We have posted the Hinton MHA Visiting Teams Arena Guidelines on our website under the HMHA Info Tab.
You may also follow this link for the file. https://cloud.rampinteractive.com/hintonmha/files/HintonVisitingTeamArenaGuidelines.pdf
Please adhere to these guidelines to ensure a safe and healthy season!
HMHA may use the dressing rooms for practices as long as the Town Guidelines are followed. Practices there will be a 15 minute time limit before and after practice for dressing and undressing with the exception of goalies. Games there wills be a 30 minute time limit before and 20 minute time limit after game time. Showers will be closed.
These rooms are strategically assigned and CANNOT be changed by HMHA! On the practice schedule below, DR stands for your teams dressing room number. (These are subject to change as well.)
The Head Coach or delegate (and ONLY the coach) will enter in the front main entry doors, sign out the dressing room key from the front and go open the doors at the top of the stairs for player entry. Coaches will be responsible for taking player attendance. Team attendance forms are located in the copy room in a black magazine file and in there is a folder for each team. Coaches MUST ensure to lock the rooms after their practice and return the keys.
Players are required to ONLY enter the facility through the door up the stairs to the right of the main doors if playing in the Bill Thompson Arena or through the doors between the library and pool if playing in the Steve Hotchkiss Arena. Please do not come early. Players should wait at the designated doors for someone to let them in and should NOT be entering through the main doors. Masks ARE required for players when entering the building AND in the dressing rooms and can be removed once players are ready to head out to the ice. Upon exiting, clean up any garbage left in the rooms. As always, NO SPITTING will be tolerated ANYWHERE.
Parents/Spectators staying to watch must enter in the front MAIN ENTRY doors, sanitize and sign in and ensure to adhere all town guidelines and signage. If parents need to assist players with their equipment a mask must be worn in the dressing room. Please follow the arrows on the floor for entry into the arenas.
Off Ice Officials for Games must sign in on the top section of the sign in sheet at the front. This way they are not taking up seating capacity since they will not be seated in the stands.
Spectators and players must exit the same way they came in.
Masks ARE required when physical distancing cannot be followed.
The most current Town of Hinton guidelines are located on our website under the HMHA Info Tab https://cloud.rampinteractive.com/hintonmha/files/ArenaPandemicGuidelines2020-10.pdf
Please be respectful and follow these guidelines so we can continue to have use of the dressing rooms and have the privilege to watch our kids practice and play.
These practice times are currently tentative and are subject to change. Please continue to watch for updates on the Facebook Page and check your emails for any changes.
Hello Hockey Families,
Please take a minute to review the Return to Play Plan as released by Hockey Alberta. They have completed a Return to Hockey Plan that incorporates the current requirements outlined in Stage 2 of the Government of Alberta’s Relaunch Plan, health and safety guidelines from Hockey Canada, and programming, registration and sanctioning for Hockey Alberta.
The most recent plan, which was updated on September 3rd, 2020, provides the framework and minimum standards for Hockey Alberta’s Members to undertake hockey activities. It also allows players, coaches, officials, parents and other stakeholders to understand the current guidelines for operating sanctioned hockey for the 2020-21 season.
Hockey Alberta has worked with Hockey Canada and other provincial branches, Government of Alberta, Provincial Sport Organizations, and our Members, staff and volunteers to develop Alberta’s Return to Hockey Plan. The purpose of the Return to Hockey plan is to provide options for a restart to hockey in Alberta, to outline required safety protocols and requirements, and to assist our Members with tasks they need to be undertaking for hockey to re-start.
The Return to Hockey Plan meets the current health and safety requirements of the Government of Alberta and aligns with Hockey Canada’s Return to Hockey Safety Guidelines in focusing on the safety and well-being of all participants. Updated versions of the Plan will be circulated to Hockey Alberta Members, and posted to this webpage, as required based on changes to the Government of Alberta’s Relaunch Plan.
Take care and stay safe!
Hinton Minor Hockey Association Executive
