If your child cannot attend school, they should not attend hockey
The AMHA board would like to confirm for parents that if your child has not passed the school screening to attend school or their class has been quarantined then they cannot attend their hockey practice/game.  Players are to follow the directions provided by Southwest Public Health in these instances.

The Ontario Hockey Federation has changed our hockey screening procedures to be more consistent with the screenings the schools are following. Please continue to use the Sportsheadz app.  Updates will be coming soon to bring it inline.  The basic guideline to follow is that if you can go to school, you can go to hockey.

For any specific COVID 19 questions, please direct your questions to our monitoring committee, who are following closely what is happening in and around our community. This committee aims to be proactive in their approach to reducing risk to our families. If there is a perceived concern that may affect your child, you may or may not be contacted by someone from the committee for basic investigation. The AMHA does not want to infringe on anyone's privacy or right to confidentiality, so any insight anyone provides will be treated sensitively. 

COVID 19 Committee Members:
Brent Barker
Mike Holmes
Stephen Douglas

Again, we cannot emphasize enough that there are basic rules to follow in order to have the privilege of playing hockey at the community complex. Thank you all for your understanding and commitment to keeping each other safe. 

Tim Hortons
The Timbits Minor Sports Program is a community-oriented sponsorship program for children four to eight years old who participate in local house league sports teams. The program's philosophy is not based on winning or losing - but on learning a new sport, making new friends, and just taking time out to be a kid. Tim Hortons currently sponsors over 200,000 children who play on hockey, soccer, lacrosse, t-ball, baseball and ringette teams across Canada and in the United States. Each sponsored team is supplied with Timbits Minor Sports jerseys or T-shirts. Timbits hockey teams are often given the opportunity to play on-ice scrimmages during intermissions at Junior, American Hockey League (AHL) and National Hockey League (NHL) games.
