TNT MINOR HOCKEY RETURN TO PLAY UPDATE – AUGUST 12, 2020
Submitted By Webmaster on Thursday, August 13, 2020
On July 29, 2020, the Ontario Hockey Federation, OHF, the governing body of minor hockey in Ontario, released an update to their Return to Hockey Plan.  

This document has outlined four (4) Phases for return to play.   
The OHF’s Return to Hockey Framework Stage 3 is an incremental approach for participants to develop essential hockey skills.  We are currently in Phase 2, Stage 3A, and will move to 3B as of September 1.  The full document is on the OHF website: www.ohf.on.ca under the Risk Management tab.  Please note that we are working closely with the Town of New Tecumseth and the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit to ensure the safety of all players, volunteers and families.

Highlights for Return to Play:

-        Players are to register where they played in 2019-20

-        AAA players, NRPs, etc – can opt to return to their home centre if they wish

-        New to hockey players are welcome

-        At this time, there are NO TRYOUTS – all programming is in-house

-        There are no APs or integration with other centres

-        Start of season will be development, followed by modified programming – not traditional 5 on 5 hockey, but 3 on 3 or 4 on 4

-        All programming is in house (no travel or rep).  Programming will be tiered to accommodate differently skilled players, allowing for development for all

-        No body-checking is allowed

-        Teams will consist of 9 players + 1 goalie (goalies MAY need to be shared between teams)

-        Maximum of 50 players/”bubble”

-        Minor and major ages may be combined based on registration numbers as well as rep/hl/ll players may be combined if the registration numbers warrant to ensure a viable program

-        Programming is based on a 4-week cycle

-        NO SPECIAL REQUESTS FOR PLAYERS OR COACHES WILL BE ACCOMMODATED THIS SEASON

 

TNT Minor Hockey Program and registration:

-        Registration will close on September 11 to accommodate the time needed to form teams and get coaches etc.   A waiting list will be kept and we will do our best to ensure all players will get to play

-        Program will begin the week of September 21

-        Registration fees: an update on the first installment will be available shortly

-        Program will run on various days and times – not strictly weekends etc

-        The schedule will change as the program changes and we move through the stages

 

Junior Permission to Skate Requests:

-        more information will be available by end of August – we will post this information on our website once it becomes available

 

Please continue to watch our website as this is our primary source of communication/information sharing.  More information will be posted as we receive it. We anticipate another update being posted next week.  As always, please direct your questions to our Administrator, Lori Wadge at [email protected]

 

 

See you at the rink soon,

 

Donna Horan
