Happy September,

A little bit of info for the start of the season.

There are no Recreation sessions this weekend. The regular season practice schedule is attached, this starts Monday Sept 27th.

All Recreation teams practice together so for instance, if you are U11 you will come Tuesday the 28th and Thursday the 30th at 4:45. The Coaches will use the first couple of weeks of practices to evaluate the teams and make sure they are balanced before naming who’s on what team but they will always practice together.

U7 will have ice Sunday Sept 26th 7:15-8:15 and 8:45-9:45 to assess and let each family know which practice sessions they are to attend. Tyler Mills and Allan Wilkes will be handling U7 so if you have any questions please contact them at tymills93@gmail.com or allan@wilkesmechanical.ca

There will be practices on Thursday,Sept 30th.

The Arena COVID procedures are on the website,just scroll down on the main page.

The payment system still isn’t working so I will be using the Concession’s payment system to process the payments, I will start those Sept 23rd.

U7 and U9 jerseys haven’t arrived yet so please make sure your child has a practice jersey with them for the first week or two.

Reminder , only one adult spectator per player and there are no siblings allowed in the building. We will need Facility Ambassadors, if you can help that first week please contact myself or our Volunteer Coordinator at jennifersamms@hotmail.ca to sign up for a session….we need a village, thanks !!!!!

Please understand that this could be subject to change at anytime but the District is working very diligently to ensure we are able to deliver a positive experience for our youth while adhering to the Interior Health guidelines. It is very important to understand that the Interior Health guidelines supersede the PHO and we must make sure we are in line with the stricter of them. We also must note that we are users of the facility, and must abide by the guidelines they require.

As of Sept 15th, we will NOT be requiring proof of vaccine to enter the building but we will be following Interior Health’s contact tracing procedures. All persons will be required to wear a mask, players must wear masks until they put on their helmets.

We will still be at one spectator per player, we have a very strict maximum of 50 persons allowed outside the field of play. All persons involved in the event (Coaches, players, refs, timekeepers) will be marked on the sheet already and do not have to provide info. All spectators will be required to provide their name and phone number to the Facility Ambassadors. We will need Facility Ambassadors for each event, you will hear more from our volunteer Co-ordinator Jennifer Samms regarding that role.

For U11 and up, Coaches, players, and team staff will be allowed in the building 30 minutes prior to their icetime. They are to proceed directly to their dressing room, there will be no persons allowed in the halls at anytime. Coaches and team staff will need to be on hand to tie skates for those who need help while ensuring they are following the “two-deep” rule in the dressing room . (Meaning there must be at least two adults in the dressing room, no single adult is to enter or be in a dressing room alone) One person will be designated to fill water bottles. Spectators will be allowed into the building 5 minutes prior to the event start time and must proceed directly to the stands. At the end of the event, spectators are to leave the building immediately, players will have 15 minutes to remove their skates and be out the doors to facilitate smooth entry for the next group.

For U7 and U9, players and their accompanying can enter the building 30 minutes before start time. Parents are allowed to accompany their player into the dressing room to help get them ready and then must go directly to the stands. At the end of the event, please proceed directly to the dressing room and leave the building as quickly as possible.

Hopefully this is clear for everyone, if you have any questions let me know.

Please note there are changes to the Jr Division practice times. It is a bit different for the Jr Division this year as we have had so many new registrants, which is great but we have had to make some adjustments in order to give as many kids as possible an opportunity to play.
Practices start Monday Sept 27th, I will send out COVID procedures closer to that date. We will be having U7 evaluation skates the weekend of Sept 25 and 26th to ensure the teams are as even as possible. Details on that will be sent out in the next week or so.
