Reminder - Arena Protocols
Submitted By OAAA Admin on Tuesday, February 16, 2021
As we re-start our hockey programs tonight, it is important that we follow the arena protocols put in place to ensure our safe return to hockey programming. 

Please remember that these protocols are in place for the health and safety of our arena staff, players, parents and spectators. The protocols are the same as they were prior to the shutdown. 



1.  The dressing rooms are closed.  Kids must come to the arena mostly dressed.  Ideally, skates with skate guards should be put on before coming inside the arena but there are chairs for the kids to use to put their skates on inside.

2.  Everyone should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled ice time.  The arena staff will let everyone in together and unfortunately once the doors are closed, late arrivals will not be allowed in.  Please remember to do the online Covid screening prior to entering the arena.  Scan the QR code on the door to go directly to the online form.  

3.  Only players and coaches can go to the west side of the arena.  Parents/spectators must go directly into the viewing area and cannot re-enter the lobby.  There is no loitering in the lobby area at all.  Parents/spectators leave the arena through the double doors in the cold area and can walk around to the parking lot to meet the players coming out the arena back door.  

4.  The 1 parent/spectator per player under 18 rule is still in effect and will be enforced.  Please do not argue with the arena staff - this is not their rule nor do they have the authority to change it. 

5.  Players and coaches must leave the ice immediately when the buzzer sounds.  Coaches please have your pucks and cones picked up a minute or two before you are scheduled to leave the ice.  Players and coaches must leave the arena quickly as well so the next group can get on the ice on time.  

These rules are in place so that we can safely offer our kids the hockey programming they want and need.  We hope in the next couple of weeks that we will be moved into the orange level and be able to loosen some of the rules and even play games again.
