An Update on the Fall 2021 Season
We are still slightly behind the minimum number of skaters we’d need to field a minimum of 3 teams in each tier. The minimum number of skaters we’d need to field 3 teams in each tier is 30 skaters and 3 goalies. Our registration numbers as of Tuesday August 31st are as follows:
Tier A – 13 (2 goalie)
Tier B – 27 (3 goalie)
Tier C – 27 (2 goalie)
Tier D – 13 (2 goalie)
Tier W – 24 (2 goalie)
Tier 40 – 22 (1 goalie)
Given that the board elected to go with a 10 game season instead of a 12 game season before we opened registration, we have elected to postpone the start of the season by an additional week in an attempt to get enough skaters registered to field 3 teams in each tier. This will be the last postponement.
If we do not receive more registrants, the Fall season WILL proceed with two tiers: a competitive tier combining Tier A and Tier B registrants, and a noncompetitive/fun tier combining Tier C and Tier D registrants. Tier 40 and Tier W registrants can choose to move to one of those tiers, or opt for a refund. In addition, if you’re registered and not willing to play in one of the proposed combined tiers, you can request a refund. IF we get enough additional registrants to field our minimum 3 teams in the tiers, we’ll progress as a normal season.
The new season start date will be September 26th Please note, the season will still end at the normal time and playoffs will happen as normal. This is just a delay in the season start date to allow more people the chance to sign up.
So, for those of you who haven’t registered yet, now is the time! For those of you who have friends in your tiers that are on the fence, this is your window to go convince them to sign up! For any questions, please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org
Locker Room Update –
The EOC has approved our request to use the locker rooms during the season. The same rules as last year are in effect, with the following rules added in regards to locker room usage:
• The locker room key must be checked out to unlock the locker room, and returned by the last person to exit.
• Locker room max capacity is 15 people.
• Can enter locker room 15 minutes before game start, and must leave within 15 minutes of game close.
• Masks must be worn at all times.
• Shower rooms are to remain closed and unused.
Thanks and hope to see you on the ice!
