SEASON INFORMATION for 20-21 (Athens Youth Hockey Association | Athens Ohio | Bird Arena)



Planning principles:

  1. The safety of players and their families is of paramount importance.
  2. Members (players and their parents) and coaches are responsible for complying with the orders of state and local health departments, with USA Hockey and MidAm requirements, with the rules of any venues where activities take place, and with Athens Hockey policies. The Board must hold them accountable.
  3. Players should have the opportunity to play hockey this season.
  4. Teams need a level of autonomy to respond to changing conditions with plans that meet the commitments and priorities of their members and coaches.
    (a) High school planning is guided by the active structure of the Ohio Scholastic Hockey League (OSHL), and their season plan is designed to enable them to successfully complete the league season.
    (b) In the absence of an active league structure, 14U and younger teams are provided with more autonomy.

Fees have been set based on a 24-week season of practice and home games at Bird Arena, beginning September 28 and ending March 14. Fees will be prorated according to your season plan if play is interrupted.
