Hess Ice Rink Specific Guidelines:

 

Arriving at the rink…

  • We recommend players not show up for their ice session earlier than 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time. Players should show up at the rink dressed as much as possible, thus minimizing time in the locker room and congregating.

  • Enter through the new entrance on the North side of the New Locker Room Building. (Picture attached)

  • Only 1 parent / guardian is permitted in the building per player. Please no siblings or other family members in the rink.

  • Any player or parent who is ill, or has a cough, fever, or trouble breathing must stay home. Hess Ice Rink Management reserves the right to dismiss any individual displaying symptoms.

 

While at the rink…

  • Social distancing must be observed as much as practical. Please keep 6 feet away from others.

  • Face Masks are recommended at all times except for players and coaches when they are on the ice.

  • Cover coughs and sneezes.

  • Only the north end of the ice arena (Bleacher area) is open to watch practice.

  • Please adhere to any signage, taping or locked doors.  Certain areas are not ready for the public.

 

Departing the rink…

  • At the end of each ice session, players should undress and exit the locker room and the building within 15 minutes when possible.

  • Upon conclusion of ice session, exit into the rear parking lot on the west side of the new locker room building.
