Hey Folks!

First off, I would like to thank you all for being so patient during the pandemic.  It has been a battle for all of us, but it looks like we may finally be able to PLAY HOCKEY!! The Governor issued a letter last Friday stating he wanted High School Sports opened back up on February 1’st.  He has left the final decision up to the Local County Health Departments. We are hoping to have County Directives to open safely by the end of the Week. 

In the meantime, we have been hard at work with the Hudson Valley High School Ice Hockey Club to develop protocols, finalize budgets and schedules. It is looking like we will have a 10 to 15 game schedule, depending on our actual starting date.  Ideally we are planning on starting on February 6 and running through the middle to end of April.  We are hoping we will still be able to have playoffs and an All Star Game starting on April 9’th and running throughout the end of April.  We are making every attempt to schedule weekend games; however it may be necessary to play a game or two during the week to fit in the best schedule. Due to the McCann Ice Arena currently being shut down, we are planning on playing at Ice Time Sports, Kiwanas Ice Arena and the Brewster Ice Arena.   I will send out details as they come in to keep you as informed as possible.

The season is going to ramp up very quickly.  Please make sure you have logged into the Sports Sign up Play app and link your calendar. It is very important you log in with the same email address and password used for the Orange County West Ice Hockey Club website in order for them to link up properly. If you need help, feel free to contact me at .  Once we have an official schedule, it will be loaded into the Leagues website, http://www.hvhsiha.org/,   which will link to www.OCWHockey.com and your sports sign up play app.  This will be the main way for the coaches, parents and kids to communicate. You will also be able to see scores, stats and schedules for every team in our league.

We will have a parent and player meeting once we have a set schedule and agenda for this season. We are hoping this zoom style meeting can happen one evening next week.  Details will be emailed to you once we have the plan set. 

Practice Jerseys and Team Facemasks are in.  They were provided free of charge by the club.  If your player has not received the jersey or the mask, please reach out to me.  Game Jerseys and Uniforms have been ordered.  Due to the ongoing pandemic, production is behind schedule.  We are making every attempt to have them ready for the start of the season.  I will send a follow up when they come in.

We are currently planning a few special events for the end of the year.  The kids have had a crazy year and we are hoping  to finally celebrate a great season.  We will have a Senior Night to honor our graduating class and their families.  We are also planning an end of the year celebration sometime in April or May.

Thanks to everyone for helping out with the fundraising so far this year.  We are planning on some really great events, activities and gifts for our players. With all your hard work, we are hoping to offset the costs of our end of year events!  If you haven’t done so, please check out our latest fundraiser, the OCW Super Bowl Pool!  It is an online 50/50 super bowl pool that automatically updates after each $20 box is sold. Final payouts total $1,000.  It’s super easy!  Just copy the link and send it to friends and families.  You can even share it on your social media accounts.

First and second installment payments are now due.  Please make both payments ASAP if you have not yet done so.

Thank You All for Your Support!  WE are looking forward to finally Kicking off the 20/20 High School Hockey Season!
