Provincial Restrictions and Arena Closures

Posted by Andre Leduc at Jan 7, 2022 4:04AM PST ( 0 Comments )

Provincial Restrictions and Arena Closures. First off, on behalf of the NCHA board of directors, I’d like to wish you all the best of health and success throughout 2022. I want to thank all of our coaches and volunteers who go above and beyond to ensure we keep everyone safe as we continue to deal with Covid-19 . With the new provincial announcement yesterday and the return to a Modified Step 2 of the Provincial Reopening Plan, recreational facilities, including arenas, will close temporarily for 21 days. This comes into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, January 5, 2022. Nickel City is hoping for a return to hockey on January 26th 2022.

Coaches and managers will be updated as information becomes available .

Gus Lescault President NCHA

A more formal document will be coming in the near future, however I wanted to send a note to advise that the NOHA Board of Directors are in support of a resumption of game play, where permitted by the Public Health Unit, beginning on January 3, 2022.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Jason Marchand
NOHA Executive Director
