The following is an update from the BMHA President...

Hello Stingers Families,

Following today’s announcement by the Provincial government regarding the pending lock-down starting on December 26th, the BMHA has suspended all registrations for now.

The BMHA will be providing a full refund for those families already registered for the January to March portion of the 2021 season.  Those families will receive a notification from TeamSnap once the refund has been processed.

Today’s announcement has required the BMHA to revisit previous decisions and directives surrounding the registration process, including issuance of refunds.  A new registration process will be developed and implemented in January.  This new registration process will reflect a reduced cost due to the shortened remainder of the season.  I just ask everyone for continued understanding and patience as our board members adjust and apply these changes.

The BMHA board will be convening to decide on the next steps for the association once the lock down is lifted and hockey operations can resume.

Communications will be sent out to the membership once programing decisions have been made by the board and additional information becomes available from HEO and the GHA regarding the status of hockey moving forward.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as the board responds to this latest challenge.

Wishing everyone and their families to stay safe and healthy.

Grayson Lafoley

President - BMHA
