How to Pay Fees, 50% off 1st Year and Scholarship Programs
Hi Generals Families - 
We've fielded some questions about fees and how to pay them recently. Since the season is just getting started and we have a good number of new-to-NIHA families, I want to explain a couple programs to everyone and communicate how to pay your balances. I will also post this information on the website for you to reference in the future.
How do I Pay: You can choose to pay directly through our website, drop a check off at the rink or by using PayPal. All house fees are due by Oct 31. If you want to set up a payment plan, please contact us and we can discuss.
  • Directly through the website: Simply sign into your account, then click "My Account" at the top of the page. Here you will see your registered programs and the balance due. If you scroll to the bottom, you will see a green "Pay Now" button, then proceed to check out.
  • Drop a check off: NIHA has a locked mailbox in the pro shop. You can pay either by check or cash this way. Please write your players name & team on the envelope and seal it. Ask any of the rink employees in the pro shop where the mailbox is and they will assist you. 
  • PayPal: You can also pay your balance directly through PayPal. Simply click this link and continue to log into PayPal.
The programs outlined below are all available to us because of the generosity of the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation, which is a fantastic partner of our league.
50% Off First Year: All first-year players who are new to hockey (never registered with USA Hockey) receive 50% off their fees in their first season. If you've already paid your players fee in full, please email me your player's name & team level. I will refund 50%. If you have not and want the 50% off applied, please also contact me and I will adjust in our system.

Scholarship Program: We do have a scholarship program available. We follow the YMCA's standard for financial assistance when granting scholarships. Interested? Go to our site and click "registration info" to find out more. Scholarship application deadline is 9/30 and you MUST include all requested paperwork.

A separate scholarship application must be submitted for each player. The application should be submitted by the 9/30 and must be dropped off in the NIHA mailbox at the rink addressed to Treasurer. A limited number of scholarships are available on an annual basis. Based upon the degree of need, NIHA will award only up to 90% of the total house registration fee for an accepted scholarship applicant. NIHA reserves the right to limit the amount of financial aid awarded to a player.

Each application must be accompanied by the following attachments:
  • Copy of the most recent parent/guardian pay stub(s) or other documentation of income
  • Completed registration forms for the season

See the link below for more details.

If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to reach out @ Thanks!

ShopwithScrip - A way to save $$ on youth hockey fees

With the season now in full swing and the number of new players we have this year, I want to remind everyone about our new Shop with Scrips program. This program is a unique way for families to reduce their players fees directly just by doing the everyday shopping you already do. We rolled this program out in May and several families have already saved hundreds on their children's hockey fees. 

What it is: ShopwithScrip is a fundraising program our families can utilize in order to offset their players hockey fees. Essentially, it allows you to purchase gift cards to use instantly (and physical cards soon) and will give NIHA a rebate credit, which will be applied to your player's fees. I am the administrator for this program. Just on the normal things my family buys regularly, we've already saved roughly $200 on our son's fees (we've used these instant gift cards at Target, Walmart, Texas Roadhouse, Olive Garden, Lowes, Starbucks, Amazon & Best Buy, to name a few). 
You can find the program details and steps on our website under the main navigation header --> Fundraisers --> ShopwithScrip (see screenshot below). When you have a chance, please go there to check out the details and sign up, if you'd like to utilize this program. If you have any questions at all or the instructions aren't clear, please email me anytime. I want your feedback.
Here are some of many examples of places you probably shop regularly already, but can now use to save money on your fees.
Home Improvement - The Home Depot, Lowes 4%
Dining Out - Applebees, Red Lobster, Buffalo Wild Wings, Panera, Texas Roadhouse, Outback, PF Changs 8%
Various other restaurants 9-11% rebates
Pharmacy - CVS - 6%
Shopping - American Eagle, Macy's 10%, Kohls 4%, Bath & Body Works 13%, Old Navy 14%, Amazon 2.25%, Target & Walmart 2.5%, iTunes 5%, Best Buy 4%, Ulta 4%
Travel & Entertainment - Delta 4%, Southwest 4%, Disney 3%, AMC Theaters 8%, StubHub 4%, 6%, Sirius XM 4%
Grocery - Walmart 2.5%, Whole Foods 3%
**Rebate amounts change periodically**

The Newark Ice Hockey Association would like to thank The Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation for their continued support that makes so many things possible for so many NIHA families!
