Arena Protocol for OAAA Hockey
Submitted By Jeff Caplan on Wed 09 30, 20
With OAAA hockey beginning in the next few days, this article will lay out the arena protocols for players, coaches and parents who attend the Orono Arena for OAAA hockey.

1.  Players should arrive in full equipment with the only exception being helmet, gloves and skates for those without proper skate guards.  Dressing rooms are not in use yet.

2.  Teams will meet at the arena main doors 15 minutes before the start of their scheduled ice time.  The arena doors will be locked at all times.



3.  One team will line up along the east wall of the arena while the second team will line up along the south wall (located in the parking lot near the handicap access ramp)

4.  Every person entering the arena (parent, player, coach) will need to fill out the online form for contact tracing.  This form is located at www.oaaa.ca under the Orono Arena tab.  This form can be directly accessed on your smartphone via QR code.  Look for the QR code on the arena doors and around the arena entrance.

5.  Masks must be worn at all times when inside the facility.  If you are medically exempt from wearing a mask, we ask that you reach out to us prior to attending the facility.  Please contact us at [email protected] if you are mask exempt prior to attending.  

6.  Facility staff will let the players, coaches and 1 parent per player into the arena.  Everyone must enter together and anyone arriving late will not be admitted for that ice session.  Players and coaches must proceed directly through the lobby area to the cold area at the west end of the arena where there are chairs for the kids to remove their skate guards or put their skates on.  PLEASE NOTE: only coaches and players are allowed in the west cold area - if your child needs help with tying the skates please have them tied before you enter the arena or ensure in advance that a coach will help your child tie their skates.  

7.  The one parent per child spectator must proceed directly through the lobby and into the grandstand area in the east side cold area of the arena.  Parents/spectators must keep their mask on and must physically distance themselves from other parents/spectators.

8.  At the end of the session, the players will exit on the west side and have an opportunity to use the chairs to put their skate guards back on or to take their skates and helmet off.  The players and coaches will then exit the building through the dressing room door on the north side of the arena by the dumpsters.

9.  Parents/spectators must exit the area through the double doors on the east side of the cold area where they are watching the ice from.  Parents/spectators can then walk outside around the corner to the parking lot to meet the players coming out the arena back door.

Your OAAA executive realize how different the protocols are this season and we hope you understand that the health and safety of the players, coaches, spectators and arena staff are paramount which is why we are operating in this manner.  

A member of the OAAA executive will be at the arena in order to facilitate the smooth execution of these new protocols as well as to answer any questions from parents prior to entering the arena for the first time.  

Thank you and see you at the arena soon!
