July 6, 2020…just updated
Hello! It’s been very tough the Covid 19 Pandemic on the hockey community. I’ve been very quiet and just patiently waiting to hear / see how hockey will open up again. It’s going to be a while for sure until hockey normalizes. In light of the current environment I do have some positive and disappointing news to share.
Firstly, the city rink in Waterloo is now open to training for small groups of 10 players and that includes the instructors. And Kitchener will be open on July 20th, 2020. I’m one of the only instructor locally who has the certification, business number and insurance through Hockey Canada and the Ontario Hockey Federation to train groups. As a Licenced operator with these organizations I have required safety measure I have to follow to run the ice sessions. All the details will be found in the Drop In Page here
Secondly, I have to cancel all full day and half day hockey camps scheduled for August. The City of Kitchener and Goderich have cancelled my contracts due to Covid 19 Pandemic and the new guideline / regulation measures currently in place. There will be no dressing rooms available and the use of the facilities with its restrictions won’t make full day and half day camps possible. Details on credits / refunds for camps are posted on the summer camp page.Currently the reopening of indoor arenas has been identified in Phase 3 of the Province of Ontario’s Reopening Plan. Kind regards, Eric
