Hockey is Coming Back to St. Louis County!
May 29th, 2020
Hello Chesterfield Hockey Families,
We hope everyone is doing well and staying safe! Your support has been phenomenal during this time of unprecedented uncertainty! St. Louis County is slowly starting to reopen, and Youth camps and sports are finally, yet slowly, beginning to receive county guidance. We know everyone is excited to start hockey again! As we begin our reopening process in St. Louis County, we will be starting off with camps focused on skating and development while maintaining social distancing guidelines.
We place your safety #1 on our priority list. We are leveraging the best safety practices that we have learned from this past month of running our Pacific Rink facility in Franklin County. We are performing temperature checks and health screenings for all who enter the building and we are cleaning the facility regularly with disinfectant to help keep our members safe and the environment sound. These best practices conform to the guidelines from the CDC and local health departments.
Please understand, while we will do everything in our power to stay on track with the following timelines, everything is subject to change should a Federal, State or County mandate be issued. Thank you for your understanding.
Spring Development and Spring Learn to Play
June 15th marks the start of our Development and Learn to Play programs at the Maryville University Hockey Center. If you are registered for these programs, you will receive an email on June 7th describing the start times and objectives for these camps. Our curriculum and objectives remain the same but what has changed is that we are limiting the number of skaters on the ice due to social distancing guidelines. In addition to email, all program information will be available on our Facebook and club website. Thank you for your patience as we work through the process of restarting these programs.
Learn to Skate Remains Delayed
Our rink Learn to Skate program is currently on hold. Stay tuned for more information on new start dates.
Pacific Rink in Franklin County will remain open through the month of June; and ice is currently available for rent by any individual or group. Those interested should reach out to Sheila.Waddell@chesterfieldhockey.com for more information and availability. A decision regarding keeping Pacific Rink open in July will come at a later date.
Central States & MO Hockey Travel Programs
Normally at this point in the year, we would be announcing our Tier II Central States program tryout details; which occurs after the Tier I AAA program tryouts. Due to the shutdown, this timeline has been delayed. Our current plans are to start our Central States camp in late July with tryouts starting the week of August 3rd. Once completed, we will then start the Evaluation process for our Tier II MO Hockey programs. Stay tuned for additional information.
The ‘Falcons Nest’ Bar is Built and Ready for Habitation!
Yes! Your new favorite bar hangout is now ready on the second floor of the Maryville University Hockey Center. The only thing we need is County approval to open it! Food and beverages will be available as you watch your Falcons fly around on the ice from the comfort of the ‘Falcons Nest’! We will announce the opening on our websites as soon as approval is given.
Please reach out to Board@ChesterfieldHockey.com
Thank you for your support! Safety will be our number one priority. We know everyone is excited to resume some sense of normalcy; and we look forward to seeing you soon. See you at the Rink!
