be the same, but will likely shift to an hour earlier once youth hockey finishes up.
We would like to keep the core of the current teams together, but tweak them a little to better balance them out.
As previously mentioned, we eventually need to get the skater fees to around $20-$21 per game (half that for goalies). Providing there are no unexpected cost increases to ice or referees, we will continue to slowly increase fees over the next year. The cost for the 20 week season would be $380 or… $19 per game. This can be split into 2 payments of $190 if desired. We understand finances may be tight during the holidays, so if you need to break payments up into 4 payments that can be arranged. Just talk to me in advance and we can discuss terms of payment. There will still be a PayPal option, but I can no longer float the fees. (The cost would be $392 for the full season payment via PayPal.) Players who’s skill level permits them to play in the leagues on both Tuesday and Thursday will be given a $40 multi-league discount.
We would like to start signing players up in a couple weeks and have 40 skaters and 4 goalies on Tuesdays and Thursdays signed up by the first week of January.
BTW – To show my appreciation to all of you that sign up for the first official season, I am having some “MAC 88” patches made to recognize the original 88 members to the MAC league.
More to come soon!
All remaining league fees are due today for the abbreviated season. If the balance is something different than the available PayPal options below, please use the option that is greater than the balance. I will refund the difference via PayPal.
