Dear Chevy Chase Club Hockey Families and Coaches,
We ask that you please review the attached letter from the Potomac Valley Amateur Hockey Association (PVAHA), our regional USA Hockey affiliate, which contains important information about recent events related to youth hockey, PVAHA’s COVID-19 Playbook, and the protocols that we are required to follow this season.
Since early October, PVAHA has identified over 60 COVID-19 cases on youth hockey teams within the affiliate. Thanks to your efforts, we have not yet had a positive case within our program. This is obviously good news. However, this could easily change given the nature of this virus, the recent increase in cases in the region, and the upcoming holidays. We ask that you please continue to be mindful of your activities, particularly over the holidays. It is critical that each of us continue to do our part to make hockey and skating activities available to the more than 1,000 children and adults who participate in them at the Club.
In particular, please continue to follow our COVID-19 protocols, do not congregate in the courtyard or spectator areas, wear a face covering, and err on the side of caution in deciding whether or not your player should come to the rink. A copy of our current COVID-19 protocols is also attached.
The Skating Committee
