I've received many great inquiries about equipment renting (and returning) for this upcoming hockey season. We will have two opportunities for those interested to pick up rental equipment. The first will be on Sunday, October 9, from 11am-1pm and the second will be on Monday, October 10, from 6pm-7pm. Both sessions will be in the mezzanine at the Eagles Nest (upstairs behind the glass that overlooks the ice). The cost to rent a bag of equipment will be $50/bag/skater. For those who are participating with Southwest for the first time/year, your $50 is a deposit only and will be refund/returned when you return your bag at the end of the year. Obviously, this is designed as a introductory "perk" to help ease the cost of hockey to new families trying our organization for the first time. For the rest, $50 is a great price to ease the cost of hockey, especially at a young age, when kids grow out of equipment so quickly! It's a win-win for all! We will help make a personalized set of equipment for each skater and size them accordingly when you arrive at one of those sessions.
I do need to emphasis that if your skater has participated with Southwest for a couple years and/or they are trying out for Squirt A/B [not Squirt Rec] or higher, it's time to start buying gear your own. Sorry to be a party pooper, but, we have a great influx of new skaters this year (believe me, I'm getting all the wonderful equipment rental request emails and love to see all the new interest!) and we need to ensure that we can take care of all the new families and allow them an opportunity to maybe introduce hockey to their kids and ease the financial strain to do so.
If you still have equipment from last year and want to extend it another year, please let me know so I can update my records and account for the equipment. If you have equipment and need to return it, please try to get in touch with me so we can make arrangements so I can get the equipment back before Friday, Oct 7 so I can restock it and do any repairs/cleaning. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you and see you at the rink!
Jennifer McCormick will be on hand at the event and this will be a great opportunity for you to kill two birds with one stone. We need to have a copy of each skater's Birth Certificate on file before that skater can take the ice. If you haven't taken care of this yet, feel free to bring a copy to the Rental session and Jennifer will collect them for her/our records.
