Explanation of Cash & Boat Raffle Tickets

All players will receive cash  raffle tickets in the amount of how much they paid for registration.  These cash raffle tickets will be given to you in the amount of what you paid for each player. Each cash raffle ticket will be $20. For example, a Squirt/10U player, will receive 30 cash raffle tickets at $20 each, which will equal their $600 enrollment fee. If the player/parent sells any or all of these tickets, they keep the money and that help pays for their registration fee!  This gives every player the opportunity to play Grand Rapids hockey at a greatly reduced rate!

(please note: the only fees that CAN NOT be recovered are the ones collected by Minnesota Hockey and USA Hockey)

Each family will also be required to purchase $100 in boat raffle tickets. Every ticket that you sell, the money goes directly back into your pocket.

In order for the registration system to recognize that your family is registering multiple players, please register all of your players at this time.  On the Review Page, there is a link near the bottom to "Register Another Player" - please click on this link to ensure that all of your family's players are registered within the same order. Failure to do so will result in a forfeiture of your family's discounted rates.

Boat Raffle fees must be paid in full at the time of online registration

Cash Raffle, Boat Raffle Ticket Pick Up will be at the IRA Civic Center Sept 19th - 21st, 5pm to 8pm

Brand new players to the association will not forfeit their Cash or Boat Raffle Tickets!!!!!!     It will have you click the button that says you understand the dates and forfeit of tickets, but you will still receive them.
