Just an update on a
few things.... our web admin Darryl has been busy working on an online
screening form each player will complete (with assistance from parents
depending upon their level of independence). More info to follow, but each
player must complete their screening form prior to their ice time in order for
us to comply with the Arena Reopening plan and our OMHA approved Return to Play
Framework... there is a possibility we may be able to use an app, (if it is
released in time).
PEMAA will have someone working the door, tracking attendance, ensuring players have submitted their online screening form. We have every confidence our families will be collaborative and cooperative. Again, more information to follow!
Registration costs have been determined and will be structured in three separate manageable payments.
The first payment of $150.00 per player is for October 5- November 8th. Payment will be due the first scheduled ice time your player is slated for during the week of October 5th.
Providing we are able to continue to offer programming without further restrictions or interruptions, the next payment will be $200.00 for Point Edward Residents and $225.00 for Sarnia Residents and the final payment $200.00 and $225.00 respectively (corresponding time frame to follow)
Season total for Point Edward Resident $550.00
Season total for Sarnia and surrounding area $600.00
We realize each player will be end up paying $50.00 more by end of this season however, our fundraising opportunities (Bingo revenue and Meat Raffle proceeds) have been suspended since March and we anticipate additional costs related to sanitizing and PPE for volunteers etc. We will be unable to travel to other Centres (eliminating the need to pay gate fees for the foreseeable future) and hope that helps offset the impact of the increase.
A board member will be in attendance at each ice time during the first week to collect the first instalment in registration fees prior to the player taking the ice. If parents wish to make arrangements to pay sooner than their first ice time, please reach out ([email protected]), we want your first visit to the rink to be as smooth as possible. Cheques or bank drafts are ideal, we ask that any cash be sealed in an envelope.
We have intentionally staggered the fees to avoid having to refund participants should we experience an interruption or cancellation. Unfortunately, much like other Centres, we will be unable to offer refunds this season.
Health Forms (HTCP Medical Information Sheet) will be forwarded via email for parents to complete and return. Parents with players new to our Program must complete the OMHA Parent Version of “Respect in Sport” and attach their certificate number to one of their player’s Hockey Canada profile.
We very much appreciate everyone’s patience and flexibility, in what feels like foreign territory. We truly are doing our very best to plan and prepare for a safe, fun, positive 2020-2021 season!
