We hope all of our hockey families and friends are doing well. It’s hard to believe that just 6-weeks ago, our rink was full with customers and our hockey families and friends. Then overnight, our daily lives were turned upside down and life as we knew it came to a halt. Things we took for granted, like playing hockey, working out, going for a skate, or visiting with friends, have become fond memories and we all look forward to being able to resume these activities in the future. Like you, we all wish we were on the ice and we are confident that we will emerge from this challenge healthy, safe, and ready to welcome you all back into the rink and on to the ice soon.
What is the status of the 2020 Spring Programs?
Our spring programs are delayed until such time that we can open and operate the program safely and within the rules set by government and public health officials. Notwithstanding that guidance, we will be operating our spring programs, even if they are delayed into June. With players being off the ice for an extended period of time, it’s important that they resume physical activities and prepare for tryouts and the 2020-2021 hockey season. We feel that the spring and summer programs are an important part of resuming hockey life and we will do everything we can to preserve them.
We expect social distancing and other state guidance will modify our lives for some time, but we do expect the continued re-opening of various activities and ultimately the re-opening of rinks and the return of hockey. Our registration for the fall season will commence when we see additional restrictions being lifted. Please stay tuned for updates regarding fall teams, programs, and registration.
Everyone be safe and stay healthy!
