SBMHA refund statement

St Boniface Minor Hockey Association

February 9, 2021

Dear SBMHA Members,

Due to the cancellation of the 2020/21 season by Hockey Winnipeg, registration fees paid to SBMHA in the fall will be refunded to members on or around April 30th, net of amounts retained by our governing bodies (Hockey Winnipeg, Hockey Manitoba and Hockey Canada), and certain operating costs incurred by SBMHA up until the shutdown. Our Treasurer will calculate refunds for each family and will consolidate by team and make lump sum payments to the team accounts. The team managers will then distribute refunds to families from there.

If your child plays for a Railcats or a WEFH team, your refunds will be distributed by those associations.

We are encouraging teams to commence training activities as soon as it is deemed safe by the province. Any ice rental or other costs associated with operating team training will run through the team accounts.

We thank you in advance for your patience. This will be a large undertaking and it will take a significant amount of time.

-SBMHA Executive

 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 

Hockey Winnipeg Directive Cancelling 2020-2021 Season

Hockey Winnipeg Directive Cancelling 2020-2021 Season link

Unfortunately, the date has come that Hockey Winnipeg has made the difficult decision that having a viable season is no longer possible. The current restrictions are in place until at the earliest Feb. 13th, many arenas have or will soon remove ice, and the logistic of scheduling a season, not knowing what the next week will bring, is just not possible.
 
They are not saying that if the provincial health directives change, and centres and arenas are allowed to open that we cannot have players on the ice, just that there won't be a formal season. As indicated, Hockey Winnipeg is committed to supporting us with this.
 
Any refunds need to be coordinated with HWPG, SBMHA and TMHA so we appreciate your patience with this. We will also be working with the teams to refund any money collected that hasn't been spent.
 
The WEFH board would like to thank all of coaches, players, families and volunteers for supporting us in what we hope is a unique year. We hope everyone stays healthy and safe and we will see you on the ice as soon as possible!
 
As always, we welcome any questions and comments.
 
Teri, Jacquie and the WEFH board
 

HOCKEY WINNIPEG DIRECTIVE – DECEMBER 15 2020

Hockey Winnipeg and its member Minor Hockey Associations are committed to providing quality hockey programs in 2021, in a manner that is safe and responsible.  Hockey Winnipeg is currently planning a number of different approaches to hockey in 2021 with the goal of implementation under various levels of restrictions that may be in place from the Manitoba Provincial Government.  Once hockey receives approval to re-enter return to play and Hockey Winnipeg receives approval from our governing bodies – Hockey Manitoba and Sport Manitoba – we will return to the ice as soon as is reasonably possible.  While we do not know what the next few weeks hold, it is our intention to begin this program implementation as soon as possible following the lifting of restrictions.

Hockey Winnipeg would like to remind our members that the health and safety of our entire community is of the greatest importance at this time.  By complying with the current restrictions we can all play a part in the return of hockey and many other valuable activities.  Over the next few weeks outdoor hockey rinks and frozen lakes will be available for use. We encourage everyone to be physically active but must remind our members that organized team activities on these surfaces are strictly prohibited by public health orders.  Any violation of the Public Health Act and specifically Order #12 (or any other relevant orders) will not only result in enforcement from the Province of Manitoba but Hockey Winnipeg may take additional disciplinary action as well.

Hockey Winnipeg would like to wish all of our members a Merry Christmas, a safe holiday season and a Happy New Year.  We look forward to dropping the puck in 2021!

Ian McArton

Executive Director, Hockey Winnipeg

Hockey Paused

In light of the recent news from the Provincial Health Authorities and Winnipeg moving to code Red restrictions Monday, WEFH believes it is in the best interest of our players, coaches, parents, friends, neighbours that we proactively take measures and suspend our program effective immediately.

While we all hoped that this day wouldn't come, we expect everyone to act with all of Manitoba's best interests in mind.

We look forward to the announcement that we are resuming the season's activities once things are under control with the pandemic.

Sincerely,

Teri Moffatt and Jacquie Sippola

Message from Hockey Winnipeg

From Hockey Winnipeg:

 

Good Afternoon,

 

I have been inundated with questions about the new directive from Dr. Roussin and Manitoba Health that is set to take effect on Monday.  I have spoken to Peter Woods at Hockey Manitoba who is following up with the Province to get a definitive answer regarding sanctioned hockey programs. I should have that information at some point today and I will share it with you all as soon as I can.

 

For the time being, sanctioned hockey activities are good to continue.  It is important that we are adhering to the guidelines this weekend.  Masks must be worn at all times.  Pre-screening is essential. Players must adhere to the guidelines of arrival and departure times. Sanitization and distancing practices are vital.  Players need to be arriving with as much equipment on as possible to limit time in the dressing rooms. 1 parent per participant should be the standard.

 

As soon as I have additional information from Hockey Manitoba regarding the impact of this directive I will pass it on to all of you.

 

Regards,

Ian McArton

Executive Director, Hockey Winnipeg
