Updated information September 1, 2021

Considering changes due to Covid-19, we have some important information that requires your attention and we appreciate you taking the time to carefully review the information below and in the poster below.

1. We are increasing our usage of the TeamSnap app this year, more specifically, in how we communicate about hockey activities. Please ensure that any adults that should be included in messages, emails, etc. regarding your player have also downloaded the TeamSnap app. It is your responsibility to ensure that whomever requires receipt of a team email/message that they are properly set up in TeamSnap. Please have this done before October 5.

2. We will be using TeamSnap to conduct a Pre-Practice/Game Health Checklist that each parent/guardian must complete prior to dropping off their player at the rink. Please ensure that the appropriate parent has access to the app to complete this checklist for every practice or game or your player will not be allowed on the ice.

Completing this checklist ahead of time using the TeamSnap app will lessen the workload required of coaches and arena staff from having to screen each individual player upon arrival at the rink.

3. We will be updating our Covid-19 Guidelines/Procedures on the website before the start of our season in early October. A message will be circulated via TeamSnap once it is ready and we expect all parents and guardians to review this prior to your player’s first practice.
