Arena Operations Reminder
Submitted By Matt Redmond on Wednesday, November 18, 2020
Hello All LSMHA Families,

We are now 2 months into the hockey season, and want to take this time to pass on some reminders from the municipality and the LSMHA board. As the Covid-19 levels continue to increase across Ontario it is important that we do not become complacent and ensure we are all fully adhering to the requirements of Lambton Shores, our association and OMHA/OHF.

Update From The Municipality:
Previously, we had sent our facility reopening plans to each user group which outline the rules and responsibilities in the arenas. The plans are updated regularly on our website, and can be found here:

Under the Province’s new framework, we remain at the Green level. For recreation, there is little to no impact to our current guidelines and practices. To learn more about the framework, please see this link:

Please be aware that while most of our experiences with reopening have been positive, staff are witnessing some behaviours that need to be addressed. Specifically:
* Too many skaters on the ice/bench. The maximum number of people allowed in the ice area (including skaters, timekeepers, scorekeepers, bench staff, coaches, etc.) is 25.
* Masks are required for everyone not skating on the ice. Masks are required for ages 2 and up per the Province of Ontario.
* The maximum number of spectators is 25, and spectators must enter through the spectator area.
* Groups must assign a designated person to monitor the front door for the entire practice/ice time. This person must not leave the front door unless the next rental monitor has arrived.
* Players and coaches are granted access to the facility 15 minutes before the rental and must not enter before that time unless approved by the Municipality.
* Door monitors are expected to be ready to sign people in 15 minutes before the start of the rental.


Update From The LSMHA Board:
In addition to the requirements of the municipality we want to highlight some additional requirements of minor hockey.
* All players and parents must sign in at the front door for every on ice session.
* All players must pass the health screening questions to attend an on ice session. Please see the attached updated health questionnaire from OHF.
* For U11 groups and below, only 1 spectator is allowed per player. No exceptions, and this includes babies and toddlers.
* For U13 groups and above, additional spectators are allowed, up to a maximum of 23, but any spectators above one per player must sign the waiting list and wait until the ice time has started before entering the building.
* If you have been assigned to work the door for an on ice session between Monday to Saturday, it is your responsibility to be there 15 minutes before the the ice time starts, so that you can be organized and prepared before the players start entering.
* If your player is unwell and going for testing, or has tested positive, we ask that you be proactive and notify Lorna Nieuwenhuizen/Todd Rannie as soon as possible.
* If you are a coach or on-ice helper that crosses the border for work, please notify Scott Wilson and Lorna Nieuwenhuizen immediately.
* Teams who have players, coaches or parents not adhering to the rules of the municipality or LSMHA will have all of their scheduled ice time removed for a week.

Thanks everyone for your continued efforts in ensuring we can all keep healthy and that our players can keep enjoying the sport of hockey.
