Wings Against Racism

Dear Wings FamiliesSome of you may already be aware of the events that took place a few weeks ago in PEI involving inappropriate racial comments being made towards a Halifax Hawks player. In light of these recent events the Halifax Hawks Association has taken a stand against racism and will be boycotting future events in PEI until the incident has been fully investigated.To further combat racism they are providing stickers to all their players to put on their helmets that say Hawks Against Racism. To show our support for the Hawks Association as well as all families affected by this we will also be providing all of our players, coaches and referees with Wings Against Racism stickers.We will be picking up the stickers tomorrow and hope to get them out to teams as soon as possible.This type of behaviour has no place in society and we as an association will not tolerate any form of racism. We encourage all of our members to actively denounce any such behaviour and show their support by wearing the sticker.Wings Against RacismCHBA Wings ExecutiveThank youJamie Aalders

Updated Policy - Travel to New Brunswick

  Message from Hockey Nova Scotia – Nov. 3, 2021 Re: Travel to New Brunswick     Good afternoon everyone, Following our consultations with Nova Scotia Public Health and Nova Scotia Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Robert Strang, we have been advised that fully vaccinated teams can now travel to New Brunswick for sporting events provided that the event (game, tournament, etc.) they are attending has a requirement for both spectators and participants to show proof of vaccination (POV).   Teams with unvaccinated players under 12 are not permitted to travel to tournaments in New Brunswick where a circuit breaker is in place. Please visit the Government of New Brunswick website to find up-to-date information about what areas of the province are currently under circuit breaker restrictions.  While travelling to New Brunswick for competition, all local COVID-19 protocols and Public Health orders must be followed. Our Chief Medical Officer Dr. Tina Atkinson would also like to strongly encourage all our teams and hockey families to follow these guidelines to further decrease the risk of a COVID-19 exposure:   ·Wear masks at all times while indoors (only removing them for eating, drinking, and playing hockey). ·Always wear masks while in crowded outdoor spaces where physical distancing cannot be maintained. ·Avoid crowded restaurants (and only visit restaurants where servers are masked). ·Wash and sanitize hands frequently. ·Avoid close contact with people you don’t know. ·Consider shopping for essential items only.   We would also like to remind you all to follow the Rebound Plan 2.0 and keep a close eye on exposure notices from the province.   Sincerely, Amy Walsh

Please note that parents will be liable for lost or severely damaged jerseys at a cost of $50 per jersey to be added to next season’s registration if not paid at the end of the current season. U18’s have pre-paid their jersey deposits because they may not be returning the following season. Game Jerseys can be picked up when required by contacting me at chbawingshockey@gmail.com    Also new this season We are providing home/away socks for all players. This cost will be reflected in Team Billings. Replacement socks can be purchased from me throughout the season at a cost of $20/pair. VERY IMPORTANT: GAME SOCKS ARE NOT TO BE WORN DURING PRATICES Socks can be picked up by providing a team list with sizes required for each player and contacting me at chbawingshockey@gmail.com to arrange a time.
