2020-21 hockey season canceled.
The health and safety of our members have always been and will always be at the center of the decisions of your Association. However, you are well aware that in the current context, it is very difficult for us to predict when our hockey activities will resume and even what forms these activities will take. It is therefore with great sadness that we make the decision to cancel the rest of the winter activities. To this effect, we refer you to the announcement of January 20, 2021 of the Trente-Ouest Hockey League.
Obviously, many of you are wondering about the possibilities for reimbursement. Rest assured that your Board of Directors has worked very hard and is still working to get beneficial calculations for our members. Remember that fixed costs are billed to the Associations by Hockey Canada and Hockey Quebec and that ice rental costs have been incurred. In fact, many of our members had the chance to participate in sessions at the beginning of the season.
We are currently finishing the calculations between the payments received and the fixed costs that we will have to pay for this shortened season. For the majority of parents, you had opted for 3 payments. Therefore, please be advised that the two installments scheduled for February 1, 2021 have been canceled. We are now working to see if a refund will be available on the first $ 200 you had already paid and will contact you over the next two weeks.
For parents who have paid in full, we will reimburse over the next two weeks the equivalent of the full payment less $ 200 (equivalent of the first fixed fee payment). Once our calculations are complete, you will receive a 2nd reimbursement for an amount not yet determined for the portion of the fixed costs.
For the parents whose kids are in pre-novice (1 and 2) and initiation, we will begin this evening with reimbursements in full of the fees you have paid. Your child's presence on the ice was so minimal that the fixed costs are not large enough to charge you. We ask you to be patient - refunds will be processed over several days as we have multiple members to reimburse.
Finally, dear members, we ask you to monitor our website and our facebook page over the next few weeks. Depending on the different government announcements, the situation may change and we may be able to offer different hockey activities.
Thank you for your understanding and patience!
