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.
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,
