UpdatedThursday June 17, 2021 byHMBHL.

 

We hope your family and friends are staying safe and in good health and spirits.

Thank you for your commitment to the league during these difficult times.

With the ending of the Provincial Government lockdown, the Province of Ontario has now entered a three-step process for re-opening. The league has been reviewing the steps and hoping that ball hockey can played later during the summer months.

At the present time, the league may be able to commence playing games after the Government moves to Step 3 later in July. The specifics are not known at this time (other than Indoor sports with capacity limits will be permitted) but the league hopes to receive in-depth information to update the membership.

The league will be monitoring developments during Step 1 and hopes to continue to receive more information as progression is made to Step 2 and Step 3 of the re-opening phase. The HMBHL will be providing more information as we receive clear updates from the City of Hamilton and Public Health Authorities.

The league has been in communication with the City of Hamilton, and we will always make sure that we receive the complete and accurate information before we communicate to our membership in order that everyone receives the proper information.

The safety and health of all the participants, staff, families, and friends are the highest priority, and the league has been and will always follow the guidance of Public Health authorities.

The Hamilton Minor Ball Hockey League (HMBHL) is a member of the Ontario Ball Hockey Federation (OBHF). The OBHF is a member of the Canadian Ball Hockey Association (CBHA). The CBHA is an Associate Member and Partner of Hockey Canada.

The OBHF has worked in conjunction along with the Ontario Government as one of its recognized Provincial Sport Organizations (PSO) to ensure the safety of all Players, Coaches, Officials, Administrators and Volunteers are the focus of the plans and decision making. The OBHF, along with guidance from the CBHA (the National Governing Body for ball hockey) and Hockey Canada (the National Sport Organization (NSO) for hockey) is focused on making the return to ball hockey safe and is committed to enhancing the experience of ball hockey for all members.

Please stay safe and healthy and look forward to seeing everyone at the arena in the future to enjoy the sport of ball hockey.
