Fall / Winter Season 2020/2021 Update

IceCats Families,

 

We are excited to begin our fall/winter season! Given the most recent news affecting youth sports in Illinois, we are forced to make some adjustments to our game schedules and tournaments this season. We are working diligently to create a successful 2020-2021 season. We are as excited as you to start the season and understand from our league that there will be a delay in the start time for our league schedule. Our understanding from recent AHAI meetings is that we will receive rosters at the same time as all other youth hockey clubs on September 1st. We are now opening registration on the IceCats128.org website for roster evaluations that will begin after our summer program is concluded and will be posted on the website schedule page.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the rink!
IceCats Board of Directors

Fall / Winter 2020/2021 Registration is Now Open

Governor Pritzker's Sports Safety Guidance
IceCats Families,

As many of you are aware, the Governor and his administration announced a new set of parameters that youth sports need to abide by starting on August 15th.  These new guidelines limit hockey to skill sessions and practice with no contact/competitive drills, scrimmages or games.  At this point in time we are waiting for further guidance from AHAI (the governing body under USA Hockey for the state of Illinois) as to the potential impacts to the upcoming season.  As soon as we have additional information, we will provide further communication.

Thank you.
IceCats Board of Directors

 

 
There have been at least two petitions being circulated asking the governor to reconsider the classification of hockey as a high risk sport.  If you would like to review the petition and consider adding your support to it, follow the link below.

Sports Safety Guideline Note

Based on updated Illinois guidelines the IceCats will transition to skates with no-contact, skill based practices and trainings when the Illinois guidance is implemented on August 15th. We will continue to follow Glacier ice rinks safety requirements stated on their website which include wearing masks while not on the ice. All Hockey below college is under the same guidance including high school and travel. More information from AHAI and the league is expected next week and the IceCats will provide an update as soon as we have more information.

Thank you

IceCats Board of Directors

Social Distancing Required

Players and parents,

Please remember that we are still in Phase 4 of our governor's COVID-19 plan.

Social distancing is still required and expected at the Glacier Ice Arena.

  • Masks are required to be worn by ALL players, coaches and parents entering and exiting the rink. Players may remove their masks when heading out to the ice if they would like.
  • Social Distancing while dressing is mandatory for our players
  • ALL players MUST bring their own water bottles and may only drink from their own. There is no sharing of water bottles allowed. Players wouldn't hit the ice without skates or a helmet, a water bottle is now part of their required equipment.

Please remember that we are renting our ice from Glacier and we MUST abide by the rules or we may be asked to leave the rink. We all want to have a fun and productive summer program and if we follow the rules we will.

Most importantly, we do not want to see any of our players, staff or parents test positive for COVID-19. This is for all of our safety.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

See you at the rink.

Thank you.

IceCats Board of Directors
