Q: We do not live in Marlton, can we play?
A: Yes, we have kids from the surrounding towns that do not have programs. All you have to do is create an account using your email in our registration system.
Q: Is my child required to wear certain equipment?
A: YES, safety first! Please visit the Equipment page to find out what you need. Sticks are sold at the rink.
Q: Can my child use a MYLEC helmet (they are pretty stylish!)?
A: No, they are not HECC certified (big sticker on the back) and all helmets are required to be HECC certified.
Q: My kid gets hot while on the rink, can she take off her helmet?
A: No, sorry. Helmets must be worn at all times when on the rink and bench area.
Q: When does the season start? When does it end? (for winter)
A: Starts with practices beginning of November; games begin in December, ends in February; Chipmunks start mid November when games begin. Teams will be notified in the last week of October.
Q: When do Chipmunks (4 to 6) play?
A: Chipmunks play on the weekends only; typically in the morning, early afternoon. Practices and games are combined in the same session.
Q: What about everyone else, when do we play?
A: Penguin, Beaver, and Cadet play on weekends and weeknights. There are no set days/nights. Penguin games usually are not scheduled to start later than 6pm. Weather (SNOW) has helped manipulate the schedule in the past when getting make up dates scheduled.
Q: Will the equipment be provided for my child?
A: No. It must be purchased. A jersey will be provided (and they are NICE!) But if this is an issue, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: My son would like to try goalie. Do I need to buy equipment?
A: No. We do have goalie equipment that can be borrowed for all of the divisions.
Q: I'd like to coach, what do I need? (BTW, we always need coaches, head and assistants, so thanks for volunteering!)
A: A great attitude and a Rutgers Coaching Certification, Current Background Check and Concussion Certification at the minimum. Check the MRC Coaches Page for the requirements.
Q: Can I request my son play with his friend?
A: Sure, but we are not able to support requests due to the size of the program. and the draft process. Sorry, thanks for understanding!
Q: Will my son and daughter play on the same team?
A: If they are in the same division, they will be on the same team!
Q: My daughter would like to play, what are the age restrictions?
A: Girls are allowed to play an extra year in each division. So 10 year olds can play Penguin, 13 years old in Beaver, etc.
Q: I unfortunately signed up late, when will I be notified by our coach?
A: After teams are selected, late registrations are usually notified within a couple of weeks. This allows us to see if any players already on a team get hurt, need to quit, etc and we can keep the numbers on each team balanced. We ask for patience in assigning your child to a team. Request can not be honored.
Q: I tried to sign up and there were no spots left?
A: We never like to turn away a player, however, by draft time the number of teams are set which limits the maximum number of players in that division.
