Kent Minor Hockey Cancels The Remainder Of Their Season
Despite arenas opening this weekend, one local minor hockey organization has called it quits for the season.
Tuesday, the Kent Minor Hockey Association announced, given their current information, the group has decided to cancel the remainder of their season and ice times.
“The restrictions placed on us now limit the number of players allowed on the ice to 10. Prior to the lock down, we were allowed 20 players per session. The restrictions also do not allow for any 3 on 3 or 4 on 4 play. Training and skill development are the only permitted activities. With this information and no way of determining how long we would remain in the Red Zone, the Executive made the difficult decision to cancel the balance of our season,” KMHA posted on their website.
Chatham-Kent is likely to move out of the Red Zone of COVID-19 restrictions in the coming days, however with a decision made, it’s unlikely to change KMHA’s stance.
Registration fees will be refunded for this portion of the season.
“The executive wishes to thank all the players and their families for their patience during these very uncertain times. Be safe, have a great summer and we will see you back on the ice in September,” the statement concluded.
