Programming being held tonight as well as Tuesday the 4th
will continue as scheduled. This includes developmental programs such as the Tuesday
HL goalie group.
All KMHA Hockey programming including, Boys, Girls, Special,
Sledge, House League, Select, Local League, D.S., Minor Development, Seeded,
AAA, Development Programs, Power Skating and Goalie Training, will be on pause
from Jan 5th till at least Jan 26th while arenas are
closed. KMHA will take that time to work with our
governing bodies and facility partners to determine the best plan for returning
to Hockey, and what that means for players and parents.
KMHA along with the rest of the public were informed today about the Provincial move to return to a modified Step 2 in the Reopening Ontario plan. Details can be found here: Ontario Temporarily Moving to Modified Step Two of the Roadmap to Reopen | Ontario Newsroom
The important details effecting Hockey include.
- Closing indoor meeting and event spaces with limited exceptions but permitting outdoor spaces to remain open with restrictions.
- Closing indoor sport and recreational fitness facilities including gyms, except for athletes training for the Olympics and Paralympics and select professional and elite amateur sport leagues. Outdoor facilities are permitted to operate but with the number of spectators not to exceed 50 per cent occupancy and other requirements.
Teams are encouraged to stay in touch over electronic formats as well as to work out online together to maintain their physical fitness.
Alliance Hockey has also noted the following in a bulletin today.
“In conjunction with the announcement made today by Premier Ford and the Ontario Government concerning public health measures and further COVID restrictions, all hockey under the umbrella of ALLIANCE Hockey will pause in its entirety beginning January 5, 2022 at 12:01am at least until 12:01am on January 27, 2022.
It is imperative that everyone continue to follow all public measures and get vaccinated with your first, second or booster dose if you have not done so already as we plan to return to hockey once permitted.
ALLIANCE Hockey will continue to maintain focus to ensure that once possible, we will be ready to return to play.”
KMHA will post any updates from other governing bodies as we receive them.
