PRE-SKATES 

Pre-Skates are to allow the players to go through the same drills that they will see at the evaluations. This allows the players to get familiar with the format of the evaluations in a no pressure situation. This is also helps “knock the rust off" for any girls that haven't skated much over the summer. No Evaluators will be present during pre-skates. 

EVALUATIONS 

Evaluations are not Tryouts. Evaluations are a mechanism we utilize to appropriately group players on teams based on their current skill sets. Independent evaluators will be present and evaluating each player in several skill categories to best determine level of play.  They will evaluate players individual skating and puck skills, team concept skills and hockey knowledge. Players are evaluated through a mix of drills & game situations. Promptly following the conclusion of evaluations, we will inform players of their team placement for the season. 

All players should bring a light and dark jersey for evaluations. Preferably a white and a black one. Players will be assigned to wear a light or dark jersey when they arrive each day. Please try to avoid colors that are hard to fit into one category like red, yellow and pink. Please also try to avoid jerseys with the player’s name printed on the jersey or any other identifying information. 

IMPORTANT INFO 

This would be a great time to get your skates sharpened (ideally before pre-skates). Also you should check the rest of your gear to make sure everything is in working order. Specifically check the fit on helmets and make sure your screws are tight and not missing. 

LOCATIONS 

Pre-skates and Evaluations will be held at the St. Louis Ice Zone (the Mills). All regular season ice touches and home games will be at our NEW HOME at the Centene Community Ice Center.

Player Discount Programs 

The St. Louis Lady Cyclones have implemented several new discount policies for the 2019-20 season. Even though players might be eligible for multiple discounts, any given individual player can only realize one discount. Please also note that the following discounts do not apply to any extra fees such as, but not limited to, USA Hockey membership, Team fees, Travel expenses, Club game jerseys & socks (for 10U and above), etc. Please see the details and examples following the discount descriptions. 

Sibling Discount Program: 

If you have more than one player in your immediate family playing on a Lady Cyclones team, you are eligible for a discount on club ice fees for every player playing after the oldest. The oldest player is full price, the second oldest is 30% off and the third oldest and any subsequent younger player is 50% off.  

Goalie Discount Program (NEW THIS SEASON): 

Goalies 10U and older are eligible for a discount equal to half off of their club ice fees. To receive the discount, Goalies will be required to play goal in a minimum number of games and must attend at least 2/3 of the club provided goalie training opportunities. 

Dual Roster Discount Program (NEW THIS SEASON): 

Any Lady Cyclones player that signs up for our program AND a Co-Ed team will be entitled to receive a $200 discount. Proof of registration may be requested to be eligible for this discount.  

Each player gets the greater of the whatever discounts they are eligible for but not more than one per player. 

See examples below: 

Example 1. Oldest player is a goalie, next oldest is a skater, youngest is a goalie. Oldest gets goalie discount (50%), second gets second sibling discount (30%) and youngest gets goalie/third sibling discount (which is the same 50%). 

Example 2. Oldest player is a skater, next oldest is a goalie, youngest is a skater. Oldest pays full price, second gets goalie discount (50%) and youngest gets third sibling discount (50%). 

Please contact Dale Greenbury via email at stlladycyclones@gmail.com or via talk/text at 314-435-6422(before registering), regarding our any of our Discount programs.  

VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENT 

The St. Louis Lady Cyclones are a volunteer run organization. As such, each family is required to give 6 hours of time back to St. Louis Lady Cyclones through volunteering for their player's team or at club wide events.  

• Team Managers and other club designated representatives will track these hours as the season progresses.  

• Families are responsible for reporting any Pre-Season Volunteer Time to their Team Manager. 

• Team Managers will be reporting volunteer time to the Board midseason to ensure each family's obligation is being met. 

You may opt out of these volunteer hours by paying a $150 buyout fee during registration. 

GAME JERSEY & SOCKS 

For our 6U and 8U age groups, the cost of game jerseys & socks is factored into the club fee listed above. This season we are changing the style of the game jerseys, which will require coming to a fitting session to ensure proper sizing is ordered.  

For our 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U and 19U age groups, the cost of game jerseys & game socks IS NOT included in the club fee listed above. Participants will be required to purchase them. You will own them. These are the same style game jerseys & socks that our club has used at this age group for the last several seasons. 

• If you have these items from last season, and it all still fits - then no action is necessary. 

• If you do not have these items OR if they no longer fit, then you will be required to attend one of the scheduled fitting sessions. Please make every effort to attend one of the scheduled fitting sessions.  Failure to do so may result in a delay in receiving your game jerseys and socks.  All scheduled fitting sessions will take place at the Ice Zone and will coincide with the 8U – 12U Pre-Skate and Evaluation dates: 

August 10th: 4pm – 6pm 

August 17th/18th: 2:30pm – 4:30pm 

• Please bring shoulder pads to the fittings to help ensure proper fit. 

JERSEYS/SOCKS COST 

Uniform sets will not cost more than $276.  Pending the results of the club wide survey regarding the third jersey, uniform sets may cost less. 

Full payment is due at time of fittings. You will own these after purchase. It is suggested to buy them a little big in order to get a couple years of use from them. 

JERSEY NUMBERS 

• Odd birth years get odd numbers 

• Even birth years get even numbers 

With the purchase of new uniforms, you will need to select a number for the jersey.  On your order form you will be asked to choose three potential numbers.  Conflicts will be resolved by: 

 1. Seniority with the requested number in the club 

2.  Seniority with the club 

3.  First request via registration 

Keep in mind that there are two types of potential conflicts: within a team and with the team the next level up.  Regarding the latter, as an example, a Squirt 09 chooses the same number as a Peewee 08.  Those two players may be on the same team next season, so one of them will have to buy another jersey set (we can’t change numbers on sublimated jerseys).  We want to avoid this situation and duplicate numbers on the same team, so we will use the criteria above to determine who gets their first choice. In the event that none of your first three choices are available, you will be contacted to resolve the situation. 

 FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITIES TO OFFSET FEES 

Every season the St. Louis Lady Cyclones conduct a fundraiser at the beginning of the year to help players offset the cost of their season’s ice fees. You keep all of the profits from these fundraisers to offset your ice fees. For the last few years we have done a pizza fundraiser. Last season it was TJ’s Pizza and we will continue with that this season also. 

In addition to the TJs Pizza fundraiser, We have implemented a volunteer program at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheater to help offset your fees. Please contact Jennifer Bauer, the concert fundraising coordinator, if you are interested in participating, by e-mail at hockeyconcertvolunteers@gmail.com. Hours Spent volunteering to help offset fees do not count toward your volunteer hours requirement for the club. 

We will continue to explore additional fundraising opportunities to help offset ice fees.
