We Need Your Help

Good Afternoon Membership

The Town continues to work with the various levels of government, Health Agencies and the Provincial Sporting Bodies to prepare for the upcoming hockey season. As they have communicated before, the Town's current plan is to open TransCanada rink on September 8 (tentative), opening other pads, as the demand requires. Currently hockey organizations are in a “hold” position waiting direction from governing bodies, however, for the Town to plan re-opening of ice they need to know the expected usage. The primary use is minor groups such as Halton Hills Minor Hockey, North Halton Twisters, Halton Hurricanes, Georgetown Skate Club, Acton Skate Club, Acton House League and Georgetown Raiders. If these groups cannot operate or are on modified programs (reduced registration because of COVID-19), the Town needs to review how much ice is really needed. Halton Hills simply cannot justify or support opening all their ice surfaces if there is very low demand.

With this information, and assuming the Acton Arena will open as scheduled October 5th, the Acton House League Hockey Association is considering the following;

Season starting October 16th - 18th (weekend after Thanksgiving) which would give us 19 weeks plus Day of Champs weekend. With the current distancing rules in place the teams would be restricted to 9 players per team allowing 4 skaters plus a goalie on the ice and 4 players on the bench. It is unknown what the games might look like.

What the Acton House League Hockey Association is wanting to know is whether your son or daughter are going to play hockey this upcoming season or is the concern of contracting the COVID virus (from other players/skaters, family members or team members) going to keep you away from the arena? 

 We are asking that if your intent is to play hockey next season please register via our website. This will give us an indication of the number of players in each division. If you do not want to pay the registration fee at this time you can choose the Money Order option and we can reconcile payment if and when the season starts. 

 The Town is looking to our Association to advise them of how many hours of ice we will be committing to this season so they can determine whether there is sufficient demand to install ice in Acton. Not knowing how many players are returning this season makes our commitment or the decision of whether we can operate as an Association very difficult.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns we will try our best to answer then.

Thanks in advance
