Update on EECC/AMHA procedures to start the season
As you are all aware, we are still in the midst of this pandemic, and as a result there the EECC continues to have rules and regulations to follow. We are hoping this email blast will provide some clarity moving into the "pre-season prep" skates this week and the regular programming for U5 - U8 this weekend.


When you arrive at the EECC, you will have 15 min prior to your skate to get ready. We recommend participants arrive partly dressed to minimize time in the dressing rooms. There is no limit to person in the dressing rooms but patrons are expected to follow the same social distancing rules that have been in effect for some time. Masks are to be worn at all times in the EECC, except for our participants when they going onto the ice.

You will have 15 min post skate to exit the EECC at the designated exits for kinsmen, and eastlink rinks (same as last year on kinsmen, similarly on eastlink)

Players will need to sign in with a designated coach prior to entering the EECC. A designated coach will have the arena screen pre-filled out to allow the players to enter first in an orderly fashion, and then the parents. Parents will sign in at the table inside the EECC after the players have made their way in. Players can also hand in their mandatory AMHA screen to the same designated coach. Yes, two screens, yes redundancy, both organizations are required to keep track for contact tracing.

Please print the following screen for each ice time.

Once we have teams made, we will use the same Sportsheadz app that we used last year for screening purposes which will eliminate the paper forms.

Parents are permitted into the complex and can use the seating areas this year. Social distancing and mask wearing continue to be in place.

On the ice, players need not wear their masks. Water bottles are permitted but not to be shared.
There is a zero tolerance for spitting or squirting water.
Coaches will wear masks on the ice, when social distancing is not possible.

Players need to go to your designated skate. We cannot have people interchanging between skates for numbers purposes.

Its been a long time since we've been back on the ice. We hope this information will alleviate some stresses as we commence a new year. We can't wait to get the season rolling again.
