*Tentative Practice Schedule*
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.
Good news! Starting this week, HMHA may now use the dressing rooms for practices. There will still be a 15 minute time limit before and after practice for dressing and undressing with the exception of goalies. 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.)
Players will continue to enter up the stairs to the right of the main doors. (There will be a separate procedure for U7 and U9 which will be discussed in the parent meetings.) Masks WILL be 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.
Coaches will enter in the front 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. (More information for coaches to follow.)
Any parents staying to watch must enter in the front 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.
Parents and players must exit the same way they came in.
It is recommended masks should be worn when physical distancing cannot be followed.
The Town of Hinton will send out updated guidelines sometime this week but in the mean time please be respectful. Clean up any garbage left in the rooms. As always, NO SPITTING will be tolerated ANYWHERE. Coaches MUST ensure to lock the rooms after their practice and return the keys.
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
