Phase 2: Nov 7 - 23, 2020
As of Nov 7th, 2020 at 10 PM the PHO has ordered all indoor sports activities to move back to Phase 2 protocols as per viaSport and BC Hockey.
Rinks at Richmond Ice Centre and Minoru will remain open, but this is subject to change. Dressing rooms will not be open for this period of time until further notice. Players are to come partially dressed, masks on and after check in are to proceed to the arena benches to put on their skates, helmets and gloves. For the younger age groups, we encourage them to come fully dressed, with their skates on.
We have developed a specific plan that all players, parents, coaches and volunteers are expected to follow:
- Rink Entry – 10 minutes prior to ice time. Please arrive in the parking lot between 15 and 30 mins before your ice time. Players, team officials, referees, will only be allowed in the building 10 minutes before their ice time. No early entry permitted!
- Every participant entering the facility will need to do a health screen via Teamsnap HealthCheck and show results to the volunteer at check in. Please arrive fully dressed with a mask on. We recommend U9 and under to be fully dressed with skates on, prior to entering the building.
- Goalies can come partially dressed and put the pads, skates, gloves and helmets on at the player benches.
- Check in lines will be set up outside of the main entrances for players. Masks are mandatory as per the City of Richmond. All participants will need to wear masks inside and outside the building. No mask, no entry.
- After check in, all participants need to hand sanitize. The HCSP (safety person) will take the participants into their rink. Please follow the directional flow arrows and signage while maintaining 2m distance.
- Small duffle bags are allowed inside the rink and large hockey bags are not permitted.
- A HCSP will be designated inside and out of the rink to help answer questions for players, direct traffic flow and attend emergencies.
- There will be designated “numbered” spots on the bench for players and water bottles for proper distancing during practices and skills sessions.
- Every athlete must have their own pre-filled water bottle prior to arriving. (no sharing)
- Spitting is strictly prohibited.
- At the conclusion of your ice time, players will have a maximum of 10 minutes to EXIT the building. Please hand sanitize before exiting.
- Please refer to facility flow maps. A mask must be worn in all common areas. U9 and under players can enter the facility with helmets on and no mask. Please pick up your player at the CORRECT Exit door.
- No public washrooms for spectators on the rink level. You are allowed to use Stanley’s washrooms, enter from the outside entry door only.
Group Size practices & Skills Only:

Your cooperation and compliance with the above protocols is very much appreciated and will help ensure that we avoid any bottlenecking of people and occurrences where physical distancing becomes more challenging.
