Goalies (Tyke to Midget):
Hornets have goalie gear that is signed out to teams (coaches) that do not have a
designated, full-time goalie. Full-time or designated goalies from Novice to Midget
can sign out the equipment by completing a waiver and provide a $1500 refundable
deposit. This deposit cheque is returned once the goalie gear has been returned
(no later than September1).
Goalie Equipment Rental Fee and Purchase Incentive:
Goalie Equipment (signed out pre-season - October to June):
A rental fee (cheque) is required at the time the equipment is signed out to designated,
full-time goalies in the sum of: Novice Goalies ($100); Peewee Goalies ($150); and
Bantam and Midget Goalies ($200). Cheques are payable to Hornets Lacrosse.
Goalie Equipment (signed out for season - March to June):
A rental fee (cheque) is required at the time the equipment is signeeed out to designated,
full-time goalies in the sun of: Novice Goalies ($50.00); Peewee Goalies ($75.00); and
Bantam and Midget Goalies ($100.00). Cheques are payable to Hornets Lacrosse.
Individual Pieces (Pre-season and season rental):
If a goalie needs to use individual pieces to supplement what they have (leg guards, pants,
uppers and stick), there is a $50 fee per piece of equipment that is signed out for the
pre-season (October to June) and for the season it is $25.00 per piece.
Teams that do not have designated, full-time goalies, goalie equipment will be
provided to the coach.
A goalie who wishes to purchase their own equipment, Hornets will be reimburse 30% of
the cost of the goalie gear up to $500.00 per year (excluding GST). This is for
uppers, pants, and leg guards only). To obtain a reimbursement you will need to email
the receipt indicating what was purchased and we will provide a reimbursement cheque
to you. This is whether you have purchased new or used equipment (must have receipt
or proof of purchase).
For Hornets to outfit a goalie it costs between $1000.00 and $1500.00. We have never
charged our goalies for using our equipment and there was very little expenditure on the
part of goalies aside from the purchase of a helmet. The Hornets felt that requesting a
rental fee is fair and reasonable. Also, players (runners) spend between $500.00 and
$1000.00 on equipment (to get started) and then each year or every other year have to
replace equipment. We also spend approximately $50.00 per bag of goalie gear to get
cleaned each year.
Cheques can be forwarded to Hornets Lacrosse, #415, 234 - 5149 Country HIlls
Blvd. NW, Calgary, AB, T3A 5K8.
