Spectators at Upcoming Practices

Hi Folks, As teams are being settled and the first few practices are being scheduled here is some clarification regarding spectators at Chebucto on ice activities in the near term.  Until team rosters including saftey representatives have been settled, submitted to and approved by Hockey Nova Scotia, only participants and volunteers will be allowed within the facility. We do not expect to allow spectators until at least after our Rec balancing activities. We appreciate your understanding and are looking forward to having our fans and support again enjoying the season under safe conditions within the Provincial directives.  Thanks again for helping to make our startup processes successful and your support to our volunteer staff.

U7 information will follow as soon as possible.   The responsibility of tracking, registering and policing all spectators in arenas is the requirement of the renter, ie. Chebucto Minor Hockey Association. While we have been following this practice and feel confident with it, we now have an added layer with the new Vaccination Policy to consider.( to view policy-click here) We have a good process in place managing the players/coaches , and we will be keeping our focus strictly on the players and the evaluation processes during the upcoming weeks. In the meantime, please note that CMHA will be working with Safety Reps to have a spectator plan in place for the remainder of the season following the tryouts and balancing sessions. We understand this may not be a popular decision but the decision was not taken lightly. The Board voted and unanimously agreed that we are doing this for the players experience, the focus on the tryout/ pre season recreation process and to make sure we have what we need in place for a safe return.   You may have read the recent email about Vaccination Proof that was sent out. Please read it and provide info to Bryan, VP Risk Management , you can find the info HERE.   With today’s announcement we are to follow a Modified Phase 5 . Please DO NOT come to the rink if you are sick or have symptoms. Please self assess before coming to the rink. Please click here for screening tool. What to expect when coming to the Lions Rink: Players will check in with the Safety Rep in the lobby 15 min before their session.  Players are required to wear a mask to enter and exit the arena, they can remove the mask once in the dressing       room just before putting on their helmet prior to session.  Our mask policy will remain the same as it was in Phase 4: On the ice, masks are not required during practices, training sessions, and games. Off the ice, masks will be required. Please note that coaches and instructors who work with more than one group must wear a mask at all times while inside the facility (including while on the ice) Players must arrive fully dressed including skates, if they are not able to dress and tie their skates on their own. If a player is able to dress and tie their own skates, then a dressing room will be available 15 min prior to ice time. All players must enter through the main doors and exit through the side doors located between the bleachers. When in the rink, all players must remain in the dressing room until the Zamboni is done cleaning the ice. This allows the players to leave the ice and limit contact around the exits. All Volunteers – please enforce this rule…this allows less contact among players when exiting the ice surface. This also means you…you must also be in the dressing room, not outside the door. Once the ice time is complete, players must leave within 15 minutes Please visit our website for contact information for all Board Members, if you have a question about a certain division/topic- please reach out to the appropriate Board Member. This season we have introduced Coordinator positions, please see below for details. These crucial roles will help us with all processes through the tryouts, rec balancing and season tasks…many thanks for volunteering. All contact information is on our new website powered by GrayJay. Visit us HERE Division Coordinator Positions - Non-Board Members ? U7 - Jennifer Mitchell ? U9 - Chris Keough ? U11 Rec - Vacant ? U11 Comp - Vacant ? U13 Rec - Shawn Birt ? U13 Comp - Alex Allen ?

This is a stressful time for the kids, back to school and parents and families navigating through all of the Covid information. We want the process from start to finish to be a positive one. We are all dealing with a lot of changes and different protocols that tend to take over our lives and bring out a negative response…. Let’s change this and keep the focus on our Chebucto Players. We want them to have fun! More details and updates about our season will be out after Tryouts and Recreation Pre Season. PS- 50/50 will begin as soon as teams are formed.

Proof of Vaccination Rollout - COVID Safety Reminder

Hi Chebucto Members, In accordance with upcoming provincial direction we are beginning our collection of proof of vaccine.    Please read the following rollout documentation: Proof of Vaccination Rollout This can also be found under the Risk Management Section of the "Policies" section of the site. REMINDER: all email proof of vaccination should go to: risk.management@chebuctominorhockey.com Also -- IMPORTANT As we enter the tryout phases we must be vigilant to continue respecting the Phase 4 COVID protocols specifically about indoor masks. During the development period we needed to constantly remind players to keep masks on in the dressing room until they were ready to step onto the ice. If you are a parent please have a discussion with your player on the importance of this and continuing to follow this practice particularly for those in age groups who are unable to get vaccinated (i.e. U13 and younger).  In cases where we have repeat offenders identified that will not follow safety policies, either through inattention or apathy, these cases will be escalated to the Executive for potential discipline under violation of our Safety policies.   We all need to do our part to keep our membership safe. The most likely vector of transmission is from an unmasked individual to another. Bryan Esbaugh VP Risk

Message from Tryout Committee - Competitive Tryout Schedule and Information

Hello Chebucto families,    With tryouts just around the corner, the tryout committee is working very hard to get things ready to go for the start of another successful year of competitive hockey in Chebucto. As a reminder, with Hockey Nova Scotia’s Rebound Plan, tryouts cannot begin before October 1. While many components are still in the final phases of planning, we did want to provide some important information to help families plan for what will be a busy week. Please see link below for  Phase 1 of  the Tryout Schedule 2021 Tryout Schedule Final _Competitive    FAQ’s  Where will tryouts take place?  All tryouts will take place at the Lions Rink in Spryfield.  What COVID protocols are in place for tryouts?  COVID protocols, including those around vaccinations, are still being determined and will be communicated as quickly as possible. Will spectators be allowed in the rink?  Spectators will not be permitted in the rink. Only players, evaluators, tryout committee members, volunteers, and rink staff will be allowed to enter the building. What time should players arrive?  Players will be permitted to enter the rink 15 minutes prior to their designated time , so please plan accordingly. If a player requires assistance with equipment/ skates, there will be dressing room monitors available for all levels of play.   Will the entire tryout schedule be posted?  No. Players and parents will receive times for their initial tryout sessions no later than 9:00 PM Monday, September 27. At this time, we will also indicate the other blocks of time the specific age groups have assigned for the rest of the tryout schedule.  It does not mean the player will be on the ice for all of them, however, we hope it will help you plan for the tryout period. After the initial sessions, players will be re-grouped a number of times and these groupings will be posted as quickly as possible during the tryout process. If players can be informed of multiple session times, this will be provided. Who should I reach out to with questions?    If you have any questions prior to, or during the tryout process, please reach out to the following email: chebuctotryoutcommittee@gmail.com   . This will put you in contact with Cathy Delbridge, our ombudsperson, who will be acting as a liaison between the tryout committee and the members.  What can we expect during tryouts?  Please refer to the Competitive Tryout Policy document found on our website, at:   https://chebuctominorhockey.com/uploads/chebuctomha/source/0/Try%20Outs/Competitive%202021-2022%20Tryout%20Process_%20final.pdf    Why is the schedule compressed this year?  Due to the fact that we are unable to start until October 1st, timelines are very tight. This schedule will align with other association’s timelines, limit impacts on families and volunteers, and allow us to start practicing prior to the season start date.  How many competitive teams will there be at each age level?       This is something that the tryout committee will be looking at as the tryout process progresses and will be   communicated to the membership as soon as possible.  SPECIFIC AGE GROUP INFORMATION U11 Tryouts For families with a player(s) trying out for U11, tryouts will begin Saturday, October 2, and continue until Thursday, October 7.

Goalies will be immediately placed in intersquad games; these placements may change as the process moves on, and these changes will be posted as quickly as possible so that families are able to plan accordingly U13 Goalies will have a skill session on Friday, October 1 at 5:00 PM.

In closing, we would like to share the following message:   Frustrations arise every year throughout the tryout process. The process is not perfect and not an exact science – there will be multiple opinions on the relative talent within a group of individuals.  Please keep in mind that every effort is in place to deliver a fair evaluation to ensure that the players are placed on the most appropriate team, which will allow them to develop into better hockey players and, most importantly, on a team where they will have fun.  Thank you, Chebucto Minor Hockey Tryout Committee

Potential COVID Exposure - Prospect Road Elementary

Hello Chebucto Families, We have received notification that there has been a positive COVID-19 case and potential exposure at Prospect Road Elementary School (PRES). At this point, we do not know any specifics but, to be safe, we are asking any PRES students to not attend any further development sessions until you have verified through Nova Scotia Health that your child does not pose a potential risk of spread to other members of our hockey community and that your child is not required to self isolate as a result. Failure to do so may result in a large disruption to the start of our hockey season specifically for U13 and below age groups along with increased public health risk.  You may call Health Nova Scotia at: 1-800-430-9557 for more information.  We apologize for any inconvience this may cause. Our primary objective is to do all we can to minimize/eliminate the potential of spread within our hockey family and disruption to the start of the season.  We appreciate your understanding and assistance in this matter. If you have any concerns or questions please feel free to email VP Risk Chebucto.  Stay safe, Go Chebucto! VP Risk - Bryan Esbaugh

Proof of Vaccinations and Provincial Guidance

Hi Folks, Firstly, the Chebucto Executive would like to thank the members of the association that have reached out with questions pursuant to the recent Provincial announcements regarding moving to Phase 5 and further measures such as proof of vaccination. We will be taking these concerns forward for discussion.  Chebucto Minor Hockey will and must follow the policies set out by Hockey Nova Scotia, which in turn receives policy direction from Sport Nova Scotia (i.e. the Provincial Government). We are working with Hockey Nova Scotia to clarify the specifics as to what this will mean and how this will look when our members, volunteers and players show up to the arenas/facilities and communication will be forthcoming likely following meetings happening on or around Sept 20th. For now we will continue to follow our Phase 4 protocols and ask for your patience and understanding as we navigate the rapidly changing landscape. We highly recommend that, in accordance with anticipated provincial policy, that you take measures as soon as possible to ensure vaccination for participants and spectators as best you are able in advance of Oct 4th when these measures are expected be in force.  If you have any questions, or concerns please feel free to contact Bryan Esbaugh - VP Risk Management. Go Chebucto -Bryan Esbaugh (risk.management@chebuctominorhockey.com)

COVID-19 Safety During Development Sessions

Hi Folks, I'm sure everyone is very much looking forward to kicking off the Chebucto Development Sessions in anticipation of tryouts and the regular season.  Just a friendly reminder to please ensure you and your family abide by Health Nova Scotia COVID-19 regulations. In particular, if you have COVID-19 symptoms and are waiting to be tested and/or get your test results you or your family may be legally required to self-isolate for up to 14 days, or as directed by Public Health. So, please do not show up to the development sessions if you or your child are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms and waiting to be tested, awaiting test results, or otherwise been told by Public Health that you or your child needs to self-isolate. This may be the case while you are waiting to get your results or are waiting out a 14-day isolation period due to a high risk exposure as the case may be for those under 12 years of age and those who are unable to be vaccinated.  As we go forward, we will continue to follow the guidance from Public Health and Hockey Nova Scotia and adjust our policies as appropriate.  The complete list of self-isolation requirements are here. Nova Scotia Self-Isolation Requirements If there are any questions, please feel free to contact the VP Risk Management for Chebucto. risk.management@chebuctominorhockey.com Thanks, Stay Safe, Go Chebucto  -Bryan Esbaugh VP Risk (902)402-0739

Developmental Groups

   Good evening Chebucto families, Thank you for your interest in our preseason development blocks. Again this year we have a large number of participants across all age levels. Thanks also for your patience as we worked to accommodate all our ice needs. We were able to secure all our ice times at the Halifax Forum. For some players in U15 and U18, you will notice that there is a U15 / U18 combined group. This was necessary due to the overall numbers in those particular divisions. The focus of these blocks is all individual skill so this will not impact any players development. Please click on the following link to access all groups and times.   Preseason Groups and Schedule  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1W-HX7dy0YFlg59LRwZeCK8teBpcDrtcuhzK201IWmhc/edit#gid=1119923799     Once you have had an opportunity to review your players group and schedule, and If you are able to assist with player check in, dressing room monitoring, etc. please reach out by email. In the email please indicate the Age , Group ( A,B,C etc.) and which specific dates you are available.  If there are any errors, please do not hesitate to contact me at this email address.  Looking forward to getting back on the ice !  Ja-red

Chebucto Development

  Here we are, our last weekend without hockey!   I am excited to get back and see all the players on the ice again. The response to our preseason development has been fantastic, and it will provide a strong foundation for our players to start the season. To clarify any misconceptions that may be out there, no player is being evaluated, scored or judged on any on ice performance prior to October 1st. All evaluations for team placements will take place during the official tryout process. As we prepare for our first week on ice, I want to remind everyone that at this time, the only people allowed in the rink are those on ice, the dressing room attendants, and the safety- check in person.These volunteers can remain in the arena but must follow the safety protocols outlined in the Rebound Plan . Thanks to those who have reached out to full-fill some of these rolls, but we are still in need of more volunteers. If you are able to volunteer, please use the link at the bottom of this email to access the interactive spreadsheet and add your name where you are able to.  Players can begin arriving 20 minutes prior to their scheduled time, and it is recommended that they come dressed, or partially dressed, including skates tied, if they are unable to do these by themselves. Masks must be worn inside the arena at all times, unless players are on the ice. Respect social distancing when possible.  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1zYiD3yKDX3GaHoLO1v1p3r1YURN_BU-U5-KHafmVlEY/edit?usp=sharing If you have any questions, feel free to reach me by email.  Thanks Ja-red Glazebrook VP of Development, CMHA  http://chebuctominorhockey.com    chebuctodevelopment2021@gmail.com

Competitive Tryout Information and Volunteer Form - VP Competitive -Stephen Pelham

July 17, 2021Hello Chebucto Families, Registration for the 2021 - 2022 minor hockey season has begun, I just wanted to pass along some important information for those planning on trying out for competitive hockey at the U11 - U18 levels. Tryout Information Parents and players: Please read the following information regarding CMHA tryouts for 2021 - 2022. It contains important information concerning our tryout processes. As registration closes, and we have final numbers for players, more information will become available. Tryout Dates As per Hockey Nova Scotia’s Rebound Plan, tryouts will begin October 1st. Identification Camps During the month of September, we will be holding mandatory identification camps for all players wishing to try out for competitive. These sessions will allow for players to be grouped appropriately for tryouts in October. As registration closes, more information will be provided regarding dates, times, etc. Tryout Jerseys When registering your child, please make sure to include an appropriate jersey size, as we will be utilizing these jerseys to identify players during tryouts. Once registration has closed, each player will be assigned a number and this will identify them throughout the tryout process. These jerseys will be handed out at the beginning of identification camps. U15/ U18 Players For players registering for U15 or U18, you are asked to inform CMHA if you are trying out for a U15 Major, U18 Major/ Minor team, and/ or a High School Team. Please make sure to reach out immediately to CMHA if you are successful in making a team, and no longer wish to try out for a team in CMHA.Please see the following link to Volunteer: Volunteer FormPlease see the following link for the 2021-2022 ProcessTryout Process If you have any questions, please reach out to: Stephen Pelham, VP Competitivevpcompetitivechebucto@gmail.com

Pre- Season Development Info and Registration for 2021-22 Season

August 4, 2021Hello Chebucto Minor Hockey Association (“CMHA”) Members,The CMHA is pleased to announce that we will be offering pre-season development sessions for our players.  With an official start date of October 1st for the upcoming season, this is an opportunity for our players to shake off the rust and refine their individual skills.  Our on-ice program is designed for players of all skill levels from U9 to U18 to prepare for the upcoming season. These sessions will include a broad range of drills while following Hockey Nova Scotia‘s Rebound Plan. Our preseason will run August 27th - August 31st and resume September 7th and will run through until the final week of September.  Below you will find the days and times, however, the exact dates and time slots for specific groups will be confirmed once registration is closed. All sessions will take place at either the Halifax Civic Arena & Halifax Forum.  We will be offering Development Session Blocks at a cost of $125 per Block.  Each Block will consist of 5 x 1-hour on-ice sessions, for a total of 5 hours per Block which equates to roughly 1 hour of ice per week.  Players can choose to register for 1 or 2 Blocks. Goalies can register for the Goalie Development Blocks lead by Justin Ritcey. If an opportunity arises, goalies may be asked if they would like to attend the players blocks at no additional cost.  You can register through the attached Google Form. The deadline to register is August 19th and Block groupings and times will be posted on August 23rd. Payments need to be made by e-transfer to treasurer@chebuctominorhockey.com.  Please use the password "hockey" and include the player’s “full name” and “birth year” in the message section.  Players will not be considered registered, and thus will not be eligible to participate, until payment has been received.Please follow this link to register: https://forms.gle/26fjYsLZ7dPbccPs6Due to the COVID-19 guidelines we must follow, spectators will not be permitted at this time, however this restriction may change. All players, on ice staff and volunteers will still need to follow Public Health guidelines. This includes wearing masks into the arenas and in dressing rooms. If players are unable to dress themselves, please have them arrive full gear. Please remember that anyone attending or volunteering in any CMHA sessions must self assess for Covid 19 symptoms and only come if you are feeling well. We appreciate your adherence to this. Until such time, that our Public Health measures change, we will be following these practices.If you have any questions or require further information, please contact our VP Development, Ja-red Glazebrook, at chebuctodevelopment2021@gmail.com DAYS & TIMES- Monday – Friday – 5:00 PM – 10:00 PMSaturday and Sunday – 8:00 AM – 8:00 PMSession times will be announced once Registration is complete.Thanks,Ja-red Glazebrook, VP Development CMHA

Pre Season update- VP Development, Ja-red Glazebrook - CMHA

August 15, 2021Pre-season update Thanks to everyone who has signed up for their pre-season blocks. There is still time and space for those who are interested. A reminder that registrations are due by August 19th. I have received a number of emails regarding ice times between August 27th-31st, and a wide range of conflicts that these dates have. Our fantastic ice scheduler, Katie Murphy, has worked with the Halifax Forum to secure enough ice for us between September 7th and September 25th so that we will no longer have to use any ice in August. Way to go Katie ! So to clarify, you will still receive the same amount of ice per block ( 1 block - five hours, and 2 blocks- 10 hours), but all ice sessions will take place between September 7th-September 25th. With regards to spectators and players arriving dressed. Although some facilities have permitted spectators, at this time it would be very difficult for us to ensure that we have accurate screening and tracking for each and every individual. This is different from the regular season, where each team has a format and a designated safety rep. We are hopeful that restrictions will be modified prior to September 7th. Please reach out to Ja-red Glazebrook, VP Development if you have any questions chebuctodevelopment2021@gmail.com
