We have received a lot of questions from parents wanting to modify a mask to attach to the helmet. At this time, you cannot modify a mask and attach it to the helmet. The only "attach to helmet" mask approved is the CCM Game on Mask. See guidance below. Please remember that these rules will need to be enforced by coaches, and refs - please abide by the rules.
Quick update for you on two things:
1: Masks for Players 5 Years old and Under: We were waiting for official confirmation from the MDH that we were interpreting the order correctly on masks for 5 and under. We did get word. Players 5 and Under are not required to wear a mask while on the ice. Here's the note I got from MDH yesterday: According the mask executive order, kids 5 and under are not required to wear masks (kids 2-5 can wear masks, but they’re not required)
2: Bauer Splash Guard update: We continue to meet with the State and MDH on getting Bauer Splash Guards approved as a face covering. We are inching closer, but nothing official to announce yet. If we do get word that these do in fact get approved as a face covering, I'll let you all know asap. (Important note/reminder on these is that for us as a governing body to approve a face covering it has to be approved by HECC as well as the State. So far HECC has only approved CCM Game On and Bauer Splash Guard.)
Association Members, we wanted to provide you with another update as we resume practices January 4th, 2021. Please reach out to a board member if you have any questions or need clarification. Here is a condensed version, the guidelines and updates are attached.
For some of the older teams, you are going to see some late night practices. This isn’t ideal, and while we understand that, we are working with what we have been given.
Please be patient as we navigate this season. We understand that there are a lot of opinions about masks and it is perfectly acceptable for everyone to have their opinion, however, whether we agree or disagree with the rules, please do your part to help make sure ALL the rules are followed. It is difficult, and not much fun to have to have a discussion with people who are not following the rules, especially when we are such a small community. We are all aware of the rules, and we all need to follow the rules.
January's Board Meeting d will be held virtually on Wednesday, January 13th at 7:30 p.m.
