THE ANNOUNCEMENT CAME TODAY! The Governor issued an Executive Order opening up certain businesses including ice rinks.
Now, despite the fact that KOHA staff along with Wings West rink management have been working throughout the pandemic to put plans and procedures in place for a Return to the Rinks, we are asking you to be patient.
Wings West is going to need the next day or so to go over the Executive Order and ensure that their re-open plan abides by any regulations set forth in the Order.
At that point, they will communicate to us the guidelines, policies and procedures for re-opening and we will share that with our membership.
It is also expected that in the next couple of days, our governing body, MAHA will put out an announcement regarding affiliates (like KOHA) and any regulations they might require. We expect that MAHA's announcement will also include the date after which Tier II (KWINGS) tryouts will be allowed to be held.
Once we have all of that information, we will be able to share our schedule to get kids back on the ice, including the dates for the KOHA development camps and clinics originally scheduled for the beginning of August. We feel strongly about giving our kids every opportunity to be successful at tryouts and evaluation skates - and we will still hold those opportunities.
So again, be patient. Everyone is so excited that hockey is back, and we want to ensure that all of the work we have done during our time away from the rink results in the safest and most enjoyable opportunity for all of our members.
We can't wait to SEE OUR KIDS BACK ON THE ICE!
