Return to Play 2020/2021 (Northumberland Minor Hockey)

PrintReturn to Play 2020/2021
Throughout the 2020/2021 season you will be able to find all of the NMHA documents that relate to our Return to Hockey.

As the situation evolves and we move throughout the stages, these documents will be updated regularly. We will advise team officials when updates are made and in turn they will communicate with their team.

This upcoming season will be very different than our general expectations regarding hockey.

It is very important that parents, players and volunteers understand how they play a critical role in the safe return to activities.

Before this season begins, please be sure to adjust your expectations for this seasons and embrace that our focus will be on skill development, fun and safety.  Abiding by all of the rules set out by Hockey Canada, the OMHA, the NMHA and our local facilities will help to ensure that our players safety is paramount.
