Last updated 9-11-2020 10:00pm - We know there are a lot of questions, discussions, and opinions regarding the mask/facial covering requirement for all kids (youth, high school, etc.) playing sports - including hockey - set forth by our Governor.
Governor Whitmer released Executive Order (EO) 180 on the evening of September 9, 2020 at 6:15pm clarifying the use of masks; there are no provisions in EO 180 for medical intolerance reasons or medical waivers. Neither of our governing bodies (USA Hockey & MAHA) nor KOHA has the legal authority to waive or modify the Executive Order from the Governor’s office, so masks must be worn at all times on the ice. To that end, if you as a parent feel that your child wearing a facial covering (in addition to their cage or bubble/face shield) puts them at risk due to an existing medical condition, they should not participate.
On the evening of September 11th, MAHA shared their updated Return To Play Standards, and also included some points of note: (There are no provisions in Executive Order 180 for medical intolerance reasons or medical waivers with respect to wearing a mask, so that part remains unchanged.)
The Kalamazoo Optimist Hockey Association (KOHA), established in 1965, is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to provide every boy and girl in southwest Michigan the opportunity to enjoy at excel at the game of hockey.
KOHA's vision is to be a regional destination and national leader for youth hockey. From Learn To Skate through high school-aged players, KOHA has programs for everyone! KOHA is proud to be one of USA Hockey's original Model Associations, and continues to forge new partnerships to provide our players with the best development opportunities.
