Upcoming Season 20\21
Attention Blackhawk Families, 
We appreciate everyone is anxious to hear when hockey will start, what rosters and programming will look like and how we will navigate next steps!  

With Sarnia recently opening registration, inquiries and emails have doubled. We can assure our members, we have been working diligently to ensure a safe return to hockey.

Our PEMAA “Return to Play Plan” has been sent off to OMHA for approval. We are anticipating a decision following the next Village Council meeting, around the date the facility will be able to reopen, hours of operation, ice rental fees etc  these decisions will direct and impact our planning around registration and ability to meet the needs of our development/inter squad programming for each age group.

Hockey like most everything else, will undoubtedly look different this season. At this time, there is no LMLL, Alliance, Shamrock league play, no crossing public health boundaries to face other centres, no OMHA tournaments or play downs...indeed, there are more questions than answers. 

We do know, OMHA supports development programming and inter squad 3 on 3 or 4 on 4 play/scrimmages in respective age groupings.

We appreciate your patience, flexibility and support as we work through the many intricacies and challenges ahead.

Our Blackhawk families remain our priority... in particular, their safety and well being.
