Player accounts (Siblings in different organizations)


Families with siblings in different organizations will identify under

which player the tickets will be submitted during initial ticket distribution at

the beginning of the year. At the end of the year, the association amounts

will be split equally among organizations for each player. For example, 2

children in the family playing for Cape Breton Minor Hockey Partners,

CBCMHA, BFHA = 50% shared cost of association earnings; 3 children =

33%; 4 children = 25%, etc.


Families with children on a major team and an association, the major

team player is considered independent of the association and therefore the

association player(s) must sell the minimum amount of tickets required by

their association.
