DYHA 2018 ONLINE JERSEY NUMBER AUCTION

 

ANNOUNCING THE DYHA 45TH ANNIVERSARY

JERSEY NUMBER AUCTION

 

To celebrate its 45th anniversary, DYHA is launching its first-ever jersey number auction to accompany the program's new jerseys! As a special 45 Anniversary gift, the DYHA has purchased new jerseys for travel players this season. The jerseys will be provided to travel players at no additional cost, so a successful bid on a jersey number will be a travel family’s only jersey expense! 

100% of number bidding proceeds will go to the Friends of DYHA, which provides financial aid for individual DYHA House and Travel players that otherwise could not afford to participate in the program. For more information about Friends of DYHA, go to DYHA’s website at:

FRIENDS OF DYHA.

Bid on your favorite number, secure it with a winning bid and that number will be yours ... no more auctions in your future (unless you decide to seek a new number) , the number is yours for as long as you remain on a DYHA travel team! 

IMPORTANT!! DYHA teams are comprised of mixed birth year players, so EVEN birth years (e.g., 2010) will choose from even numbers and ODD birth years (e.g., 2009) will choose from odd numbers.  Numbers offered will be between 1 and 98.

Now your player can confidently put their number on custom t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats and track suits and wear it for years to come! 

 Supplemental travel teams (Mite B Blue and White, Squirt B1 and Midgets, as well as house players and Ice Cats) are not part of the bidding process.

**Bidding is not mandatory, but with a donation as small as $10 you can begin the process to secure your player’s number.

 Families that choose not to bid will have the opportunity to select from numbers remaining after the auction closes at 9pm on May 30th.  After 10pm that evening, if your bid has been unsuccessful or you have opted not to bid for a number you will have until June 1st at noon (12pm) to select a number remaining from your birth year that has not been bid on.  Email  with your selection, and selections will be filled on a first come, first served basis.  If you do not select a number by June 1st at noon, you will be randomly assigned a number from those numbers remaining.  You will not be charged for this number. 

Numbers cannot be transferred to another player, and once a player leaves the DYHA travel program the number is returned to the pool for future re-assignment.

The auction will go live Tuesday morning, May 29, at 9am and end Wednesday, May 30, at 9pm.  Please visit the website link below and familiarize yourself with the process and get your player’s favorite numbers ready to go!

If you have any questions, please contact Margot Krotee at .

**Bidding is only allowed for members of DYHA travel teams.  We reserve the right to delete bids from supporters that are not part of our community and the non-qualified travel teams, house teams or Ice Cats.
