  • Via TeamSnap through PayPal - a 2.9% processing fee will be added to the registration fee
  • Interac e-transfer: Please email VancouverRingetteTreasurer@gmail.com. Please include in the comments the name of the child, the parent’s name, and the division that you are registering for.
  • Cheque (postdated cheques can be given at the AGM), or sent to:
Vancouver Ringette Association
866 E. 30 Ave.
Vancouver, BC
V5V 2W1

Goalie Fees:

If players commit to playing goal half time or more in older divisions (U12 to 18+) a rebate equal to half the registration fee will be given at the end of March, 2019.

Families:

For the 3rd (and additional) child in a family, a $50 discount will apply for the 3rd and 4th players.

Late Registration:

Players can register to join Vancouver Ringette Association up until December 31, 2018. The full registration amount must be paid, regardless of the date they start.

Affiliate Fees:

Players are eligible to tryout for the LMRL AA programs starting at the U12 level. At the U12 and U14 level, players who are in the AA program are still expected to play in their house team (in this case, for VRA).

In the U16 and U19 AA level, players are not allowed to play in their house team. However, they still must pay the affiliate fee of $135 to the house association, which covers their insurance fees with BCRA and the LMRL fee.

Financial Hardships:

In the case of financial hardship, there are programs such as Jumpstart and Kidsport available, that will help subsidize the registration fees. These programs require applications, so please be in touch with these organizations and inform the VRA Registrar or the VRA Treasurer if subsidy is needed. In addition, these programs do not cover the entire portion of the registration fee. Families must pay the difference before September 30, 2018, otherwise they will not be allowed on the ice.

In addition to the registration fees, there may be extra fees required throughout the season, as decided upon by the team. Teams may choose to participate in tournaments. These tournaments are not covered in the VRA registration fee. If financial help is needed to pay for these extra-curricular fees, please contact the VRA Registrar or VRA Treasurer.

Refund Policy:

All requests for registration fee refunds must be made in writing by the individual who paid the fees to the attention of the Registrar.

Requests made prior to September 15, 2018 will be granted a full refund less a $25 administrative fee.

Requests made after September 16 will receive a prorated refund based on the remaining season, less $160 (administrative fee + BCRA insurance fee + LMRL fee).

Payment Policy:

Players who have not paid in full by September 30, 2018 will not be permitted on the ice (games or practices) until full payment has been received.
