COVID SCREENING REMINDER
Prior to Every Ice Time:
Everyone is required to complete the On Line Covid Screening Form and make certain your Team's Covid Tracker records your Passed Screening before entry (and preferably before arrival).
COVID SCREENING FOR ALL PHA ICE TIMES
The online screening has been updated and when you complete it you or your Team Tracker (if directed) will get an automated email that you will show in advance or at the door to the Coach or Volunteer/Team Tracker completing the tracking sheet. Please do this within 12 hours before, so any ice times tomorrow will need the automated email to enter the arena for the players. Parents or Guardians entering the Arena will use the test on the same on line form, they do not need to do a second. Parents or Guardians can also do the test orally and be added to Tracking Form prior to entering the Arena.
COVID PROCEDURES FOR ALL PHA ICE TIMES
All PHA Players and parents please read and understand the following:
All coaches, trainers, players and one parent or guardian entering the building must have a face covering on at all time. (Only exception is members on the ice and only for the on-ice portions)
All players will bring prefilled water bottles should they desire water during their game or practice.
Screening Questionnaire within 12 hours before every ice for each participant and accompanying parent or guardian.
Please be honest and truthful; our program depends on this.
If you are sick or show symptoms please do not participate in PHA Activities. Please follow Return to Play Protocols.
Returning to Hockey after Illness:
If your son / daughter has missed hockey due to being sick, the following form must be filled out, it will be sent automatically to the [email protected] email. You will receive a copy, please forward this to your teams coach and trainer. They are not able to take part in any PHA activities until this is completed and the Health team clears them for a return to play.
All players will show up as dressed as possible and enter the arena 10 min before ice time.
Dressing rooms will be assigned not by team, but by ice time. Masks, bags and other items will be left in the room and players will then go directly on the ice. Undressing in the room after is only acceptable if completed and out of the facility within the 10min time limit, otherwise players will finish in the parking lot.
Teams will have 50 minutes on the ice, at which Zamboni staff will buzz you off, players will take skates off and be escorted out. Players will not be able to take their time after, as next team does not enter till last player is out from the ice before.
Only 1 parent or guardian (no siblings) will be allowed in the arenas and they will stand in predetermined areas respecting physical distancing. No ReEntry after you have exited the building.
Showers will not be accessible for use in the arena dressing rooms.
