Gaming Rules (Updated September 2015)

1.  JDFMHA 50/50 Policy
  • There will be no 50/50 draws during regular season or exhibition games.
  • Only when hosting a tournament will 50/50 draws be permitted with the correct licensing.
  • For 50/50 draws, the winning ticket needs to be retained for five years. 
2. Teams are not able to conduct any Class D gaming events in a pub, licensed premise inside an arena, or any other place that is licensed to serve or sell liquor.
3.  All plans for team fundraising activities involving gaming must be submitted through the Gaming Pre-approval Form to the for approval at least three weeks prior to your fundraising event.  Information concerning the nature of the event, date, time, location and team conducting the event must be provided.  The Gaming Director must approve all fundraising activities involving gaming.  After the event, the team manager must notify the Gaming Director to complete the gaming event process.
4.  Teams may plan, budget and fundraise through gaming for the following purposes:
  • tournament team registration fees
  • additional ice rental
  • dryland training facilities
  • referees for exhibition games
  • team equipment (pucks, pylons, etc.)
  • player expenses, such as team bus, players' only hotel expenses, and other travel expenses incurred by the player (not players' family members)
  • other player development expenses
Failure by members of JDFMHA to follow these rules could jeopardize the approval of future gaming fund requests made by JDFMHA.   The Gaming Policy Branch granted our Association $100,000 this season, from its gaming revenue, which has allowed us to purchase such items as extra ice from our four home arenas.  Should an audit be conducted and our Association is found to be "not in compliance' with the reporting requirements, we risk losing future grants; therefore, everyone's registration could go up in the area of $150 per player.  JDFMHA is a community organization and we will continue to give back to the community at events like our annual food drive on picture day and at our tournaments throughout the season.

JDFMHA Bottle Drive Guidelines (Updated Sept 2016)

When you have completed your route you must hand back your route as we currently have a waitlist for bottle drive routes. Teams are allowed to do more than one bottle drive per season but you will have to request a new route for every bottle drive you plan.

Teams are allowed to flyer their given routes but you are not allowed to put flyers up in your own neighborhoods. You can get friends and family members to drop their bottles to you. If every player collected in their own neighborhoods there would not be any routes available.

Please make sure to follow the guidelines to make it fair for every team in the association. Failure to comply with the guidelines could see your team assessed with a fine.
