 "Bring A Friend" to the Ice Dogs

The Ice Dogs are offering a $100 discount on 2023-2024 fees to any returning 2022-23 Ice Dogs player who refers or brings a friend to the Ice Dogs try-outs if that friend makes an Ice Dogs full season team (Mite 8U, Squirt 10U, PeeWee 12U, Bantam 14U) for the 2023-2024 season and then registers and pays all required fees to play on that team in the 2023-2024 season.  The friend must be someone who has not previously played or tried out to play on an Ice Dogs team.  Both the Ice Dogs player as well as the friend must identify and “claim” each other during the online registration process prior to the try-outs.

The $100 discount will take the form of a refund to the Ice Dog player once all fees owed by the player and the friend for the 2023-2024 season have been collected by the Ice Dogs.

The "Fine Print"
Limit three redemptions of this offer per player.  (A player will receive a maximum of $300 discount, even if he refers or brings more than three friends to try-outs and they all make Ice Dogs teams).  Also, for purposes of this discount, no person can be claimed by more than one player as a friend referred or brought to the Ice Dogs.   Any disputes over the applicability of this discount will be finally determined in the sole discretion of the Ice Dogs.  Siblings are excluded as they already receive the larger sibling discount.  Current or former NJ Ice Dogs board member players or coach's players are excluded from this discount.
