Return to Play 2021
Good morning parents,  

We are pleased to discuss the proposed return to play for TCDMHA hockey after the Ontario government shut down. Expecting that recreation will open again, mid-February, TCDMHA executive have been working towards a revised framework for return to play.

What's different?

Chatsworth arenas are removing their ice, so we are going to use some ice in Markdale.

Fewer ice times in Markdale mean that each team will be reduced to 1 ice time per week.

Coaches will be reaching out with your new ice time, and they will be asking if you intend to return to hockey this year. We respect that many things have changed including the location and frequency of hockey this year. We respect your decision to withdraw from the rest of the season, but we ask that you let us know so that we can predict numbers/interest.

 

What's the same or similar?

Very similar rules with regard to health protocols in the Markdale arena. We will send out an email to all parents regarding any differences that you need to know.

We will allow exhibition-type competition against other clubs as long as they are within the previous guidelines defined before the shutdown.


Secondly, the TCDMHA executive has voted to not charge the third payment for this hockey season. 

This will be implemented in 2 ways: 

1. If a parent has not paid the final installment, they will not be asked to. 

2. If a parent has already paid all 3 installments, they will be reimbursed for the third. 

Timeframe for reconciliation of accounts and reimbursement - where required - is yet to be decided. It's safe to say that we will have it accounted for by the end of the 20/21 season.

We thank you sincerely for your continued support,

TCDMHA Executive

Essentially a rural community, the Township of Chatsworth takes its flavour from the farmlands and forests surrounding it. We welcome visitors to stop and visit as you drive through central Grey County. Amalgamated January 1, 2000, the Township of Chatsworth is made up of the former Townships of Holland and Sullivan and the Village of Chatsworth. The Township population is approximately 8,000 in an area of 260 square miles. Agriculture is the most predominant industry in the Township. There are also a significant number of sawmills in the township, many operated by the Amish community. Tourism and recreation are a growing industry. The Niagara Escarpment, 6 county forests, numerous conservation areas, inland lakes and major rivers provide plenty of year round activities including hiking, biking, snowmobiling, and cross country skiing.
Township of Georgian Bluffs
Just a few hours from major Ontario cities, Georgian Bluffs is a collection of communities stretching north from Chatsworth to just south of Wiarton. Copper Kettle, Cobble Beach, Slough of Despond, Big Bay, Oxenden, Balmy Beach… these are just some of the names that paint a picture of the Georgian Bluffs canvas along the Georgian Bay Coastal Route.
