Update on the 2020-2021 Hockey Season
Submitted By Sarah Rider on Monday, August 10, 2020
We are working hard to bring the players back to hockey in a safe way and to make sure players still have a fun and exciting hockey year. 

WMHA has formulated a plan for the season based on safety protocols from Hockey Canada, Alliance hockey, the City of Woodstock and the Board of health.

Following the Return to Play safety protocols, there will not be try outs in the month of September.  The first 4 weeks of hockey will be development ice. Travel players are to go to the ice time of the team they were on last season for skills development. If you don’t want to report to the travel team that you where on, please let me know and I can add you to the house league list, which will begin September 28th. Example - U11 Rep last season reports to ice times for U12 Rep.

If you are moving into Woodstock please contact Pat Langdon (WMHA office) and she will add you to a team list. 

After this and in consultation with the City of Woodstock and the Board of Health we hope to move into phase 3c, where we will be able to have modified games and begin to schedule try outs with the objective of starting the actual seasoned games in January. Once the city releases WMHA ice time, it will be posted it on the web page. 

We have strict rules to how many can come into the arena, and there will be a check in table and check out for all ice times. 
-Players U11 and under will be required to come dressed and they will put their skates on in their assigned area. 
-Players U12 and up if they don’t want to come dressed, they will be given dressing rooms. 

**Players have to arrive at the arena 15 minutes before their scheduled ice time, sign in and then proceed into the arena. You cannot arrive after your ice time has begun, you will be turned away. Also, if your name is not on the list then you will not be able to enter.**

It will only be 1 parent or guardian allowed in with no younger siblings. 

After their ice time, they will only have 15 minutes to take skates and equipment off and leave the arena as a group. 

Registration payments
Fees must be paid before the players first ice time.

If you have registered and not paid you have a couple of choices to do this: 
o   Mail in your cheque to the office
o   e-transfer your fees        (Please add players full name and date of birth in the memo)
o   or contact Pat Langdon by email and set up payment plan or credit card payment.
