Thank you for your continued support of SGMHA.
For the first time since amalgamation, SGMHA rates are being increased 15% this year over last year. As we have not raised rates the past 3 years, SGMHA has been running at a deficit - something we were able to do because both groups brought some reserves to SGMHA. It is not, however, possible or responsible to continue diminishing our reserves indefinitely, and so we are forced to raise rates. Even with this 15% increase, we are still budgeting a deficit of $10,000 for the 2023-2024 season. The SGMHA Executive is committed to looking for creative ways to keep rates low in the future, and we welcome our Members to sign up to fundraising teams and endeavors. We are committed to get to a break-even by our 2024-2025 budget, and so future increases may be necessary.  We also anticipate increases to ice rates in the coming seasons. The good news is that market analysis suggests that our program, and especially our rep program, is still competitively priced relative to other centres. As such, our 2023-2024 rates are increasing 15%, and we will maintain the $100 lotto with a maximum of $200 per family.
In order to facilitate our volunteer group with setting the teams, booking ice, and arranging for coaches, managers and equipment, we would appreciate registrations by August 1. Registrations after August 1 may be subject to a late fee.
Rep tryouts will be held in September. Players must be fully registered, with fees paid, to participate in tryouts. A skater not making the rep team and being placed on the local league team is not considered a reason for a refund. Refunds for other reasons may be made on a case-by-case basis.
We look forward to seeing your child on the ice for our 2023-2024 season. Thank you,
SGMHA Executive
