4 days left for COOKIE DOUGH orders!!

By Sno-King Staff 02/11/2021, 6:45am PST

Sno-King Families,

With 4 days left in our Cookie Dough Fundraiser, our online orders are coming in STRONG with over 350 orders already placed! We are excited to see the collected TEAM ORDERS as they start rolling in at the end of the week. We have already reached 20% of our $20,000 fundraising goal so let’s keep the momentum going with online posts, sharing on neighborhood pages or some friendly Facetime calls to family or friends. Did you know that if each of our youth hockey players sold only 4 tubs we would be able to reach our fundraising goal? This is definitely attainable with everyone’s help! 

KUDOS to these teams at the top of the leaderboard for ONLINE ORDERS:

  1. 8U Minor Green
  2. 12U A3 Tuttle
  3. 14U A3 Stillwell
  4. 10U C Ort
  5. 12U C Trotter

All 3 lb. tubs of Cougar Mountain Premium Cookie Dough sell for just $17 each and make 4 dozen cookies. Online orders can be placed HERE or you can submit through your Team Manager.

ORDER DEADLINE: The last day for ONLINE or TEAM ORDERS is Sunday, February 14th. Order forms and brochures can be printed HERE.  Please contact your Team Manager for the best way to submit your players orders.  We have also received several questions about providing an equivalent cash donation instead of buying cookie dough so thought it might be helpful to share. An equivalent donation in lieu of cookie dough sales (goal of 4 tubs per player) would be roughly $35. Donations can be made at www.snokinghockey.com/donate.  Thank you! 

ORDER PICKUP: Order processing and delivery is expected to take 2-3 weeks. All orders will be scheduled for pickup at the rink of your choice.  We will share more details once our Sno-King order is ready.

Thank you for your support! If you have any questions please reach out to one of our fabulous parent volunteers.

By Sno-King Staff 02/02/2021, 6:30pm PST

Sno-King Families,

This important update includes new information relevant to Sno-King’s Amateur Youth Hockey season. Please take the time to review carefully. Our Sno-King staff and coaches have been actively working to adjust to several new Phase 2 Healthy Washington updates. This includes building new ice schedules for all three facilities beginning Monday, February 8 with increased capacity along with adjusting for league games and the addition of our Sno-King Adult Hockey League (SKAHL) restarting soon. We also are working diligently to update important rink signage, training staff and continue to focus on reinforcing safety protocol to keep our skaters and families safe at all times.

Included below is information related to practice schedules, league game schedules, tentative playoff dates, end of season timing, preparation for home/away games and volunteer roles and training.

Practice Schedules: 

  • Beginning Monday, February 8, there will be a revised practice schedule for all teams. Staff is working closely with coaches and we expect these updates to be updated in Sports Engine tonight. Please note that several teams will now be sharing ice slots due to the Phase 2 occupancy guidelines.
     

Game Schedules:

  • There are scheduled games for some teams beginning THIS weekend Feb 6-7. Due to the fast paced turnaround in league planning, the MHL and PNAHA leagues are actively scheduling for all associations. Coaches and Sports Engine will be updated accordingly with new games to be added over the coming days/week. We hope to have a 2-4 week advance schedule posted soon.
  • Please keep in mind that similar to prior years, 10U-18U league games are scheduled on a bi-weekly rotation where one weekend are HOME games and the following weekend will be AWAY games. If you are unsure of which league your team is playing in this year, please check with your coach.  
  • Any teams that would have been playing in PCAHA this year will now be scheduled in the PNAHA league. More details will be shared with your coach as schedules get built.
  • All MHL games will have Referee’s automatically scheduled (except 8U) including this weekend’s games
  • Any PNAHA or exhibition games needing Referees will need to be coordinated by the Coach/Team Manager with Andrew Birnbrich (Andrew@snokinghockey.com)

 

COVID-19 rink protocol for AWAY games:

  • Each rink has their own safety protocols that must be followed. Please be respectful of differing guidelines and visit rink websites for more information.
  • All rinks require being fully dressed (except skates) in all equipment upon arrival. There will be an designated SKATES ON/OFF area if needed. 
  • Masks will be required at all times on and off the ice (Please ensure you have an approved mask for game play. If unsure, we suggest bringing a backup)
  • All locker rooms will be closed in all rinks for youth hockey games
  • Some associations are handing out wrist bands to teams for spectators/guardians
  • The only volunteer role needed for away games is the Penalty box

 

Volunteers required for HOME games:
