COVID 19 Protocol Update for NYSAHA Members
TO: All Members of NYSAHA
I would like to take this moment to wish each and every one a joyous and safe Holiday Season, especially our NYSAHA Board of Directors and all the Association Leaders who work so hard throughout the year to make this great sport work for all participants.
As I am sure you are well aware the Governor and the New York State Department of Health has issued a new State-wide Mask Mandate. In furtherance of our prior Covid Protection Policies, we, as an organization, are requiring ALL of our membership to follow that Mandate as well as any supplemental Policy set forth by any Municipal Health Department having control over COVID 19 Policies. At present that means face coverings must be worn by all persons, over age two and able to medically tolerate a face covering/mask in all in-door facilities, whether on the ice, in the locker room while traversing around the indoors of any ice facility or during any organized in-door USA Hockey event unless that facility requires proof of vaccination to enter the facility.
Please continue to be careful and follow all the rules and regulations as required in your specific areas as each area of the State may have variations of the State Mandate which could be even more stringent.
It is both the hope of our entire Board and myself, that everyone stays healthy and safe at all times while enjoying the privilege of playing Hockey during this pandemic.
As always, the Board of Directors and I are available either by email or phone to try to answer you questions. If we don’t have the answer immediately, we will get it for you. Don’t hesitate to contact us.
In closing, I want to again wish each and every one a safe and enjoyable holiday season.
Stay safe and have fun!!!
Yours in Hockey
New York State Amateur Hockey Association, Inc.
President District Director
In accordance with the state and county mask mandate, the Whitestown Community Center and Ice Rink is requiring that everyone where a mask in their facility regardless of vaccination status. This includes wearing a mask OFF AND ON THE ICE.
If you are interested, masks that fit inside the helmet are available locally at Kotary Hockey. You can also order online at Purehockey.com HERE.
Thank you for keeping our community safe!
AN IMPORTANT REMINDER FOR EVERYONE
Officiating in youth sports across the country is being confronted with similar fates: a decline in officials due to a lack of respect from adults. Many young officials put their stripes on for the first time, excited and eager to pursue a hockey dream. Just like our kids on the ice playing, they are learning and perfecting their craft. But the dream, too many times, is met with yelling or arguing from adults at rinks.
There is a human element to officiating. Every person that walks into a rink is accountable for his or her actions. As adults, we can set positive examples to our children about how to handle conflict and disagreements, with respect. And at its core, hockey is built on respect.
That handshake line we all love at the end of the hockey games? The stick salute to our opponents? It's all to show respect.
Read more about how we can enact the change we wish to see when it comes to respect, and how we can build a better future for our young officials.
