An update from our President on Session 2
Submitted By jcampbell on Wed 09 30, 20
This weekend, all players will be put on a team. Starting Oct. 6 we will have games to see if teams are even in caliber and if we need to reset and divide. Please be aware that your player may be moved to another team. The following week we hope to have everyone set on a team for the session.

How this session will work

We will start our CHIP program with only the players who played last season. This was a difficult decision but for the safety of our players and volunteers we need to run the program where the kids can skate and already know the program. With social distancing, having new skaters on the ice will be difficult. We will look forward to seeing the new players next season!

Novice will be Skills and Drills for two sessions each week. They will practice in their group of 25. Normally Novice players have no games until December. We will revisit this division for session 3.

Atom to Midget will be either 3-on-3 or 4-on-4 depending on the numbers on each team. Your player will still have two practices a week with their A or B team and 1 game. The exception will be Peewee as that division is full with five teams.

- Games will be two, 22 minute periods with refs
- Penalties will be awarded with a penalty shot. Depending on fraction can be 1-3.
- There will be no face offs
Goals scored - team will leave offensive zone to allow opposing team to bring puck out
- Suspensions will continue to be calculated and sent to the OMHA

Due to the restrictions from the government and public health the maximum capacity in the facility is 50. This is not a WBMHA or Town of Wasaga Beach rule. The WBMHA has to follow this strict rule in order to run our programs. Once we allow spectators it will be only one parent/guardian per child. This should allow for all players on game day to have a spectator. Spectators will only be allowed in the facility at start of game time and must leave the facility immediately at end of buzzer. If we can not follow this rule we will not be able to have parents/guardians in the facility.

Practices will be difficult to keep the numbers below 50. Until your division gets the go ahead, we must keep all parents/guardians on the premises in your vehicle while your player is practicing.

Please read the Return to Play Framework for WBMHA players posted on our website on Aug. 28,2020.

If you have any questions contact myself.

WBMHA President
