2020-2021 Season Registration is Open!

COVID-19 Update and 2020-2021 Season Information

As we launch our Fall Registration, Mounds View Irondale [MVI] Youth Hockey Association wants to share the current landscape for the upcoming 2020-21 Youth Hockey Season.  We remain cautiously optimistic for the return of hockey but in light of the COVID-19 environment, we are asking for your patience and understanding right now.  

We have prepared three scenarios for our season and we cannot predict which is going to happen.  We will follow the guidance and authority of our government as well as USA Hockey, MN Hockey & District 2 Hockey for what is going to be supported. 

Three scenarios:

  • Full Hockey 

  • Shortened Season or Modified Participation

  • No Hockey

We anticipate getting definitive signals about our season over the next 8 weeks.  We are thinking carefully about team size, social distancing protocol within our facilities, as well as our response plan for if/when a COVID-19 infection occurs. 

 The COVID-19 situation evolves nearly every day and recommendations are sometimes conflicting.  While states like Minnesota, our schools, and youth hockey associations like MVI Hockey will carefully craft our best-laid plans, the reality is that new information can quickly change those plans.  You can register with confidence for your skater(s) upcoming season because we are fully prepared for a great season of Mavericks Hockey.  

Rest assured, we will provide refunds if the season is canceled.  Also, if the COVID-19 policies and guidelines that we publish don’t align with the needs of your family, you can expect a refund.  We should know more in the next 8 weeks and we will share it right away.  In the meantime, please do your part by adhering to all published guidelines to increase the chance we have a season of hockey to play - every effort helps.  If you have questions or concerns, I will gladly make myself available.

2020-2021 New Registration/Team Fees

In effort to streamline our registration and collection of team payments this season, we have changed our system.  

Team Payments-Families will register one time for the entire season.  At the time of registration, the only fees that will be collected immediately will be their registration fee and tryout fee (tryout fee-traveling only). However, families will also register for the level of play fee.  The level of play fee will not be collected/charged until October 15th.  Families will have an option of paying one lump sum on October 15th or 5 monthly payments beginning on October 15th. As in the past,  at the end of the season, if your team fees exceed the level of play fee, families will be assessed the difference.  If team fees total less then the level of play fee, families will be refunded the difference.  

Example of hockey fees for 2020-2021 season.

Peewee Level

USA Hockey Registration-$56 per player (exception, birth year 2014 and before).

MVI Registration Fee-$325

MVI Tryout Fee-$75

Peewee level of play-$1550

Tryout Question-This is for players who will be trying out for a traveling team.  You will see a question asking families if their player would like to be considered for an “A” team.  We know there are some families who prefer their son/daughter not to play at that level and would like to give them an option of not being considered.

Jersey Size-MVI is ordering new jerseys this year, in order to make sure we have them in a timely manner we need to get an idea of how many of each size to order.  We will be asking for your jersey size from last season and what you prefer for the 20-21 season.

Players will not be allowed on the ice until all fees have been paid or a payment plan has been set up.

At the time of registration, all outstanding past due accounts must be paid in full. Players will not be able to participate in any MVI events if there is an outstanding prior year balance.

Note: MVI is committed to growing our youth hockey program.  For this to happen, the board has made the decision to have our Mite 2 teams on the ice 1 night during the week in addition to weekends.  This philosophy aligns with many other associations in District 2 Hockey.  We will also encourage our Mite 2 coaches to register for a couple of jamborees’.  In the past, teams would just collect money from parents, we have eliminated that process with implementing a team payment at the Mite 2 level.  When you register, you will see that Mite 2 will now have a separate team payment from the registration fee.  Like our traveling teams, if at the end of the season, teams do not use all their budgeted team fee, money will be reimbursed to families.

The Board establishes the registration fees as part of the annual budgeting process each season. Fees are based on projected operating costs for the upcoming year. All players must be registered with USA Hockey and with MVI prior to taking the ice in MVI sponsored events (warm-up ice, tryouts, practices/training, and games). 

If you have a need for financial assistance please email president@mvihockey.org to request our financial assistance form that will need to be completed.
