PMHA Announcement
PMHA is happy to announce that we are moving to begin our 2020-2021 season on Monday, September 28, 2020.

We have been working in conjunction with Hockey Canada, OHF, OMHA, the town of Petrolia and the Lambton County Public Health Unit to ensure a safe return to hockey for our membership. Based on the stage we are in currently we will be separating each age group into tiers based on the level players were at last season for skill development programming. If COVID cases stay in check and we continue to move forward we may be able to move to teams of 9 skaters and a goalie for 3-on-3 play inside our health unit (Mooretown, East Lambton, Lambton Shores). This would not happen until November at the earliest. If things progress there is a chance we could get back to 5-on-5 play in the new year.

We are finalizing the player groupings and expect them to be released in the next day or two and will be looking for coaches to help out. If we end up playing 5-on-5 in January we will have more traditional coaching interviews.

Registration will be separated into 2 sessions, September to December 2020 and January to April 2021. Total registration rates will apply, but be split in half for each session. Details on how we will do this will be posted shortly as well.

It is important that we take our COVID-19 protocols seriously and the arena staff have set up their own protocols, including wearing masks, one parent per child, pre-entry health checks and contact tracing. PMHA is in full cooperation with the town and arena staff on this front. Nicole Veenema is the COVID-19 Advisor for PMHA. She is a great resource for any COVID-related information, her email is [email protected]

Thank you for your patience, we look forward to a different but fun season this year.
