Association Update – Intent to Register

The Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association (GGHA) Executive is keeping informed of day-to-day changes to rules and regulations as the situation in the Covid 19 pandemic evolves.  Despite these efforts, we are not able to forecast with any confidence, the start of the 2020/2021 Hockey Season nor can we define how the season will be structured for our Rocket families.  We know that hockey is especially important to parents and players alike, and the uncertainty surrounding so many things in recent and coming months is adding an extra layer of challenge to an already difficult time.

Hockey Canada continues to confirm that here are no Hockey Canada sanctioned activities (on and off ice) being conducted at this time.  This same message was amplified by Ontario Women’s Hockey Association in their June 10, 2020 bulletin, in which they include the framework for return to Hockey.  This is the policy framework that will govern GGHA in our return to hockey once we are given the approval to do so.

With that, the GGHA Executive is diligently planning for the 2020/2021 Hockey Season and have opened registration for anyone wishing to play with GGHA in the 2020-21 season.  This year, the registration process slightly different, as we are simply asking our Rocket families to provide “intent to register”.  We will not be collecting any deposits or payments due to the uncertainty surrounding the upcoming hockey season.

We urge all of you to take care and stay safe,

The GGHA Executive
