2020/2021 Hockey Practice Schedule
as of 10/14/2020
Practice's Start TOMORROW Sunday, October 18th, 2020
I continue to think our strategy-pivot practice persist play-is sound and makes defensible sense.
Let’s hope it turns out our co-ordinated efforts with Parks and Rec either work well as a defensive measure or end up not being necessary because Telluride has such success otherwise managing the coronavirus before it even gets to the rink. I’ll take either outcome if it gets us to March 10th with everyone still on the ship.
I know that even with the overhang of the pandemic reminding us to be here now we will ultimately fall into the routine of a hockey season which means that hopes and dreams of young people will be all mixed up with everything else they’ve got going on in their lives. Hockey should be easy going, enjoyable, fun, an outlet, exercise, a challenge, an ongoing game, a place to chase the laser pointer. Let’s work to keep it that way. Just like any other year it’s going to take a daily effort by everyone to keep the positive vibes flame lit.
It’s up to us. We will be the ones to keep the rink open. Our actions will drive the outcome. I’m not counting on a vaccine, I’m counting on parents. It may sound corny to say, but the beauty of a public use facility is that the ongoing usage is in the public’s hands. Bottom line is please don’t send your even a little bit sick kid to the rink or if there’s been COVID exposure that you’re aware of. Just like with public lands, parents have to recognize that there’s a stewardship aspect to our program. I will need your help.
This is our time. There’s a YX Factor that’s in play. There’s a Wayne Gretzky when he was a kid component going on. And there’s some beautiful unknowns to be discovered in this special year ahead.
