Lockdown Update
Submitted By EGMHA Webmaster (JM) on Monday, February 1, 2021
EGMHA wants to ensure members that even though we are still currently in lockdown, we are hoping that we will get back on the ice this season. 

Once we have a better understanding of what public health protocols will allow as restrictions are lifted in York Region, then we will be able to communicate what to expect from the program for the remainder of the season.

As many may of heard, some of our neighbour hockey associations have had to cancel the rest of the season, as their Town has pulled out their ice. We have been fortunate that the Town of East Gwillimbury has indicated they are planning to keep the ice in until late April. It is our intent, that when it is safe, that we would return to the ice and play as long as we can into April, as we believe that getting our players back on the ice is important for their overall physical and mental health.


As well as working with our Town, we are also continuing to work with our governing hockey organizations and hope to provide more of an update later this month of what is being planned for next season. At this point, it has been confirmed that all tryouts for every level and age division will be postponed until the fall. OHF and OMHA are convening working groups to plan the 2021-22 season calendar, and we have volunteered to be part of that group. We are waiting confirmation from OMHA to see if we will be included in that work going forward.

Once again, any refunds will not be issued until the end of the season and will be prorated. 

We know that the past several months have been more trying for our families than ever before during this pandemic, and we hope you are all staying safe.  We miss seeing our Eagles on the ice and look forward to hopefully seeing them hit the ice soon.

In closing, on behalf of our entire executive, we thank all our members for their patience during this period. Please continue to monitor our website for updates which will be provided as new announcements are communicated from the Province and/or York Region public health units.
