Sample Team Budget

1.  The costs outlined in the budget are for team expenses (practice ice, exhibition games, tournament entry fees, team equipment, etc.).  All costs are estimated. The registration payment to SWHA in Aug/Sept covers game ice, league fees, jerseys, Hockey Canada insurance, Hockey Winnipeg fees, etc.

2.  The costs outlined do not include any costs associated with team travel, lodging, meals, entertainment, etc. for out of town tournaments and/or exhibition games.

3.  Managers must submit an expense summary to team at the end of the first half and at year end for review.  For assistance keeping track of team finances, use the Team Finance Template.

4.  SWHA recommends that team expenses do not exceed $900/player, unless there is 100% agreement from the entire team.

It is important to understand that not all parents have the same financial resources. Some parents would rather pay more than fund raise. Some parents have difficulty affording hockey and need to fund raise. It’s unlikely parents will publicly complain about costs in a team meeting – be sensitive to this. Not all parents will have the same commitment level to time and extra practices.
