As of 5/4/20
To: All Rink Directors, Program Directors, Players, Coaches and Parents,
SAHOF has been in constant contact with all rinks in the State during this time of crisis. Many of the rinks have utilized this time as an opportunity to make improvements to their facilities and are taking all the proper steps to make the rink a shining example of health and safety.
In a meeting last evening, the SAHOF Board of Directors weighed the input received by each facility, and the projections from our State and local governments in respect to lifting restrictions on ice rinks to determine a path forward towards starting tryouts for the 2020-21 season.
Accordingly, the SAHOF Board of Directors have set the following dates for Tier I and Tier II tryouts to convene for the 2020-21 season:
Tier I Tryouts – July 10th – 12th
Tier II Tryouts – July 13th
Dates are still subject change
No Organizations are permitted to offer player commitments or conduct any kind of tryouts prior to these dates. Complaints for alleged violations will be directed to the Disciplinary Committee of SAHOF.
This years SAHOF Annual Meeting will be held virtually Saturday, June 20th utilizing Zoom. All information for the meeting will be posted on the SAHOF website www.sahofhockey.org.
As we work together on a collective path back to hockey, we realize that this pandemic has caused many of our members hardships that may make a return to hockey difficult. As we move forward, SAHOF will be working with Organizations and rinks to strategize on different ways to assist families impacted financially that may be in need of support as we work to retain as many of our members as possible.
SAHOF Executive Director
