Important Covid-19 Awareness
With Covid-19 cases on the rise in Simcoe County, now is the time to increase our vigilance for following Covid-19 protocols. There have been positive cases in our hockey community this fall, so every one of us needs to renew our commitment to keeping each other safe by following Covid-19 protocols.


We feel it is important to remind you and our participants of the importance of these all protocols and public health directives in place.

1. Masks must be worn by players at all times while not on the ice. Masks should be removed only immediately before leaving the dressing room, and must be worn again upon returning after the game or practice. Coaches and managers are being supported to ensure adherence by teams and parents to these guidelines.


2. When identified as a close contact of a positive case, it’s important to follow the guidance provided by the Simcoe Muskoka District Health unit.
Players or staff who need to miss practices or games for any Covid-19 related reason should update their Coach, Manager or Trainer as soon as possible.

3. If your child has been advised to isolate because of a school related close contact, you are required to follow the instructions provided to you in the letter provided to you by the school/health unit.  If the child is isolating due to a school close contact that also means that they cannot attend hockey until the isolation period is over.

4. Individuals must not attend any hockey activities if they are showing any symptoms of COVID-19.
