Finding the right equipment can improve comfort, safety and impact how the game is played. It's best to check gear pre-season to see what fits, what needs upkeep and what needs replacing. Budgeting for gear pre-season, allows your child to focus 100% on their game.

Getting up at the crack of dawn for a game or practice makes it difficult to pull together your child, their gear and an appropriate snack or meal. Buying meals or snacks for healthy energy--on the road or at the rink-- should be included in your season budget.

It's a reality that gas or public transit can add significant expense as practice rinks or games aren't always conveniently located in your neighbourhood. Make sure you add in wear and tear to your vehicle, or carpooling expenses for this figure.

The excitement of tournaments can add intensity and focus to your child's game and may even be a requirement to play in a certain league. There may be separate costs per tournament that each family has to pay in addition to their regular registration and league fees.

The expense of hotels and meals out should be included in your planning. Travel is a great social and skill-building opportunity for players, but an expense nonetheless. Tolls, off-ice events, and other small expenses could add up, if not anticipated.

Maybe someone needs to miss a day's work to take a child to a tournament, or your team will have extra practices. Your year may include surprise expenses that should be a part of your budget planning, so you can focus on enjoying everything that makes a hockey season great.

Scotiabank Community Hockey Sponsorship Program

The Community Hockey Sponsorship program has always been Scotiabank's way of showing our commitment to kids' hockey, a sport which unifies our nation, community by community. That's why each of our more than 1,000 branches financially supports a local hockey team, league or association in their community.


We know that being part of a team gives children more than just a chance to play, but also a chance to become involved in their community. That's why we're encouraging our branch staff and sponsored teams to donate their time – the equivalent to one practice – towards making a positive impact in their community. By inspiring and participating in volunteer initiatives, we're committed to help communities get stronger together, like a team. Because that's what Canada is all about.
