***** Please note that promotional companies are NOT permitted to reproduce the EGHA logo on apparel or promotional items.*****
Apparel is an important part of our league as we try to build our brand - and help more girls be comfortable in joining EGHA - either as first time players or transfers from ringette or other Hockey Edmonton leagues. For that reason, we ask you to please consider using our apparel instead of ordering your own through other suppliers.
We know you can get better prices in some cases or faster turnaround (we should be 4-5 weeks this year if the supplier fulfills their promises) and we can’t force you to use our stuff - - but we do want to give you a couple of thoughts as to why using the EGHA items may be better in the long term.
· Players move from team to team each year - customizing hoodies or track suits look great but may not be worn after that year. The EGHA apparel will look great no matter which team you are on. Parents and players will get more use for their investment.
· It promotes the league - girls will change teams year over year, but almost always stay with the EGHA - we want them to be our ambassadors for our league amongst all EGHA players.
· We make a small profit - 5-10% per item. This money helps pay for photo day and other things the EGHA provides.
You are entitled to get your own items if you still want to - we just want to ask you and your team to consider our EGHA apparel first before you make any orders. Please note that at this time the EGHA logo is limited to its use on association- approved apparel only (i.e. what the association is selling).
