    ASHA Summer Letter

    By webmaster 06/18/2020, 9:30am AKDT

    Dear Alaska Hockey Families:

    While we know it is summer, with the solstice and all of our beautiful summer Alaska activities at hand, we couldn’t be more excited to see hockey returning.  Too many of us had our seasons stop abruptly, and many have been anxious to get back out on the ice.  ASHA would like to first thank each of you for exercising the proper social distancing and safety measures during the these difficult times, and each of you have been doing your part to keep all of us safe.  As the rinks are now starting to reopen, we encourage you to renew your USA Hockey membership today to help our programs plan for the upcoming season!

    While things may look a little different as the season gets started, we can assure once you get back on the ice and feel the wind rush across you face, it will feel like the same game you know and love.

    Safety is our top priority and Alaska State Hockey Association and USA Hockey will continue to develop recommendations for on-ice activity centered around a safe and fun environment. 

    We are here to support and make your transition back to the rink as easy as possible. Our local rinks have, and continue to work diligently to follow national and local healthcare recommendations.  The O’Malley Sports Center Ice Rinks have opened up and their full COVID-19 Mitigation Plan is available for review on the bulletin board by the main entrance to the ice rink.  The Brett in Wasilla has opened, and we anticipate additional rinks to start to open up over the next weeks and months across the state, each with proper COVID-19 Mitigation Plans in place.

    The following resources have been made available through USA Hockey to encourage best practices, in addition to helping answer questions you and your family may have:

    We know everyone is excited to reunite with their Alaska hockey family. Together, we will ensure that you feel confident and safe in their return to the rink.

    Yours in hockey, 

    Darryl L. Thompson ASHA President
