Hello NGHA members,
We are in uncharted waters and our hearts go out to all of those affected by this pandemic and our thanks go out to all those who are on the front lines helping us hold things together.
It is a time without precedent.
We wanted to reach out to you to give you an update on what the hockey landscape looks like. We know that hockey is a very important part of the fabric of our membership and this has been a hard time for everyone.
I had a call with the OWHA on Monday night with all the Presidents of Associations across Ontario. The message was that the situation is in a constant state of flux and that Hockey Canada and the OWHA want to do everything they can to get hockey back on the ice in a safe and responsible way.
Now they just have to figure out what that looks like.
I can tell you that currently everything is on hold across the country from Hockey Canada’s directive. There will be rumours about what may be happening or what other Associations may be doing, but the reality is, we are in a holding pattern.
We wanted to approach this with a positive mindset and we believe/hope that the season will begin in some way, shape or form.
I know people have many questions about when it will start, what it will look like, how tryouts will happen when sort-outs will be and many, many other questions.
We do not know what those answers are.
With that, we wanted to open up registration for next year officially. We will not be asking for any payment at this time, as we do not know what the landscape will look like and what the registration fees will be. We also know that it is a very difficult time financially for many in our communities right now.
The registration link is here;
If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to me directly.
Please take care and be safe,
The NGHA is looking for volunteers to help support the growth and operations of our Associations. We always have a need for dedicated volunteers who are able to donate their time and skills to help make our association the best in the region.
