Return to Hockey and COVID-19 Protocol
Submitted By Shannon Conliffe on Sunday, September 5, 2021
Hello Lancer families!
We are so excited to get everyone safely back to hockey!  As with last year, we have COVID-19 protocols in place to keep our participants healthy and on the ice. 

**Please review the updated Lambeth Return to Hockey plan with all participants prior to your first session and familiarize yourself with the expectations for the season**

Lambeth Minor Hockey Return to Hockey Plan 2021-2022

Below are some reminders of the City of London facility expectations:

Health Screening and Illness

All players and on-ice participants must complete the health screening prior to EACH session.  For the pre-season skates (development, try-outs and clinics) the City of London Health Assessment form will be used.  Please bring a completed form with you to the arena and present to the COVID screener upon arrival.

Click on the link below to access the form:

City of London Health Assessment Form (Fillable)

Parents who are entering the arena to tie skates or stay as a spectator must complete the City of London Health Assessment form and present it to the City greeter.  Copies of the form are available at the arena but you are strongly encouraged to download and complete in advance to avoid congestion at the entrance.

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

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

IMPORTANT!  NO player will be penalized for missing try-out or evaluation skates due to illness.  If your player has symptoms, tests positive, or is required to isolate and is unable to attend, please reach out to your convenor.  Accommodations will be made.

Arena Protocol

Players must come dressed in full hockey equipment, with the exception of skates.  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 may 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 10 participants allowed per dressing room.

Masks are required at all times within the arena and in the dressing room. Prior to going on the ice, participants may remove their mask. Coaches who are actively participating on the ice can remove their mask but coaches on the bench must wear a mask.

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.  Participants will enter Lambeth Arena through the main entrance and exit through the back of the building.

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.

Two spectators per player are allowed to enter the arena.  No additional parents, guardians, grandparents or other siblings are allowed to enter at this time.

Thank you for your cooperation in reviewing and adhering to these protocols. As we navigate our return to hockey, there will be frequent changes and updates so please make sure to check your email and the website frequently!

*We are in the process of updating our Return to Hockey section of our website.  Thanks for your patience and check back for updates!*
