As you all are aware Oswego county has lifted some of the restrictions regarding SPECTATORS. While this is exciting news it also means there is a LOT to plan and we are currently in the process of developing the process for this to occur. Please contact your team reps or coaches for more details.
Also, as some of you are aware there is a significant issue with the roof that has caused damage to the ceilings. I have been in consistent communication with the Town (who we lease the building from) and they are working and planning t resolve this. It is unlikely it will be able to be further repaired until farther into the spring.
Lastly, we have been working to get LiveBarn at our rink and it should be installed in the coming weeks. As I am sure you can appreciate this vendor has been very busy with the increased demand for this service. Be aware that we are working diligently on all of these items.
Attention Salmon River Families it is that time of year again for board elections. We have 4 Board positions up for elections: Shannon Tanner, Karen Dalin, Steve Newton and Dan McNitt. If you are interested in running for the board please do one of the following options by March 9th:

Greetings Salmon River Families!
We wanted to thank everyone for your cooperation and assistance with getting our players in and out of the rink safely and following the CDC guidelines. All of the hard work has allowed us to keep the rink open and kids on the ice! With the rising number in COVID-19 cases across the counties we wanted to reach out and just explain the procedure if your child tested positive for COVID-19. If this does happen please contact your coach immediately and provide the necessary information. We would ask that you also contact your coach if anyone in your household tests positive for the virus as well. The coach will then notify our President and the necessary steps will be taken to ensure everyone’s safety.
Secondly we wanted to inform everyone that as of Monday January 18, 2021 we had a change in officers. Shawn Stern has stepped down as President of our Board and Steve Olson will be taking over this position. Shawn has done a lot for our organization over the years. He had a big part in the recent upgrades to our rink and helped ensure that our kids were able to skate this year while remaining safe. Shawn has decided to take a step back, he still plans on being part of the rink and helping with future projects. Our Board has asked Steve Olson if he would resume the position of being President. Steve agreed to step up and take this position on! Steve is very familiar with the duties and we have no doubt that he will do a remarkable job! Steve’s number one priority has always been doing what is best for the kids and we appreciate Steve’s dedication to our association.
Our website has been changed and Steve’s contact information is listed.
In preparation for reopening the Haldane Arena, a set of guidelines have been established. Please make sure you download and read the information. More information will be coming including practice times and start date. The SRIHA board looks forward to a safe and positive reopening and season.

Good Evening Salmon River Hockey Families,
We hope you and your family have been safe and healthy during this COVID-19 Pandemic. Hockey is slowly making a comeback across the US, but there is still NO HOCKEY in New York State. To help stop the spread of COVID-19, New York State has suspended all on-ice and off-ice activities including games, scrimmages, practices and tournaments.
The NYSAHA board has been working with the government agencies and officials to get hockey safely started throughout the state. Hopefully soon we will have some answers regrading our hockey season.
Please be patient with us as we enter into this uncertain time. There will need to be some mandated changes to our rink before we can re-open.
Please keep checking the website for updates.
Stay Safe & Healthy,
Salmon River Board of Directors
