  • Coaches who cancel their slot after the schedule has been sent out on Thursdays will be charged a $100 cancellation fee. **However, coaches may find their own replacement for their spot at no charge; the cancellation fee only applies if the slot goes unused.
  • The stick time online calendar has sessions posted anywhere from 2-6 weeks ahead depending what time of the month you are looking at it. We’ll continue to label reserved stick times as CLOSED stick times which allows all 6 zones to be utilized by Rinks, Jr Ducks, and Lady Ducks coaches.
