SSH COVID-19 Update
Games: All games are still suspended until further notice, with a target date to resume as 5/4/2020. That date may move up or back depending on what is most appropriate and when we expect rinks to reopen. We’ll announce the reopen dates as soon as they are available. As previously noted, all missed games will be added to the end of schedules for BYOT and Standard Game Season Passes.
Unlimited Memberships: Membership renewal charges have been paused as of tomorrow, 3/28, and will not charge again until 5/15. The amount charged on 5/15 will be for 5/15-6/14 membership month, minus any amount due back from paid membership time from 3/13 forward when games were not offered. Resuming on 5/15 is a target date and is subject to change based up or back based on when games resume.
Tournaments: The 2020 Boston’s Best Tournament in Andover that was originally scheduled for 4/4 through 4/5, and the 2020 Boston’s Best Tournament in Quincy that was scheduled for 5/1 through 5/3 have both been cancelled. Deposits on both have been issued as of today. If it makes sense to offer a tournament once hockey resumes then we’ll reach back out to the teams that were registered.
Games: All games are suspended until further notice. We’ll announce reopen dates as soon as they are available. As previously noted, all missed games will be added to the end of schedules for BYOT and Standard Game Season Passes. Also, Unlimited Memberships will have an adjustment when the amount of time when games were unavailable is known.
Tournaments: The 2020 Boston’s Best Tournament in Andover that was originally scheduled for 4/4 through 4/5, has been postposed to May 9th and 10th. The 2020 Boston’s Best Tournament in Quincy is still on as scheduled as of now for May 1st through 3rd. These dates will be reevaluated approximately 4 weeks prior, and adjusted if needed.
As of today we are postponing the 2020 Boston’s Best Tournament in Andover that was originally scheduled for 4/4 through 4/5, by two weeks. The new dates for that location will be 4/18-4/19.
Below are the updated reopen dates:
Andover – 3/23
At this time we’ve decided to suspend all games and operations temporarily. Several rinks have closed out of an abundance of caution and we expect more to follow.
We plan to reopen on a rolling basis, provided it’s reasonable to do so. We’ll continue to evaluate the situation along with our rink partners. Below is what has currently been set as the reopen dates as of today:
