Dear Devilette Families,
As you may have already heard, the Middlesex-London region is moving to Red-Control as of Monday, December 14th. This will mean changes for how hockey operates in our organization.
We know that this will be a disappointment to the girls, but it is our hope that we will find a way forward to ensure the season continues to be as positive as possible for our players. As a board, we will be reviewing these restrictions to determine how they will affect our programs and will share this information as soon as possible. The new restrictions from the City of London are outlined below:
-Maximum of 10 participants and 2 coaches/instructors or trainers on an ice pad.
-Arena dressing rooms are now closed as per the regulations under the red level. This means that seats will be set-up in the lobby areas for participants to put on and take off skates. All participants will be required to come dressed except for skates. (With dressing rooms being closed there will be 30 minutes between each rental time so that once the group leaving the ice get undressed and departs, we can sanitize the area and the next group can arrive.) * See Scenario example below
-No Games or scrimmages are permitted – practice/instruction only
-One parent/guardian is allowed for participants under the age of 18 to watch from the designated spectator viewing area.
-While on the ice and in the arena the participants must maintain a physical distance of 2 meters from each other.
-Megaphones/microphones must be used for instruction – no shouting
-All groups are required to be pre-screened before entering the arena and provide contact information for contact tracing purposes. We already take care of this in our current protocols so nothing new is required.
-All other protocols such as health assessments remain in place.
