It has been brought to the Board’s attention by the East Section, from MULTIPLE SOURCES, that a
number of East Section players have recently tested positive for COVID-19; that some are sicker than
others, with some players very sick; and in some cases have passed the virus on to family members
and/or friends.
 
The players who tested positive participated in non-sanctioned tournaments held in New Hampshire
(Exeter) and in Connecticut (Champions of Cromwell). Players (and some coaches) who participated
in these tournaments may now have contracted COVID unknowingly, and could also be passing the
virus along to other players in their home rinks and to family members and friends.
 
The other Sections may have similar examples of noncompliance. NYSAHA and its Section
Presidents have stated in numerous emails and notices posted to the NYSAHA website, that hockey is
indefinitely suspended from ALL ON-ICE, OFF-ICE and administrative activities in order to help
prevent the spread of COVID. A player who participates in a non-sanctioned tournament or other non-
sanctioned activities does not mean that player (or coach) is immune from COVID. Participating in
out-of-state tournaments, with players from other States, is not a very smart decision; violates the
safety precautions put in place by NYSAHA and the Sections; and violates the New York Governor’s
Executive Orders with regards to high risk sports such as ice hockey. The safety and wellbeing of all
of our players is our utmost priority and should continue to be so.
 
The NYSAHA Board has been working with New York Government agencies and officials to get
hockey safely started throughout the State, since under USA Hockey we are ONE DISTRICT.
Reckless decisions that are now leading to positive tests amongst our players will only hurt our
attempts to get our sport reopened by the State Government. These reckless actions resulting in sick
players and others will not help our cause at all
 
NYSAHA and its Section Presidents remind everyone that those coaches who normally work for your
Association, but who have decided to take matters into their own hands, are potentially bringing the
virus back to our rinks and possibly infecting other players who have kept themselves safe and are
abiding by the Governor’s Executive Orders and the safety restrictions of NYSAHA. Playing games,
scrimmages, and participating in league activities and tournaments are not permissible at this time.
Associations must understand that actions that directly tie their organization to participation in non-
sanctioned events risk discipline down the road.
 
We all need to be smart here, and we need to contain COVID so we can restart ice hockey and keep
our players healthy and safe. Overzealous coaches and parents can set us back and cause more
restrictions being placed on our sport.

its spread like wild fire at ccm 68 as there were many players from the ct tournament who ended up having covid from all over the 🇺🇸
As long as those “scouting reports” posts top 100 ranking from these events to sell their subscriptions and kids post their pictures taken at events in Instagram, parents continue pay to send kids to these elite events. Local hockey governing body is disconnected from the supply demand relationship.

This is BS, it takes weeks to get your test results so I have a strong feeling this was fabricated for the purpose of spreading fake news

no, it does not take weeks...takes about 48 hrs.

Re: Oh, NY is NOT happy!!!

Holy F@{k! Is this an overreach of or what? They think they control ALL hockey. Threatening orgs with discipline ? F-Off.

Re: Oh, NY is NOT happy!!!

What are the real numbers? How many kids? The NH Union Leader states 12-14 kids contracted the virus in CT and 2 days later notified a parent
in Exeter they had tested positive so he pulled his son out. Are we to believe that many got Covid, felt sick, got tested and got their results in 2 days? I don't buy it. The NY is know better. They are not providing any real details. Just spreading rumors.

Re: Oh, NY is NOT happy!!!

Champions of Cromwell has been closed since July 26th due to “catastrophic mechanical issues” so you have to wonder...just how old and inaccurate is this info?

Re: Oh, NY is NOT happy!!!

Who needs accurate info when you can just use scare tactics to control the masses?

Re: Oh, NY is NOT happy!!!

what does that have to do with the price of eggs in China? The tournament was played in Cromwell...Games on the 26th were moved.

Re: Oh, NY is NOT happy!!!

Stay close and try to follow along, according to contact tracing the CT tournament in question was July31-Aug2 (see the link below). So unless they were playing roller hockey on the concrete at Champions Ice, they weren’t in Cromwell.
