NDMHA Return to Hockey Plan - September Development Registration Open!
Submitted By Tina Dawson on Friday, August 7, 2020
REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN FOR SEPTEMBER DEVELOPMENT SESSIONS

North Durham has created a development series to get our players back on the ice while we continue to work with our sanctioning bodies on a return to play process.

To ensure a spot in one of the program groups please register today by clicking the link here! September Development Registration. Registration will be open until August 24th, limited spaces are available and late registration will not be accepted.  We need to determine how many players we have so we can create age groupings and book ice with our local towns. 

THIS REGISTRATION IS IN ADDITION TO REGISTERING THROUGH HOCKEY CANADA OR RAMP – IT IS SPECIFIC TO SEPTEMBER DEVELOPMENT SESSIONS.  You must also complete your registration through Hockey Canada or RAMP, have a birth certificate on file.  For Warriors registrations, 1 parent must have completed the Parent Respect in Sport Course to participate in these programs.

We will be running with a maximum of 18 skaters on the ice with two instructors and in certain cases the program will be half ice with 9 skaters and 1 instructor, our youngest age groups will have 8 skaters per session with 2 instructors.  This programming is for both Players and Goalies!

Fees for the 8-session program is $80.00, North Durham will be covering the remaining ice costs to keep the program cost as affordable as possible.  Payment is required in full.  Request for refunds can be made to the Association and will be reviewed on a case by case basis.  Session length is anticipated to be 50 minutes per session depending on the Arena protocols. 

Sessions will be twice a week from September 11th to October 8th.  Once registration closes the schedule will be finalized and provided to those that are registered.

All sessions will follow the most current facility protocols with regards to community safety.  Additional protocols will be created by NDMHA for all on ice activities.  These protocols will be communicated closer to our scheduled ice times.

Development programs will be run by North Durham Coaches and independent instructors.  The focus of our development program will be age appropriate and include progressive skills based individual drills and progressive conditioning.  Close contact battle drills and physical contact will not be incorporated into our development program.  This program is for all levels of players from house league to AAA to start the transition back to skating and returning to sport.

What Happens after September?

As you may know, much of the coming season is still undetermined.  North Durham is awaiting more information and guidance from the OHF, OMHA, and OWHA with regards to all levels of Representative Hockey.  As a potential back up plan in the event Rep hockey is delayed until further into the year North Durham will implement a Tiered Recreational hockey program.  Details are still being finalized, but in the event that we are not able to proceed with traditional programming we will provide a phase 1 season from October through to December for players to play within their age group and in manner that is fair and competitive.  This play will continue until we receive direction that Representative hockey is initiated.  The Recreational program will continue with a re-alignment for those players choosing to continue with Recreational Hockey.

As always, thank you for your patience and understanding, our administrator and many members or our board are working hard to create opportunities to bring hockey back for the kids of our communities in a fun, and affordable manner.  If you are interested in helping in any capacity please contact us through the NDMHA website.
