Back to Rinks Update

Hello EJYH Families.

 

I understand everyone is anxious to get back on the ice and there is a lot of information coming out, which is not always easily understood. NYSAHA hosted a zoom call last night in regards to Returning back to the Rinks.

Summary:

Rink managers will need to have a protocol in place prior to opening. This should include items in regards to locker rooms, spectators, concessions, restrooms, lobbies, etc.

Practices will most likely be skills and drills only, no competitive play.  We do not know the size of groups allowed on ice at this time. This will be decided not only by NYS, but also by CHemung County.

NYS will not enter phase 4 until July 6 (subject to change). Associations  that have already formed teams cannot hold any organized practices or events, nor can they attend events in other states, as they have to follow the guidelines as a NY team.

An update to camps and USA Hockey insurance :

The majority of camps are not USA Hockey sanctioned, but rather private skates. If you are planning on attending, it is important to ask if the session has insurance, in case of accidents. Non-USA Hockey sanctioned events are not covered by USA Hockey Insurance.
