MAHA COVID-19 SHUTDOWN

Mankato Area Hockey Association

MAHA COVID-19 Shutdown

MAHA Families - 

We want to thank everyone for their continued patients as we navigate through this unique situation.  There is not a lot of new information but we wanted to let the members know we are having discussions regarding a variety of things including tournaments, league games, refunds, etc. and will be sending out updates as we learn more.

 

As directed by MN Hockey, all Minnesota Hockey rostered teams are not allowed to play during the designated pause time period. 

This includes play outside of Minnesota in bordering states. Play is defined as practice, scrimmages, 

games and tournaments.

 

• No organized team skates on an outdoor rink, pond

• No small group skates indoors or outdoors

• Minnesota Ice Arenas will be closed. 

• Virtual coaching only. No in-person instruction.

 

No decision has been made on potential refunds at this time as we are waiting for direction and guidance from District 9 and MN Hockey on if there will be a potential extention to the season.

 

We fully intend to take advantage of the virtual coaching opportunity. Marcus is putting together a program to keep team engagement going for the next 4 weeks so every team will be ready to go once we get the go ahead from MN Hockey to return to the ice. We strongly encourage every player to utilize the Project Hockey program which Danny Heath is generously offering to each MAHA player for free for 4 months.

 

If you have any questions, we ask you send them to the following email mahapresident@mankatohockey.com

 

Thank you,

Adam Arnoldy

MAHA President

COVID-19 Return-to-Play Hockey Guidelines

The Mankato Area Hockey Association (MAHA) guidelines to COVID-19 Return-to-Play Hockey was created with the intention of keeping everyone safe and socially distant.

Please remind your skaters of the following:

1. All players and coaches need to come dressed in their hockey gear. The easiest way to tell everyone is no bags; carry your helmet, and skates on your stick.

2. Each group is given 10 minutes BEFORE and AFTER their ice time to lace up skates.

3. Masks are to be worn while in the building and can ONLY be taken off only while on the ice actively participating.

4. No spectators. No circumstances.

STAY SAFE

MAHA WEATHER POLICY

MAHA’s stance on bad weather accounts for parents to make an ultimate decision on behalf of the child. All Seasons Arena typically does not close due to poor weather, therefore MAHA does not cancel practice on poor weather days, even if school is called. However, any practices being held on days school is let out due to weather are considered “optional”, yet coaches will attend the practice time for anyone wishing to attend. Players​ ​missing​ ​such​ ​practices​ ​will​ ​NOT​ ​be​ ​subject​ ​to​ ​any​ ​team​ ​rule​ ​sanctions.


In the case of school cancellations, all non-district games will automatically be cancelled. In the case of district games, teams must follow the District 9 policy, which calls for both teams agreeing to cancel a game​ ​before​ ​it​ ​can​ ​be​ ​cancelled.
