As you have no doubt been hearing in the news, there has been an increase in coronavirus cases in our community. As a result of this, we too have experienced a number of positive tests over the last couple of days with some of our members. These positive tests have affected other members and has the potential of continuing to spread.
With this in mind, we discussed this issue, its impact on our members, the community and the Club and went through a variety of options of what we should do. Out of an abundance of caution, we have therefore decided to suspend the season at this time. We did not make this decision lightly and did so with the interest of all of our members health and safety in mind. The board of directors will be meeting to discuss this decision further and provide you with details regarding refunds etc… so we ask for your patience in the meantime.
I would like to thank all those that worked very hard over the last several months so that we could begin playing hockey. Although we are disappointed of having to make this decision, this was made with you in mind and we hope that all of you stay safe and take care of yourselves.
Please be aware of any symptoms you may experience and if you are concerned in any way, please contact your health practitioner. to access Halton Regional Health advice click here - https://www.halton.ca/For-Residents/New-Coronavirus#03
We will continue to monitor the current situation, learn from this experience and consider the club's further options.
As of immediately however,
- ALL games have been cancelled.
- As mentioned, we will address refund details at a later date.
- Hectors is closed until further notice.
- The ice that we had contracts for is NOT available to players to use tonight and will not be ours going forward.
We appreciate all the effort that your team Captains and division Convenors put in to try and keep everyone organized and safe.
