Dear Cincinnati Area Youth Hockey Players, Parents & Coaches,
I would like to begin our June Newsletter, by giving everyone a heartfelt apology for everything that we are all going through, as a collective group in the hockey world and in our daily lives due to COVID-19. I would also like to thank everyone for your kind words, your support, your understanding and cooperation as we try to offer your son or daughter a positive hockey camp experience this summer. I would also like for you to know, that if for any reason our camp is cancelled, re-scheduled or if you do not feel comfortable with your child attending our camp this summer, you will either receive a full refund or a full credit for next summer (your choice). The Sport International Hockey Academy is committed to accommodate our valued customers at the highest level and that your decisions will be honored by our organization, immediately!
WE HAVE RECENTLY RE-SCHEDULED OUR CINCINNATI CAMP TO JUNE 29 - JULY 3 - Sports Plus Arena (changed from June 15 - 19), due to COVID-19.
We currently have 9 Skater slots and 2 Goalie spaces still available for our June 29 - July 3 camp (newly added camp) To quickly register online and to avoid disappointment, please click on the following link;
** Keep in mind, we may be asked to limit our registrations by our host arena, to meet CDC Guidelines, your decision to register as soon as possible is suggested. Once we meet our recommended limit, we will be full!
SIHA SAFETY MEASURES FOR THIS SUMMER (in coordination with our host arena)
    1. Our staff will do our best to keep a 6' distance from all students throughout the day, if our staff should have to come in close proximity (tying skates, helping with equipment, etc.), our staff will then put on their mask.

2. We will ensure that our staff has their temperature taken each morning (we are being told that the host arenas will conduct the temperature tests with our students) on a daily basis, upon entrance with a handheld thermometer.

3. We will NOT be offering our typical Sunday Orientation (as in the past) to avoid large gatherings. We will be asking everyone to arrive at 7:45 AM on Monday, (before camp). We will be asking the players to bring all hockey equipment & stick, change of clothes, running shoes (sneakers), water bottle and lunch (if not on the lunch program). All students will be assigned their dressing rooms and given their schedule, helmet tags at the time of check-in at 7:45 AM on Monday. Arrival time for the rest of the week would be 8:15 AM.

4. If you feel more comfortable to have your child wear a mask when not on the ice, feel free to do so. We would ask all children to bring a small container of hand sanitizer to wash their hands after each event, throughout the day.

5. We will set-up a plastic sneeze guard between our student and staff, during individual video analysis each day.
* We are also being told by most of our host arenas that we will be spreading out our students throughout the locker rooms and in the lunch area, to ensure Social Distancing!
