U9 and U7 Division Parents
Submitted By Ed Vetere

We have been in discussion with the Town and with their approval we will be allowing one guardian to enter the rink with players U9 and below commencing after the Thanksgiving long weekend. Therefore, on October 13th one guardian will be allowed to accompany their child into the rink. The guardian will NOT be allowed into the New Roads(West) dressing area to help players with their helmet and skates as there is not enough room to maintain proper social distancing. If your practice/game is on the New Roads ice pad, then you must tie players skates before entering the rink and upon entering players will proceed to the dressing area and guardians will proceed directly to the viewing area in stands.
While in the viewing area guardians will wear a mask at all times and sit in designated spectator areas and continue to maintain proper social distancing. Once practice/game is over guardians will exit the stands and the building immediately and wait for their players outside the New Roads exit doors.
If your practice/game is on the Atlas(East) Pad, guardians will enter with their child and as there is more room, will be allowed to help tie their skate and help with other gear, while wearing a mask at all times. Once the player is dressed, the guardian must proceed immediately to the viewing area again maintaining proper social distancing and continuing to wear their masks.
Once game/practice is over, guardians will move back to the players seating area to help players remove skates and put on shoes. Once the player has removed their helmet (puts mask on) and skates, then guardian and player will exit the building via the East exit doors.
At this time only the U9 and under, age groups will be allowed a guardian. Guardians attending practice/games will be required to complete a COVID-19 Health Screening Form before being allowed to enter the arena.
We continue to work with the town and our regional health units to ensure everyone's safety. If you have any questions please direct them to Ed Vetere (VP EGMHA) at [email protected].
