Questions regarding Wednesday's Government of Ontario Announcement
The AMHA has received a number of questions regarding programming commencing next week. At this time, we do know that there will be a form sent out soon that everyone will need to complete for EACH ice time. This form will be handed into an AMHA representative at the complex. You will also need to sign in at the door similarly to what was experienced by participants and parents last year.


How the Government of Ontario's announcement yesterday will impact our programming, is somewhat uncertain. We have been in contact with the EECC, and they are investigating if there will or will not be requirements for entering the building. When we hear back from the EECC, we will be able to provide more info. 

Additionally, we have been told that the OMHA will be releasing a document regarding vaccines on Friday. We will need to wait to see the full details of the announcement. 

The AMHA is committed to working with the various governing bodies including the Government of Ontario, the Ministry of Health as well as the Southwestern Public Health Unit, and the various sport specific bodies including Hockey Canada, the OHF, the OMHA and the leagues.

Please stay tuned for more info, as we will know more about specific requirements soon.

Thanks.

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.
