FEE DESCRIPTIONS

Player Registration (Association) Fee

Player Registration or Association Fees are the amount paid to DJHA for making the team, which generally covers expenses that include, but are not limited to: practice ice, practice jerseys, home games, coach salaries, league fees, officials, scorekeepers, etc. Player Registration fees do not cover additional items such as team fees, additional off-ice training, uniforms, apparel & spirit wear items, player/family travel, etc. 

APPAREL FEE

Apparel Fees are the amount paid to DJHA's vendor to purchase all required uniform items. For example, but not limited to, jerseys, breezer, breezer shells, socks, helmets, gloves, bags, warmups, workout clothes or items, and any other item required to be purchased through DJHA  or its designated vendor.

NOTE: Required Apparel Fee may be lower for returning players who choose to use gear from previous season, or higher if additional apparel items are required. Also, the Apparel Fee includes estimated Sales Tax & Shipping. Sales Tax is mandatory but players may choose a "Will Call" option to avoid shipping costs.

TEAM FEE

Team fees are amounts paid to the team for any items not covered by the Association fee, including, but not limited to, coach or team official travel, tournament fees, team equipment, additional ice purchases, and team parties or functions.

ADDITIONAL TRAINING FEE

Additional Training fees are any amounts paid to the team or to a third-party for any additional ice, on-ice instruction, or off-ice training.

PLAYER TRAVEL FEE

Any amount a family is required to pay to to cover a player’s travel costs. In most cases, player travel is covered by each family, separately from the Team Fees; However, the 18U team includes player hotel rooms and team meals in their Team Fees. Out-of-Town Tournaments are determined by the Coach and team once practices begin and after initial team meeting. DSTHL travel is determined post-scheduling meeting in September, prior to the start of the Regular Season.

NOTE: DJHA offers Association & Team fundraising opportunities throughout the season, one of which is designed specifically for the benefit of each of our Dallas Penguins teams and their players/families to help offset cost associated with Team Fees, Additional Training Fees, and Player Travel Fees.

Travis Stryker Memorial Scholarship

In November of 2014, and as a way of honoring Travis and the Stryker Family, the DJHA Board of Directors voted on and agreed to a proposal to rename the existing scholarship fund in Travis’ name. The Travis Stryker Memorial Scholarship will continue to help cover a portion of the hockey related costs for families that meet financial requirements and players that meet specific academic and community service requirements.

Each season, DJHA makes a limited number of scholarship opportunities available to players who might otherwise not be able to participate in travel hockey.  Selection of players for this financial assistance is based on financial need, academic performance in school and involvement in school and community activities.  Scholarships will be awarded in accordance with DJHA and DSTHL policies.

2018-2019 Travis Stryker Memorial Scholarship Application Submission Deadline:

JULY 15, 2018

In the event you have a legitimate need for financial assistance, please read the Travis Stryker Memorial Scholarship Guidelines carefully and complete the included application.  All information required must be provided before any application will be considered.

SCHOLARSHIP GUIDELINES

  • Scholarships will be awarded on an objective and nondiscriminatory basis. Any applicant with a combined adjusted gross income (typically shown on the bottom line of page one of IRS Form 1040) of $100,000 or more will not qualify for a scholarship award.
     
  • A complete application* must be submitted electronically online on or before the specified deadline. The required $1,500 Registration Deposit Fee must be paid at contract offer acceptance to be eligible for the Travis Stryker Memorial Scholarship.
