Good evening Flags family;
We hope everyone is healthy and enjoying the first part of 2021. The MTMHA hockey committee has recently met to discuss options to return for remainder of the Season.
We want to give our membership the opportunity to voice whether or not they want to return to finish out this season.
MTMHA's first priority is to keep our kids safe, while also allowing them to stay healthy, get some exercise, and enjoy the game we all love.
We have put trust in the safety precautions that have been outlined by OHF, OMHA, Lambton Public Health and the Township of St. Clair. MTMHA hockey is set to resume the week of March 1 after we collect data from our membership to help us plan the remainder of the season, and if the majority of players wish to return. (See Form Link Below)
Right now, we would return to play following survey answers while still under Red Covid Colour Level. We have hopes that we will transition to Orange or better in the coming weeks. Regardless of our colour code we are prepared to operate hockey activities within approved precautionary measures.
If we operate under a Red Level, we will be restricted to groups of a maximum of 10 players, and 2 on-ice Coaches or Trainers. One Parent/Guardian per Family will be permitted in the arena. Red Level Precautions will restrict use of dressing rooms and players will have to come fully dressed, from head to toe, (excluding skates). Players not fully dressed would not be allowed access to the facility, until such time as they are fully dressed. With only ten players on the ice, players will get a new opportunity to get enhanced coaching, and more teaching during this phase. No games/ scrimmages will be played during red. Refunds would be prorated once season is completed based on how much icetime was achieved during this phase (likely 1 skate / week). If you opt out now, your refund will be the same as previously announced.
If we transition to a Level Orange or better we will continue the season with similar programing format used prior to our pause in December.
Depending on the participation levels there may be some shuffling of players to accommodate restrictions.
To help us plan, Please complete the attached Return to Hockey On-line form prior to Thursday Feb 25 11:00 pm. This form can be accessed in link below.
