IThaca adult hockey association

The Ithaca Adult Hockey Association was formed during the summer of 1999 by a group of players from both the Cass Park and the Rink leagues. The primary goal of IAHA is to promote a healthy and fun recreational adult hockey league in Ithaca by providing oversight of the league administration, improving parity among teams, promoting sportsmanship, and encouraging players at all skill levels to participate. 

Games Sunday January 16th - 7:15-yes 9:00-no

The 7:15 game tonight between Lightspeed and Rotary will be played as scheduled.

The 9:00 game between Maguire and Orcutt is postponed due to anticipated icy conditions.  The game will be reschedule.

Postponed Games from Monday January 10th & Tuesday January 11th

We are currently working on rescheduling these games and will announce the new dates when confirmed.

COVID-19 Update - January 10, 2022

We request that you inform us if you do test positive for COVID.  We’ll notify the players and referees who attended the games you played during the suspected exposure period.  Unless we have your permission, we will refer to you by team only and we will NOT use your name.  Ideally, we’d like to share the date of the onset of your symptoms, date of your positive COVID test, and games you played.  Please notify Eric Cyker via call or text (607-280-4426) or by email at eric@catcyk.com.

By us being able to quickly notify potential player and referee contacts, they can take appropriate steps to test, quarantine, or monitor so as to limit exposure to others in their family, work environment, community, and our league.

As discussed in the COVID-19 policy in the registration materials prior to the season, we require all players to follow the COVID-19 guidance of the Tompkins County Health department.  If you do test positive for COVID-19, these are the current guidelines:

Those who are positive for COVID-19:

  • Isolate at home away from others for 5 days from symptom onset or test date.
  • If asymptomatic at the end of 5 days or symptoms are improving, isolation ends, and you should wear a well-fitting mask around others for an additional 5 days.
  • People who are immunocompromised should continue to follow the full 10 days of isolation.
  • People who are unable to wear a mask for 5 days after isolation should follow the full 10 days of isolation.
  • Notify close contacts that they may have been exposed, should monitor themselves for symptoms, and follow the quarantine guidance below.

The complete guidance, including quarantine instructions, is listed at https://tompkinscountyny.gov/health/covid19-2022-01-05-update-shortened-isolation-and-quarantine-periods-and-updates.

As an example, this is what the above means for a player testing positive on a Monday, or experiencing symptoms on a Monday and later testing positive. 

  • Day 0 (positive test or symptoms) – Begin isolation – Monday
  • Day 5 - End isolation, if you meet criteria – Wear a mask – Saturday
  • Day 10 – End of mask wearing – the following Thursday

Does this mean you should wear a mask for a few games, if you return to play before the end of 10 days?  Yes, it does.

As uncomfortable as this may be, recognize that COVID-19 is a respiratory virus, and we do tend to breathe rather heavily during play, and on the bench between shifts.  If you cannot tolerate a mask, we ask that you do not play.  We’d like to be able to continue and complete the season, and we ask for your cooperation.

Let’s all stay well.

Current COVID-19 Protocol

Updated 10/28/2021

Masks are required to be worn at all times while inside the building (lobby, bathrooms, locker rooms).  Do not enter the Cass building until 15 minutes before your game, and please leave by 15 minutes after your game.  To allow for extra breathing and elbow space, teams will use both locker rooms on their assigned side.  The showers are not available for use.

IAHA 2021-22 B/C Division Registration

Updated 10/22/2021

Hello Hockey Players,

It’s time to play some hockey.  The registration site is now available and can be accessed from the link below.  Registration for full time players is closed.

League information and rules are also available below.  Here are some important details and additional information.

  • All players must complete a COVID-19 vaccination series two weeks prior to skating with the league.  You must provide a copy of your vaccination card during the registration process.
  • If you’ve waited a couple of days to register, you may want to confirm there is still space in the league before you register with USA Hockey.  Just start the registration, and, if we’re full, you’ll receive an OUT OF STOCK message before you need the USAH number.
  • We are planning to play all games at Cass Park.  Start times are 7:15 and 9 on Sundays, and 9:30 or 9:45 Monday through Thursday.  There may be some make up games or playoff games at The Rink later in the season.
  • Cass Park currently has an indoor mask rule (lobby, locker room, rest rooms), which we will be following.  As conditions and guidelines change, we will notify all players of those changes.
  • Games are planned to begin on Sunday, October 24.
  • Registration for subs is not available until after teams are formed.  Either find your own team and have the captain make a request to the board (this is strongly preferred), or email eric@catcyk.com that you are wanting to sub.
  • We are planning a team roster reveal party during the week of October 18th.  We’ll send details when the details have been confirmed.

Welcome back!

A/B Division Status

September 2021

For the past four seasons, we did not have enough A/B players willing to commit to a formal league. The IAHA will not be offering an A/B League this season.

An A/B league will be run out the Community Recreation Center, the Rink.  If you are interested in the A/B league please contact Alex Hayes - alexander.hayes@gmail.com

IAHA SUB REGISTRATION

At this time we are no longer registering full time skaters. SUBS can register at the link above. DO NOT Register as a SUB unless a team captain has had you approved and asked you to register.
