Please see the Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) Bulletin and Document outlining Return to Hockey Stage 3A.
Coaches, Players & Parents,
On behalf of your Mattawa Minor Hockey Board of Directors, I would like to extend well wishes to you and your families. During these unprecedented times, it is important to recognize the importance of those that mean most to us and cherish the moments we have with them.
Our 2019/2020 season abruptly came to a unique end with the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and with the Phase 3 of Ontario’s plan allowing larger outdoor crowds, we would like to take this opportunity to have a modified banquet for players and their families.
The 2019/2020 version of the Mattawa Minor Hockey Banquet will take place in a modified format. This format will give each team to have a banquet of their own, with their players and families, while respecting the rules put in place by the Nipissing Parry Sound District Health Unit.
All players and families members will be required to:
- Ensure physical distancing of two metres;
- Use face coverings if a two metres distance cannot be maintained;
- Isolate yourself when you have symptoms and get tested for COVID-19;
- Practice cough and sneeze etiquette; and
- Promote hand washing and make alcohol-based hand sanitizer (with minimum alcohol concentration of 60%) available at all entrances and exits.
PLEASE NOTE: We will be able to maintain two metres of physical distancing at Explorer’s Point, therefore masks will NOT be required. Please respect the rules.
WHO: Players & immediate family members
WHAT: 2019/2020 Mattawa Minor Hockey Banquet
WHERE: Explorer’s Point
WHEN: July 27th & 28th – Scheduled Practice Times
WHY: Season wrap up
HOW: Following the guidelines in place by the Nipissing Parry Sound District Health Unit
This is a FREE event and only immediate family will be accepted.
Here is the schedule:
TYKE (U7): July 27 – 5:30pm – 6:30pm
ATOM (U11): July 27 – 6:40pm – 7:40pm
BANTAM (U15): July 27 – 7:50pm – 8:50pm

All teams will be asked to arrive 10 minutes before their allotted time and will be asked to leave immediately as their time expires (to avoid exceeding the outdoor space gathering limits of 100 people).
Appreciating that this may not be the banquet we have all come to expect, players will still receive awards, gifts from Mattawa Minor Hockey and a snack to take with them.
Thank you all in advance for your patience as we prepared for this and we appreciate working with us to respect the rules in place.
If you have yet to return your jersey, please do so at your banquet time.
Those unable to make the banquet will be able to coordinate with their coach/management for pickup of their awards.
