Hello MMHA family,
I wanted to take this opportunity to update the membership on where we stand today in regards to early season development and the latest on projections pertains to the season start. First I would like to thank every member of the executive for the hard work they have put in during this incredibly difficult off season without them I would have no reason to be sending this email today.
Monday marked the start of tryouts for our U13 to U18 groups and so far we are happy to say that they are progressing without any difficulty.
Starting this weekend our U11 pathways development will begin followed by A2 and C groups hitting the ice starting Sept 8th. September 8th schedule will be posted very soon, we apologize for not being able to get it out earlier but there is a lot of juggling and moving of pieces to accommodate only having access to one ice surface.
September 14 week should be scheduled and posted in the next few days we are just working through more ice logistics and then we can finalize.
All development groups should be formed no later than September 21 .
If all goes to plan PCAHA has a plan for all MHA’s to be playing games as early as Mid October of course this is subject to change but that is the current projection.
I would like to assure all involved that the executive is working tirelessly day and night to make sure all MMHA players have a positive and and as normal a hockey experience as possible in these very unusual times .
It has been and remains MMHA’s goal to uphold Hockey Canada’s vision for minor hockey across the country and that is “TO HAVE AS MANY KIDS PLAYING HOCKEY AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL POSSIBLE FOR THE LONGEST TIME POSSIBLE”
Schedules will be posted as early as they are possibly available and we will continue to work hard to secure more ice to provide our players with quality development opportunities going forward .
Your patience is much appreciated as we do this delicate dance around safely returning to play under COVID 19 protocols.
