MWH Hockey Update
December 2, 2020
Dear MWH Hockey Families,
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and trust in us as we navigate through this unconventional hockey season. We are working diligently behind the scenes to protect your interests and we want to reassure you that we will continue to be transparent and keep you as informed as we can. We acknowledge that this is a frustrating situation and ask that you continue to have confidence in us and know that we have your best interests at heart . Below is an update on the 2020-2021 season.
Will there be a hockey season this year?
Public Health's latest announcement extended the restrictions on sports and recreation in red zones until January 11th. We were hopeful that we would be on the ice before that, however at this time we are targeting a January start in the “orange zone”.
Will I be getting a refund?
Because we will only be able to offer a shortened hockey season at best, we will be issuing all hockey registrants a refund at the end of the season. Unfortunately, we cannot determine the exact amount at this time because of a number of factors outside the MWH hockey’s control.
The MWCRA, Hampstead Recreation and the MWH Hockey Committee understand the difficulties that many families may be having, indeed it is a frustrating time for everyone. As an Association we acknowledge that we have already missed half our season and we will work hard to ensure that each MWH Hockey family receives as much as a refund as possible. As we get more information we will update you.
We would also like to advise you about the Hockey Canada Foundation Assist Fund (https://assistfund.hockeycanadafoundation.ca/en/index.html):
The Hockey Canada Foundation Assist Fund is a one million dollar fund that has been created to provide help to Canadians experiencing financial challenges as a result of COVID-19. The Assist Fund will provide up to $500 per player in registration fee subsidies to approved applicants who are registered with a Hockey Canada-sanctioned association, helping young Canadians get back on the ice in their communities.
We would like to take this time to wish you and yours a healthy and busy month of outdoor December activities. Stay healthy and be safe, we look forward to seeing everyone back at Legion rink in the New Year.
We will be in touch soon,
