Hockey Tournaments

OK, someone needs to justify “Gate Fees” to us at Playmaker Sports USA LLC… Aren’t hockey tournaments expensive enough for your families?  It seems that “Gate Fees” are a growing trend within the tournament circuit and we don’t understand why teams continue to go to tournaments that charge family members to watch their players compete.  I guess it’s one thing if an association is running a tournament and using the proceeds to fund a scholarship program, but shouldn’t that be clearly addressed on the tournament application?  In 2008, at a tournament in Toronto, I got to the front door of the rink and had to pony up $150 in “Gate Fees” for my family to watch my son compete.  Another Dad on the team and I did a quick calculation and figured that the association collected about $80,000 from “Gate Fees” during the weekend.  You can’t tell me that the $1350 per team tournament entry fee didn’t more than cover the costs of the tournament.

 

Playmaker Sports USA LLC WILL NEVER CHARGE A “GATE FEE” for any of our tournaments or festivals.  We are very good at determining costs and we know that our sport is expensive enough without these additional costs.
