Where do my dues go?

While the Junior Canes are a 501c3 not-for-profit organization, we understand that this doesn't mean it's not a huge financial commitment to play travel hockey.

With nearly 60% of all expenses going to cover the expense of renting ice for practices and games and $0.89 of every dollar going directly to instruction and competition, our promise to our membership is twofold:

  • We are committed to providing the highest possible value by delivering an experience that makes youth hockey worth the commitment
  • We are committed to full transparency to create trust and ease of mind

On average, each hour of professionally led instruction costs around $28, which is the cost of two stick-and-puck open sessions at any area rink.

  • 58% - Facilities: includes ice rentals for practices, player development sessions & games
  • 15% - Coaches: includes stipends to cover coach travel, USA Hockey licensing and education & background checks
  • 13% - Competitions: includes tournament fees, league dues, and referees
  • 11% - Operations: the overhead of running the business
  • 3% - Equipment: pucks, coaching bags, practice jerseys & socks, etc.
