COVID-19 Update
Submitted By Barb Esbaugh on Tuesday, April 21, 2020
Dear Twin Centre Minor Hockey families,

I would like to start by wishing that everyone is staying safe and well in these unprecedented times due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Thank you to all those on the front lines, helping to save lives, treat health concerns, maintain essential services and demonstrate social distancing to keep our community safe.  We exist as an association to provide an environment for all our participants to play organized minor hockey with the main focus being the health and safety of all TCMHA hockey members and their families. 

Many changes have happened since this crisis started: daily life for all has changed as well as the abrupt end of the 2019-2020 hockey season before it was officially completed. 

Your TCMHA board held our first “virtual” meeting and one of the main topics of discussion was around how we could recognize and celebrate the hockey season in a way we have done so in the past during our annual hockey banquet.  The option for an in-person banquet does not exist today with everything going on around us, but your executive feels it is still very important that we recognize and celebrate all our teams, players, families and volunteers.  A hockey season is long and there are so many people involved to make it a success for all of the children participating.  To that end, we will be reaching out to this year’s coaches to pull together a team summary so that we can organize a “virtual recognition” for all of our teams.  Details will follow on the timing for this virtual recognition. 

Shifting focus to the upcoming 2020-2021 hockey season, TCMHA will continue to take direction on the resumption of hockey related activities from OMHA and Hockey Canada.  Plans around our TCMHA Annual General Meeting will also be worked out over the coming weeks and a venue (virtual or in-person) will be decided on given the current situation.  We will be planning and making decisions for next year’s season as needed so that when we can return to hockey, we are prepared and ready to do so.

Your executive is also working on a “Welcome Back to Hockey” event that we are beginning to plan that would occur at the start of the 2020-2021 hockey season.

On behalf of our Twin Centre Minor Hockey Association board, I wish you and your extended families continued health and that all stay safe and well.

Yours sincerely,

David Dienesch
Twin Centre Minor Hockey Association
