President's Update
Submitted By Rick Stevens on Monday, October 5, 2020
Hello players and Parents,

We have three pads up and running in the Town of Orangeville.
(Alder Red, Alder Green and Tony Rose A)

The schedules for all our players are being worked on. With the daily changes, it is making this a little harder than usual this year. Please be patient.

The competitive practice schedule is complete up to October 17. 

The non-competitive practice schedule will be completed by Tuesday evening. Practices start this Saturday for most of the HL divisions. The coaches or Directors of each division will be reaching out to the families this week.

Protocol Reminder...

check in at the table in the lobby,
players can enter the arena 15 minutes prior to the start of the ice time,
players come dressed, helmet and skates can be put on in the arena.
players must wear masks until they put on their helmet,
players leave the arena as directed by the coach,
if you are not feeling well, stay home, do not enter the arena,


wear a mask,
check in at the table in the lobby,
only one parent per player in the arena,
no siblings,

parents must leave the arena as soon as the ice time ends, do not hang around inside,
parents are being asked to wait outside until the ice time starts for your child,
Red arena - parents are to stand six feet apart in the designated area.

if you are not feeling well, stay home, do not enter the arena,

These processes are subject to change at anytime, please watch for our updates.

We truly ask that you obey these rules. The town is counting people and we certainly would not want to lose our ice times due to a group not obeying the rules.

We all heard that the GTHL has stopped their hockey program until January. If we all do our part we may be able to play hockey throughout the entire season.

I want to thank those people who have offered to assist us and sign in our players and parents at the check in tables. It's people like you that help us run our programs.

The game schedules are next to work on. We are just waiting for approval from the OMHA and the Health Unit.

Thank you,

Rick Stevens
