Saturday, August 1 at, 2:00 p.m. It is marked on my calendar. Blackhawks vs. Oilers. Kane vs. McDavid. Toews vs. Draisaitl.
On March 12, our lives changed in many ways. Sports disappeared; sports on TV, sports that kids played, sports that we played.
But we are slowly getting back to the games we love. We first got back to golf, and we are now back to hockey. Live sports are back, and yes it is weird to see a PGA Tour event with no fans, or Wrigley Field with no fans. However, we can adjust.
Over the past two months we have cautiously returned to the ice. We started slowly, holding our sessions to no more than 20 on the ice at one time during the month of June. In July we moved to Phase 4 where we have permitted more kids on the ice. The Winnetka Ice Arena has just hosted the Impact Hockey Camp over the past three weeks. A special shout out to Paul Schwartz, manager of the Winnetka Ice Arena, for having a well-crafted plan for use of the facility.
Moving forward, it is the Club’s intent to offer a full season of hockey for both House and Travel levels. We are excited about welcoming all players for the 2020-2021 season. Please know that in preparing for this season, we have been working closely with
, the leagues we participate in, and the
Illinois Department of Public Health
to help us create a safe, valuable and fun experience for our players.
