Update on EGMHA Modified Stage 2 Programs
Submitted By EGMHA Webmaster (JM) on Monday, October 19, 2020
We would like to extend our appreciation to our hockey families this season, especially since the provincial government announced York Region would be returning to a modified Stage 2 in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. We appreciate everyone's efforts to adhere to the protocols in place to keep our hockey community safe during these uncertain times. 

While minor hockey was not shut down, nor named in this roll back (other than to not allow scrimmages or games), the amount of EGMHA players and volunteers permitted on ice at any given time were directly impacted by this decision to return to modified Stage 2, and we announced yesterday that we had no choice but to pause our programming  during this time. 

We did commit in our Town Hall held on Sunday night that we would be continuing our discussions with the Town of East Gwillimbury to look at different scenarios to allow ice sessions to resume. We are very thankful to Town of East Gwillimbury for working with us in a situation which is continuing evolving. As a result of our meeting this afternoon, we are very grateful to be able to say that with thanks to a discount from the Town on on our ice expenses, we will be able to move forward with programming during the next 28 days.  


We expect by mid-week to have players back on the ice. We ask everyone to please be patient while we work over the next 24 hours to make some adjustments to our divisions and team structures, as we are restricted to 8 players on the ice at a time. We will have coaches get in touch with you, once we have set new times going forward. You can expect that your player will receive one practice/week over the next month. 

For U18 we are pausing during this time but plan to ensure the missed time is made up through the remainder of the season. 


Please note that no refunds will be considered during this time, as we intend to continue with our program and are looking at options for extending our back-end to the season, to ensure families are receiving value for their money in our program, as we move forward. Again, we thank you for your support and understanding as we navigate through this very fluid situation.
