Return to Play Protocol - IP U7 Programming
Submitted By Diana Wilson on Friday, October 23, 2020
Return to Play Protocol - Let's do our best to keep everyone safe! 

Please adhere to the following:   

  • Digital Health Checks MUST be completed for the players, guardian spectators, coaches, and COVID Watchers prior to entering the arena.  If Health Checks are not completed, there will be no entry permitted.  Please complete your Sportsheadz Account registration so that this process can easily be monitor by coaches, parents and STMHA Volunteers using the Digital Health Check Screening.  Please note: Web browser entry is the preferred method for accessing the Digital Health Check, as the app is still being worked on and may not allow for health checks to be completed by all parties. We have added a direct link from the STMHA homepage or you can access it using this link:
  • Due to dressing room restrictions, we ask that all players show up with their skates on (skate guards would be ideal) or possibly carry your child into the facility.  Face coverages are to be worn by all players until they head onto the ice.  

  • No hockey bags, please consider small duffle bags for carrying of helmets, gloves and water bottles (must be labelled).  
  • Front doors will be open 15 minutes prior to your skate and will be open for a few minutes to allow traffic to enter.  Please show up on time as there is no guarantee you will get in if you show up late, as the doors will be locked. 
  • If you are a coach and cannot attend then please let another coach know and see if you can find a replacement.  Only listed coaches can be on the ice during practice. 
  • Each Team must have an appointed COVID Watcher (parent volunteer).  This person will count as the ONE parent/guardian and will monitor players off ice and they must wear a face mask at all times.   Should a player need to leave the ice for any reason, the COVID Watcher will alert their parents in the stands to come and get their child form the designated area.  Please get in touch with your coach directly to be added.
  • Only ONE (1) parent per child is allowed to enter the facility as the Spector/On-Ice Volunteers/Coaches. This means, if you are coaching/on-ice volunteer, then you are that designated parent. Absolutely no other parents/guardians/grandparents are to enter the facility.  We are at the maximum capacity at this age group and if people are entering when they shouldn’t be, this could cause kids who arrive after them to NOT be allowed in. 
  • Due to dressing room restrictions there will only be allowed 9 players (no parents) in the dressing room at any given time.  We will be assigned two dressing rooms and there is designated space outside of room 1 on the bench for 5 kids when in rooms 1 and 2.  When we are in rooms 3 and 4 there are benches outside of room 4 to accommodate 5 kids.  There will be no use of the half ice boards or mini nets this season.   
  • Face coverings must be worn by spectators at all times - no exceptions. 
  • The City has marked seating in the stands to identify where spectators are to sit, we ask that you follow the directions and adhere to social distancing policies.  Spectators MUST sit in the marked seating areas and are not permitted to be on players benches or standing around the glass.   
  • When your ice session is finished, we ask that you exit through the North door (arrows will direct you), do not exit back through the front arena doors.
