Hockey Returns Feb. 16th!
Submitted By Tina Balfour on Saturday, February 13, 2021
We are excited to welcome our players back to the ice, starting Tuesday Feb 16th!

With Southwestern PHU being placed in the "Red-control" zone set of health and safety restrictions, hockey won't look quite the same as it did before the lockdown went into effect.

More details...

In particular:

  • only one team of 10 players is allowed on the ice at one time; no shared ice time for practices
  • only training instruction is allowed, with no games and no scrimmages; physical distancing must be maintained during practice

We realize that some families may not feel comfortable having their child return to hockey at this point - in such cases, we ask that you contact your child's coach to let them know.

We are in the process of working out arrangements for our U7 Initiation Program teams - an update will be provided on Wednesday, and their first ice time will be Sat. Feb. 20th.

Health and safety Arena_Protocols remain in place, including:

  • a mask, fully covering nose and mouth, must be worn by all individuals when inside the facility; this includes players while in the changeroom, and their mask can only be removed while on the ice (and moving between the ice surface and changeroom)
  • one parent/guardian per player under the age of 18 is allowed
  • anyone entering the facility must self-assess before leaving home, and then check-in at the front door
Let's all do our part, to keep the case numbers on a downward trend - and hopefully, our PHU can move back into at least the "Orange-Restrict" classification soon.

Take care everyone, stay safe and we'll see you at the rink!
