Hockey Edmonton has been working hard to ensure we have a plan to move forward and return to hockey. The link below takes you to Hockey Edmonton's Return to Hockey Plan 2020-21 page where the most recent information on the subject can be found.
Special Notice from Hockey Edmonton (Sept 10, 2020)
We have received a few complaints in respect to following the City of Edmonton COVID-19 protocols. While the number of complaints we have received to date is not substantial, the fact that we are receiving complaints from the City regarding our members and violations of protocols in place, is something we need to address.
The good news is, for the number of ice slots we have used since the return to City of Edmonton facilities in July, we have received very few complaints about our players, parents and spectators which is a testament to the great job our Clubs, Districts and Operating Areas have done educating parents and players.
It is imperative that we ensure we follow all protocols in place in the arenas. This includes spectators, direction for access and exit from the facility as well as rules around ice and facility use (for example, use of showers is not permitted however we had an issue with that occurring).
We are aware that our members are doing a great job during this difficult time, but as we know, it takes only one or two incidents to distract from the hard work of the group as a whole.
Please keep in mind that everyone is required to follow all the protocols in place for Return to Hockey, and especially those of the facilities we are privileged to use. Further violations could result in consequences to our ice use.
Thank you for your cooperation in moving forward with this unique season!
