COVID-19 latest on Return to Hockey
Submitted By Jessica Tufford on Tuesday, June 16, 2020
Hockey Canada has lifted the national ban on hockey activities.  This is exciting news, but we need to review the details.

We suspect most people have read articles that Hockey Canada has lifted the national ban on hockey activities.  This is exciting news, but we need to review the details.  What this means is they are letting their members, in our case Ontario Women's Hockey Association (OWHA) to work with the local government authorities and health officials to come up with plans to return to hockey.
Chatham Kent Girls Hockey Association co-presidents have listened to OWHA calls, have been connecting with the municipality on potential arena plans and are anxiously waiting to hear some promising news.  
While we wait we have been given the green light to open registration in an attempt to gather information on the numbers of girls still interested in playing girls hockey.  At this point we don't know what this would look like - no costs, no team sizes, what the competition level might be or the structure.  Our focus will be on health and safety while trying to get back to some form of hockey.
If you have ideas on how hockey could move forward - respecting the 6 feet apart physical distancing and limiting potential transmission of germs - we would be happy to hear and potentially even share with OWHA.
Please keep your eye on the website for when we open pre-registration later this week and be sure to share with all your friends and family.  If you are looking for further details, you can always go to the website for the latest details.
