Format for the remaining 2020-2021 hockey development season:

• All skaters have been divided into groups that will allow us to conform with the Alberta restrictions for reducing spread of COVID-19; 10 or less participants per half of the ice surface (including coaches and players). 
• One/Two Head Coach’s have be assigned to each group and will be responsible for both A & B (i.e. Group 1A + 1B, Group 2A + 2B, etc.). Each team can have a set schedule of assistant coaches who will be on the ice for each skate, or they may rotate from day to day. 
• Each group has been divided in half so there is an A and a B component to your group. This will indicate the group of skaters that will occupy the same dressing and half of the ice surface during the ice session.  For the TLC dressing rooms will be assigned for each group, for the Agrena since there is no dressing room access,  Group A will be the North side of the rink and Group B will be the south side of the rink. If the coach wishes to mix up the players from day to day, the list can be submitted to the office in advance so that the roster can be posted to facilitate appropriate dressing room use and division of players on the ice.
• The head coach(es) will be responsible for creating and communicating the practice plans with their on-ice helpers and their players. Resources will be available to assist our coaches with the practice plans; all skaters must remain 3m apart at all times and coaches are not permitted to talk or mingle amongst the two halves of the ice. We have a wealth of knowledge and hockey experience within SGMHA to draw upon, please contact our Player director, Coach director or your Division director if any help is needed.
• Attendance for both coaches and players, will be required for each skate and must be submitted to the office no later than 24 hours following each ice time. Please use the attached Attendance Report form when submitting. 
Parents are to complete the Daily Checklist the day of their child’s ice session and if they answer YES to any of the questions not to bring their child to their ice session.

Arena guidelines and all restrictions (such as continuous masking by parents and coaches) must be strictly adhered to. Failure to do so may result in your group losing their access to further ice sessions.

• The short timeline and restrictions we have to work with have posed some serious logistical difficulties in arranging ice times for our players, we appreciate everyone's patience as we work through all of this. If any changes to the format are required, further communication will be provided.
