Update Regarding Governor Baker’s Temporary Shutdown

Dear MYHA:

Unfortunately, the Hockey Gods were not 100% aligned with Governor Baker and we will be taking (by mandate) what we all hope will only be a brief reprieve from the ice – no practices or games for two weeks beginning tonight at 5PM and running through 12:01AM on Nov. 7th.

I’d like to thank all our members – Participants, Parents, Coaches, our Board of Directors – for doing their best to manage and comply with all our new hockey protocols for the greater health and safety of our community.

As we all know, hockey is a fast game and a lot can change during the course of a period. Let’s keep our feet moving and carry on with strong sticks as we look forward. Fingers crossed that this is just a break between periods in our 2020-21 season!

As such, we aim to set up some dry-land hockey training – likely at Bud Orne with partnership from Parks & Rec. Stay tuned. Sign up genius and schedule forthcoming.

Naturally, any and all compliance (masks on and up with social distancing – “let’s keep the 6!”) will be in play for any such dry-land opportunities.

Let’s keep our collective helmet on and stay as positive as possible – it’s disappointing news but we’ll make it through this.

-John Payne | MYHA
