**PHASE 2 - Program Information
Submitted By WMHA on Wednesday, December 16, 2020
Phase 2 of the 2020-21 WMHA season is currently scheduled to commence on Saturday, January 9, 2020 and run until Sunday, February 7, 2020.

WMHA would like to thank all of our players, coaches, volunteers, staff and parents for their commitment, passion and dedication in rising to meet the challenges of this season head-on and making Phase 1 a positive experience for our players! 

Keeping our players on the ice has been crucial not only for their development as hockey players, but for fostering their social and emotional health and well-being during what has undoubtedly been the most difficult and isolating period in a generation! 



Phase 2 Length:
4 weeks

Program Structure: Maximum 10 players + 4 coaching staff on-ice
On-ice programming limited to individual skills and tactics
2m physical distancing maintained at all times on-ice
House League - 1 ice time per week
Rep - 2 ice times per week (per cohort on each team)

**In the event that Waterloo Region moves to a less restrictive public health level (i.e. Orange, Yellow or Green) during Phase 2, WMHA will make every effort to adjust Phase 2 programming "on the fly" to allow for a more robust hockey experience, including gameplay.**

Team Structure:
  Rep team rosters and composition will remain "as-is".  House League team rosters and composition will remain "as-is" to the extent possible, however, some player movement may be required to comply with public health guidelines and restrictions.

Fees: $110 - House League $220 - Rep

**Players who were NOT registered in Phase 1 will also be subject to a $48.77 Hockey Canada insurance surcharge.

CCM Game-On Face Masks:  WMHA will provide all players with a CCM "Game-On" Face-Mask for use on-ice.  While wearing the CCM Mask on-ice is NOT mandatory, WMHA is strongly encouraging all players to be good teammates and wear the CCM Mask on-ice in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

CCM has specifically designed the "Game-On" Face-Mask to allow for the breathability needed for on-ice play, while at the same time providing an added barrier to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19.

The two (2) best junior hockey leagues in Ontario outside of the OHL, namely the OJHL (Jr. "A") and GOJHL (Jr. "B") have already made the use of the CCM masks mandatory for their players.  You can see the CCM mask in action in the GOJHL here:  Stratford vs St. Marys (GOJHL)

For more information visit the CCM website.


WMHA would like to remind its members of the following public health protocols:

  • MASKS must be worn at all times inside the arena (players & coaches may remove masks on-ice only)
  • PARENTS must remain in their designated off-ice area and maintain social distancing of 2m at all times
  • The COVID-SCREENING form must be completed by all participants prior to each ice time and checked by the coach

WMHA will continue to monitor the public health situation in Waterloo Region and will take additional measures, including cessation of hockey operations, as circumstances require.
