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.
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.
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.
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.
The following is the locker room assignments for practices starting Tuesday September 8th. We have tried to space everyone one when possible. Please practice social distancing when getting dressed and undressed for practices.
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:
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.
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.
