Parry Sound Hockey Club 2020-2021 Hockey Season Now Over
Submitted By dan on Thursday, February 25, 2021
To the Parry Sound Hockey Club Membership, it is with great disappointment we are letting our our membership know, that due to Covid-19 and the associated restrictions, also leading to the confirmation that the BOCC will not be putting the ice back in, we unfortunately will not be offering any further Hockey programming for the current Hockey Season. 

As such the executive of the PSHC has approved a partial season refund that we are in the process of issuing to all families who paid for the 2020/21 season, with refunds being issued to primary contact on record as part of the player registration, for this current season. The refund was calculated based on the number of ice times that were cut off (which were exactly half of our proposed season) as well as taking into consideration that the club had a number of certain fixed expenses that had to be paid in order to run a season for any length of time. One such example is that each player was given two jerseys to keep, as with Covid protocol, players were not able to reuse club jerseys as they had in past years. We also tried hard during the short season we had to maximize skills development opportunities by offering extra ice sessions with certified skills coaches to provide unique and fun learning opportunities that differed from what a player would experience at their usual weekly practice, and other required and standard items such as the Hockey Club Insurance, which is paid on yearly basis, no matter the length of the year. Additionally in efforts to help family's this year's registration costs were significantly lower than those in past years and to also help with and also account for the required later start to our season.

Although it is disappointing that our season was cut short, we hope that your players enjoyed the months of hockey that they were able to experience during this very different hockey year, and we all hope that next year we can all enjoy a much more typical hockey season.

On behalf of the Parry Sound Hockey Club Executive, we want to thank you all for your participation and patience in this past hockey season. We hope you all have a great spring and summer and we will look forward to seeing you all in the upcoming 2021-2022 hockey season, which we hope to make great a hockey season.

Dan
