Good Day Parents,
We hope that everyone is staying safe. We would like to thank you for your patience as we sort through the refunds. As you can appreciate we need to look at every team and division to see what the refund will be. It all takes time and patience to ensure that we are providing the fairest refund. There are many things to take into account and we have done the best job possible to provide our parents with the appropriate refund.
The House League from IP to Midget is now in process and will be completed over the next few weeks. We have over 600 players in our association and it takes time to sort through them all from looking up a players parents name to a mailing address. But, we are working on it for you.
Please continue to have patience and you will receive a refund over the next few weeks.
With respect to the AGM we currently don't have any updates on that but as your are aware the AGM will not take place as usually scheduled in June. We will update the website as soon as we have more information. Hockey Canada is working on a plan to return to ice as you have heard in the news. Once we have a concrete format we will roll that out to the parents as well.
We do not have a jersey return date as of today but the rink will not be opened until July so we are unable to accept them yet, but as soon as we can we will look at a logistical plan to receive them. Please ensure that they are washed and ready for drop off in the near future.
Thank you in advance for your continued patience.
Congratulations to the 2020 GRADS!!!!!!
CBR Minor Hockey would like to congratulate all the 2020 Graduates of Queen Elizabeth and Holy Spirit High Schools. We wish you all the best in your future adventures. Make the most of this difficult time and create your lasting memories.
March 23, 2020
It has been a week since Hockey Canada made the unprecedented decision to end the 2019/2020 hockey season. Over the past week both the Federal and Provincial governments have made widespread decisions to “flatten the curve”. As a result, all minor hockey associations have respected the call for social distancing by closing their offices and not meeting or carrying on business in person.
We have been fielding questions about refunds, payments, lotteries and jersey/equipment return. Until the restrictions around social distancing are relaxed associations will not be in position to meet about finances related to the 2019/2020 hockey season. Assistance with lottery licenses is being sought from the Provincial Government. Hockey Newfoundland & Labrador recommends that the collection of jerseys and equipment be delayed until social distancing is relaxed. In the meantime wash your jerseys and store them in a safe place. Goalie equipment should be clean, dry and stored away for at least 30 days.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding. When new information becomes available we will share it with you.
Cheques to be cashed/House League Update
If you have received a cheque from CBRMHA can you please ensure that you have your cheque cashed as soon as possible so that it can be cleared out of the bank for the May 31, 2020 year end. It would be greatly appreciated.
Notice for House League
We once again thank you for your patience. Just an update, House League review is almost finalized and we will be posting a notice regarding the process for a credit if required in the coming days.
Thank you from the office of CBRMHA
We would like to give you an update on the refunds for the interrupted hockey season. Currently we have been working on the ALL Star Teams. These have been finalized.
We are also reviewing the House League Program and a further update on that will come soon.
We would like to thank everyone for their patience and when we have further information regarding Hockey we will pass it along to you.
Thank you in advance for your patience as we work through the finalizing the programs.
Hockey NL Frequently Asked Questions
as a Result of the Cancellation of the 2019-2020 Season
Due to Covid-19
If there is a change, will you re-start the 2019-20 season?
Unfortunately, the 2019-20 season is cancelled.
What are sanctioned activities?
Sanctioned activities include all games, playoffs, try-outs, practices, camps, high performance programs, team activities, and Provincial, Regional, and National Championships.
What does “until further notice” mean?
The 2019-20 season is cancelled. The cancellation may extend beyond 2019-20. The Hockey Canada Board will decide when sanctioned hockey will resume in Canada.
Does the cancellation of the season also mean our team can’t practice?
All practices are cancelled.
Does the cancellation of the season also mean a parent/coach can’t rent the ice for a group?
Yes, all activities must stop.
Does the cancellation of the season also mean our team can’t fundraise?
All fundraisers are cancelled.
Does the cancellation mean we can’t have a year-end banquet or team social?
Unfortunately, you can’t hold either of these types of events.
Does the cancellation of the season also mean an association, league or team executive are prohibited from meeting?
Yes, all activities are cancelled at this time. If meetings need to occur, they would have to be done by conference call, video, or WebEx.
Does this impact all hockey participants in Canada?
No, it only impacts participants who are registered through Hockey Canada and Hockey NL.
What does this mean for non-sanctioned hockey?
Non-sanctioned and Private Hockey operates outside of Hockey Canada’s bylaws and regulations. If they continue to operate, they would be doing so of their own accord. There is no insurance or liability coverage for any coach, player or official who participates in non-sanctioned hockey. Game officials must remove both Hockey NL and Hockey Canada Crests.
What does this mean for Adult Recreation hockey?
All Adult Recreation Hockey teams that register with Can-Lan will also cease to operate for the remainder of the season. Adult Recreation Hockey teams that are not affiliated with Can-Lan would fall under the non-sanctioned hockey category.
What does this mean for Hockey NL High Performance Program?
Hockey NL has closed the registration for High Performance Programs and will communicate directly to those registrants in relation to their fees. Any interested participant who did not register before the close, will have an opportunity to register should it be safe, allowed and feasible to have a program sometime this year.
What does this mean for Hockey Canada Atlantic Regional Championships next year?
All provinces who were scheduled to host the 2020 Championships will now host the 2021 Championships.
Are associations and teams permitted to collect jerseys?
We recommend that any equipment being returned MUST be washed and cleaned prior to return. You consider that at this time to reduce contact with other people and the risk of disease spread, you make a list of who has what jersey and have a return time once the crisis has abated.
Are associations permitted to collect goaltender equipment?
We suggest that people clean, dry and store the gear away for a period of at least thirty (30) days to ensure that there is no transmission to another individual. You also consider making a list and have a return once the crisis has abated.
Notice from Hockey Canada
AN OPEN LETTER TO CANADIANS
First, and most importantly, to the front-line and essential workers who have gone above and beyond around the clock to keep Canadians safe – a simple thank you is not nearly enough for what you have done over the last three months.
Second, to our Members, partners, local hockey associations, volunteers and fans across Canada, thank you for keeping the spirit of hockey alive. Unprecedented times have called for unprecedented efforts at every level of the game.
As provinces and territories phase in a plan to reopen in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are questions about when hockey will return, and how it will look when it does.
Hockey Canada and its Members are diligently working on a multifaceted return-to-hockey plan that will happen when, and only when, provincial and territorial governments and health authorities deem it safe to do so.
This plan includes everything from health and safety regulations to communications, seasonal structure, customer engagement and national teams.
As the return-to-hockey plan progresses, it will do so at different speeds, and at different times, across the country, based on direction from health authorities. And the game will look different, that much we do know. We ask for patience as we continue to work towards ensuring hockey plays its role in bringing the sports community back.
The health and safety of everyone involved in the game will determine when we return, not our desire to get back on the ice. When our country is ready, Hockey Canada will be ready. Until then, continue to follow the guidelines set by your provincial and territorial government to help limit the spread of COVID-19. Only by working together will we be able to make a difference and safely return.
For more information and regular updates, please visit hockeycanada.ca/returntohockey.
Thank you for your passion and dedication to our game, and we hope to see you around the rink as soon as possible.
