The EPSHL excited to get our hockey community back on the ice. The EPSHL and member clubs have worked diligently over the past few months to ensure that this can happen in a safe manner.
Hockey this season will look different than we have been used to in the past and we will need the support of our members to assist our coaches, volunteers, and players as they make their way back to the ice. The EPSHL and member clubs have been monitoring the ever changing guidance from AAHA and USA Hockey to maintain a safe and healthy environment for all of our participants and parents/guardians/spectators.
We know the pandemic has taken away many things in youth sports that we are used to seeing and this may be disappointing, however we are hopeful that everyone can embrace and support what we are able to do given the circumstances.
Please click on the link that will take you directly to the Registration Information which sets out in detail everything you will need to know with respect to registration. Please make sure to read all information/documentation as some things have changed due to COVID. We advise all participants that due to COVID and the facility limitations and restrictions mandated for this season the EPSHL will be adopting a zero tolerance policy regarding conduct. We appreciate your understanding in this regard.
League registration is now open to gather player information for assisting the rostering and assigning players to clubs. This registration is no cost. Club/Team fees will be defined and distributed once the teams are assigned and formatted for 2020-2021.
The season is targeting a game start date of December 1st 2020 (subject to change) and will run concluding in late March (subject to change).
Specifics related to game format will be made available in November once Club/Team mergers and rosters are completed.
Please note, our program must function under the restrictions and rules put forth by the AAHA, USA Hockey and BodyZone Sports, therefore changes may occur prior to our official start. We remain committed to sharing information with you as it becomes available. Please visit the website frequently for updates.
It will take a strong collective effort from our volunteers, coaches, players, and parents to ensure a safe and positive return to hockey and we are always looking for talented and dedicated individuals looking to help the league in various ways. We are confident our hockey community will meet this challenge and we look forward to seeing you at the rink soon.
