Injury Credit Policy

If a player is unable to participate because of illness/injury, hockey related or not, he/she may be eligible for a monetary injury credit subject to the review and approval of the WYH Treasurer & review team. The following criteria will be used when evaluating a player's injury credit: 

·         The injury/illness must be at least 4 weeks duration.

·         The player's circumstances will be reviewed upon their return to their respective team except in situations where a player will be out for the remainder of the season. 

·         The injury/illness must be verified by a doctor’s note validating the illness/injury and that the player is authorized to return to play.

If the above are met, the Treasurer & the Review Team will determine the amount refundable by using the participation fees for that level, net of Registration, placement and other incurred fees, divided by the number of weeks in the season and multiplied by the number of weeks the player has missed.
