See below for level guidance.

Regional Choices

With Regional Choices, your team has a way to play more teams while not having to travel too often or too far. You choose how often you’ll play outside of your home location… the more often you play at a regional location, the more teams you’ll face. More scheduling flexibility results in access to more competition. With regional choices, you’ll also have access to regional playoffs for an enhanced competitive experience.

Teams Choose One:

  • Regional Scheduling will have your games scheduled amongst all rinks in your home location’s region but still weighted towards your home location.
  • Home-and Home scheduling will have you play one out of every 4-5 games at locations near your home location and within your region.
  • Opt Out of the home-and-home scheduling and regional scheduling to play exclusively at your home location. However, single location playoffs will only be offered if at least 4 teams also opt-out of regional choices. If single location playoffs cannot be offered, you’re still guaranteed to play the full amount of games in your season.

Please note that the days/times listed above only apply to games at your home rinks. Games that are played within your region have the day/time range of the host rink apply to games scheduled there. Most of the time these days/times are the exact same or very close to those of your home rinks. Please inquire if you have any questions about the potential days/times that your team could have games scheduled under these options.

BYOT Timetable

Below is a timeline summary of what to expect as you get started with BYOT.

Rolling

  • 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.

Pre-season

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.

Mid-season

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.

Post-season

Positive team balances are put towards the next season’s cost or refunded.

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. Please call the league office to discuss leveling. Please note exclusion exceptions may be made on a case by case basis, usually if the experience that would exclude them is a significant amount of time in the past.
