2020-21 Registration is now available

posted Oct 1, 2020, 9:08 AM by Verner Minor Hockey Association
Registrations are now open.. However, they are different this year, you must register online through our website [here], if your child has always played for Verner Bulls then you will need to open an account and from there just follow the instructions. If you are having difficulties you can contact registrar@vernerbulls.ca.

We will be utilizing the Sturgeon Falls arena this year, in the event that more ice is required they will then open the Verner arena, but for now everything will be in Sturgeon. As some of you may know the arena was set to open October 13th, but do to the increase numbers of COVID cases, the municipality has decided to postpone the opening to October 19th. They have also stated that if the numbers keep climbing, there will be further delays in opening the arena. 

 All practices will be half ice and we are also hoping to have 2 practices per week until games can begin. Games will be 3 on 3 and 4 on 4.
There will be very strict guidelines this year and I am asking that everyone do their part. First off if your child or any of the coaching staff is sick, you must stay home. Secondly, we asked that kids arrive at the arena 10 minutes before their start time and be already dressed. You will be able to put skates and helmet on, once in the arena. You must wear a mask in the arena (parents and players). Only 1 parent/guardian is allowed in the arena. No siblings are allowed in the arena, even if they are practicing right after. Each team will need to have someone at the arena 15 minutes before to take attendance and contact numbers (ideally the team manager).

Also, this year due to physical distancing rules, we are not able to accept 3-year-old players, unless they have a parent who will be willing to be an on-ice helper. This would actually apply to any child who is not able to stand on their own. Coaches will not be able to support/help these children get up.

We are still looking for coaching staff for all levels, if you are interested please go to our website and fill out an Interest in Team Staff form [Here]. If you were part of the coaching staff in the past and would like to continue, please put your name forward.

Hockey will be different this year, but all these new rules and guidelines have been put in place so that our children can still enjoy the game, physical activity and help with their mental health.

This email may not reach everyone, therefore if you want to forward this email please do so.

Do not hesitate to contact me, if you should have any questions.
