Message from the President
Submitted By GVMH - Social Media Director on Tuesday, September 22, 2020
Hello Grand Valley Twisters Family!

For those of you who don't know me, I have enjoyed coaching Grand Valley Twisters for the past four years, and want to make sure that we can offer a fun and safe hockey season this year. 
Last season didn't end the way we anticipated.  This 2020/21 hockey season has started with a lot of unanswered questions and most definitely...uncertainty.  The executive team has been hard at work and meeting regularly to try and stay apprised of the ever-changing COVID pandemic, and the guidelines given by the Public Health Unit as well as OMHA, the Ontario Hockey Federation, and Hockey Canada.  


This season's format will look a lot different to start the season, but rest assured, we are making every effort to get the kids back on the ice in the safest way possible, following all restrictions and protocol outlined by our Public Health Unit.  Currently, we are in Stage 3B outlined by the Ontario Hockey Federation's Return to Hockey Framework OHF Return to Hockey.  In this Stage, the guidelines allow registration, group training, and modified 3 on 3 house league games, with limited travel to outside centres within the boundaries of our Public Health Unit. 

We will continue to monitor the stages as the season unfolds, and adjust accordingly.  Registration is now upon us, so make sure you get your kids registered by September 27th.  For the most up-to-date information on our return to hockey, please continue to check the website. 


Thank you 
Kerry Gillard
