Special Hockey - Return to Play Update
Welcome back to Hockey Ice Pirate Players and families.  

At this time KMHA and its Ice Pirate program are very happy to provide some details around program start up.  Junior, Intermediate and Senior teams will be heading to the ice after thanksgiving in October. Registration for these levels is now open. Each team will have modified safety protocols that will be shared with every family before coming to the rink. We ask that you make yourself and or your player aware of the changes and be prepared to participate in the safety practices for everyone’s shared well-being.

An update for our Fundamental Program families, we are working diligently with Region of Waterloo Public Health, the Province and our governing bodies to develop  our safety practices and protocols, train our volunteers and ensure that enough Personal Protective Equipment is ready for our volunteers and participants. These measures will help to ensure a safe and productive program for all involved. We will open registration for this level as soon as it is safe to do so.  This will allow time for families to register, prepare and adjust their schedules before we begin. Please keep your eyes peeled as we know the players are excited to return.

Timbits
The Timbits Minor Sports Program is a community-oriented sponsorship program for children four to eight years old who participate in local house league sports teams. The program's philosophy is not based on winning or losing - but on learning a new sport, making new friends, and just taking time out to be a kid. Tim Hortons currently sponsors over 200,000 children who play on hockey, soccer, lacrosse, t-ball, baseball and ringette teams across Canada and in the United States. Each sponsored team is supplied with Timbits Minor Sports jerseys or T-shirts. Timbits hockey teams are often given the opportunity to play on-ice scrimmages during intermissions at Junior, American Hockey League (AHL) and National Hockey League (NHL) games and do so with our own KITCHENER JR. A RANGERS. Tim Horton's once again sponsor's our 40 entry level HL teams this year.

Donna's Kids is pleased to partner again for 2019/2020 season with Sun Life and their Kids In Gear program. Kitchener Minor Hockey Association, as part of their mandate, provides financial support for children in this community who, without our assistance, would not be afforded the opportunity to participate in organized hockey in the City of Kitchener. Monies for this cause have been donated by various individuals and organizations over the years, however with increasing demands we have the need to provide further support for this program. One hundred per cent of the funds raised by KIDS IN GEAR are channelled directly to purchase equipment for children.
