To be considered for travel a player must participate in 50% of team practices, unless particiaption in other NWC events prevents the player from meeting this requirement.
Adult and Jr players will be asked to support and attend local clinics.
We will practice during the Fall and Winter at Centennial SportsPlex.
Practice begins in August and will run through the Disabled Hockey Festival in April.
Players are expected to arrive at 30 minutes prior to the beginning of practice so that we SPEND THE ENTIRE HOUR ON THE ICE, not getting in our sleds and equipment.
Adult players are responsible for creating a safe and encouraging atmosphere at practice since our Adult team will share ice time with our Jr team.
Sleds, uniforms and equipment will be provided for our Jr players, but remain the property of the National Wheelcats, Inc. Sleds and uniforms (and donated equipment if available) are provided to Adult team members, but remain the property of the National Wheelcats, Inc.
Team Sled Preds uniforms will be provided for each player.
Tournaments and travel
The Adult and Jr team will travel to at least two tournaments each for the 2014-2015 season, culminating in the Disabled Hockey Festival in April.
The National Wheelcats will pay travel expenses for one parent or approved chaperon, if necessary, who accompany Jr players.
All players or parents are responsible for presenting receipts (gas, car rental, etc...) to the sport director, Troy Weise, within two weeks of the sponsored event for reimbursement. Dates on the receipts must correspond with dates of the sponsored event.
Flight travel and hotel arrangements will be made by the sport director.
Athletes are expected to represent the National Wheelcats in a positive and mature manner. Missing tournament games, without a justifiable illness, will not be tolerated and future travel may not be granted.
Illegal activity is not allowed on any NWC sponsored travel.
Mileage will be paid per 2 players per 1 vehicle (when possible) for each tournament.
Athletes will be held accountable financially for flights that they miss or trips they may cancel unless there is a reasonable explanation presented to the National Wheelcats, Inc. Board.
Treat your teammates, coaches, sport directors and volunteers with respect. Disrespect or detrimental behavior to others will not be tolerated and will be handled accordingly by the coach, sport director and/or board of directors.
