First, I would like to thank everyone for their patience and support during our temporary pause on our hockey season. It was a stressful decision for this executive but a necessary one. The pause only affected a very small part of our association and games will be made up.

 Now, provided that the OMHA and Province do not implement further restrictions on sports, and Covid case counts remain under control, we are happy to state we will be removing the pause effective 12:01 am Dec 27 th. That being said, there are a number of other centers on pause and games will only be scheduled according to the NDHL scheduler and availability of teams.
This removal does come with some conditions however.

1. There will be no cross overs. This means AP’s must practice with their own teams only. No players may help with another team this includes siblings. ALL players must only attend their own ice times with their own teams

2. APs may attend a game, provided that the team’s roster is not filled and the team may be short players.

3. All members must continue to use the Sports Heads app to screen. Any member with any symptoms must not attend any team events.

4. Masks must be worn at all times in the change rooms until such time as the helmets can be donned.

5. Coaches must always wear their masks until on the ice itself.

6. Continue to follow the City of Port Colbornes 15 minute rule.

 Like the pause, this too is temporary. We will monitor weekly, if the cases remain low, we will allow crossing over again. To be clear, should we see a rise in Covid cases in our teams, we will not hesitate to pause our season again.

 Contrary to circulating rumours, we are in constant contact with Public Health, NDHL and the OMHA. All agencies  100% support our cautious approach. The health and safety of our entire membership is the most important thing to this executive. Not only does it protect our players and coaches, it also protects our loved ones at home.
