We have received some positive news from the School District that dependent on our Safety Plans and the conditions of sport in BC, that we may be able to obtain the schools for a modified season. Our plans are to start practices in February and games in March with our modified, physical distancing model outlined on our website. We would end off with our Tournament in the 2nd week of June. This timeline would allow us to operate during the tail end of the flu season, and we’re hoping at this point, conditions will somewhat improve after the winter time. We understand that there may be some hesitance to sign up for sports, but we are hoping that are safety measures that we will implement, in addition to our later start, will help alleviate some of these concerns. Some safety features we plan to implement as a part of a season would include the use of face shields on the floor during play, the use of face masks off the floor, a modified playing surface to limit interactions with others, physical distancing at the team benches, no spectators being present at any of the events, and a Safety Manager assigned to each team to ensure proper adherence to the guidelines and rules. For more information and detailed rules and guidelines we plan to follow, please visit our website (rcfha.org) or view the following safety plan attached.
Based on this timeline and our safety plans, we want to gauge the interest among potential registrants as to whether they would sign up to play for a season this year, based on the information provided. The link below is a link to a very short survey to help us gauge this interest. Please consider filling this out so we can have a good idea of the level of interest.
Hello all! Hope you all is able to enjoy a more quiet Christmas season, celebrating within your own family. Despite the changing policies, our executives has been working hard and have put together and got approval of a new and updated COVID safety plan that will allow us to move forward with Cosom Hockey.
Social distancing in the new reality suggest we stay 6 feet apart. Can we still play hockey staying a couple of hockey stick away? Of course!
Well, strictly speaking, as we have mentioned in our COVID response, the executive has been working hard on modifications of the game play that will allow us to continue to have fun while staying safe and following the proper protocol. We have been looking into using different equipment, using face shields or mask, trying different zone plays; lines drawn and redrawn.
We did some trial runs with different ways of playing and organizing. Considered how it might impact the different age groups, and what changes to our rules are needed to accommodate the differences in play.
Here’s one model we are considering. With more distance, we guess you just have to work on that passing game!
We will be submitting our final proposals to the city for approval, following the required team sports guidelines. We are hopeful we will have an fun, albeit modified, season coming this fall and early 2021.
Stay tuned for the latest development as we have them. In the meantime, stay safe, stay fit!
Today we celebrate the 153rd birthday of our nation of Canada. And what’s more Canadian than hockey!
But do you know, when and where hockey came from? Actually hockey’s origins are indeterminate. Indeed, the very definition of the game is at debate. Some observers accept as hockey any pastime where participants on skates use a club, or other wooden implement, to knock a ball or some such propellant about. Others say an activity cannot be recognized as hockey unless it is a contest between teams and conducted under an accepted set of rules.
The earliest recorded reference, according to the Canadian Museum of Civilization, is in the journal of Arctic explorer Sir John Franklin, where he notes that “on October 25, 1825, men from his party skated and played hockey on Great Bear Lake.”
The International Ice Hockey Federation has endorsed a longstanding Montréal claim. It is based on documented evidence, in newspapers, of a specific game between two teams of identified members and a recorded score. The match was played at the city’s Victoria Rink on March 3, 1875. No earlier descriptions of an actual game of hockey with a recorded score have ever been found. It ended, incidentally, in a brawl!
Regardless of it’s origin, there is no dispute Canada has made hockey it’s national game. Just about every boy and girl have dreams about being the next Gretzky or Wickenheiser. Does you kid have what it takes? Not sure if you’d want to make the full commitment? Or you simply just want to child to have fun playing the Canadian game? Why not try out cosom floor hockey! It’s less demanding, focus more on fun, yet the skills you learn can help you lay some solid foundations for any other levels of hockey! Richmond Cosom Floor Hockey Association, run by volunteers, with parents and players just like you, is fully committed to putting together a program that will be engaging, fun and enjoyable for all ages! Even in light of the current COVID-19 situation, just like any other professional sports, we are still committed to put together an exciting season.
