New APH Gudelines - Nov. 29th
*NEW* Covid Safety Protocols effective Monday, Nov. 29th

Due to the new APH protocols coming into effect Monday, November 29th, 2021, the following safety protocols MUST be followed to ensure we can stay on the ice.  We have been in direct contact with APH to ensure we can keep the players on the ice and safe.   We recognize that this is not ideal, and some changes have had to be made to keep the players on the ice, however, we felt it was important for the child's health to do everything we could to allow them to play.  

1). There will be NO games or exhibition games held or allowed during your assigned Pee Wee ice time for this period.    

2). All ice-times have been converted to single team practices, please check your schedules as changes were made.  Games will be added back into the schedules once we have approval to play games again.

3) Practices will be drills that allow for social distancing.  There is to be NO contact and coaches must ensure, to the best of their abilities, that players maintain a physical distance throughout the practices.

4). Teams are to use 2 dressing rooms and evenly distribute their players between the two rooms.  There can be no more than 10 in a dressing room at a time, including parents.   Use the 2 dressing rooms beside each other.   Please take notice of the amount of people in the rooms when you show up. 

5). Absolutely NO sharing of water bottles.  You must bring your own to your ice time.

6). We are asking for parents to try to limit the number of spectators coming to the practices.  We ask, if you can, to have only 1 parent attend each practice.   We understand that younger siblings may need to come but ask you to limit extra spectators that are not necessary.  While in the stands please social distance from other spectators that are not in your household. 

7). Masks coming into the building are mandatory.  Players MUST wear masks while in the dressing rooms at ALL times when their helmet is off!  The helmet should go on last and right before they go on the ice to ensure masks can be kept on. 

8). Please leave the arena once your ice time is done and do not congregate in the lobby.  

APH has made it very clear that organizations that do not adhere to the guidelines WILL BE FINED and all ice times will be cancelled.
