Update On Try Outs

Good Morning,

I hope everyone is enjoying the warm weather. I am emailing to share some exciting updates with our ECHO families.  The Governor has categorized Ice Hockey as a "Higher Risk" Sport. As a result, the Governor has ordered a two-step phase-in of specific activities as follows:

1. Beginning with 'Part 1' of Phase-2: (starting June 17, 2020), higher risk sports are allowed to perform only the following (25 kids):

A. Camps
B. Individual or group training
C. Controlled practices

2. 'Part 2' of Phase-2: (After July 6, 2020. That equates to JULY 7, 2020) expands upon the items listed above to include the following activities (50 Kids):

A. Scrimmages, games, matches, etc...
B. Tournaments allowed after July 6, 2020 (no satellite fields)

 

IMPORTANT:

The State shutdown the rinks/facilities (not CHC, not USA Hockey). The State has provided the process to re-open. Therefore:

  • Rinks/Facilities have 100% control & responsibility for all activities on their properties.  

We will be sending out the procedures/protocols for the rink to the people that register for the clinics and again before try-outs. The procedures/protocols may change from phase 1 to phase 2 and we will keep people up to date.

 

Clinics:

We have secured LIMITED ice at Champions (Cromwell Rink) for pre try-out clinics.  The cost will be $10 per session. When you register we will send out the procedures for the rink and forms that will need to be completed. Jun 26th,June 29TH, July 3rd  we have limited ice, Please only register for one of those nights so everyone can have a chance to get back on the ice. If we have open spots we will send out a communication to members that there is room.
These clinics are not required!

If you didn’t register, please do so now.
