Player and Coach Entry Procedures at the NDCC
Submitted By B Sayles on Sunday, September 20, 2020
All AMHA players and coaches must follow the specific entry procedures outlined below when entering the NDCC as required by the Township of North Dumfries.

         Players are to arrive no sooner than 15 minutes before their scheduled ice time.  Please do not be later than 15 minutes before the ice time though.  Given that we don’t have much ice time, we don’t want to waste any waiting for the kids to get ready. 

         Players are to be dressed prior to arriving at the arena  - We are not certain on this, but expect that it will be fine for kids to get dressed in the parking lot, if you like, at least while the weather permits.  If you are going to have your child get dressed in the parking lot, please park away from the high traffic areas around the front door. 

         Players are to enter arena using the front sliding doors and head directly down the ramp to the dressing room area. Wearing a mask is mandatory while in the facility, and the dressing rooms. This applies to all players and staff.  Once your child has their helmet on, masks can be removed.

         Players are to be assigned a number (1 or 2)   

         Players are to enter the dressing rooms in shifts. This is to be monitored by the coaches to ensure everyone is following protocol.   

         Players are to enter the dressing rooms and use stalls that correspond to their assigned number.  Number 1’s will enter the room first and put their skates, gloves and helmets on followed by 2’s.

         Player’s assigned 1 will use stalls numbered 1. Players assigned 2 will use stalls numbered 2.

         Once dressed, they are to leave the dressing room immediately and socially distance while waiting for their ice time.   

         Once the room is vacated by the number 1’s, the players assigned number 2 will then enter and get ready.   

         This process is to be done in reverse once their scheduled ice time is finished. 

         Once gloves and helmets are removed, masks must be immediately put back on. 

         Players can leave their bags in their assigned stalls.

         There is a maximum of 50 persons (parents) allowed in the facility (not including those on ice).

         Finally - there is a zero-tolerance policy for those who do not follow the protocols. Those who choose to not follow the rules can expect to lose the ice time for the offending team for the remainder of the season.
