COST & FEES
Player costs for the 2018-2019 Hershey Jr. Bears Quebec program are paid through corporate sponsorship and fundraising. However, the committee anticipates that a "participation fee" of $150 will be required of all players. This fee includes an off-ice conditioning program run by Hershey Bear’s strength and conditioning coaches. This fee will also defray some of the expenses associated with the "mini camp" weekend.
Since the bulk of team expenses are covered by Corporate donations, and by fundraising efforts of the player’s families, all families are required to participate! The cost of practice and games, jerseys, and team clothing, travel, billeting, meals and entertainment for the players and coaches is completely covered by the team. However, costs for family members to attend the tournament in Quebec City including travel, room and board, entertainment etc. is the responsibility of each family. Usually a “parent’s bus” is arranged by the parents for group transportation.
Additional costs that families typically incur include purchasing of team and individual photographs, buying a gift for the player’s billet family, and contributing toward a team souvenir and season ending party.
