Lancers,

Please take a moment to review the City of London Facility Protocols.   For parents entering the arena to tie skates or to spectate, do note you must complete the City of London screening form.   To ease congestion and delays, it is recommended you arrive with this form completed.  A copy of this form and the City of London Protocols are available for download from the links below.

CITY OF LONDON FACILITY REQUIREMENTS

As of November 25, 2020

 

1. Masks: Masks are to be worn by coaches at ALL times while in the arena. This applies to practices, games and in the dressing rooms talking to their teams. Coaches are NOT permitted to lower their masks to give instructions during a practice and then pull them back up.

 

2. Parents/Guardians: Only one parent/guardian is permitted to enter the facility to act as a spectator. Parents./Guardian can bring siblings in with them to get their child ready for the ice but they all must leave the facility immediately after they are ready. Parent/Guardians are also required to bring with them the COVID health assessment each time they come in. We are noticing that more and more people are not showing up with it which creates congestion in the lobby areas. We will provide forms for them to fill out but they must do this outsideNO siblings are permitted to spectate. Parent/Guardians are to enter the arena at start of the ice time and go directly to the spectator area. They must leave immediately after the ice time as no congregating in the lobby areas is permitted. While in the spectator area they must maintain a 2 meter distance from all other spectators. No in or out privileges. Once the parent/guardian is in the arena they must stay until the end of the ice time if they wish to watch.

 

3. The maximum number of people permitted to be on the ice pad is 25 including coaches and officials.

a. For games of 3 on 3, 4 on 4 or 5 on 5 the total number of people permitted on the ice and benches is 25. That includes coaches and officials. Timekeepers are exempt from the number.

b. For practices the ice must be divided in half (length or width wise) with a 3 meter distance between each half. The maximum allowed on each half is 12 people including coaches. Stations of less than 12 are permitted as long as 3 meters separates each group. Players cannot cross from one side of the ice to the other during a drill. Once they are placed in their group they must remain in that group for the entire practice.

c. Full ice sessions with 12 participants and 3 coaches are permitted to take place and they do not need to divide the ice.

 

4. Benches have been clearly marked to identify the number of participants that can be on each bench at least 2 meters apart. Penalty boxes can be used if needed for an additional participant. Coaches during games do not count towards this total.

 

5. NO food or drink is permitted to be brought into the arena.

 

6. No body contact or battling drills permitted.

 

In an effort to ensure we remain compliant with the above requirements, arena staff will continue to monitor and enforce the above as needed. It should also be noted, that By-Law officers have been making random checks at various Arenas.

Thanks,

Christa Fisher
President
Lambeth Minor Hockey
