We hope all families and friends are staying safe and healthy.
Thank you for your commitment to the Hamilton Minor Ball Hockey League. In follow up to the previous update communicated to the membership regarding the spring league and potential summer league, the league thanks you for your continued support.
Unfortunately, as the City of Hamilton facilities are presently closed and may not re-open during the summer months, the league has been unable to have a 2020 season of ball hockey. The safety and health of all the participants, staff, families, and friends are the highest priority.
Further to our previous communication, the league had offered some options and thank you in advance for the many replies.
As per previous update, the league has been able to keep your registration on file a full credit for the 2021 season, have your spot secured for 2021 and not be subjected to any 2021 price increases.
As per previous update, the league was able to cancel the registration with an email request sent to the league and a refund and cancellation of the registration being processed.
If you have your full credit in place for the 2021 season, your spot will be secured and not be subjected to any price increases. The Province of Ontario has entered stage two of the re-opening phase and potentially could enter stage three in the future. If the City of Hamilton decides to open facilities during the summer and allow for small gatherings to take place, the league may be able to provide a free training clinic for those that have a full credit for 2021.
The league has created a Play Safe Manual to coincide with returning to play sports which is currently being updated and will be provided to our membership and online. The Play Safe Manual will cover all categories including Pre-Season, Pre-Game, In-Game, Post-Game and Post-Season Protocols that the league will follow ensuring a safe and healthy environment for all of the players, families, staff and officials.
The league will be continuing to monitor and assess the situation, with the guidance of public health authorities and our sport’s governing authorities. The league will keep you up to date of any further changes. Updates are also posted on the league website at www.hamiltonballhockey.com and as many members are aware, the league has been committed to replying to any member inquiries in a timely manner via email.
The Hamilton Minor Ball Hockey League hopes that all participants, staff and their families and friends remain healthy and safe during these difficult times.
We all miss sports but are committed to making sure the return to sports is safe for everyone involved.
Thank you for your patience, understanding and support.
