Tigers Update

Hello Tiger Families, I want to take the time to thank all of you for your patience and cooperation

Hello Tiger Families

I want to take the time to thank all of you for your patience and cooperation over the last few months as the OGHA strived to implement a program that was both safe and successful for all participants.   I understand how difficult change can be, especially when protocols are changing on a weekly basis.  We are extremely privileged to have the opportunity to be on the ice and to be playing modified games at this time.   We could not have done this without your dedication and understanding.  Although hockey looks very different this year, I’m sure you would all agree that it is wonderful to see the players on the ice, smiling and having fun together. 

The Town of Orangeville has revised their protocols, which in turn has resulted in the OGHA revising their Return to Play protocols and their Covid-19 Response Plan.  I encourage everyone to read all 3 documents located on our website under the Covid -19 tab, as well as watch our new protocol videos for each arena.  The links are provided below.  A few reminders to note:

·         Masks must be worn at all times.  Participants and coaching staff only remove masks once their helmet goes on and they MUST put a mask on IMMEDIATELY after removing their helmet.

·         Only 1 parent/guardian per family is allowed in the rink.  NO SIBLINGS.  Our numbers for some groups are 50 with players and 1 guardian only.  There can be no exceptions to this rule.  If you must bring a sibling you will not be able to stay for the ice time.  You will need to get your player ready, leave, and return at the end of the ice time.

·         There will be no change rooms.  They are too hard to police and they create an inequitable environment as the whole team cannot fit in 1 change room and the layout of the arenas do not offer change rooms in both Group sections.  We are attempting to keep overlap of Groups to a minimum.

Once again, thank you all for your understanding.  The OGHA will continue to work hard and make choices that are in the best interest of ALL players and their safety.  Please feel free to contact me anytime with questions or concerns that may arise.  The links for the revised documents are:
