Cupertino Cougars 2021-22 Hockey Season
The Cougars are pleased to announce program information for the Cougars 2021-22 hockey
season! Some important information is below regarding this season's Travel
program. Other links are available for the program structure and the tryouts.
Frequently check back to the Cougars website for any new information.
Cougars Travel Program
The Cupertino Cougars travel hockey program strives to provide players the opportunity to
play at the elite levels of hockey with an emphasis on learning the game. The program,
directed by the Ice Center of Cupertino, stresses the
importance of having fun, learning the game, playing with good sportsmanship, and winning and
losing with pride and dignity.
There are requirements from NORCAL on Rules and Regulations
for players AND for parents. Please review this before committing to our program, as the
Cougars will strictly enforce it. Reimbursement of club costs will not be issued for
players or parents as the result of disciplinary action taken by the Cougars Hockey Club or
any of the governing bodies.
Cougars 2021/2022 Season Announcement
If you already have a Pay Pal account, setting up
payments will be very quick.
Every season, we evaluate what it costs to operate the
Cougars organization and see where we can
generate some savings. We do this so that we can
minimize the price we have to charge to the
individual Cougars players for the season.
This season, we will offer dryland training in the Vallco Shopping
Center, a short walk from the rink, in a 4,000 sq. ft. indoor facility.
The fees for team dryland training, twice per week,
are included in the team fees listed below.
We will also offer private or semi-private training with our
instructors in addition to the team training for an additional fee.
The facility will open in mid-September.
The Hockey X-Training facility consists of synthetic ice
surfaces for shooting, bungee power skating and goalie training.
The facility will also have training tools and areas for speed,
core, strength and conditioning.
As we did in the past, we are offering a payment plan
to be paid over five payments for the 8U players, and over seven payments for the 10U - 16U players.
Payment dates are on Commitment Day
(the day a player signs the Commitment Form to play
for the Cougars): June, July, August, September, October, and November.
We are using the safe and secure Pay Pal mechanism as our credit card processor,
allowing us to offer families the ability
to make their payment securely online.
The payment buttons, for either full payment or the
payment plan, are located on the Cougars web site,
and can be accessed from each team's home page:
If you don't have a
Pay Pal account, it will take a few minutes to set it up,
but you only have to do it once.
We accept most major
credit cards through Pay Pal.
The Ice Center of Cupertino is now equipped
with a secure public WiFi network, so you can
set up your payments right from the rink once you have signed the
Commitment Form upon placement on a Cougars team.
The processor will automatically notify, via email, the card holder
if there are any issues with the payment.
The fees for the 2021-22 Cougars Norcal travel season (includes Dryland Training) are:
- 8U Team: $1899 or 5 Monthly Payments of $380
- 10U through 16U Teams: $3499 or 7 Monthly Payments of $500
The team fees include the usual weekly practices, except during Holiday weeks, throughout the season, including the
Norcal Playoffs, for all Cougars teams. The Practice Schedule will document the days and times of those practices. For
teams that go to the CAHA Playoffs and beyond, we will offer additional practices at no additional charge. We will also
include a minimum of two weekend practice slots during the season for each team which can be used for additional
practices or exhibition games.
