NDMS President's Message
Submitted By Jen Stewart on Wed 10 21, 20
Hello Norwood Minor Hockey Families,

I hope you have been enjoying being back at the rink!  We certainly have enjoyed seeing you and all those smiling faces.
This season brings many new routines and its own challenges and we want to thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work through all the changes.



There are a few areas of concerns that we want to point out. It is imperative that we have your cooperation on all the items below.  Failure to comply with the facility rules could mean that - no spectators will be allowed admittance in the future or that we aren’t able to play hockey this year.  I know sometimes the rules seem overwhelming, but it is so important that we all do our part to continue to be able to play this year.  We hope that as we get closer to games that we are able to have the town revisit the procedures. 

The list of procedures is as follows:

COVID SCREENING – as of MONDAY October 26th, we will no longer have someone at the door doing COVID screening.  All players and parents will be required to fill out an online form that can be found at the top of our website. https://norwoodminorhockey.com/Forms/1391/COVID-19_Screening_(NDMS)/    Once you complete the form, you will receive an email with the results of your screening.  This needs to be completed each time you attend the arena.  Each team will have a COVID volunteer who will need to see a copy of your screening email before you can enter the arena.  This is a very quick process, but it is important that all families complete the form before coming to the arena.  You will not be able to enter without showing the confirmation email.  This will ensure the organization is contact tracing appropriately, which is a requirement of our ice rental agreement. 

 

Entry - Please sanitize your hands upon entry into the arena - there is sanitizer available in the lobby. Both Players and their parent/guardian need to use the sanitizer.

Sickness - If your player has ANY symptoms-  it is mandatory that they not come to the arena.  Players should be 24 hour symptom free before returning to play.   Players who are not attending school due to illness, should not be at a hockey practice or game.  It is very important that we limit any exposure, even for minor illness, if it spreads it could mean that a team is unable to play if everyone has some symptoms. 

In and Out Privileges -  Once you enter the arena, there is no re-entry.  Ensure you have all your belongings before you enter - water bottles, phones, coats, shoes. There can be no exceptions to this rule.  These are the rules set out in our rental agreement with the town. Once all members of a group have entered the arena, staff lock the door and sanitize ALL TOUCH POINTS. If you need to leave before your players is off the ice, you will have to wait outside for your players. We are also asking that you do not allow your friends in the side doors, as all these TOUCH POINTS are sanitized after each session to protect you and your players.

Dressing Rooms - At this time dressing rooms are closed. A new process was implemented this past week and is making for better flow and less congestion.  When you arrive you will be advised by arena staff whether you are getting ready in the lobby or the hallway. 

Exits - Please adhere to the signs posted and use side doors for exit from the building

If your player used lobby to get ready - they will exit via the doors between dressings rooms 1 & 2.

If your player used the hallway - you will exit via the doors at the end of the hall near the zamboni room.

 

 

This is a unique year, that is for sure.  And I am asking that we all work together to make it a successful year!  I want to thank all our volunteers who have been working hard behind the scenes to plan for the season, as well as all our coaches and on-ice help.  Let’s all remember that the most important thing is that our kids are getting exercise, challenging themselves, and hopefully having fun!  It is worth it to follow all these rules to ensure all our players can continue to play hockey this year!

 

Go Hornets Go!!
