OMHA Suspends Hockey Indefinitely
Submitted By Brian Jubenville on Friday, March 13, 2020
Please read the following message from Adam MacKellar, our ELMHA president, regarding OMHA Suspending Hockey Indefinitely:

Everyone,  
It is will great disappointment that I'm writing this email.  As of now, all games and practices have been suspended indefinitely by OMHA.  This means ELMHA cannot use the ice until OMHA give us the go ahead, or we could face fines and suspensions.    


I know there will be disappointed kids and parents, and lots of frustration for all teams, especially those in playoffs for the rep and LL finals.   We are going to reach out to OMHA and try to get answers on when/if we can start up again and what their plans are to finish the season.  Hopefully, we can still salvage the season once we get the go ahead to play again. I'm not sure where this situation will take us, but hopefully we can all keep level heads and realize we will do whatever we can to get the games in.  Thanks everyone for all your help throughout the season.   Any questions, let me know, and if we hear more, you will all be updated as soon as we know. 

Adam MacKellar  
ELMHA President
