FLU Outbreak

EMERGENCY NOTICE FOR ALL TEAM, COACHES, PARENTS & PLAYERS

2018-01-15

Considering the recent tragedy of the young hockey player in Connecticut & the Flu outbreak, please read this notice and follow the guidelines
 

Please see below to what we have posted and extra precautions we are taking as a rink and organization:
 
Other information can be found on the CDC web site and is very helpful for rink owners, coaches, and players (https://www.cdc.gov/flu/index.htm). 
 
Effective immediately, along with other area hockey organizations, we are taking special precautions for the next few weeks because of an increase of influenza (flu) in the local area. Although anyone can get the flu, it is most serious in the elderly, very young children, people with chronic illnesses (such as lung disease, cancer, heart disease, or diabetes), or those with weakened immune systems. Influenza spreads easily in discharges from the nose and throat, usually when an infected person coughs or sneezes.   
We ask that you do the following to help us prevent further spread of flu among our families:
 
  • Do not attend practices or games if you know you are sick.  Wait to until you have been without a fever for at least 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication).
  • Frequent and thorough hand washing is a MUST. Wash your hands frequently using antibacterial soap or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • There is to be no sharing of water bottles during practices or games.
  • Players must bring their own water bottles to games and practices.
  • Gloves are to remain on at the end of the games on the handshake line.
  • Please be diligent in either washing/spraying/wiping down all hockey equipment (including sticks, bags, etc). 
 
 If you or your players(s) experience flu-like symptoms or a fever please see your physician or pediatrician.
 
We appreciate your cooperation in helping us to manage this situation and will let you know when the flu outbreak precautions are no longer necessary.

Congratulation's Liberty Cup!

Congratulations to all the Bear teams that participated this past weekend in Philadelphia at the Liberty Cup Tournament.  The Bears were represented by 7 teams.  We had 5 of our teams make it to the championship game with the Squirt B and Bantam A winning in the championship game.  Our Squirt A, A-1 and Pee Wee A teams also competed in the championship game playing their hearts out and just coming up short.  Our Pee Wee B and Bantam B although they did not make it to the finals played in very close games that could have gone either way.

 

The Squirt B team won the championship in a shootout.  They tied the game in regulation late in the 3rd period by pulling their goal.  The game then went to a 5-minute 4-4 overtime with both teams getting scoring opportunities.  They final won when their first 3 out 4 shooters scored, and the Valley Forge team only had 1 goal after 4 shooters.

 

It was great to see some many families stay around to cheer on the different teams in the championship games.

Congratulations Squirt B's

Congratulations Squirt B Liberty Cup Champions!

Congratulations to the Squirt B team for winning the Championship at the Liberty Cup. The team went 3-0 in pool play. In the Championship game the SQB Bears defeated Valley Forge 3-2 (OT-SO). The Bears needed to fight back twice in the 3rd to tie the game at 2-2.  The latter came with 44 seconds remaining when they pulled the goalie while being down a man. The game came down to a shootout after neither team scored in the 5-minute overtime.  In the shootout, Valley Forge jumped in front scoring on their first attempt.  The SQB Bears immediately answered tying it up on their first attempt and never looked back scoring on 2 of their next 3 attempts while not allowing Valley Forge another goal. The team fed off the large Bears crowd that steadily grew as other Bears teams filed in and roared on the walk-off goal in the shoot-out.
