Message From KAMHA
Submitted By Enrico Caruso on Wednesday, April 22, 2020
Dear KAMHA Family, We hope you and your family are well and staying healthy during this unprecedented time. In the midst of uncertainty, we want to provide you with some information related to what has transpired last month and what we are anticipating over the next few months.

Here is a brief timeline that has transpired so far across Ontario and Canada.

· March 13 - Hockey Canada announced that all hockey related activities are to be suspended, which lead to the eventual cancelation of the reminder of the 2019-2020 season.

· March 16 – OHF ( Ontario Hockey Federation) announces to their member partners that Representative spring tryouts would not take place in April.  We anticipate over the coming months to receive more information related to when tryouts will take place and will share it with you as soon as it becomes available to us. We anticipate that Tryouts will happen late August, early September, but again depending how the virus progresses this may change.

· Mid-March – The government shut down all non-essential services which included all of Kingston’s sport facilities and will remain closed until the government feels that it will be safe to have our children back to these facilities.

As we are all in a wait and see mode, KAMHA’s primary objective is to support planning for the upcoming season so we can have as much as possible ready for a seamless transition to the start of the 2020/2021 season. Our executives have been meeting virtually and preparing a plan A, B and C as we receive season start up information from our regional governing body OMHA.

We are committed and will do our best to sharing in timely manner any and all information provided to us by OMHA that pertains to the start of the season.

At this time, we are reviewing our registration rate for the upcoming season while taking into account how Covid-19 has financially impacted our community and families. We will make every effort to adjust our programming, and look into offering an automatic payment option from the time registration opens to the start of the season so that we can make hockey available to everyone that wishes to participate.

Finally, we would like to thank all our members who provide an essential service to our community. We appreciate your continued commitment in helping to keep us safe! We would also like to take this time to thank all of the local business that have sponsored our players and teams throughout the years, we encourage if possible to buy local and support the business in our community that are offering contactless options.

We hope all our members are in good health and embracing this time at home with each other. Keep a look out on our social media platforms as well as our website.

Clean Hands, Clear Heads, Open Hearts

Steve Walker

KAMHA President
