Tryout Fees

Tryouts are held for all teams EXCEPT Jamboree and Exhibition ONLY players. The cost of tryouts is $15.

Team Uniforms

All travel players will wear the Revolution Team Uniform. This is comprised of 2 jerseys with player nameplates – 1 home and 1 away ($150*); 2 pair of travel socks – 1 home and 1 away ($46); one pair of breezer covers/shell ($47) – ($243 for entire uniform*); helmet stickers – 1 set ($7) (August/September)

*Helmet stickers are not included in the uniform price. Custom nameplates are $10 for set. See CIGHA Treasurer for rent to own/other budget friendly options (typically requires $50 deposit and $10/mo payments).


All teams associated with The CIGHA Organization will be required to participate in the Central Illinois Girls March Meltdown each March. The entry fee varies by age and ranges $1,250-$1,550 per team. Teams may also choose to participate in as many tournaments as they like throughout the season. Typically, the 10U, 12U, and 14U age groups participate in the Ponytail Classic at Wisconsin Dells in early December. The entry fee has been $775 per team for the past 6 seasons. Most teams will choose only two additional tournaments (4 total for the season) that typically fall around Martin Luther King or President’s weekend. However, regular season games MUST be scheduled and played and take precedence, as forfeitures are not permitted. Additional tournaments range from $1,000-$2,000 per tournament. ALL TOURNAMENT FEES ARE ROLLED INTO THE PLAYERS’ MONTHLY ICE BILLS (per month August-March)

Bill reminders are sent to each player no later than the 5th of each month. The bills are leveled, and go toward the following costs:
