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.

Important Message from Hockey Winnipeg

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.

HOCKEY MANITOBA RELEASES VERSION 2

OF RETURN TO PLAY PLAN


Hockey Manitoba is pleased to release Version 2 of our Return to Play (RTP) plan as we prepare to enter Phase 3 and the start of regular season competition
 

 

Return to Play Plan - Version 2

 

 

Phase 3 of Hockey Manitoba’s Return to Play plan involving regular season competition will begin on Thursday October 1, 2020 for Regions, Leagues, and Accredited Sports Schools that have been already approved by Hockey Manitoba. 
 
All Regions, Leagues, and Accredited Sports Schools were required to submit Protocol Compliance Documents to Hockey Manitoba by September 15, 2020.  At this time, a number of Regions and Leagues have not yet been approved to proceed into Phase 3.

Hockey Manitoba will be posting a list of Regions, Leagues, and Accredited Sports Schools that have been approved for Phase 3 to the Return to Play section of our website on Thursday October 1, 2020.  This list will be updated on a frequent basis.

MANDATORY FACE MASKS

Effective Monday September 28, 2020, players, coaches, staff, volunteers, spectators, and officials will be required to wear face masks in facilities where Hockey Manitoba-sanctioned activities take place.

Players and officials are not required to wear face masks while on the ice engaging in physical activity but are required to wear masks in the dressing room prior to going on the ice.  Team officials, including coaches, are required to wear face masks while on the bench.

Masks will also be mandatory for all facilitators and participants attending in-person coaching and officiating clinics across the province.

The major updates included in Version 2 of the RTP plan are summarized on page 5 of the Hockey Manitoba Return to Play plan – Version 2.


SPORT MANITOBA UPDATE

Following the decision on Friday September 25, 2020 by Manitoba's public health officials to elevate the Pandemic Response System level for the Winnipeg Metropolitan Region to Restricted (orange), Sport Manitoba released an update (included below) which specifically addresses how the Province's announcement affects athletic activity in the province.

The maximum occupancy of 10 people indoors and outdoors and the wearing of masks does not apply to those actively engaging in athletic or fitness activities. 

 

It is of critical importance that all Provincial Sport Organizations and members continue to follow their Return to Play plans and protocols with emphasis on the fundamentals to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
 

1. Stay home if you feel sick
2. Wash/sanitize your hands, cover your cough and physically distance 
when you are with people outside of your household                        
3. If you cannot physically distance, you should wear a mask to help 
reduce your risk 
4. Reduce the number of close contacts outside your household,
and avoid closed-in or crowded spaces

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

https://tnyf.campbrainregistration.com/ 

  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.
