The attached chart can be referenced for clarity and we ask you share this, as well as general safety reminders, with your volunteers and families to ensure we are able to keep players on the ice and finish the season.
There have been many questions and speculation of what additional measures may be implemented and the impact they may have on youth sport. At this time, there have not been additional restrictions that directly impact youth sport, and all programming is able to continue as planned. We are committed to provide updates in a timely manner as new information comes in.
As the second half of our season is a busy time for tournaments, I did want to take this opportunity to share some reminders and to suggest a few simple strategies and processes that can help keep our players, coaches and spectators safe and give you the best chance to operate a successful tournament.
Players, continue wearing masks at all times when not engaged in physical activity (including dressing rooms)
Coaches, continue wearing masks at all times while at the arena (including dressing rooms and on the bench)
Utilize multiple dressing rooms when available to allow for physical distancing
Set clear entry and exit expectations for teams during tournaments to help limit congregation in facilities
Reduce the amount of time your players, coaches and spectators spend in the arena before and after games (don’t linger and congregate in groups)
Work with facility personnel to ensure proper communication of and adherence to capacity limits (to be extra cautious, consider establishing a lower capacity limit for the tournament)
