For our families

As of Feb 19, 2021 updates in RED:

First and foremost we want everyone to be aware that all of our COVID return to play rules and guidelines are set forth by Minnesota Hockey under the guidance and direction of the Minnesota Department of Health.  Our number one priority is the kids and keeping them safely skating!

We request that all coaches and families be as proactive as possible when experiencing any symptoms or exposure related to COVID-19.

If anyone in your home is experiencing symptoms we ask that you please fill out the form below, inform your team manager/COVID contact and Jessica Ables via email, right away so that we may take the proper next steps for you and your team.  

Anyone with a known exposure of a COVID-19 positive person must self quarantine from CRYHA hockey events from the date of exposure per MN Dept of Health guidelines. *Update to come*  This includes siblings and other family members. 

The more proactive we are about this together we can hopefully maintain keeping teams from shutting down completely if we are informed from the onset. #CROneTeam!

 FILL OUT THIS FORM for symptoms, exposures, or confirmed cases. I.E. any confirmed cases or exposures 10-14 days before we return and so-forth, so that accurate information can be provided for players return to ice.

In addition, MNH has voted to extend our season, the dates are currently as follows:

  • State: March 26-28
  • Regions: March 19-21
  • Districts: done by March 14
  • **Mites, Squirts, 8u, 10u, can play league play through end of March as they do not play regional or state tournaments

*MN Hockey Return to Play Guidelines*

CRYHA, and ALL other MN youth hockey associations, are governed by Minnesota Hockey so WE as an association have to follow the MN Hockey Guidelines
