Red Zone Designation Impacts Hockey Programming
Submitted By AMHA Board of Directors on Saturday, November 21, 2020
As you are aware, Waterloo Region will be entering Level Red in response to rising cases of Covid-19 in the Region.  With the change from Orange to Red level, new restrictions come into effect.  These restrictions impact the delivery of AMHA’s hockey program. Starting Monday, a maximum of 10 individuals (players and coaches included) are allowed on the ice at any one time.   

As a result of these new restrictions, we have to adjust the group that each player is in to make sure there are no more than 9 players per group plus a coach.  This poses a number of challenges, but AMHA is working to make the best of the situation and to continue to provide a quality hockey experience for players. The reorganization means that there are an increased number of groups of players needing ice time with limited ice times available. In order to adhere to Public Health Guidelines and to allow all kids to continue to play hockey, each group will be on the ice one time per week until the Christmas break.  While not ideal, it is the best that AMHA can do given the latest government restrictions that have been put in place. 

 

Your coach will contact you as soon as possible to let you know which group your child is in for the remainder of the hockey season (end of December).  Midget aged players will be maintained in their current groups.

 

New Restrictions:

1.       Dressing rooms are no longer available for use except as a washroom.  Players MUST enter the arena fully dressed.  It is recommended that younger players who cannot tie their own skates, have them tied at home and wear skate guards into the arena.

2.      A maximum of 9 parents may watch from the stands.  (A certified trainer needs to be in the stands as part of this group).

 

Please remember that all Covid-19 screening procedures remain.  We may need additional parent help to ensure all forms are filled out and protocols are being followed.

 

 

PLEASE NOTE--Registration for Hockey Programming for January to March will open in a few days and will close in mid December so that programming can be planned for the new year.  There will be no late registrations permitted and registration numbers may be limited to fit within ice time constraints.

 

More information will be provided as it becomes available.
