STAYING SAFE AT THE RINK

Swords Families,

As we finish our 2nd week of the season, the Swords Leadership Team would like to point out some of the things that we as an association do to stay safe at the rink and what you can do to help.

Association Items:

**All of our coaches, managers, and locker room supervisors have USA Hockey Safe Sport training and have a Background Screening through Mid-Am Hockey.

**AED kits are located in each rink in the event of a cardiac arrest on one of the rinks.  They are serviced monthly by Cintas and thankfully have never been used.

**Purchasing masks for the players and coaches.  This should be delivered soon, as we are waiting on the completion of our order from the vendor.

**Communication with Mid-Am Hockey when we have questions on USAH policy.

**A good relationship with the Rink Director so that issues can be resolved quickly.

**Providing cleaning supplies for our team rented locker rooms.

 

Families can help by:

**Wearing masks when in the building and not on the ice.

**Not coming to the rink when ill with Covid Symptoms, Flu Symptoms, etc.

**Keeping rink doors shut when players are on the ice surface

**Parents should remain out of the bench area during practice and games.

** Players should remain off the ice and keep rink doors closed until the Zamboni doors are closed and a coach is on the ice.

 

If we all work together, we can have a safe and fun Swords Hockey season.

Swords Covid Policy

Swords Team COVID-19 Policies

Swords families: Please note that a Health Wellness check will need to be completed prior to arriving at the rink, your Team will be keeping a record of this information just in case we need to contact you – this is for contract tracing purposes. Teams are using a variety of apps to do this check.  Please make sure you know what your team is using.  Temperatures will also be taken before every game and practice.  Sports Plus does have Hand Sanitizing stations throughout the facility and they also disinfect the lobby area and locker rooms between games.

Coaches:

  • Wear masks at all times throughout the facility until on the ice / bench areas. We strongly recommend that masks be worn by coaches as well when on the benches.
  • Any trainers or parent volunteers that also need to be in close proximity to a player shall also wear a mask when in contact with the player(s).  We also suggest that a trainer wear gloves when dealing with an injured player as well as the mask.
  • Any parent volunteer that is in the penalty box and/or the scorer’s area will need to wear a mask at all times.
  • Suggest to come inside the facility partially dressed or dress your team at intervals to minimize the time players are in a locker room.
  • After a game proceedings – a handshake line can still happen (agree with coaches before the game) will need to be fist bumps (players gloves on) and / or elbows.
  • Get out of the locker rooms as fast as possible so they can be cleaned – No congregating or long discussions with the team after a game – the lockers rooms need to be cleaned and ready for the next team to use.

Players:

  • Wear a mask at all times until helmet is on to go out on the ice.  This also includes in any locker room area or walking around the rink. Also, a mask must be worn as soon as the helmet comes off.
  • Socially distance when not on the ice, even if in full hockey gear
  • Before and After games please do not touch the glass or the boards – you can watch games from a distance.
  • Rink Lockers rooms, maintain social distancing where you can by leaving a space between you and your teammate.
  • Do not mess around in the locker room, get dressed and ready to go. Get undressed and leave.

Parents:

  • Wear a mask at all times
  • Socially distance where possibly around the rink
  • Can sit with immediate family members in the stands but maintain 6 foot socially distance between you and the next family – Please limit the number of family members.
  • You can space yourself around the rink but please do not touch the boards or glass
  • Please do not congregate in the lobby before or after a game, take your conversations outside once your player is out of the locker room.

 

Sincerely – Swords Leadership Team

COVID REFUND POLICY

Please note as part of the tryout registration, families agreed to the Swords refund policy.  While we do understand that COVID-19 presents the Swords and our families with a certain amount of uncertainty, we believe the current rink policy and our refund policy will be followed and includes:

  1. Rink closure per Sports Plus (level 3 emergency or State of Ohio mandate) – Sports Plus will only close in the event of a level 3 emergency or by a State of Ohio mandate.  If they do not close, we are obligated to pay for our commitment.  If the rink closes, we will be able to stop payments to Sports Plus and work on refunds based on time closed, etc. 
  2. Injury/Illness – if a player misses more than 1/3 of season and we have doctor’s confirmation of diagnosis we do a pro-rated refund.  COVID-19 diagnosis would fall under illness.
