Morgantown Hockey Families,

Due to recent developments surrounding COVID-19, MHA has suspended all activities beginning Friday, March 13th.  This includes tryouts, Little Penguins, scheduled practices, and events.

We have been informed that the ice rink is closed as of March 13th at 12:30PM, and they expect the closure to last through March 31st.  

The MHA board met this afternoon to begin to work out the details surrounding the end of this season, and tryouts for next season.

Tryouts - The Morgantown Ice Arena is now closed, and we have been informed that the ice will be removed beginning March 15th.  The board discussed the possibility of holding tryouts at a "nearby" rink, but decided that coordination would be difficult; and it may as well be difficult to get a significant number of participants to attend.  We therefore made the decision to wait and hold the tryouts at the beginning of next season.  It's not ideal at all, but we will absolutely make it work.  We obviously do not have actual dates selected yet, but we are looking at holding tryouts in early August.  More details will be made available later.  Thank you to all that have already completed the tryout registration.  We have a fairly good indication of the number of teams that we will be able to field at each age level.  There are still some players that have not yet registered, and we're hoping to hear from them soon.  This includes those that played Blades/Mohawks this past season, as well as those that participated in our developmental house program.  Due to the circumstances, we have temporarily removed the $25 late registration fee, and ask that anyone that has not yet registered to please take the time to REGISTER now.  (The late fee will be refunded to those that have already paid it.)  Please reach out to your level representative, or any BOARD MEMBER, if you have any questions about our offerings.

End of Season Party / Annual Meeting - Unfortunately, we will not be able to hold our end of season skating party as previously planned.  The date, time, and location of the Annual Meeting will be announced soon.  There are still board positions that need to be filled.  Please take the time to make your NOMINATIONS for the 2020-2021 board of directors.

Rental Equipment Return - As of now, the rink will be closed until March 31st.  Therefore, we will not be able to collect rental equipment during tryouts or during the end of season party as previously planned.  Once we establish dates and times, we will let you know when to return the equipment.  It will hopefully be sometime in April.

Cash Bash / Night at the Races - We are very disappointed to announce that we will not be holding the fundraising event on March 20th as planned.  Organizers are tirelessly working to reschedule the event for sometime later this spring or summer.  Please pass this information along to anyone to whom you may have sold tickets.

 

We ask that you please continue to be patient as we all work through this together.  We will provide updated information on the aforementioned items as soon as more details are available.  Please continue to monitor your email, as well as the MHA website and Facebook page.  Please continue to be diligent in keeping yourself and your family safe.
