It is very important that parents, players and volunteers understand how they play a critical role in the safety for everyone during the 2021-22 season.


Ontario Self Screening Check list - we ask that all parents are self screening your player prior to leaving for a scheduled ice time (practice or game) - similar to what you would do on a school day with your child(ren).  If you child is not feeling well or has any of the symptom in this check list please do not send them to hockey.  Let the coach or manager know with as much advanced notice as possible.
