Passing of Raymond "Ray" Heenie

Raymond "Ray" Heenie

March 6, 2021

 

Dear Yale Youth Hockey Community:

 

With great sadness I share with all of you that Raymond "Ray" Heenie, a member and player on our 14-U AA team passed away last evening. Ray loved hockey, was a valuable player, a great teamate and friend to many Yale Youth Hockey players. 

Our 14-U AA team has decided to play their scheduled games tonight and tomorrow. "That's what Ray would want us to do."

Tomorrow at 12:30PM following their 11:20AM game at Northford, we have arranged to have two Grief Counselors from "BCH" Behaviorial Health Care speak to the team. They will also be available to any players, coaches, parents and friends who would like to speak with them individually. We ask all to assemble just outside the Northford Rink on the lawn.

Our thoughts and prayers to the Heenie Family

Health News & Reminders

Health News & Reminders

  1. If your player or any family member has symptoms of COVID-19, or any other illness, your player may not participate in any hockey activities.
  2. If your player or any family member has symptoms of COVID-19 and are awaiting test results, your player may not participate in any hockey activities.
  3. If your player or any family member has tested positive for COVID-19, your player may not particpate in any hockey activities.
  4. If a player or coach on your team tests positive for COVID-19, and that player or coach was at hockey within 48 hours of their symptoms starting, Yale Youth Hockey is required by the Connecticut Hockey Conference (CHC) and the Connecticut Department of Health to pause all hockey activities for your team for a period of 14 days.

Please see the links below for any additional information.

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html

https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.leagueathletics.com/Images/Club/2695/Misc/NEW%20Addendum%205%20and%20Flowchart%20CTDE_DPH.pdf

 

Additional COVID Quarantine Guidelines from the CT Department of Health:

Known cases must isolate but can return 10 days after symptoms began (or their test date if they are asymptomatic), assuming their symptoms have completely resolved for 24 hours or more.  Individuals quarantined because of close contact with a known case need to stay away from close contact activities (including sports) for 14 days and there is no test out option to shorten that quarantine.  Here’s why:

The risk of individuals exposed to a known case of COVID-19 developing COVID-19 symptoms and/or testing positive for SARS-CoV-2 remains significant enough throughout a 14-day period after last exposure to warrant quarantine of those individuals for a full 14 days.  The current recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and adopted by DPH, to allow for reduced quarantine of less than 14 days is dependent on a person’s ability to continue with daily COVID-19 symptom screening and continuous mask use when outside of the home, as well as the necessity to avoiding gatherings with people who are not in their immediate household, who are over 65 years old, or who have medical conditions that place them at increased risk for COVID-19.  This would preclude gathering with other athletes for engagement in team sports prior to completion of a full 14-day quarantine period.  As such, regardless of whether a shortened quarantine period allows individuals to engage in daily activities prior to completing a full 14-day post-contact period of separation, athletes, coaches, and other participants are precluded from engaging in athletic activities involving close contact (within 6 feet) with other individuals until at least 14 days after their quarantine period begins.

And definitely remind everyone that the less they do in their social lives outside of hockey, the more likely they are to be able to complete the hockey season without repeated quarantines of the whole team and opponents.  As we have been telling high school kids/parents, you can have a social life or a sports season, but it is unlikely you will be able to have both right now.

Hockey Update

Good evening all Yale Youth Hockey members. We hope this message finds you well.  Earlier today, Governor Lamont announced that effective Monday, November 23rd, all youth sports in the state of Connecticut must pause all activities until January 19th. All practices and games currently on the calendar through Sunday 11/22, will take place as scheduled.

Here is the link to the Governor's news conference; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1-0jzNe610&feature=youtu.be

 We are hopeful that we will be able to continue and complete a full hockey season once activities resume on January 19th. We will continue to monitor developments and will keep everyone informed of any updates. Happy Thanksgiving and stay safe.
