CRMHA UPDATE for the 2020-21 SEASON


Jun. 04, 2020


Hello Everyone,

We hope everyone is doing well and keeping safe during this unique time.

Many of you are wondering what the upcoming season will look like, unfortunately, we are waiting like you for guidance from Hockey Canada and BC Hockey. At this point in time we are preparing for the following season as normal with the expectation there will be adaptions as guidelines and information becomes available.

Hockey Canada’s most recent release was as follows:

First, and most importantly, to the front-line and essential workers who have gone above and beyond around the clock to keep Canadians safe - a simple thank you is not nearly enough for what you have done over the last three months.

Second, to our Members, partners, local hockey associations, volunteers and fans across Canada, thank you for keeping the spirit of hockey alive. Unprecedented times have called for unprecedented efforts at every level of the game.

As provinces and territories phase in a plan to reopen in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are questions about when hockey will return, and how it will look when it does.

Hockey Canada and its Members are diligently working on a multifaceted return-to-hockey plan that will happen when, and only when, provincial and territorial governments and health authorities deem it safe to do so.

This plan includes everything from health and safety regulations to communications, seasonal structure, customer engagement and national teams.

As the return-to-hockey plan progresses, it will do so at different speeds, and at different times, across the country, based on direction from health authorities. And the game will look different, that much we do know. We ask for patience as we continue to work towards ensuring hockey plays its role in bringing the sports community back.

The health and safety of everyone involved in the game will determine when we return, not our desire to get back on the ice. When our country is ready, Hockey Canada will be ready. Until then, continue to follow the guidelines set by your provincial and territorial government to help limit the spread of COVID-19. Only by working together will we be able to make a difference and safely return.

Thank you for your passion and dedication to our game, and we hope to see you around the rink as soon as possible.

In the spirit of moving forward a few things to note:

  • Rep Coach Applications: We are now accepting applications for Head Coaches for the Rep program.  Applications must be submitted electronically by Due Date
  • Registration: We expect registration to open soon. Currently we are trying to delay long enough to get as much guidance as to what our season will look like. We understand this year may be more difficult than most and are looking at all of our options to help ease the financial burden.
  • AGM: Due to Covid, we have delayed the annual AGM  in the hopes of having an in-person meeting. This is increasingly becoming more and more unlikely. We will be looking to host an AGM online soon.
  • Equipment return: Once Strathcona Gardens opens we will be arranging times for equipment to be returned.
  • Installation of Ice: At this point we do not know when the ice will go in and a timeline will be determined by Strathcona Gardens when more information about the return to play of hockey becomes available from BC Hockey.  

 

Thank you for patience during this unusual time,

Joshua Visser

CRMHA President
