Established in 1972, TGHA is the oldest girls hockey association in NYS, and one of the oldest in the US!
~ Starting October 3, 2020 ~
As we approach the start of hockey season, TGHA has been busy planning what our upcoming season will look like under the current Covid-19 pandemic. As per NYS Phased reopening guidelines, ice hockey is restricted from playing games and scrimmages. However, we are allowed to do 'individual or distanced group training or activities' and "organized low/no-contact group training (i.e. sports camps and clinics)." Until NYS allows games/scrimmages, we are moving forward with a Fall season of practices with skills/drills as the main emphasis. We are hopeful that January 2021 brings us the ability to schedule/play games for the second half of our season.
A few decisions have been made by the TGHA Board including shifting our start date to October. We are targeting starting Monday night practices on October 3th. Registration will be made available in September. We are still navigating the details of practices with The Rink, but it will include limiting the number of players at one time on the ice, limiting the number of coaches on the ice, no parents allowed inside The Rink for practices and shifting the previous skills sessions from Wednesday night to Saturday. We also are planning on moving the December Shooting Stars Tournament to a Springtime date, also with the hopes that by March/April we will be authorized to play games.
As we navigate these details, we want to hear from parents about their interest and concerns with having their daughter play hockey with TGHA this upcoming season. Please watch for a survey from your team's Head Coach to help us tailor the season to address your concerns and needs. We welcome your thoughts and ideas for our girls.
Thank you for being part of the TGHA community - our primary focus is keeping our girls and their families SAFE while working under this 'new normal' we all are managing!
