2020-21 Presidents Year End Report

The 2020/2021 season hockey season did not go as planned this year. In fact, you couldnít possibly plan for this season. It seemed like every day, rules and protocols were changing, and although we wanted to get our hockey players on the ice our goal was to ensure that everyone was staying safe. We didnít want to put our kids and families at risk in our rinks.

During my first year as the REMHA president I had a lot to learn. What I learned quickly was how strong and supportive our REMHA board is. The experience and the dedication that every board member brought to this year was remarkable. No one could have planned for a year like we had and not once did anyone in this group throw in the towel or disconnect themselves from our goal which was to have the kids/young adults in our community play hockey in a safe manner. We had a lot of ideas and discussions and never had any arguments. I want to thank all of our board members for the resilience and commitment that they demonstrated this year and the way that they truly supported one another on a day to day basis.

Secondly, I want to thank our community. Our area was impacted early in tryouts by Covid-19 and we had to adjust, accept and persevere as a group to navigate through a time when things were changing daily. Our families were great to work with and understanding that we were working through an unprecedented year both recreationally and personally. I truly appreciate the support of the community while we worked through restriction changes, health challenges and other obstacles that made the year a challenge.

I would also like to thank Hockey Winnipeg and the other associations for all of the work that they did throughout this past year. They are a really dedicated group and work together to support a sport where a lot of people donít understand or appreciate all of the intricacies that are involved in order to make the hockey players experience as good as possible for thousands of families under the Hockey Winnipeg jurisdiction.

Most importantly I want to recognize the hockey players that play in the REMHA. I want each athlete to know that we did everything that we could to get them out onto the ice when we were able to and I am optimistic that next year will be better than this season. I canít wait to see games played, practices held and our hockey players having fun with their friends again.

I look forward to seeing everyone around the rink again in September.

Best regards,

Jarred Dolyniuk
