  • A maximum of 30 skaters/players will be allowed on the ice plus coaches
  • A maximum of 40 skaters/players will be permitted ONLY for U9 hockey during half-ice play or CanSkate programming to allow parents on the ice. Due to lack of dressing space with 40 skaters, participants must come dressed to the arena.

  • The rental permit holder will be responsible for sharing these protocols with those who will be participating in the ice rental including members of visiting teams and game officials
  • The rental permit holder (or his/her designate) is responsible to ensure that all participants have screened before entry to the building and all other participants who will be present on and around the ice pad, e.g. referees, timekeepers. No one will be permitted to enter the facility until the rental permit holder (or designate) is on-site and ready to ensure that all participants have screened
  • The rental permit holder (or his/her designate) will monitor the spectator seating area to ensure that all COVID-19 protocols are followed (such as: wearing face masks/coverings; social distancing)
  • Foam dividers/pylons will be allowed for half-ice pad play. It is the responsibility of the permit holder to sanitize the equipment and to place/clear dividers within the approved rental time.
