Screening Procedure update for U5, U7 and U8
The following should provide some clarity with regards to the screening procedures for the U5, U7 and U8 divisions. 

The U5, U7 and U8 divisions have already been divided into their teams, which has allowed the AMHA to get the team's Sportsheadz app set up and ready to go. As such, the participants and coaching staff are required to screen themselves prior to any practice/game using the app. 

Everyone watching and participating in U5, U7 and U8 skates, including the players, coaches and parents/grandparents have to sign the EECC sign in at the front door as per normal routine.

Why the redundancy?

Public Health requires both the facility and our organization to keep track of attendances for contact tracing purposes.

The remaining divisions cannot be divided into teams until after tryouts are complete, and as such, the players and coaches in U9, U11, U13, U15 and U18 will continue to use the paper forms found on the AMHA webpage under the "COVID19" tab to hand into your coach at EVERY skate, and continue to sign in to the EECC screen, which has been pre-filled in for your coach.

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.
