We have received a directive from MN Hockey that has detailed that the pause includes ANY and ALL team get togethers including:
Any association, team, or coach that fails to follow these directives will be subject to severe sanctions to the team, coach, and possibly EVHA. This can include suspension or fines.
Please understand that this pause is intended to ensure we are able to complete the rest of the season so there are no exceptions to these rules.
Please review the below letter from MN Hockey President, Steven Oleheiser, discussing the seriousness of this pause:
We need your assistance to ensure we can complete our season…. Thus far, hockey has been considered the "gold standard" on following the guidance... thank you for your cooperation.
Stay Safe/Stay Healthy
The EVHA Board appreciates our members: parents and players, coaches, and others that support EVHA.
By having each member of EVHA ensure we follow the safety protocols, we will send a strong message of leadership toward our goal to continue the development of our skaters through practice and game situations as part of Minnesota Hockey. Our ability to be flexible with the ongoing changes will be another major factor that contributes to our success.
Thank you for supporting the great game of hockey as we work through the season!
(Please note, EVHA's guidelines and policy may be more comprehensive and restrictive than any one rink.)
We are committed to conducting a safe and healthy season this year. We continue to need your help and cooperation. Please review the following information regarding team gatherings (Season is at risk), locker room closures, and COVID communication details.
