3. Two spectators are permitted per player.

Players will continue to be screened for Covid-19 symptoms. Please stay home if you are sick.

Masks are required. No food and drink is permitted in the facility.

A valid piece of ID will be required (Ex: drivers license, passport, government issued ID card, health card, birth certificate, student card, Secure Certificate of Indian Status). Please be kind to our volunteers, we have a zero tolerance policy for abuse of any kind. Parents who are not fully vaccinated will have to either drop off their children for these activities (if that is possible) or have a fully vaccinated adult accompany them (if adult supervision is required or preferred). Please note - Thank you to those parents who sent in your vaccine records. We will continue to check at the door until teams are established with safety reps; then an update will be made (re-screening process).

Youth who are 13 to 18 and have proof that they received 1 dose of COVID-19 vaccine can participate in sport, recreation, arts and culture programming hosted by a business or organization as of October 4. To continue participating, they must provide proof of full vaccination by November 9, 2021. In order to be fully vaccinated by November 9, a person needs to get a first dose no later than September 28 and a second dose no later than October 26. If youth choose not to get vaccinated by the time these grace periods end, they will no longer be able to participate until they can provide proof of vaccination.
