The West Northumberland Girls Hockey Association is hoping to get players back on the ice soon.
A recent survey conducted by the organization returned about 200 responses, which were overwhelmingly positive.
WNGHA president Shawn Davis says “97 per cent are excited to get back on the ice. The majority of those rep players that played rep hockey last year are looking to try to…as we go through these phases, in the new year in 2021 get back into some competitive hockey.
“For now we’re just looking to try to keep everybody safe and get back to the rink and start skating again,” he added.
If parents have a child interested in playing girls hockey, the time is now to pre-register. The time to do so is now with the deadline of Aug. 26 looming. Visit www.wngha.ca to do so.
There is no-cost to pre-register, but the WNGHA needs to have estimated registration numbers in order to secure ice time at the Cobourg Community Centre and possibly other local venues.
