AMHA Return to Play Protocol for Coaches, Players & Parents
Submitted By Mark Holmes on Sunday, September 20, 2020
After much debate, problem solving, consultation and planning, the AMHA is pleased to announce that we are ready to commence a modified hockey season. The first skates will commence Sunday September 27, 2020




At this time, the EECC is operating the Kinsmen rink only. As such, the AMHA was only able to secure 22 hours of ice. The AMHA is able to offer most teams three skates per 2 week cycle. For most divisions, the exception being U9, each team will have one consistent ice time, while the second ice time is alternated every other week with another division i.e. U13 and U15 alternate Saturday evenings. If/when the eastlink rink opens up, we will be able to adjust the schedule to give every team two ice times per week. For now, the U5 and U7 divisions are limited to one ice time per week. We appreciate that many of the ice times are not ideal, but recognize this is the best we can do for now.

Please note that if we need to adjust the cost of registration for the second half of the season, we will make that adjustment. We acknowledge that when we arrived at a fee structure for the first half of the season, it was based on the premise, that we would be able to offer two ice times per week for each team. 

In most cases, practices will be shared between two teams in the same division, and you will see this reflected in the schedule commencing September 27, 2020. All divisions are considered a "bubble" and there will be no movement of players between these divisions/"bubbles."

IMPORTANT

There are strict protocols that need to be followed. I have attached the Return to Play Protocol for all to review. All families need to review the file and follow the directions provided. 

If we do not follow the protocol, we will be in jeopardy of losing our ice time because of a failure to abide by the rules set out by Southwest Public Health, The Municipality, Hockey Canada, the OHF, and the OMHA.

What to bring to the first skate?

1. 3 signed copies of the participants facility waiver
(1 goes in the participants bag in a ziploc in case you are asked to see the waiver, 2 are provided to the AMHA rep at the first skate - 1 will be kept on file by AMHA, the other provided to the complex)

2. Two OHF Health Screening Questionnaires
- the complex will have some, but by bringing two, one can be provided to AMHA and one can be provided to the complex, and it will save time at the door.

The complex will likely expect people to sign in on top of the covid health screen, so having your document in hand completed will save time.

What to bring on subsequent skates?

1. Two OHF Health Screening Questionnaires -
one for the complex and one for your team trainer.

We are hopeful that we will have an app for all teams ready sooner than later where you can sign your child in prior to the skate, indicating your child has answered "no" to all items on the questionnaire.

All COVID 19 forms can be found on the website, under the tab COVID 19 information. There is more information there regarding the safety guidelines of the EECC as well.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding. As you are aware, information is changing all the time, and we are hopeful that we will be able to inform our members quickly should any protocols change.

Thank you all on behalf of the AMHA board.
