Looking Ahead to the Return of Hockey UPDATED JAN 12TH
Submitted By Jeff Caplan on Wednesday, January 6, 2021
Firstly, on behalf of the OAAA board and your Orono Arena staff, we want to wish our players, families, friends and the community a HAPPY NEW YEAR!  We hope you all had a safe and healthy Christmas season!

We know you want to be back on the ice just as much as we want to see you back on the ice! 

Your OAAA Hockey Committee is already planning our return to hockey.  Optimistically (perhaps very), we are planning to resume hockey practices on Wednesday February 10th, 2021 if we are allowed to.

The latest 28 day lock-down period announced by the Provincial Government on January 12th is set to end Tuesday February 9th.  If the lock-down is not extended, we hope to be able to be back on the ice under Red Zone rules on February 10th.

You may notice that practices are being re-loaded to the website starting in early February.  This is in anticipation of our return to hockey.  Please know that your coach or manager will communicate the official return to hockey date to you when it is known.

During this downtime, if you are not sure if you are paid up for the first part of the season please reach out to our registration team at [email protected] because we don't want to see anything keep our kids off the ice once we are given the OK to return to hockey.  Players who have not paid for the first half of the season may not get on the ice right away.

For our coaches and bench staff, please ensure that you have completed all your required certifications so that our teams can be rostered with the OMHA.  One course that many have forgotten to take is the COVID Safe Return online course. This course is free and must be taken to be part of a team's bench staff.

If you have any questions about our return to hockey, please email [email protected]
