As we previously communicated, Governor Pritzker announced on Tuesday that all of Illinois will be subject to Tier 3 mitigation beginning, Friday, November 20. Part of the Tier 3 mitigation plan requires the suspension of "all indoor group sporting and recreational activities including youth and adult recreational sports."
In light of these guidelines, the Darien Sportsplex has advised us that we are not able to use our ice slots until further notice. Also, because of the guidelines, MFC Performance is not able to conduct our off-ice training.
As a result, effective Friday, November 20, all DuPage Stars on-ice and off-ice activities are suspended until further notice.
We do not know how long the mitigation period will last. We will keep you updated as we receive additional information.
Please stay healthy and safe.
