Reopening Arena Protocols - Step 3
The rules under Step 3 for City of London arenas, including Western Fair, if we are still in Step 3 come Tuesday, September 7, are as follows.
Number on the ice and on the bench will be limited to 25 including coaches. This is based on the fact that players are required to keep a distance of 2 meters in each dressing room. Dressing room limits are set at approximately 9-10 depending on the location.
Chairs outside the dressing rooms will be provided if needed. If and when we are permitted to reduce or eliminate that distancing in dressing room the limits on the ice will increase.
Contact and regular competition is permitted.
Masks are required at all times within the arena and in the dressing room. Participants and parents.
Associations will be responsible for screening participants, coaches and officials as they did last year.
An association rep will be responsible for signing in all the participants and coaches per session holding that screening information for 30 days if needed by the MLHU.
2 parent/guardians will be permitted to enter to spectate. Masks are to be worn at all times.
Viewing areas will be opened to allow more to watch while maintaining appropriate distancing.
Lobbies and dressing corridors will remain off limits to spectators.
All parents/guardians who enter will need to complete the appropriate screening document.
Western Fair has an app in place while the City of London arenas will require the attached screening document to be completed.
Entry into the arenas will be permitted 15 minutes prior to the start of your ice time and you are to leave the arena 15 minutes after.
Hour and a half practices are permitted as long as it does not create ice flooding conflicts and you are able to stagger entry and exit to avoid congestion at the entrance and exit.
Specific entrance and exits have been designated for each arena.
Showers are not available.
Except for player water bottles, please do not bring any outside food or beverages.
As always if you have any questions please feel free to reach out.
