PLEASE READ


Blenheim Arena – COVID Procedure’s

Here is what to expect when entering the arena:

Masks must be worn at all times in all areas of the arena. The only exception is for skaters that are on the ice.

Skaters & parents must arrive 20-30 mins before ice time to hand in COVID Screening & Waiver Form.

The event organizer is responsible for taking the temperature of all skaters and parents. This will be done in the arena just after the first automatic doors.(We provide Infrared Forehead Thermometer). If a skater/parent register’s a high temp 100.4 F or 38 C or higher, have them sit in a chair across from the table for 10 mins and then re-take their temp. If temp still high they are not permitted in the building.

Skaters & parents are permitted in the arena 10 mins before your ice time, skaters will go to their dressing rooms to finish getting ready.

Hockey players are expected to enter the arena with at least their shin pads and hockey pants on and a full water bottle if needed.

(Reminder: if a skater takes their mask off and puts their helmet on before going on the ice they must remain seated in their 6’ designated spot)

One parent ONLY is permitted, per family, in the building to accompany participants. Parents will be permitted in the arena at the same time as their child and will not be allowed if they do not accompany upon entrance. To ensure social distancing, there are designated spots spaced 6’ apart for parents to sit in the stands. Parents should dress for a cold environment as the heat will not be turned on.

Parents will be permitted in the lobby area to tie skates in a designated area and then must continue to the stands once previous parent group has left. (Note - parents are not permitted down the dressing room side)
Parents leave out the designated exit doors, ASAP, once the session is completed. If anyone leaves their spot anytime during the practice/game and goes outside, they will not be permitted back in.

(If staff find there are more parents in the stands then skaters on the ice, the entire parent group will be asked to leave the arena)

**Washrooms in the lobby will be available for 10 minutes upon entering the arena, once in the stands the lobby and washrooms will not be available**

Once the ice is cleaned, skaters can exit the dressing room and go on the ice when your coach says it is ok. Otherwise remain in the dressing room. (Coaches, do not let your group exit the dressing room until the group that was on the ice is off and all skaters in their dressing room)
When your ice time is done and you are in the dressing room, take helmet off put mask on, take skate’s off and exit out the arena back doors.
(Coaches, please hold your group in the dressing room until the Zamboni is done and the next group is on the ice)
