There is no arena access through the East (Nose Hill Drive) doors - this is for Life- mark clients only. AHS recommends the use of gloves when you are in our facility, but they are not mandatory.
Game play is approved for all established cohorts. A cohort consists of the same grouping of athletes for each event. CTA has limited the number of participants in a cohort.The maximum players allowed on the ice at any one time is 26 (including goalies).
The maximum players allowed on the ice at any one time is 28 (including goalies). The maximum number of coaches is 4. However, our dressing rooms can only accommodate 8 players per room with proper social distancing. Available seating will be marked in the dressing rooms. Please make sure that your players are sitting in the marked areas to ensure proper physical distancing. Each group will be assigned TWO dressing rooms and ONE of the spectator stands for your over flow players. Therefore, if you have more than 16 athletes, some players must come mostly dressed and use the assigned stands. It is hoped that all youth athletes will arrive mostly dressed. There will be no dressing in the hallways or player boxes. Please note that stands will be marked with available seating spaces. Please find a spot that is vacant. As of September 20... If a cohort has been established it is up to the coaches/team representatives if you are going to allow more players in the change rooms then the recommended 8. Do not ask for more than 2 dressing rooms, as they are not available.
As of September 28, We are limiting ONE PARENT PER ON ICE PARTICIPANT to spectate. All seating areas will be used for on ice participants so please stand in the designated areas. Coaches/team representatives, must take attendance of every parent that watches the event. This is extremely important for tracking purposes! I know that socializing is a big part of hockey, but we are not at that level just yet so please socially distance while watching your kids. NO SIBLINGS ARE PERMITTED Patience and diligence are key at this point.
Please have your athletes show up for ice times 20-25 MINUTES in advance. This is im- portant to reduce traffic flow. The arenas will need to be sanitized in between rentals so it is key that we keep an organized plan so that AHS does not shut us down. When you show up to our facility, follow the arrows to your assigned dressing rooms or stands and get ready to play, You must stay in the dressing room or stands until the operator blows the horn for you to come out. You can then proceed to the players boxes. Again, the arena will be sanitized during the flood times, so it is important to stay in the dressing room or stands to allow our awesome staff the room to do their jobs. Please keep your physical distancing as you head to the ice. After your ice time, you will have 15 minutes to vacate the facility. Showers will be limited to 1 person at a time. Please stay in your seating area until it is your turn to use the shower. It is strongly recommended that you ask your players to shower at home. As you are leaving the dressing rooms, please make your way to the exit doors and ensure that you are not loitering in the lobby or the parking lot.All vending machines and water fountains are not in operation. As well, the concession will be closed. Please have your players fill up water bottles at home.
Coaches/team representatives are responsible for sanitizing their own equipment (i.e. pucks, pylons etc). They are also responsible for ensuring that their athletes are adhering to physical distancing requirements. Anyone that is found to be not following the posted rules will be asked to leave the facility immediately. This is very important, as AHS will be moni- toring facilities for compliance.There will be no loitering in the lobby. The lobby is a no stop zone - flow through traffic only. Anyone caught loitering in the lobby will be asked to leave the facility immediately.
Hand sanitizing stations can be found in the lobby while supplies last. Otherwise, hand washing is encouraged. Washrooms in the lobby will be open. Fixtures will be reduced to accommodate physical distancing. The Facility will be cleaned and disinfected between each group.LEAVE ALL VALUABLES AT HOME! Please do not leave any valuables in your vehicle. Vehicle break ins are inevitable at recreation facilities. Please do not think that leaving items in your car is a good idea.
