Jerseys, Trainer Bags, All HMHA Equipment (i.e. Pucks/Pails, Pylons, Pinnies, Goalie Equipment) will be collected from 7:00pm-8:00pm on Wednesday March 31st and Thursday April 1st at the main entrance of the Canada Summit Centre.

We are hoping that most equipment can be returned by team.

Please read on for more information regarding equipment return, refunds and AGM.

If the weather permits, we will collect all equipment outside the main entrance. If it does not, we will be set up inside the main lobby. Anyone entering the Summit Centre is reminded that masks and contact tracing are mandatory.

As this year has been anything but normal, collection of equipment is not typical either. We are hopeful that families can help us out with this task by ensuring ALL jerseys and equipment are returned by April 1st. Additionally, if at all possible for equipment to be returned by team, that would greatly help us to be able to organize all of the equipment in the Equipment Room for next season's Equipment Director. Each division ran a little differently this year - in some, the Convenors were the point person and in some divisions, each team had a Manager. Teams that don't have Managers or Convenors who are able to collect, if there could be a volunteer from each team to do the collecting that would be greatly appreciated (each team has 8-10 players). Families will hopefully hear from Convenors in the near future regarding how collection and return of equipment can hopefully be coordinated at the division/team level. We greatly appreciate everyone's assistance with this task.

If there is no coordination by team, all equipment is still required to be returned by April 1st.

Please ensure jerseys are washed and dry before handing in. Please remember that any jersey not returned will result in a replacement fee being charged.

We will begin processing refunds after we have collected equipment.

Families who paid in full for the 2020-2021 season and all in the U9 division are eligible for a refund.

Families will have the option of receiving a refund or a credit towards next season's registration. If Convenors/Managers/Team Volunteers (as applicable) can make a list (by team) of how each family would like any applicable refunds handled, that would be greatly appreciated. If a refund is preferred, please also include the name and mailing address for who is to receive the refund.

The AGM has been scheduled for Thursday, April 29th @ 7:00pm. This will be a virtual meeting.

Please plan to attend. Please also give some serious consideration to letting your name stand for one of the executive positions. A full board has 13 members and there are currently 2 board members who have indicated they intend to return for next season. The executive is the backbone of HMHA and without one, there is no hockey for the approximately 400 kids who play with HMHA each year. The alarm bell has been sounded that this day was coming and we are now in a critical situation for the viability of HMHA. It is no longer feasible to assume the same people will return and fill the positions, as this is not happening this year. Don't let our hockey players down!

Please watch the website for more information regarding the AGM, the nomination process for board members and further details regarding the positions that we will be looking to fill.
