January 14 - Return to Competition - Phase 5

January 4 Return to Play Rules

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.   

We have received guidance as far as returning to practice on January 4.  Please review the following documents for specific guidance.

COVID-19 Preparedness Planning

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!
