Dear CIHA Members:
We know how difficult it has been not knowing what changes are coming.
We expect to hear from Governor Walz today about the status of youth sports. As we try to live our lives day-to-day and watching the news of increases of COVID-19 cases in our community, we have heard hints that there may be a pause to all youth sports, including hockey.
We want to provide you with information regarding CIHA's plans if MN Hockey, the Minnesota Department of Health, and/or our other governing bodies mandate a pause to youth sports.
We will continue to hold practices, scrimmages, games, and host our tournament and jamboree unless we have been advised we cannot, or the rinks are closed due to health risks. We will be following the guidance from MN Hockey and District 10. We continue to ask for your help in ensuring your players are following all guidelines in our rinks to help stem the spread of the virus within and outside our hockey community.
If a “pause” happens:
· We will cancel all team events for the duration of the pause.
· While we will do what we can with our available options, we want you to be aware if any of your tournaments are cancelled, we may not be able to find a replacement this season.
· We will NOT be immediately issuing refunds or cancelling payments if the season is paused.
o It is our hope that we will be able to restart and complete the season after any pause and your registration fees will go towards the remainder of the season.
o It is possible the season could get extended, as it was for Fall Sports, in which case your registration fee will go towards the costs of this extension.
o We will be reviewing our overall costs/expenses, and should we have less team expenses (ice/tournament cancellations) than we calculated in our fee, we will provide each player a refund after we review each team’s costs. We will issue refunds once it becomes clear what the outcome of the season will be.
We know this pandemic has not been easy, and we truly appreciate everyone’s patience and flexibility during this time.
Thank you for your understanding,
Minnesota Hockey implemented several updates to its Phase 3 Return to Play Guidelines on October 25th, 2020.

As some of you may be aware, CIHA has a scholarship program that helps families in need help pay for their child to play hockey. We understand that situations arise that unfortunately may make a family choose between everyday necessities and keeping their child playing a sport they love, all while learning great life lessons.
As a 501(c)3, CIHA can accept a tax deductible donation from anyone wishing to donate to a new program that will supplement our scholarship program. We are calling it "Keep A Kid In Hockey". This can be an anonymous donation, if you wish, and can be for any amount, or be specified toward something in particular.
If you'd like to "sponsor" a mite, for example, you can donate the amount to cover that cost. If you'd like to sponsor a player whose family you know may be going through a difficult time, you can do that as well. Lastly, you can donate a specific dollar amount that will supplement our current scholarship program, which works with a specified budget and looks at each situation independently.
Thank you for your consideration and help "Keep A Kid In Hockey" if you can!
