Frequently Asked Questions…

Two weeks in. It is going well. 

Here are some frequently asked questions:

How do I pay for my share of the league?

Each team has a player payment amount. Ask your team manager.

You pay Gears Beer – not the rink.

A payment path is available in the Hockey Community app. Click on your team name and swipe over to the Finance Tab.

Otherwise, write a check to Gears Beer and mail to 9350 Bennett Lake Rd Fenton, MI 48430

I will have a receipt book with me when at the rink for Budtenders games. As long as I don’t jump into another game, I will hang out in parking lot for a few after my game to catch later skaters who want to pay cash.

Do I need USA Hockey registration?


What is the insurance coverage?


By entering the rink you agree to this waiver.

Schedule Set for 2020/21 Season

Eclectic Hockey League (EHL) will have twelve teams, six in each conference. Unfortunately, we only have one sheet to use so a game will be held Saturday 9 pm and then Sunday 9:15 am; 10:30; 11:45; 1 pm; 2:15 pm

Make sure you have a login to Hockey Community. There is a reste password link that expires in 30 min if you wish to reset your password. Team managers will be responsible for checking in players each game and confirming with scorekeepers.

I’m hiring both scorekeepers again to start the season. We will use tablets and enter the scores in HC during the game and cross check the stats. If concerned about stats, have your team manger communicate any updates to your scorekeeper after the game to make sure the calls were accurate.

The 2020 Champs Stanley Pints will be given out on Sunday, Sept. 12th to the Lager and Stout Champs. BC & Frozen.

All Black Hockey Sticks will have a trailer full of $89 Carbon Fiber sticks for sale on Sept. 12th in front of the rink. Please support our sponsor and grab a stick or two! I know many have been asking me for this opportunity. Let’s welcome Larry back to our rink. He also offers fully sublimated jerseys for as low as $35 each through www.JustHockeyJerseys.com Look for a new website in the coming weeks as my team is working on it.

COVID update. If you have any symtoms of a cold, do not enter the rink. IF you have come in contact with someone who has COVID, do not enter the rink. Let’s be smart and safe. 

See you on the ice!

Bylaws – no changes

Ice Time Costs increased for this season by $225 per team and will increase each of the next four years. The cost of hosting two more playoff games in August to finish season is close to the increase. We will forego the balance of the 19/20 season and there won’t be an increase in cost for teams entering the 20/21 season.

The 2020 Stanley Pint Champions are:

BC Heating for the Lager Conference

Frozen Wings for the Stout Conference

Send any team sponsor information to dave@gears.beer for placement on the website. A sponsor form is available to use as you wish. Happy to help you secure those sponsors!

Ice time starting in August will be available for teams to scrimmage or drop in games. Contact Dave or use the Gears Beer Hockey App to join Sunday drop ins. 

We are meeting again on August 16th. In the meantime we will review an optional insurance policy and determine any health and safety protocols. A quote has been requested from K & K Insurance: https://www.kandkinsurance.com/sites/Sports/Pages/Home.aspx
