    10/9 Season Plan Update

    Warrior Family,

    As a follow-on to last week’s update, given that the Cleland Ice Rink is still in repair, your Association Staff has spent the last week coordinating a 30-day contingency plan to continue our goal of teaching this great game of hockey to the children of our community.  Your respective coaches should be sharing with you their plans no later than Monday, October 12th.  Though it is our greatest desire to have Cleland’s doors open tomorrow so that our kids can get back on the ice, we do hope that this plan meets your expectations (given the circumstances) and allows you to plan accordingly.  As always, feel free to contact myself or anyone else on the Staff if you have any questions or concerns.

    10/4 Season Update

    Warrior Family,

    It is with the deepest regret that I have to inform you that the opening of the Cleland Ice Rink has been again delayed.  Late last week the Board was informed by MWR that the chilling system is still failing and unable to maintain ice on the rink.  While we wait for Cleland to provide us an update on when another round of repairs will be scheduled, your coaching staff is taking immediate action over the next few days to put together alternate Courses of Action (COAs) for the next thirty day timeline.  You can expect your coaches to reach out to each of their respective groups by the end of the week to go over their plans & have open discussions on your thoughts regarding the situation and proposed ways forward.  

    As a parent with children planning to participate in the LTP, 8U, and 12U programs, I sympathize with everyone’s frustration and concern over our situation and welcome any comments or inputs you may have.  That said, I do still believe that our hockey program has something great to offer our kids and continue to be optimistic that we’ll overcome this temporary adversity. 

    Your decision to make Cape Fear Youth Hockey Association your hockey home is an important one and we greatly appreciate your patience with this matter. We are working hard to stay current and provide you with a great program, and as mentioned, will look to update you on our future proposals by the end of the week. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact myself at the email address below, or any of other board members that can be found on our contact page at  Thank you.
