Goalies (Tyke to Midget):   

Hornets have goalie gear that is signed out to teams (coaches) that do not have a 
designated, full-time goalie.  Full-time or designated goalies from Novice to Midget 
can sign out the equipment by completing a waiver and provide a $1500 refundable 
deposit.  This deposit cheque is returned once the goalie gear has been returned 
(no later than September1).  

Goalie Equipment Rental Fee and Purchase Incentive:

Goalie Equipment (signed out pre-season - October to June): 
A rental fee (cheque) is required at the time the equipment is signed out to designated,
full-time goalies in the sum of: Novice Goalies ($100); Peewee Goalies ($150); and 
Bantam and Midget Goalies ($200). Cheques are payable to Hornets Lacrosse.  

Goalie Equipment (signed out for season - March to June):
A rental fee (cheque) is required at the time the equipment is signeeed out to designated,
full-time goalies in the sun of:  Novice Goalies ($50.00); Peewee Goalies ($75.00); and 
Bantam and Midget Goalies ($100.00).  Cheques are payable to Hornets Lacrosse.

Individual Pieces (Pre-season and season rental):  
If a goalie needs to use individual pieces to supplement what they have (leg guards, pants,
uppers and stick), there is a $50 fee per piece of equipment that is signed out for the 
pre-season (October to June) and for the season it is $25.00 per piece.  
Teams that do not have designated, full-time goalies, goalie equipment will be 
provided to the coach.

A goalie who wishes to purchase their own equipment, Hornets will be reimburse 30% of 
the cost of the goalie gear up to $500.00 per year (excluding GST).  This is for 
uppers, pants, and leg guards only).  To obtain a reimbursement you will need to email 
the receipt indicating what was purchased and we will provide a reimbursement cheque 
to you.  This is whether you have purchased new or used equipment (must have receipt 
or proof of purchase).

For Hornets to outfit a goalie it costs between $1000.00 and $1500.00.  We have never 
charged our goalies for using our equipment and there was very little expenditure on the 
part of goalies aside from the purchase of a helmet.  The Hornets felt that requesting a 
rental fee is fair and reasonable.  Also, players (runners) spend between $500.00 and 
$1000.00 on equipment (to get started) and then each year or every other year have to 
replace equipment.  We also spend approximately $50.00 per bag of goalie gear to get 
cleaned each year.

Cheques can be forwarded to Hornets Lacrosse, #415, 234 - 5149 Country HIlls 
Blvd. NW, Calgary, AB, T3A 5K8.
