Level Orange & OAAA Hockey
Submitted By OAAA Admin on Monday, November 16, 2020
Effective Monday November 16th, Durham Region has entered the Orange level in relation to the Province's COVD response.

The OAAA and the Orono Arena are following the guidelines as laid out by the Provincial government and the Durham Region Health Department.



At this time, not much has changed for us.  Please note the following rules which will strictly be enforced:

One parent per player will be allowed in the arena.  This rule will be strictly enforced regardless of the total number of people in the arena at that time.  We ask that you do not give the arena staff a hard time about this rule - it is not their rule and they cannot bend it for you.

Players and parents enter the arena together at approximately 10 minutes prior to the start of their ice time.  This may be delayed if the programs are running late.  Once the doors are closed, latecomers will not be allowed into the arena.  Please make sure you are on time or early.  

Players must not spit either on or off the ice.

There continues to be no use of washrooms for parents.  Parents must enter and go directly through the lobby to the cold area.  Parents must not re-enter the lobby area at any time.  Parents exit through the east doors inside the cold area.  

For games, the home team will now have access to two dressing rooms with a maximum of five kids in each room.  The visiting team will continue to use the chairs in the cold area.  Players must still come mostly dressed and vacate the arena immediately after their ice time ends so that proper sanitizing can be done and the next group can start their ice time on schedule.

A member of the OAAA board will be at the arena for all home games to assist in ensuring all protocols are followed.  If you have any questions please ask the OAAA board member on-site.  

Please remember that these rules are in place for the safety of our players, coaches, parents and arena staff but also so we can continue to provide a hockey program for the kids.
