2020-21 Hockey Season Update (COVID-19)

Updated 9/9/2020

In a normal summer, you would be receiving a reminder from us about registering for the upcoming hockey season. All of us are craving that sense of normalcy and, especially, the anticipation of stepping onto the ice. 

Unfortunately, we are sad to share that there remains a great deal of uncertainty about Rattlers’ hockey this winter. While this is not entirely unexpected given what we have seen with youth sports and the challenges of COVID-19, it is nonetheless disappointing. We also felt that it was imperative to disseminate the information we had so that you can explore any and all hockey options this winter for your child.

If things were to go according to plan, the earliest that we would be able to secure home ice would be at the end of November when Berkshire School students are scheduled to be home until after the New Year. While that window is appealing, we can’t predict what access we’ll have to the rink beyond January 1 based on either the School’s needs and/or the state of COVID-19. 

We are looking into renting ice elsewhere and other options for us to run a meaningful program this winter. However, if you feel that you need to pursue an opportunity for your child to play with another organization, please know that you have our full understanding given the circumstances. While we don’t want to lose you, we can certainly appreciate your interest in finding a way for your daughter or son to play more hockey and hope that you’ll find your way back to the Rattlers. You will always be welcome!

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to be in touch with any of us.
