After lengthy discussion, consultation, and coordination, the Mattawa Minor Hockey Association has decided to Return to Hockey for the 2020-2021 Season. Understanding the worldly circumstances we have in front of us and continue to face, this hockey season will be different. But rest assured, we feel that different doesn’t mean less.
Parents and players will be able to safely return to hockey based on recommendations and a framework set forward by Hockey Canada, the Ontario Hockey Federation, the Northern Ontario Hockey Association, and our local health unit. This decision has not been easy to make and we will continue to monitor our environment to ensure everyone’s safety.
At this point in time, we cannot share every single detail with you, but what we can share will be added to a COVID-19 resources section on our website. Parents, coaches and Board Members will be required to complete an online “Safety Return to Hockey module”. MMHA will ensure our local rink is prepared for the arrival of our players and family members. MMHA will also ensure we are aware of the expectations of the rinks we will attend.
Please keep an eye on our website for developments regarding our 2020-2021 season, the resources available to everyone, and how we will proceed with a Safe Return to Hockey.
Registration fees will remain the same as 2019-2020 and the season will be broken into 2 sessions. October-January & January-March. Everyone will be required to pay their first session fees before stepping on the ice. With COVID-19 determining our path forward, we will have parents pay for their 2nd session when the time comes.
This year, all parents will be able to complete their registration on-line at the link below. Payments SHOULD be made via Interac e-transfer to [email protected] with the password mmhahockey or can be accepted at our in-person registration Sept 21 & 22 – 6pm-8pm at Mike Rodden Arena and cash or cheque can be accepted.
If you have any questions or concerns, please visit the pages of this website for additional information or contact
