It's official! Westmoreland, Allegheny, and most of the counties in Southwestern PA will move to the Green Phase of the Governor’s Reopening Plan next week.
This is certainly great news for all of us that have been patiently awaiting the chance to return to the rink.
Our Board and Hockey Operations group have had discussions with Center Ice management and have bounced some ideas and plans around as to how we get back on the ice, along with how we move forward with tryouts for the 2020-2021 season.
Having a clear indication from the state that the rink can reopen was a key step in the process. Having that now allows us to start filling out our plans. We will be doing that over the next few days and will be sending out information early next week.
While nothing is finalized, we intend to have some open skates / practices that will allow our players to get back on the ice and break the rust off. We will do this for a couple weeks before we get to tryouts.
There are several different things to consider in setting tryout dates, including the availability of our outside evaluators. Even with the virus, we know many people (families, coaches, evaluators, etc.) are still planning to take their summer vacations. Because of vacations, it will be impossible to select dates when every player is present. Our Hockey Ops group will determine how we deal with players that are not available for the scheduled tryout dates. That information will be part of our communications next week. Nobody should stress about missing tryouts, and nobody should change their travel plans.
As we work to finalize plans on our side, we will follow the rink’s lead regarding restrictions and guidelines. This may include wearing masks to the rink, limiting the number of people in the building, and other safety measures. USA Hockey has also published some guidance regarding returning to the rink.
Please continue to stay safe. We are getting closer to all being at our 2nd Home again, and we’re looking forward to seeing you all very soon.
Regarding Spring Hockey : We communicated last week that we had decided to cancel our 2020 Spring League Program.
Refunds are still being processed. For most of you, those refunds will be made to the debit or credit card used during the registration process. If you do not see your refund by 06-10, please email our treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please stay safe and healthy.
