Ice Puppy 2019-2020 season wrap up

Ice Puppy 2019-2020 season wrap up

Good Day,

I hope this message finds you all safe and healthy in this very uncertain time amidst the pandemic. 

I wanted to take the time to provide you all with a wrap up of the Ice Puppy Season.

We were so very fortunate that our All Star weekend was completed prior to the facility shut down for social distancing.  The IP Coach Charity game and Silent Auction/fundraising event for the MHL Playmore program was another huge success raising $10,000 for the cause.  Thank you to Ty Trainor and Pier DiBiase both stepping up from the house league to be the goalies for the Coach’s game.  Thank you to Coach Andrew Janeco for shaving his beard for the cause, to Lorn for donating his time to shave Andrew’s beard, to our IP players that sang O Canada to kick off the game, former IP Director Christi Scarrow doing the official puck drop, Josh and Kelly for all of their support behind the scenes, to the MMHA board members supporting this weekend event and to the many volunteers that made this weekend a fantastic finish to the year for the IP players and parents…..THANK YOU. 


Thank you to the contributors within our hockey community and the Streetsville/Meadowvale business community that stepped up to make monetary donations and/or prizes for the Silent Auction.

Thank you to all of the IP coaches, team managers and on ice volunteers, without you this amazing season would not have happened.

Thank you to the parents who woke up early every Saturday morning to come to practice and to the parents and families cheering the players on during their Sunday games, all of this makes for great and lasting memories.

I look forward to partnering with you all again next season both on and off the ice when we can put the effect of this pandemic behind us.  I wish you, your families and your family safety and good health.  A special thank you to many of you who are deemed as essential businesses during this time.

ALL Hockey Canada (inclusive of the MHL) operations suspended

Hockey Canada Information Bulletin

We as the Ontario Hockey Federation support the Hockey Canada Statement quoted below.

“ HOCKEY CANADA STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

CALGARY, Alta. – The following is a statement on behalf of Hockey Canada from Tom Renney, chief executive officer, and Scott Smith, president and chief operating officer, on the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“Without question, this an unprecedented period of difficulty for the sports world. The health and safety of all participants in sport, including players, coaches, staff, officials, fans, family, volunteers and the general public, is of the utmost importance to Hockey Canada.

After much consultation with the Hockey Canada membership, our chief medical officer and public health officials, the Hockey Canada Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel all Hockey Canada-sanctioned activities, including our national championships, until further notice, effective Friday, March 13, 2020.

We recognize the tremendous effort that has been put forth all year by individuals across the country as they participate in Canada’s game. Although it is difficult to process the hockey season ending abruptly, we feel this is the best course of action in order to do our part in keeping our country safe.” ”

As such, all Minor Hockey, Junior Hockey and Women’s Hockey, including the OHF and Regional Championships and subsequent Hockey Canada sanctioned functions (year-end banquet, etc.) are suspended for the remainder of the season.

Further information will follow as it becomes available.

Hockey Canada Bulletin: CORONAVIRUS – IMPORTANT REMINDER

Hockey Canada Information Bulletin

http://meadowvalehockey.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/2019-2020-Coronavirus.pdf

On January 25, 2020, the Government of Ontario reported the first case of COVID‐19 (coronavirus) in Canada. Canada’s chief public health officer is in ongoing contact with provincial and territorial chief medical officers of health to ensure any cases of COVID‐19 occurring in Canada continue to be rapidly identified and managed in order to protect the health of Canadians. Hockey Canada’s chief medical officer, Dr. Mark Aubry, is in contact with the IIHF Medical Committee.

The Public Health Agency of Canada currently assesses the public health risk associated with COVID‐19 as low for Canada and for Canadian travellers depending on the destination. Public health risk is continually assessed as new information becomes available. Updates on COVID‐19 can be found at:

https://www.canada.ca/en/public‐health/services/diseases/2019‐novel‐coronavirusinfection.html

This situation serves as a reminder that the health and safety of participants is a priority, and prevention in the hockey environment should be considered by those around the game. 

The following are recommendations that should be considered at all times during hockey programming:

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol‐based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. Make soap and/or hand sanitizer available in dressing rooms and hotels.
  • Avoid contact with sick people, including avoiding close contact with people suffering from acute respiratory infections.
  • Gloves should be worn by staff handling towels or laundry in the team environment.
  • Towels should not be shared on the team bench. Players should not share clothing, bar soap or other personal items such as razors.
  • The Hockey Canada Safety Program recommends the following protocol as it relates to the use of water bottles:  o Good team hygiene includes ensuring all players and staff have their own water bottles to prevent the transmission of viruses and bacteria. 
    • Bottles should be labelled and washed after each practice or game.  o It is further recommended that officials avoid the practice of drinking from the goaltender’s water bottle. If officials require water during a game, we suggest they have their own water bottle at the penalty bench. 
    • There should not be sharing of water bottles in the penalty box, as well as no sharing of towels. 
  • Avoid raw or undercooked animal products if having team meals, or if eating while travelling to events/tournaments.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing. Practice cough etiquette (maintain distance, cover coughs and sneezes with disposable tissues or clothing, wash hands).
  • Advise players to try and not touch their own mouths or nose when in the hockey environment to reduce the chance of them passing an infection on to themselves.
  • Monitor illness and injury in all teams. Parents are urged to keep their children away from the hockey environment if they are showing any signs of infectious disease or virus.
  • Team members should be encouraged to self‐report if they feel ill.
  • Fist bump with hockey gloves on, instead of shaking hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Monitor travel restrictions on the Government of Canada Travel Advisory website, which can be found at https://travel.gc.ca/travelling/advisories
  • It is also important to check with applicable insurers specific to any cancelation policies or travel health insurance policies you may purchase to ensure there is coverage as it relates to COVID‐19.

Good hygienic practices will help to maintain a healthy team atmosphere and ultimately assist in keeping all participants healthy throughout the season.

If any questions please contact Todd Jackson, Director of Insurance and Risk Management, Hockey Canada.
