Dear Blackhawk Families,
As you can imagine, throughout the past several weeks, we have been working frantically behind the scenes, to ensure our players, their families, our Coaches and Volunteers are able to safely return to hockey.
We are pleased to announce, our PEMAA Return to Play Framework has been just been approved by OMHA! It is ready for our players, their families and our volunteers to read and digest.
We would like to thank former Villager and Blackhawk Parent, Harold Chadwick from Sarnia Minor Hockey Association for his ongoing guidance and insight, the Village Staff for their efforts and collaboration in developing and releasing their facility reopening plan, our Board of Directors for their hours upon hours of input, oversight and problem solving and in particular, we wish to thank our newly appointed, sleep deprived COVID Communications Officer, Rob Shortreed.
This document has been through several edits and changes since its initial rendition. Please take great care reading and processing the voluminous information. Be assured, we are mindful it may be a bit overwhelming at first glance.
We encourage you to keep a list of questions, there will be an opportunity for a virtual membership meeting to ask questions and gain clarity. Smaller team meetings will eventually be an option as well. Please do not immediately begin sending questions along, our plan is to continue to roll out information as soon as it becomes available.
Now that our plan is approved, we are able to obtain our certificate of insurance and move forward with completing registration and communicating plans as they unfold.
We sincerely appreciate your patience and support throughout this process.
The one constant has been: more questions than answers!
Please continue to check your website and Facebook pages for regular updates and programming information.
All in this together,
Liz Page for,
PEMAA Board of Directors
