WYHA has put answers to many Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ) about the 2020-21 season at: https://www.wyha.com/events/frequently-asked-questions/260    
Questions include when hockey activities will be allowed, safety, helmet and mask guidelines, what program to register for if your child was a Beginner in 2019-20, refunds if shutdown, and many more.  Rink Safety Rules for Genesee Valley and BGIP are posted on the FAQ page.  Parents should assume the rules at Webster also apply at other rinks (all 3 rinks who have sent us their plans are consistent with each other).
