To the Members of our Michigan Hockey Community:
On Friday morning, Governor Whitmer held a press conference to announced a number of recommendations, including a two-week shutdown of indoor sports. This is in response to the increase in new COVID-19 cases throughout the state of Michigan.
The Michigan Amateur Hockey Association (MAHA) will complete its 2021 State Playoffs over the next couple weeks. Our organization has been in contact with the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services (MDHHS), since the introduction of the MI Safer Sports COVID-19 Testing Program. They are aware of our commitment to compliance with the protocols outlined in this program, and they are aware of our intent to bring our 2021 MAHA State Playoffs to a conclusion.
MAHA recognizes our responsibility to support efforts to continue suppressing the spread of COVID-19. With this in mind, we ask our remaining State Playoff participants to be mindful of the following:
1) Weekly testing protocol is still required and must be followed as a condition of continued participation.
