Submitted By Melissa Wolk on Tuesday, February 23, 2021
I’m sure you are as excited as we are to get back on the ice! While Halton being in the Red-Control zone allows for us to return to the ice in some capacity, it does come with some very important “strings attached” in the form of stricter protocols and much less tolerance for non-compliance

 
  • Access into the facility is through arena specific entry points
  • Participants must wait outside the facility and only enter 10 minutes before their scheduled ice time and must enter as a group (no scattering of participants)
  • Spectators are not permitted. A maximum of one guardian (same household) may remain on site (in a designated area) per player if needed and must maintain a minimum of 3 m from all others.
  •  There is a maximum of 10 participants on the ice.
  • 2 additional staff permitted at ice level – 1 of which must be a trainer.
  • On-Ice sessions must be skill-based practices, no gameplay or scrimmages.
  • No food or drinks allowed in the facility while in the Red Zone.
 
TEAM SPECIFIC PROTOCOLS
 
  • Each team must have a designated Health and Safety Liaison
  • The Health and Safety Liaison will be responsible to ensure that all participants including players, coaches and instructors have completed a health screening prior to every team practice and game.
  • The screening of each player will be the responsibility of their parent or guardian.
  • A participant tracking sheet must be submitted for EVERY ON ICE SESSION. This tracking sheet must include the name of all players as well as the guardian who will be attending with them. A phone number for each player participating must also be included on the tracking sheet.
  • A hard copy of the tracking sheet can be brought to the arena and submitted as per the arena specific protocols (preferred method) or emailed directly to the arena as per the facility specific protocols.
