Dear Association Leadership:
Clarifications from the WAHA Board of Directors as of 1/17/21
Masking Requirements: The WAHA Board of Directors has extended the masking requirements for all coaches, players and officials for all practices and games until the end of the 2020-2021 playing season.
State Tournament Coach Masking Requirements: The WAHA Board of Directors has passed a motion that for the 2020-2021 State Tournaments, any coach refusing to properly wear a mask while on the bench will be required to leave the building and may not return to coach until properly masked. The on-site State Tournament Director will be required to enforce this rule.
Competition in Wisconsin with teams from bordering States:
Illinois: Tier I Games in Wisconsin between Tier I teams from Wisconsin and Illinois are permitted. Tier II Games in Wisconsin between Tier II teams from Wisconsin and Illinois are prohibited. (NOTE: At both Tier I and Tier II, this is the rule that has been in effect since Dec. 20, 2020.)
Minnesota: Minnesota teams are now permitted to play games in Wisconsin, but those teams must have the permission of their Minnesota District Director for this travel, and Minnesota Hockey discourages this travel.
Michigan: Michigan Amateur Hockey (MAHA) permits Michigan teams to play in Wisconsin, but does not allow Michigan teams to play each other in Wisconsin.
