Tryouts Postponed

USA Hockey mandates all tryouts shut down due to coronavirus


Please see letter below from CHC March 13, 2020 3:45 PM.

Dear CHC Presidents,

To say the past couple of days have been crazy and unfortunate would be an understatement. USA Hockey Sectional, Regional and National Tournaments were cancelled, schools and universities have shut-down, professional and collegiate sporting events have been cancelled, and we know of at least three rinks that have shut down, with other non-sports related venues following suit. Lastly, Connecticut is in a State of Emergencyand it is likely more restrictions will be placed on our activities in the coming days/weeks/ months. We are in uncharted territory folks, as such, we must take action for the good of the public and protection of our participants and their families.

With the situation in-flux, and based on USA Hockey's directive today giving the Affiliates authority to make decisions based on current events and local circumstances, Effective Immediately the CHC Executive Committee is prohibiting any USA Hockey sanctioned play, including but not limited to tryouts, for ALL USA Hockey Member programs in the Connecticut Affiliate (aka: Everyone) until further notice. CHC will monitor issues related to the COVID-19 Pandemic and may seek approval from the Board of Directors to alter this directive as information becomes available.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in the matter.

Chuck Wilkerson
Connecticut Hockey Conference
