Sharks Ice Adult Hockey League
Oakland Ice Center ([email protected])
The [email protected] charges a per team fee. Each team then determines the individual player cost based on the number of players for their team. There is an Early Bird payment option, in which teams will receive a significant discount if paid in full prior to a predetermined date, generally within the first two weeks from the start of the season.
Each team is responsible for ensuring that their team pays the entire amount and may choose to either pay the team fee in one lump sum, or divide it up amongst individual players. The [email protected] does not determine the amount in which each player owes--that is determined by the team captain(s). At any time a captain may log on to the Captain's Site within Max Galaxy to view a list of payments made for his or her team in order to determine the remaining balance and a list of players who have made payments.
Sharks Ice at Oakland accepts payment via cash, personal check, or credit card (Visa or Mastercard).
We do not accept payments over the phone. Best time to make payments in person is Monday-Friday 9am-4pm.
Any teams failing to meet payment deadlines will be subject to game forfeiture, playoff ineligibility, and/or further disciplinary measures.
