SHMHA Update - September 29
Submitted By Kim Kramer on Tuesday, September 29, 2020
Thank you to all of our members who have joined us for the first portion of our hockey season. We were successful in meeting all guidelines for the facility and public health while allowing our players to get back on the ice! We appreciate everyone’s continued diligence in following social distancing and mask guidelines and look forward to the same continuing throughout the season. It is critical that we all work together to make hockey possible.  

Team assignments for all players 

U9 (novice) and above have now been completed. Previous teams were left intact where possible, but many players will now have new teammates to meet and enjoy. OMHA (boys side) mandated a maximum of 9+1 for roster sizes which means there was movement between age groups for several players as our teams are traditionally much larger. We hope everyone will enjoy this next phase of hockey and that we can continue to work through returning to hockey together.

There is a tab on the home screen of on our website now entitled ‘Return to Play’ where we have posted links and information on the upcoming phases.

Ice schedules have been uploaded to the website. Player rosters should also be available soon if you would like to confirm your player’s team assignment.

Please note, the municipality is closing both the SHRC and STA for Thanksgiving weekend – October 9-12th, so there will be no ice times during those dates.

SOUTH HURON RECREATION CENTRE

GUIDELINES for the SHRC remain the same at this time-parents will be able to enter with their players (15 minutes prior to ice time) in order to help tie skates. They must then exit the building.

STEPHEN ARENA GUIDELINES

Players will be granted access to the arena 15 minutes before and after their ice  time to tie skates. Players are asked to arrive at the arena dressed and one parent per family will be permitted into the dressing room to assist with skates and helmets. Participants and parents will require a mask to enter the facility and masks will be required at all times (except when players are on the ice). Players can remove their mask once they have their helmet on, and then are asked to put their mask back on once their helmet is removed after practice.

While the municipality is not yet permitting spectators to watch practice, they are however permitting a guardian to remain in the arena for younger children on the ice. South Huron Minor Hockey is of the position that given the age of players using STA that it is reasonable for one guardian to stay during practice per family. There will not be any siblings or other family members allowed to stay within the arena during practice as we need to limit the total number of people in the arena at one time.

The arena will have designated viewing areas in the cold section (no guardians will be permitted to observe practice from the lobby/warm area). The municipality will also attempt to limit cross over between players/families who are using the ice before and after your child’s ice time. As such, if you child is assigned dressing room 1, 2 or 3, the guardian will need to go to the designated viewing area on the “Home” side of the arena (south side of the ice surface). If your child is in dressing room 4, 5 or 6, you will need to observe practice from the “Visitor” side of the arena (north side of the ice surface). Please following the physical distancing guidelines and signage posted at the arena.

If you would prefer to wait in the parking lot during practice, please ensure your player’s bench staff can contact you if needed during practice.

For further information, please read the South Huron Municipality Ice Guidelines.
