Illinois COVID-19 Update: Tier 3 mitigation

Good Afternoon PREP Hockey families,
With the new Covid guidelines that have been put out to Illinois and changes to the RM and MP rink guidelines, we are making the following changes to our teams schedules after this evening's events.

  1. We will be cancelling all scheduled events starting Friday, November 20th  until further review.
  2. Over the next week we will follow the information and changes closely, we will update everyone on scheduling updates going into the first week of December.
  3. Our coaches will keep in contact with the players to continue to help them focus on hockey and development.

We understand that this has been a challenging situation for everyone not only in the hockey year but with your personal lives. We encourage all families to take this time to be safe and enjoy your families during the Thanksgiving holiday. 

The PREP board and coaches want to thank you for your continued support of the players and the program. We are confident that we will get past this time and continue with the 2020 - 2021 hockey season!

If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to any of the board members or your players coach and we will assist anyway we can.
