Gaming Rules

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 by providing details of the event you may be required to fill out a 50/50 Gaming Information form or a Raffle Information Form depending on the type of fundraising being done. this will be sent to the Gaming Director at for approval at least three weeks prior to your fundraising event.  The Gaming Director must approve all fundraising activities involving gaming.  BC Gaming will not expedite last minute planning for rushed licenses. After the event, the team manager must notify the Gaming Director with the completed  Gaming Summary Report.
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.

Bottle Drive Information

JdFMHA has predetermined bottle drive routes available for teams.   

Step 1: Complete this form to schedule your bottle drive and have a route reserved

Step 2: Acquire a BC Hockey Sanction Number -  BC Hockey online sanctioning form (at least 7 days ahead which covers insurance) and have the following information available:

  • Date of Bottle drive
  • Company being used for bottle drive: Alpine or Bottle Depot
  • Sorting location
  • Team name
  • Team contact name and email address (Day of Bottle Drive contact as well if different)

** Some sorting locations require our JDF Secretary ( ) to book the location. (ie: Lakehill school / park & ride, which are both booked under WSPR.  Make sure you have your BC Hockey Sanction Number first)

Step 3: After you receive you approval email with Sanction number(4 digit number in subject line), forward the email to the JDF Gaming Director at who will then review the application and issue the team a route.

JDFMHA Bottle Drive Guidelines

When you have completed your route you must hand back your route as we often 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.
