Is there a cost to minor hockey associations to participate in the atoMc® program?
There is no cost to associations to participate in atoMc® Hockey when using the standard atoMc® Hockey jersey (see Style #1 below).
What jersey styles are available?
There are two jersey styles and 14 standard colour options available.
The standard atoMc® Hockey jersey (see Option #1) comes with your association logo on the front centre chest (printed in black and white) and the atoMc Hockey logo across the lower back. The jersey also includes the McDonald’s Golden Arches logo on the right shoulder, the Ronald McDonald House Charities logo on the left shoulder, the Hockey Canada logo on the upper right side and player number.
For those associations who chose to have their association logo be printed in colour, please select Option # 2. Please note, your association will be responsible to cover the additional printing cost. The cost will be provided and approved during the qualification process with the jersey supplier. Style #2 will also feature the atoMc Hockey logo, the McDonald’s Golden Arches logo, the Ronald McDonald House Charities logo, the Hockey Canada logo and player number.
All participating teams will be provided with Style #1 jersey unless requested otherwise at the time the jersey order is placed.
Associations will be responsible for any incremental costs associated with the placement of additional non-competing sponsor logos and name bars on the jerseys. Should teams wish to include name bars, please place them at the bottom of the jersey, in the open space below the number and above the golden arches and Olympic rings patch. Please note if you have "home and away" jerseys you will need to create removable name bars in order to rotate your jerseys from season to season.

How long does this sponsorship last?
The atoMc® Hockey sponsorship is for the 2016-17 minor hockey season. Registration will re-open in early 2017 for the 2017-18 season.
Do we have to reuse the jerseys and socks or do the players keep them?
At the end of every season, each child will keep their jersey and socks. The atoMc® hockey program is designed to offer this as a memento of the season. A new set of jerseys and socks will be provided to participating teams each season. Minor hockey associations will be required to renew for the opportunity to participate in the atoMc® Hockey program in a subsequent season if they have already participated in the atoMc® Hockey program.
Can we order home and away jerseys?
Home and away jerseys are available for teams to order only if their league requires teams to have two sets. If this is the case, teams can order a "home and away" set once. One set will be given to the players at the end of the year, and the second set will be retained by the association for the following year.
The following year the association will only order one set per team, alternating the jerseys each year so kids can take them home and the association has a 1 year old set on hand.
