Meeting with the Town of Orangeville Council
Submitted By Michelle Whyte on Sunday, February 14, 2021
OGHA will be meeting with Town Council this week.

OGHA along with OMH and Skate Canada will be meeting with Town Council on Wednesday February 17, 2021 to answer questions that the Councilors may have regarding our request from January 11, 2021.

We are asking the Town to reduce our ice costs for the remainder of the season. We are not asking the Town to pay for our program, we are asking the Town to reduce our hourly price of $211.50. Our hope is to come out of the meeting on Wednesday so the Town isn't going to lose money and we get a reduction of the hourly rate.

With the loss of our tournaments and fewer registrations, we are experiencing a loss in revenue this season.  The restrictions of 10 players on the ice during Red stage is an unprecedented situation that we have never experienced before.  This is the reason we are requesting a reduction in ice costs.  

We will continue to do everything we can as an organization to keep the girls on the ice.  This isn't just hockey, this is physical, mental and emotional wellness for everyone.

Thank you
Michelle Whyte
OGHA
President
