Cancellation Notice, Holiday Break & New Year Programming
Submitted By Sarah Geer on Sunday, December 13, 2020
Hello Bears Families,

By now, you should have received notice from your coaches and managers in regards to this upcoming week starting Mon, Dec 14th.......

THIS WEEK Dec. 14th - 18th 2020 (bad news)
Over the last two days, we have received conflicting documentation from the PHU, OMHA as well as arenas.  PHU wants us to have 10 on the ice including coaches and OMHA allows for 12 (including 2 coaches).  Arenas do not have meetings for further direction until Mon/Tues so we will not receive any solid information until then to move forward.  We will also struggle with splitting ice times fairly among all teams throughout the week.  Timelines are tight and there are a lot of moving parts to make sure we are accommodating everyone and complying with protocol.  We are hoping to gain this one ice time per team in March as we are looking to extend the season as far as we can as playoffs will not take place.
 
Therefore, the board has made a unanimous vote to cancel ice time for this week ONLY (Dec 14th - Dec 18th)
 

WINTER BREAK - DEC 19th - JAN 3rd
 

JANUARY 4th, 2021 (good news)
The board has come up with a RED plan so that we can continue providing programming based on the parameters we are given.  Once we have solid information from PHU, OMHA and arenas, we can then present the programming to coaches on Wednesday at our coaches meeting.  We will discuss, answer questions and take feedback at that time.  Once we have finalized the programming that night, we will provide it to you the next day so you can understand what we are able to offer.

I hope you were able to enjoy this past weekend.  I know players have shown great growth and hope they have enjoyed their time since September.  Thank you to all coaches, managers, arena staff, players, families and the Board for everyone's hard work, compliance and positive energy. We will be in touch near the end of the week for Part Two!  :)
