General Information About Inline Hockey - FAQs

The cost of inline hockey is generally much different and less than ice hockey. The PIRHL Fall Season overall cost includes: 

 

  • MLIHA Registration Fee: Pricing found here
    This fee is to cover rink rental time at player evaluations and to cover our practice and instructional  rink time. The primary goal of evaluations is to place players on the appropriate teams based on skill level. The need to cut players is determined by how many players sign up in each division. 
     

  • Player/League Fees: Pricing found here
    This fee covers the team’s league entry fee (16 games plus playoffs with referees) and additional rink rental fees for practices. The season runs from October through March. The exact league fee can vary each year, depending on costs and fundraising success.
     

  • Goalies: 
    A discount on league fees is available for goalies.
     

  • Families: 
    Families with more than one player also receive a discount.
     

  • Uniforms Fee:
    Uniforms will be a separate cost starting in 2017-2018.
     

  • New players must purchase uniforms.
    Based on availability, the league attempts to keep the
    same uniforms every 3 years  – allowing returning players
    to wear the same uniforms as last year to avoid this
    expense. Uniforms are subject to change every 3 years.
    Players can purchase a new uniform at anytime if they
    have outgrown their current one.  

 

  • AAU Membership (Player Insurance)
    Each player and coach must be an AAU member. AAU membership cost varies, but it is currently $16 per year for players. The “added benefit” membership is not necessary, but you should read the information and decide based upon your own situation. The association currently includes this membership in the player/league fees.
     

  • Ages
    The number of teams will be determined by how many players register. The PIRHL has four divisions, based on grade level: Grade 6 is considered a floating grade.  They can play Elementary or Middle School but not both.

    • Elementary: Grades 3, 4, 5 & 6
    • Middle School: Grades 6, 7 & 8
    • Junior Varsity: Grades 9 through 12
    • Varsity: Grades 9 through 12

    Each division is divided into tiers to maximize competitive balance​
