Fall Registration is now open

Our fall Registration is now officially open.  With the addition of making registration payments through PayPal this past spring, registration fees can be paid online using the Paypal link. 


REGISTRATION/PAYMENT INFORMATION (REVISED CLUB POLICY):

Eligibility:
For the fall season, all Shawnee students who will be in  9th through 12th grades in September 2017 are eligible to play high school hockey.

Students entering 5th thru 8th grade this September and attending a Shawnee district sending school are eligible to play Middle School.  For middle school, we may also roster out of district players if the town they reside in does not have a middle school team (see next paragraph).  There are 20 games plus playoffs (if eligible), and approximately 23 practices during the fall season.

The Middle School League Commissioner has indicated that they will be enforcing the in-district playing policy, similar to what the high school league does.  If you live in an area that has a middle school team, you will be required to play for that team.   Some high school towns join together to ensure having a complete roster.  An example is HLV which is comprised of players from Holy Cross, Lenape, and Rancocas Valley sending districts.   Riverfront is comprised of players from various towns along the Delaware River.  If a player does not fall into a particular district, we must get approval from the league for that player to play for us.  HLV is also an example of a sending district that does not field middle school teams.  With this, a player from say, Mt. Laurel, would be able to play for our middle school teams.  Goalies are another possible exception as some clubs may end up with too many goalies, while others not enough…similar to what we have experienced at the middle school and high school level the last couple of years. When this happens, a club with too many goalies can approve to release a player to play for a club that is short on goalies  This has to be approved by both teams and the Commissioner.  

For those middle school out of district players who have played with us the last couple of years and do not have an in-district team, please let me know if you would like to continue playing with our club and I will start the process of getting approval from the league for this fall.  I acknowledge that some of you have already contacted me on doing this.

As I mentioned in my email last week, we are instituting a payment schedule for the new season.  The registration has payment due dates that spread out the fall season fees over a 3 month period from today and will ensure that all registration fees are paid before the first practices and games.  We strongly suggest that you make payments when they are due so as not to get to September owing the entire amount. Any player who does not have their registration fees paid by 9/15 will be unable to participate in practices or games.  If any club member wishes to propose an alternate payment plan due to a hardship, this plan must be submitted in writing and approved by the Board. 

The payment schedule is as follows and we are happy to report that the fall fees will be the same amounts that we charged last season>>>

HIGH SCHOOL $1,100:

$100 minimum payment due with registration - no registration accepted without this payment.
$335 due 7/15
$335 due 8/15
$330 due 9/15

MIDDLE SCHOOL $950:
$100 minimum payment due with registration – no registration accepted without this payment.
$285 due 7/15

If you know of anyone that may be interested in playing Ice Hockey for Shawnee in the Fall, please forward my contact information to them or let me know.   

REVISED UNIFORM POLICY:
Parents/Guardians must contact A&S Screen Printing to order uniform items (middle school: white jersey, white socks, & navy shell) (high school: white jersey and blue jersey, white socks and blue socks, navy shell).  Please contact:

This is a great opportunity to have some fun and extended playing time before breaking for the summer.  Our goal is also to give our kids a chance to work together so that once the fall season starts, we’ll be that much more familiar with everyone.  Teams that stay together for multiple seasons generally will play better together the longer they play.  We would like to have as many spring players as possible also play with us in the fall.  We will have a fall tryout in mid-June.

Any questions, please call me at 609-313-0761 or email me at rwesparker@gmail.com
