PMHA Update...
Submitted By Karis Sylvester on Friday, October 9, 2020
PMHA Families: 

I hope all of our skaters are enjoying getting back on the ice. While it is not perfect and it is not the “normal” hockey we know it has been great seeing the excitement and energy our players are bringing to the ice.

As we navigate these strange times there are multiple bodies laying out protocols that we must follow. Our players and parents have done a good job of accepting and following the protocols for the most part. This is new for everyone so some leeway is given for exiting through the wrong door etc. but we did receive some requests for improvement from the arena staff based on the sample of skates through last weekend. I told them we would pass along these comments to reinforce the requirements for us to have hockey this year:

 

  • Please ensure both parents and skaters fill out the screening forms
  • Masks are mandatory in the building. Players must wear them until the point of putting on a helmet. When removing the helmet after practice the mask must go on. Wearing a helmet in or out of the arena is not an option. The arena staff have to wear theirs for 8 hours straight, the least we can do is wear them for ten minutes before and after the ice time
  • Please  DO NOT get fully undressed after your skate. There have been multiple groups undressing completely or almost completely. The rules are in place to ensure there is time to clean between groups but also to be respectful of others. Remove your helmet, skates, gloves, shoulder pads and go

 

The town has done a great job in working with us to make hockey work under the provincial regulations. Please do your part to ensure we can play hockey this season. If we are caught not following these rules we could ruin hockey for everyone. If an individual player needs to be asked multiple times to follow the rules the arena staff hold the power to ask players to leave. PMHA will be supporting the arena staff on this front as it is extremely important to follow these guidelines.

 

Thanks for your understanding and effort to bring hockey back to Petrolia.
