Inclement Weather -- cancelling games
Submitted By Marilynn Thivierge on Monday, November 21, 2016
Now that winter has arrived ...

Hockey means winter, and winter means there can be bad weather.  With bad weather comes concerns about winter driving and what the road conditions are like. When setting out for a game you should always check to see what the weather is like on the way to the game AND perhaps more importantly what it may be like when you are on your way back!! 


Check the weather radar maps and make a decision.  Just because the weather is fine here -- it may not be at your destination.  Conversely, it may be fine at your destination but not pleasant on the drive there. Also, take into account the length of travel time and the types of roads you will be on.

The trainer of the team is the one who can request to cancel the game.  If you feel that you should cancel your game please contact the OMHA centre contact immediately so that the other centre can be contacted.   If for some reason you cannot reach the contact -- contact the other centre to advise them.


While we all love the game of hockey we must remember that at the end of the day, it is just that -- a game!! It is always better to err on the side of caution  -- A game can always be rescheduled -- a life cannot!
