Below is a timeline summary of what to expect as you get started with BYOT.
- Register your team with no deposit necessary from the captain.
- Within 3 business days of registration (or when your league’s details are finalized) – The captain will be emailed a unique team registration URL to provide their players in order to register for the team’s roster.
- To secure the team’s spot, there must have at least 4 paying players registered within 7 days. Paying players are those who are going to split the team’s overall cost and place a $100 deposit at the time of registration.
Before Your Team's First Game
Players register with a $100 deposit as paying players, who share in the team’s cost, or with a $20 registration fee for those who will be non-paying alternates.
The season schedule is posted. If any dates/times are pending with the rink those games will be posted as soon as we have scheduling commitments. The last 2 weeks are always held for playoffs.
At the Beginning of the Season
The team’s payment is split between the amount of paying players, those who registered with a $100 deposit. Each paying player’s amount due is that amount less their $100 deposit. They can elect to pay in full or spread the balance over the course of the season on a payment plan. Final payments or enrollment in the payment plan is required wit
Within 10 Days of Payment Split
All paying players must pay their individual balance in full or select a payment plan within 10 days of when they are notified of their amount due. Anyone paying after this time is subject to a $20 late fee and is subject from removal from their team’s roster until payment is made.
New paying players can be added, or converted from alternate status, with their cost being prorated. Players joining late incur a $20 registration fee. The complete amount of their payment is credited to the team’s account. Any full time (paying) skaters or alternate (non-paying) skaters returning from a prior season on the same team must be added by noon on the business day prior to the game in which they wish to start to guarantee that they will be rostered. For weekend or Monday games, that translates to Fridays at 12PM. New alternates (non-paying skaters) must be added five (5) days prior to the game in which they wish to start. Goalies are the only players who are eligible immediately after submitting their registration online and e-signing their waiver. They do not require further confirmation, the captain simply has to notify the league office of their goalie’s registration.
Any paying player whose payment plan payment cannot be collected after 14 days has that payment returned to team responsibility. That amount is debited from the team’s account and, in the case of a negative team balance, must be paid before the team’s next game.
4-6 Weeks Before Season End
Teams are given the first right to renewal for the next season, restarting this timeline for the next season.
Positive team balances are put towards the next season’s cost or refunded.
BYOT Level Guidance
We work closely with captains to ensure that the teams are being formed in an equitable way that will ensure balance, which is a vital part of the StinkySocks Hockey experience. All players must individually qualify for their team’s chosen level. If you have any questions regarding leveling we invite you to call the league office to discuss leveling.
