Trenton Over 30
The Trenton Over 30 Hockey League has been in existence since approximately 1969. The league has 7 teams and is a no checking league which utilizes a 3 line system. All players are re-drafted each year.
The league is primarily for players 30 years of age or older of which there is a predominance. The league does allow players under 30 years of age if said player is classified as a 2nd or 3rd liner. We classify all players prior to the start of the league play so that each player is competing against players of his caliber. Age is of no consequence on the 2nd or 3rd lines due to our method of classifying each player.
There is a pre-season skate at which time the players are classified and rated. There is then a public draft which is conducted. Every effort is made to have a fairly even caliber of players on each team.
The games and pre-season skates are at Trenton's Kennedy Ice Arena.

Just to give an update on the restrictions for the Draft Skates. These are a must to follow so that we are not shut down by Wayne County.
Players will not be able to enter until 15 minutes before they skate and must leave the locker room within 15 minutes after the skate. This allows for proper sanitization to be done.
The bathrooms are locked. Showers and bathrooms in the locker rooms are off limits at this time. Bathrooms located in the lobby and in practice rink for public use are available.
The skate is in the Feldman Arena tonight. The entrance will be through the front doors and exiting out the back of the arena.
The suites and upstairs are closed.
As we do for the kids, we will need a record of everyone in the rink participating or spectating with contact information. They will also need to use the QR codes located at the entrances and certify that they are not sick when entering.

With all the chaos involving C19 and the rink re-opening next week, I'm really not rushing to get us back on the ice. I spoke with Tim Beaker and he is setting up a two week trail with all the youth associations to try and gauge how the new practices and protocols are going to work. I did tentatively reserve six sheets of ice for our preseason / draft skates. Times are not set but the days are Monday through Wednesday the first two weeks of October. With either the second Tuesday or Wednesday reserved for new players only. (If we have enough)
Second order of business, I've only gotten returning responses from roughly half of the league. Coaches if you could please reach out to your players from the previous season and get a list of players planning on returning.
No updates on Draft Dates or Locations. I'm waiting on returning responses. The Coaches meeting will be held after the draft skate. Again no updates on date or location.
Any other questions or concerns please feel free to Email or text Joe or myself.
