Update on Return to Play Sept 14th, 2020
Submitted By Sarah Geer on Monday, September 14, 2020
Thank you for everyone's patience.  We know association members are anxious to hear about how hockey will run as well as schedules.  Please know many of the board members have been working around the clock to make things happen.  Here are a few important points........

*Our Return to Play document has yet to be approved by the Health Unit.

*Registration Payments are required for those who have Pre-Registered Due Friday, Sept 18th. If payment is not received your place may go to someone on the waitlist.
 
*Payment includes jersey/socks and other equipment which need to be purchased due to COVID. These will be kept by players.

*Schedule posted is FIRST DRAFT ONLY and does not have team's attached to them. Multiple times on the schedule means you could be on any of those nights.  We are working very hard and as quickly as we can to make teams with bench staff to ensure we can get kids on the ice.

*CUBS/IP will see ONE ice time per week

*TYKE & UP will see TWO ice times per week (1 skills 1 game when we are able to)

  • The team manager will meet all players at the facility entrance

  • Health Screening and Contact Management documentation will be verified complete prior to allowing entrance to the facility.

  • The Town of Bracebridge has issued a Daily Contact Tracing Log (Appendix A) which shall be completed for all users of the Bracebridge Memorial Arena.  This log shall be completed by the team manager along with all other required health screening and contact tracing forms required.

  • SMMHA has developed an online 'Google form' which shall be required to be completed by all players prior to entering any facility.  See SMMHA Covid-19 Health Screening Questionnaire

  • All players shall arrive at the facility dressed in as much equipment as possible.

  • Dressing room are closed in Gravenhurst with the exception of one room available for goaltenders to dress.

  • Dressing rooms are open in Bracebridge and shall be assigned to a maximum of 6 players during each team event (bench staff shall direct players to assigned rooms) for the purpose of tying skates only.

  • Players may enter the facility 15 minutes prior to their ice time.

  • No spectators shall be allowed access to the facility.

  • For cubs and IP pre-assigned parents shall be allowed in the facility to tie skates.

  • Doors will be locked to prevent access at scheduled ice time.

  • A maximum of 30 participants shall be allowed on the ice, including players and bench staff.

  • Masks or face coverings shall be worn by all participants before entering the facility and will only be removed by participants before going on the ice.

  • Once off the ice all participants shall don their mask or face covering.

All participants shall exit the facility no later than 15 minutes after leaving the ice.

*Things will change as we move through the next few weeks and months and we need to work with the Health Unit closely to ensure we are following protocol and directives they provide us.

*We understand the new protocols may not be ideal for every family this season and request that should you decide to opt out of playing this season immediately notify the REGISTRAR so we can offer a placement to a player on our waiting list.

Please be checking the website daily for updates as they come.
