my fundraising experience comes from an inline league i direct (yes, i do play competitive ice hockey as well). anyway, like someone else mentioned, tournaments are a great way to raise money as long as you can keep costs down. doing tournaments for all different age groups is a good way to raise extra money too rather than a single tournament. you can also do other things WITHIN the tournament such as skills competitions (and participants who AREN'T in the tournament can also compete for a fee). of course the tournament and skills winners would need to be rewarded, but like someone else mentioned, there are ways to do that without spending money. raffles are also great, especially if you can get free raffle items. i contacted a few local pro shops before our tournaments took place and got some new donated equipment to raffle, we also had an online hockey shop create a special coupon code for our league that got people 10% off purchases from the shop's site. good luck!
