2020 Pre-season Update

As the League enters our 50th season we find ourselves in a volatile situation due to Covid 19. We need full cooperation from ALL players to ensure the league runs as smoothly as possible. There is still some uncertainty surrounding ice time and we will provide updates as we get them.

What we do know is that Feildian Gardens has moved our Sunday night slot to 10:00pm. We are still waiting to hear from Mile One about ice time for this season plus we are looking at other options.

Coronavirus Precautions

For those of you who have not skated since Covid the rink experience will be very different. Doors to the rinks are locked and we are only permitted to enter the building 15 minutes before our ice time. We must vacate the building 15 minutes after we exit the ice. There will be no beer allowed on site. We will have dressing room access however social distancing rules must be followed in dressing rooms and on the bench. Masks must be worn at all times when entering and exiting the building. We also have to submit a list of players who are skating each night in case contact tracing has to occur.

Failure to adhere to these rules will result in us losing our ice time. If you have any questions contact the executive and we will try to answer your concern as best we can.

Remember we are all in this together, and must cooperate to ensure our league survives through the pandemic.

Executive Update

Our executive is similar to last year though Greg will be stepping out of his role as vice president. We welcome Jon Walsh to the board.

President: Chris Leaman
Vice President: Jon Walsh
Tresurer: Stef Barnes
Secretary: TJ Duffenais

2019 Round Fees

This year the executive committee has decided on increasing round fees by a small amount.

The first half of the season will be $250 and will cover games until Christmas. The rate for the second half of the season will be comparable.

The league is a not-for-profit and as such operates as close to break-even as we can. Last year the league did not carry a positive budget. Additionally both arenas, Feildian and Mile One, have increased their rates and we are short a number of full-time skaters this season.

Fees Due in October

This year there was a change in way we pay each arena and we are on the hook in advance of season. Therefore the execute has set a fee deadline of October 28th for full-time players to pay their fees.

Players who have not paid their fees by this deadline need not show up for November skates. They will not be allowed to play.

Please speak to your captain if you require a special exception.

Fee Structure for Spares

There is a new rule for spares in terms of payment this year. Spares are required to pay $60 in advance. This covers four games which you are guaranteed to play. Games will be $15 each after your fourth game.

This rule is related to collected fees as stated above but also to ensure spares are motivated to play when called upon.

Paying Your Fees

You can pay your fees directly to your captain. Payment can be accepted in the form of:

  • Cash
  • e-transfer to your captain
  • Cheques made out to “NAPE Blackhorse Hockey League”
