SSMHA Membership:

In accordance with our governing bodies (OHF, OMHA, OWHA, WOAA), the Province of Ontario, the Municipality of Saugeen Shores, and the Grey-Bruce Public Health Unit, SSMHA is excited to return to play!

Changes may occur as guidelines are modified. We will do our best to update our members as these changes are initiated. We ask that our members remain open minded and focused on encouraging players to remain active, have fun, and to take advantage of the opportunities this season can provide.  

SSMHA 2020-2021 Executive SSMHA Return to Play: 

The season will commence on ice with October skates, where players will be placed into 'bubbles' of no more than 50 based on age and skill level. Players will subsequently be placed on 'teams' where they will participate in practices and 3-on-3 or 4-on-4 play within their SSMHA 'bubble'. Per governing regulations, OMHA teams will consist of no more than 10 players (9 skaters and 1 goalie); OWHA teams will consist of no more than  13 players (12 skaters and 1 goalie).

Player development, engagement, conventional safety, Covid-19 safety and overall enjoyment are our top priorities. Registered players will receive an email indicating which group they have been assigned to for October skates. 

WOAA Return to Play: Game play with other associations will be determined based on OMHA and OWHA phase progression. Please note that OMHA and OWHA may progress through their respective phases at different times.  

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What happens if the season is canceled?
A: SSMHA will refund a prorated amount based on the timing of season cancellation.

Q:Will my child have the option to change 'bubbles'?
A: Player movement by request may be accommodated on a case-by-case basis based on availability within other 'bubbles'. Contact your VP to submit your request. 

Q: Can a sibling be brought into the area to watch?
A: No, not at this time. Based on facility restrictions, only the player and one caregiver is allowed in the Southampton Coliseum or the Port Elgin Plex.
