Volunteers

The Fremont Flyers hockey program depends strongly on its volunteers.  We will be in need of volunteers for teams for the upcoming season.  These duties include- team managers, scoreboard/clock operators, penalty box personnel, Scoresheet volunteers, and more.  We will be sending more information out on these volunteer positions at a later time and briefly talking about these during our parent meeting.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

House Hockey- House Hockey is the base of the Fremont Flyers Hockey program.  Simply put- everyone who wishes to play hockey can play at this level.  There are a variety of skill sets amongst players from very beginner to more proficient.  There are no tryouts.  We encourage players to try different positions and playing time is kept as evenly as possible.  There is one practice per week and from November-February usually one game per week on the weekends.  This is also the most affordable tier of hockey in the program with all players paying one set fee to play and is considered more of a recreational league hockey.  Teams play in the Omaha House League with games being played in Fremont, Omaha, or Lincoln.  There is one end-of-the-season tournament for these players.  Depending on numbers at a given age group there may be one or two house hockey teams with teams being split as evenly as possible. 

Total Number of Players per Team- 12-20

House Hockey Costs for the 22-23 Season- $150 registration fee/ $750 House Fee

 

 

Select Hockey- Select Hockey is one step above House Hockey.  All House Hockey players are evaluated during practices by coaches and the players who have more advanced skills are given the opportunity to participate on a Select Hockey team. Coaches then ask the parents of these players if they are interested in playing on a Select team and teams are made accordingly.  Select players will have the opportunity to participate in one extra “select” practice per week.  Teams participate in the Midwest Hockey Select League and will play in 3 MWHSL tournaments.  Teams from Nebraska, Iowa, and Kansas make up this league.  The three tournament weekends include one local weekend (usually Fremont, Omaha Lincoln, or DesMoines), one cross-over weekend (usually Wichita or KC), and a finals weekend (locations will vary across the Midwest region).  Because of the extra tournaments and extra practice, there is an additional fee to play select hockey.  This fee is determined by the total number of practices and tournaments teams are participating in.  Occasionally, the select teams are able to pick up extra tournaments at the coaches/programs choosing and play in extra friendship games.  All travel costs associated with playing in select hockey are additional costs to the families participating.

Total Number of Players per Team- 12-20

Select Hockey Costs for the 22-23 Season- app. $800 per player (exact costs TBD by 10/15)
