USA hockey

OK, I have been playing ice hockey for quite a few years now and still don't know what exactly "USA Hockey" does for us and why we have to pay $32 for it every September. Anyone know? Thanks.

the 32.00 goes towards your insurance, member registration and your USA hockey mag subscription.

You do get some nice discounts out of it too if you travel for hockey. I think there are a few select airline(s), car rentals, and hotels that give discounts so that help recoup that $35 pretty quick.

A couple of bucks of it goes to your local youth programs, but it is an added insurance to your own health plan. Meaning if you have a hockey related injury and your insurance covers most of it but not all of it, your USA hockey insurance will pay your out of pocket expenses.

Fortunately I have not been hurt, but a teamate broke his foot. His insurance paid for it but they didn't cover the xrays. USA hockey reimbursed him for the $350 xray bill.

It also helps protect the rink for liability lawsuits.

Do you know the insurance details? I never had to use it, and only browsed thru the literature briefly. I thought the insurance kicked in when there was 'major' injury only and was above some $____ amount.

We need to support USA Hockey so that they can continue to support American hockey players at all levels.

Well it's supposed to pay for insurance and liability issues for the rinks, but ever since W got to the white house, the money has been used to fund the war on terror.
