Our registration NON refundable deposit is $250 for the Hockey Academy. This covers your registration and commitment fee. This goes toward total tuition.
The waiting pool protocol to get into an MEI School: Normal MEI policy – siblings, supporting church members, and then open to all others including Hockey Academy players. Hockey Academy takes all MEI full time students first, then wait-pool students, followed by Non-MEI players.
All Non-MEI players will be allowed into the Hockey Academy at an additional admin fee of $250 above the regular Hockey Academy program rate.
If an MEI grade is full but the player wants to participate in the Hockey Academy the student will be put in the wait pool for MEI but will still be able to attend the Hockey Academy if there is room.
If a student enters the Hockey Academy part way through year, the tuition is equal to the pro-rated cost for the balance of the year, calculated on a per month basis. Players must still pay the full $250 non-refundable registration fee that goes toward overall program costs at the time of registration.
If a player is injured and must sit out more than 3 months (12 weeks) they will receive a full refund of tuition fees beyond the 3 months. Payment of tuition fees resumes if and when the player returns to the Hockey Academy.
If a player is injured and must sit out the rest of year the player will be refunded the balance remaining; however, the initial deposit is non-refundable. A signed doctor’s note must accompany a request for reimbursement due to injury.
All players must keep MEI School accounts up to date as a condition of on-going participation in the Hockey Academy.
Any player that is enrolled in the MEI Schools Tuition Assistance plan will not be accepted in the Hockey Academy.
Some players prefer to be part of the Hockey Academy as a full time MEI students but on a part time participation basis in the Hockey Academy due to busy schedules, other commitments, and conflicting priorities. This would not be offered for Intro or High School players. Grade 3-8 students are allowed to attend the academy part time (one ice per week) at a slight discount. Part time cost is $1,750. $250 Reg fee plus $150/month for 10 months.
