Return to Play Update
Submitted By Executive on Wednesday, September 2, 2020
COLDWATER MINOR HOCKEY FAMILIES

Hockey will look different to us this year due to the Covid 19 Pandemic.  The executive has been following the direction, guidance and recommendations of Hockey Canada, the OHF and OMHA along with the Local Health Unit to determine or Return to Play Plan.
The goal is to have a minimum one practice and one game per week. We will provide similar ice times per team as in previous years.

*Leagues will be capped at 50 playersEach age group/division will become its own league
*The teams will be a maximum of 10 players, 9 skaters and a goalie
*Games will be 3 vs 3 or 4vs 4 (rules are set out by the OMHA)




*Teams will be a balanced mix of players and there may be some movement of players up or down to balance division numbers.
*Registration is still open in all divisions.
*Masks/Face coverings will be worn by all entering the arena until you access the ice.
*All players are asked to bring their own water bottle filled at home. (filling stations will be unavailable)All participants will be asked to sanitize hands upon entry to the arena.

Our season will begin September 12th at the North Simcoe Sports and Recreation Centre at 527 Len Self Blvd. Midland ON. 
Please refer to the Coldwater Wildcats website for schedule and updates.
All participants need to follow the link and sign a waiver prior to first skate in Midland as well as fill in the Health Screening Questionnaire on each day of programming before attending the rink.   https://www.midland.ca/NSSRC .
As of right now the arena is not allowing spectators, but this could change as restrictions ease. 
Players must dress at home or outside and there will be chairs for them to tie skates in the lobby. 
As of right now Parents can come in to help tie skates but must immediately leave the arena.

We are continuing to maintain communication with the township as to rules regarding spectators, dressing rooms, washrooms and concession. 
All of these items will be further addressed as we approach the season.  Midland, Severn Township along with the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit and the Provincial Government will provide us with direction to proceed.
As an association we know the value of team sport, camaraderie and fun but we must follow the governing bodies in order to keep everyone safe.  Hockey looks different as does so much of our day to day life since the Covid 19 pandemic began.  We are very grateful to the many people that have worked diligently to get us started.  We will strive to make this a great season.
Sincerely
Brian Zulak
President
