Payment for City League Registration 2017-2018 Season
The Hong Kong Typhoons organization is under new management and is financially sound. Further information will be released once available.
The Hong Kong Typhoons organization is pleased to announce that registration for the 2017-2018 City League Season is now open. New to this year, the Hong Kong Typhoons will hold try outs in May for the City League and HK Selects & Typhoons Team. The tryout fee is HKD500 for each division or programme in which you wish to register your child. In addition a deposit of HKD2,000 will be required to secure the spot on the roster for the upcoming season. The full season fee is listed below and this HKD2,000 deposit will be used towards the 2017-2018 City League fee. Should your child not qualify for the league, your money will be refunded to you. If your child wishes to play up and does not qualify, your money will be transferred to the division that is appropriate for your child. There will be no refund here. If you wish to register for the season, please complete the form at the bottom of this communication.
If your child wishes to try out for the HK Selects & Typhoons Team programme, this will require a separate deposit of HKD2,000 for that program. For example, if a player wants to play SD10, SD12 and Team programme, he/she has to pay HKD2,000+HKD500+HKD2,000+HKD500+HKD2,000=HKD7,000 for each division and try out.
The Hong Kong Typhoons organization is excited to have secured additional ice time for the upcoming 2017-2018 season. For your reference, an indicative schedule is set out below. The final schedule will be confirmed AFTER tryouts so that the coaches have a better idea of numbers, skill level and player attributes in each division. This enables the coaches to provide the most competitive and safest environment for player development.

In order to be a HK Selects/Typhoons team member, the player must be playing in one of our city leagues and must commit to attending the team practices and tournaments. Failure to do so without a strong excuse may result in your child being dropped from the HK Selects and Typhoons Team programme. There will be no refunds if you are dropped.
After team tryouts, every qualified player will be a member of the Typhoons team. For each competitive level tournament, the organization will select the players to compete from the Typhoons team pool to form the HK Selects team. Playing once for HK Selects team does not mean you will continuously be a HK Selects player. The organization believes strongly in developing all rounded individuals on and off ice, as such, not only are the ability level and skills important, but the player's overall attitude, level of commitment, participation, team work etc. are instrumental in determining if a player remains a Typhoons team member.
If a player wants to play and represent the organization in these tournaments, they must join the team practices. At Hong Kong Typhoons organization, team practices are extremely important and the organization will focus these practices on line training as well as team formation plays. We are also committed to arranging tournaments for everyone in the Typhoons team programme.

Players will be placed in a primary division based on their birth year. Your child may play in a division for older children ONLY if a coach deems it appropriate and ONLY on the basis that he or she also plays in the division appropriate for his or her age. In other words, your child MUST play in the division for his or her age and may then, at the coach's discretion, play a 2nd division on top of that. If you wish to request that the coach consider your child for play in a 2nd division, please mark the registration form box to so indicate.
A goalie who wishes to play as a player in another division must register and pay for BOTH divisions.
The tryouts are for both HK Selects & Typhoons Team programme and the City League.
Your child should attend the tryout below based on their birth year. If you wish your child to play in a second division, your child should ALSO attend the tryout for the higher age group. If you are unable to make the tryout for your division, please contact us.

The Hong Kong Typhoons organization is proud to introduce two skills training sessions on Wednesday evenings from 8-9pm and 9-10pm. The training will be broken down for U10/U12 and some qualified U8s to train in the 8-9pm slot and U12-U16 for the 9-10pm slot. Once registrations are in, it will allow us to have a better idea on how to allocate the players. Your child is also welcome to join both sessions, but again it will be up to the coaches to decide if your child will benefit from the training. The cost is still being calculated but a deposit of HKD2,000 for will be required to secure a spot. If you register for both time slots, you will need to pay HKD2,000+HKD2,000=HKD4,000.

The cost is still being calculated but a deposit of HKD2,000 for will be required to secure a spot. If the spots are filled and you are unsuccessful in qualifying, the deposit will be transferred to the league fee or credited towards other training programs where applicable.
Power Skating and Checking Training
Hong Kong Typhoons organization will be hosting a new and improved power skating and checking session in the Festival Walk this year. This is open to all ages. Just like skating, puck control, passing and shooting, there are key progressions to the skill of checking when taught effectively. A common misconception is that the skill of checking begins at a certain age or age category of play. In fact, checking is a multi step progression that begins the first time a young player steps on the ice. Depending on the age and ability, we will introduce the following steps slowly, positioning and angling, stick checks, contact confidence and body contact, and finally, body checking. The cost is still being calculated but a deposit of HKD2,000 for will be required to secure a spot. If the spots are filled and you are unsuccessful in qualifying, the deposit will be transferred to the league fee or credited towards other training programs where applicable.
As an incentive for goalies to train with the Typhoons organization, we are pleased to announce a new HK Selects & Typhoons Team goalie incentive arrangement. A goalie has to fully pay up for and commit to the Typhoons City League and the HK Selects & Typhoons Team training program. Payment and participation in the skills training is optional. This incentive will apply to goalies that are selected to join the HK Selects & Typhoons Team training. At the end of the season (July 30, 2018), if the goalie has fully participated in the City League, fully played in the HK Selects & Typhoons Team practices and participated in the tournaments that are required by the organization (such as in their own age group in Mega 5s), then the Typhoons organization will fully refund the goalies’ City League fees and the HK Selects & Typhoons Team training fees. If the goalie has also paid for skills training, that will be refunded too. In case of any dispute, The HK Typhoons organization reserves the right of final decision on the interpretation of these terms and conditions.
