Shamrock Showdown Tournament Update
As many of you are aware, there has been multiple large scale events cancelled and/ or limiting spectators, throughout New York State, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19). USA Hockey, our governing body, has stated the following; “There are games/tournaments played throughout the U.S. at the local level that include USA Hockey members that are not national-level events and are operated by districts, affiliates, local associations or even private operators. The decisions relative to those events are made at the local level. We continue to encourage all involved to engage with local health and medical professionals, and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization, in making educated decisions.” (https://www.nysaha.com/)
I have been in contact with the Town of Whitestown, NYSAHA, Oneida County Department of Health, and other various members within our organization and community. After careful thought and consideration, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Shamrock Showdown Mite Tournament. The safety of those that planned to be in attendance; the players, coaches, volunteers, families, and staff; is the utmost importance. A full refund will be granted to all the teams.
We appreciate your continued patience and understanding. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
