GLHA Communication Updates: Vaccination Protocols
Submitted By Sionainn Pryce-Hynes on Thu 09 16, 21
Dear GLHA parents,

We would like to apologize for the delay in communication regarding our Return to Play protocols with respect to COVID-19. We have been working with our legal team, the Middlesex London Health Unit, and Alliance Hockey to ensure our parents have the most up-to-date information to protect everyone’s safety in our arenas and that our Return to Play protocols and forms are all up to date.     




We are very much looking forward to having all our players return to the ice and playing with all their friends.                             
We would like to thank the respective member associations for their dedication and hard work through this process to ensure our players are able to return to the ice safely.  There have been many hours spent in meetings and discussions to get us up and running for the 2021/22 season. It is finally time to get the players' skates sharpened, gear sized up, and have our players ready to play.   

Our season begins with tryouts for the Mustangs on Sept 21st. Minor Development tryouts will start shortly thereafter, and House League will follow afterwards. Please keep an eye on your local association’s website for these details as their calendars will be updated regularly.  

Welcome to the 2021-2022 season!  As we begin our return to the ice, we would like to highlight some areas of change for this season. 

London Junior Mustangs

Over the past season, a few things have changed regarding registration for the London Junior Mustangs. First, Hockey Canada launched a new hockey registration platform, Hockey Canada Registry (HCR) 3.0. This new system will replace the HCR 2.0 system you have used in the past. It is a little different and it will take some getting used to but we will help you through the processes. As this is a new system, players will need to re-enter all of their personal and payment information. For more information please visit this page to watch a tutorial on how to register a new participant, an existing participant and multiple players.

Secondly, the London Junior Mustangs now have their own registration link! Players do not register with their Home Association anymore. Players will now go directly to the London Junior Mustangs website to register for tryouts and team registration.

Registration will be offered in two parts this year. Register your player first for tryouts and then, if your player makes the team, retun to the registration site and register for the season. 

If your Home Association would be either Oakridge Aeros or North London Nationals, you will register for Purple Mustangs here.

If your Home Association would be either London Bandits or West London Hawks, you will register for White Mustangs here.

London arena expectations- All parents, volunteers, coaches, spectators are expected to follow the following guidelines.  Not following the guidelines may impact the ability to complete our seasons. We are asking all parents to please follow the guidelines established below.

Parents are asked not to move any chairs, as they are set up in designated locations. Do not leave any valuables with your belongings, as there will be no way to secure them while players are on the ice. Leave valuables at home.

Alliance Hockey Return to play program protocols

 Alliance Hockey has worked in conjunction with Hockey Canada, and the Ontario Hockey Federation to provide a Return to Hockey framework for all hockey participants.  The Alliance will require all players, coaches’ officials, staff, and volunteers (12 years of age and above unless exempted through the alliance) to have provided proof of Covid-19 immunization. All members will be required to have received their first dose by September 17, 2021, and be fully vaccinated by Oct 31, 2021.

As our communities begin to see the effects of Wave 4 of this pandemic and as the frequency of COVID-19 cases in amateur group sports continues to increase, ALLIANCE Hockey believes mandatory vaccination is an important step to support our members efforts to prevent the spread of this virus. Ensuring that all eligible individuals are vaccinated will provide us with the best opportunity to keep our participants on the ice and will support larger cohorts and regular team play.


 Please click on theses link as the GLHA will be following these frameworks as well.
