OCTOBER 30, 2020 – UPDATE FROM HOCKEY WINNIPEG
There has been an update from the Government of Manitoba. It reads:
The Winnipeg Metropolitan region will move to the Critical level (red) on the #RestartMB Pandemic Response System effective Monday, November 2nd. The following measures will be put in place:
Sports and Recreation Activities
Hockey Winnipeg is implementing the following directives:
Hockey Winnipeg would like to encourage our members to follow the Provincial guidelines, the sooner we can stop the spread of Covid-19 the sooner we can get back to the rink.
When more information becomes available regarding a return to sanctioned activity it will be shared at that time.
As we continue to navigate through the challenges presented to us, I would ask that you get the message out to all of your participants about rink protocol. Please ensure that you forward this message out to ALL of your coaches at ALL levels. Please also insist that they forward this information on to ALL PARENTS.
Since this differs from rink to rink, our message is very clear and will apply to all rinks.
Only 1 parent/spectator per player will be permitted.
Arrive just prior to game time and remain in your seat with your mask on the entire time unless using the washroom.
****DO NOT STAND AROUND CHATTING IN THE LOBBY.
You are there to watch the game/practice - not to socialize or congregate in groups in the lobby. You are either in the rink in your seat, in the washroom, or in your car. There are NO OTHER OPTIONS.****
After the ice time, leave the rink and building and wait in your car for your child without congregating in groups outside of the entrance. The exception to this is obviously younger kids that require assistance.
***This applies to all levels of hockey Male and Female A, AA and AAA.***
The rink staff will not be walking around to enforce rules and get into confrontations, however they WILL report non compliance and that WILL put us at risk of losing our ice privileges' and risk losing our season.
Let's all remember that this is about the children and the many benefits associated with them being active. It is IMPERATIVE that we all follow these rules and enforce compliance at ALL facilities.
.The APHA store will be open due to popular demand

The True North Youth Foundation is excited to announce a Hockey Equipment Rental Service to low income families or families who simply can’t afford a set of hockey equipment for the upcoming season.
We will be offering this service at a cost of $100 with a $50 deposit being returned when the equipment is returned in good condition. That’s only $50 for a full set of hockey equipment for a full season!
We will also have an option to purchase a hockey stick for only $20 and a mouthguard for only $5.
Here is the link for registration on our website
Here families can register to rent a set of hockey equipment, pay, and sign up for an equipment fitting session at the BellMTS Iceplex. We will be running this program from September 14th to October 18th with equipment being returned at the end of the season.
This is our first year offering this service and we hope to continue to offer it each season and expand on it! We are finalizing our waiver and registration process and hope to launch this Monday, September 14, 2020.
Feel free to pass this information to families who may be in need of this service or people you think would be interested.
More information to come!
