The following information is provided by the Ventura Mariners Ice hockey teams, a youth hockey association herein referred to as the “Club”, the Thunder Youth Hockey Club  501-3-C and Iceoplex –Simi Valley (Tier 2, and A/B teams).

General Information

This program guide is for the governing of the Club at the Tier II level. Anything not specifically explained in this program guide will be governed by the decisions of the Clubs Executive committee. Nothing contained in this program guide shall be construed to create a contract or agreement that would limit the exercise of discretion by the Club.

The club is currently a member in good standing of the SCAHA, CAHA, USA Hockey.

Games and Practices

All players are expected to participate in all Club and team activities, including games, practices, tournaments, and meetings and team functions.  Players will not pick and choose among Club and team events and full participation is required unless the player is physically unable to participate and the coaches have approved special arrangements.

Tournaments and Travel

2 “local” driving distance tournaments (which may include Phoenix and/or San Jose)

1 “fly-away” tournament

The coaches and Mariners executive committee makes final decisions regarding the Tournaments the team will attend.

All players on all teams are expected to be in the proper places at the proper times.  Any player leaving the group or hotel for any reason (even if with parent or relative) must check out and back in with a coaching staff member.  If a problem arises, you must inform your coach immediately.  Players are responsible for their own luggage and equipment.  Any damage to hotel rooms will be charged to all players registered to that room unless one or more players come forward to accept responsibility. All team personnel will wear uniformed team attire when attending games or traveling for tournaments.  Team management will advise the players as to appropriate dress.

(Tournaments and Travel cont’d)

Parents are responsible for their own children for all games and tournaments, whether local or out-of-state. Should the occasion arise that a parent sends their child with another family the following must be adhered to:

 

·       Hotel costs- divide total cost between the # of players not total # of people in the room

·       Gas- divide by # of players in car, this includes local travel for weekend games, gas is calculated at .25/mi.

·       Car rental- divide total cost by # of players in car

·       Food Stipend- $30/day- give to host parent PRIOR to the trip

·       Parents will provide transportation for their child to pick-up/ drop-off location decided on by the host family at a designated time.  The host will not drive around picking up other children.

·       Players may not room with a coach (unless the child is the coach’s own child) per safe-sport guidelines

 

School Work and Absences           

Schoolwork and academic studies are absolutely essential for players hoping to be strong candidates for Junior and college programs.  Players must be sure that they are attending to the demands of your school and your teachers.  The program’s academic expectations are that each player maintains at least a “C” (2.0) average in all coursework and that players at no time carry an ”F” in any subject.  If players are not meeting this standard they may be suspended from team activities until these standards are restored, or if problems persist the player may be released from the program and no refund will be given. 

High School student/athletes must be taking and passing sufficient units to complete each school year during the regular school year. It is an NCAA requirement that a 4-year High School graduation degree be completed in 4 years, AND the “core” NCAA classes must also be completed during those 4 years. NCAA “core” classes are not necessarily the same classes as those needed for high school graduation.  Check www.ncaaclearinghouse.com for specific details.

Players, it is imperative to communicate with your parents and hockey staff if you are struggling with a certain subject or teacher so that the problem can be addressed before it becomes an issue that requires academic suspension.

No player will be permitted to practice or play hockey on a day when they were unable to attend classes.  If a player is sick, or suspended for any reason, they will miss that day’s hockey commitment as well.  Players should consider this before deciding to stay home from school.

The travel schedule may require the player to miss 5-10 days of school during the year.  It is the player’s responsibility to follow your school’s procedure to qualify these absences as “excused”.  At most schools this means that players must get a form from the guidance or attendance office, have each of teachers sign the form, and return it to the guidance or attendance office 5 SCHOOL DAYS PRIOR TO THE FIRST DAY OF THE ABSENCE.  Players should also be sure to know what work would need to be completed on the road or made up upon return.

Player Equipment / Apparel

Team apparel must be purchased by the player; Game and practice Jerseys, workout apparel, warm ups, socks, shells, hockey gear.

Jersey Numbers Choices- tie-breakers for 2 or more players wanting the same number

  1. Veteran player returning to same team- i.e.- 2nd year Bantam A
  2. Total # of years with the Mariners/Titans travel organization, (not in-house)
  3. Name draw from a “hat”

Note: If your player did not attend tryouts for this session and submit a number during tryouts.  Other players will NOT be required to “give up” their number, for a late add player.

Team Apparel fittings must be done at the tryout “team meeting”. If you miss this fitting opportunity it is your responsibility to go to – LD&C Sports (located in the rink) to be fitted within 2 days of the completion of tryouts.

All Players MUST have solid black gloves, and a black helmet with the approved HECC/ SA stickers visible and readable. NO part of the helmet/ cage may be removed and must be worn as designed.  Mouth guards are required on the ice.

Locker rooms and Facilities

All players are expected to keep the Goal line fitness conditioning facility in good clean condition, water ONLY, is allowed in the weight training facility, no food or sports drinks.

All players are expected to respect the facility, staff, and to clean up after themselves. This includes both the showers and locker rooms at any home or away facility.  Should any player(s) or any team(s) willfully damage any property or equipment of any person or rink, all costs for repairs and/or replacement will be borne by the guilty parties. Should the guilty party not be known the entire team will be held responsible. This also includes hotel rooms and property. Anyone who is involved with damaging or defacing rink or hotel property (home or away) will be suspended indefinitely pending a hearing with the club.

In accordance with USA Hockey “safe sport policies”, a “CAHA screened” locker room attendant must supervise the locker room.  Players may not utilize the locker facilities in preparation for practices and games without the locker room attendant present.  Any player found in violation (i.e. inside the locker room without an attendant will be fined $10 per violation). Players who do not follow the locker room policies may lose their privilege to utilize the locker room facilities.

Iceoplex Simi Valley provides a separate female locker room for girls/ladies to dress. (for both Mariner and away teams) Once they are dressed to the appropriate minimal attire, they may join their team for pregame/practice talks. There must be a parent or screened safe sport representative for each locker room. Ventura Mariners abide by the USA hockey safe sport rules. (revised 8/1/16) Due to completion of room.

Insurance Information

All players will have “secondary” insurance through USA Hockey.  If you wish more information, or need to file a claim, contact the Club Registrar. It is recommended that you carry your own, private medical insurance, as USA Hockey insurance (through K & K insurance) is a secondary payer for major injuries during hockey games and practices and is not a regular day-to-day type medical insurance.

The Club will not pro-rate a refund for any portion of the total season dues (including both club and team dues) except in the following cases: 1) the player is accepted onto the Mariners Bantam AA, 16AA or 18AA, 2) the player is cut by the A/B team to a lower division within the Mariners Hockey Club. This does not include players who choose to leave the team/ club on their own for any reason.  Players who choose to leave the team/ club on their own are responsible for the FULL season, club AND team dues.  Only in the two occurrences listed above, will the Club consider pro-rating a partial refund. If approved, the pro-rated amount will be credited to your dues for the team you are moving to. There will be NO prorated amount due to injury on or off the ice.

Team dues will not be pro-rated or returned for players who do not attend the (3) tournaments listed in “travel” above. Should a team choose a 4th tournament and a player chooses not to attend, they will not be liable for the expenses of that tournament providing that the decision not to attend has been communicated to the coaches and team manager prior to the team fees being set.  Should they choose not to attend after the “team fees” for that tournament have been set, they will be required to pay their portion.

Any player suspended for disciplinary/ academic reasons will be responsible for the full amount of the season dues.

Deposit- Non-refundable after signing (all players)

“Releases / Free and Clears” will not be granted unless all fees, both club and team are paid

Delinquencies

Any player who is delinquent from any fees, will be placed on the USA Hockey delinquency list and, according to USA Hockey rules, that player and any additional players from that family will be precluded from all future hockey activities including tournaments and tryouts at any USA Hockey participating club until the delinquency is cleared.  Releases from the Titans Hockey Club will not be granted until the player has met all team/club financial responsibilities. This includes any player on an extended payment plan.
