Welcome to Session 2!
Submitted By Christa Karr on Thursday, November 19, 2020
First, we want to thank all of our participants for a successful Session 1.  This hockey season has come with many challenges and constantly changing expectations.  We thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we navigate these unprecedented times.  A huge thank you goes out to all of our coaches, bench staff and parent volunteers.  Leading a team is not an easy role in the best of times and this year our coaching staff is tasked with creating fun, engaging hockey sessions with more rules and regulations than ever before.  We could not do this without you, so THANK YOU!

As we prepare for Session 2, we ask that all participants review the following COVID-19 protocol and procedures.


Participant Education

All NEW families are required to watch the MHAL Return to Hockey Webinar, review the MHAL Return to Hockey Plan, and discuss with your player.

As COVID-19 protocols are constantly evolving, there have been updates since our Return to Play was developed.  Please review the following Addendum with your player.

MHAL Return to Hockey Addendum Nov 13, 2020

Once this has been completed, please confirm using the link below.

We recommend all current registrants review the MHAL Return to Hockey Plan and subsequent Addendum in preparation for Session 2.


Health Screening and Illness

All players and on-ice participants must complete the digital health screening prior to EACH session.  Please complete the screening prior to arrival at the arena, but no more than 2 hours in advance.  


To access the online screening:
1. Go to health.sportsheadz.com to create/access your account
2. Choose your team (if you have players on multiple teams, they will all appear under the parent login)
3. Complete your screening!

The App is now available for download as well!


Parents who are entering the arena to tie skates or stay as a spectator must complete the City of London Health Screening form and present to the City greeter.

Copies of the form are available at the arena or you can download and complete in advance.

If you answer "YES" to any of the health screening questions STAY HOME!  We need to protect our bubbles and keep each other healthy!


If the participant or anyone in your household tests positive for COVID-19, DO NOT COME TO HOCKEY!  Reach out to MLHU for further guidance and notify the COVID-19 Coordinator [email protected] 


If the participant or any one in your household is required to self-isolate, ALL members of the household must pause hockey activities until the isolation period is over.


Participants should familiarize themselves with the OHF 


REMINDER!  If any participant is absent from hockey due to illness or a positive COVID-19 test, they CANNOT return to hockey until clearance is received from the COVID-19 Coordinator.


Arena Protocol

Players must come dressed in as much equipment as possible.  Small bags are permitted.  Goalies may bring their hockey bag into the arena.


Participants must arrive ready to enter the arena 15 minutes prior to their scheduled ice time.  Participants arriving after their ice time begins will not be permitted to enter.  Participants must exit the arena promptly after their ice time is over


Physical distancing of 2 metres must be adhered to at all times.  This includes common areas, dressing rooms, and on the bench.  There is a maximum of 9 participants allowed per dressing room.


Masks must be worn at all times.   Players are permitted to remove their masks when they leave the dressing room to enter the ice surface.  Players must put their mask on immediately after entering the dressing room and removing their helmet.
Coaches must wear masks at all times, even on the bench and ice surface.  Reminder, it is not permitted to lower your mask at any time while on the ice or bench.


Hand sanitizer must be used upon entry to the arena.  It is recommended that participants also carry hand sanitizer with them.


Follow directional arrows and posted signage for flow of traffic.  


Players must bring a labelled water bottle.  No sharing of water bottles, food or drink is permitted.


NO outside food or drink is permitted into the arena including coffee, tea, etc.


Only one parent or guardian per player is allowed to enter the arena.  No additional parents, guardians, grandparents or other siblings are allowed to enter at this time.


Game Play

Given the recent MLHU move to Yellow/Protect Level of the Province’s COVID-19 Response Framework, there will be NO games scheduled with outside centres while in this level.  While this is disappointing news for us all, the health and safety of our participants is our top priority.


Modified 3 on 3 or 4 on 4 game play will continue to be permitted through intra-squad games and coach-led scrimmages.


The MHAL Executive thanks you for your continued commitment to keeping our hockey family safe and healthy!
