On July 29th, Gov. J.B Pritzker made an announcement regarding youth sport guidelines. These additional guidelines separated recreational sports by the level of “risk” identified and unfortunately, hockey was listed as a higher risk. It does NOT prevent teams/players from participating in tryouts, practices and necessary conditioning programs. However, it does temporarily exclude youth programs from participating in sanctioned games due to the level of contact.
The announcement did not provide any clarity as to when these programs can resume game play. Like all hockey organizations, we are waiting for additional guidance from AHAI.
The Chiefs will continue with our summer programming for our Red and Blue teams. We will shortly release plans for Fall tryouts and keeping our teams on the ice during level 1 and level 2 guidelines.
