Welcome to the Gillette Hockey Association (GHA), home of the Gillette Grizzlies. GHA is an amateur, non-profit 501(c)(3) tax exempt youth hockey organization based in Gillette, Wyoming. The Gillette Grizzlies youth hockey program offers a fun, safe opportunity for Gillette youth to learn the game of hockey.
We wanted to take this opportunity to update everyone on the latest in our attempt to have a youth hockey season this year. As we stated in the past, our intention is to have a season this year and that is the intention and desire of each of the associations in Wyoming. We are working together with each association, as well as WAHA President George Stilson, to craft a statewide variance to allow for hockey to be played as normal regardless of where we play in Wyoming.
We have been receiving questions about the upcoming WAHL season with regard to potential coronavirus restrictions or cancellations. As far as we know, the season is going to happen without any restrictions. Should that change, refunds of player registration fees will be made on a pro rated basis. For example, if the season is canceled before it starts, 100% of the player registration fee will be returned (minus the non-refundable Sportsengine fee). If we play half of the season, one half of the player registration fee will be returned (minus the non-refundable Sportsengine fee).
Hopefully this helps answer some questions regarding the upcoming season. Please proceed with registering your players. We need to know how many players we will have at each age level before the Scheduler's meeting in September. Early bird registration ends July 31st. A $200 late fee will be assessed starting September 1st.
Thank you and enjoy the rest of the summer!
