COVID-19 Player Arrival and Exit at Arena


Please watch the instructional video “Welcome Back to Both Ice Pads at the Wilmot Recreation Complex” BEFORE your first ice time! This video contains important information for NHHA participants. 


What time should we arrive at the arena?

If you have completed your screening questionnaire (and answered “NO” to all questions) then you should plan to arrive at the arena 10 minutes prior to your scheduled ice time. 


If you did not complete your health screening questionnaire in advance, you should arrive at least 20 minutes prior to your scheduled ice time so that you can complete the screening before entering the arena. 


Nobody will be permitted entry to the building until 10 minutes before their scheduled ice time. Please observe physical distancing while waiting outside the entrance.


What if we arrive late?

It is very important that players be ready to enter the arena 10 minutes prior to their ice time.  If they are late, the doors may be locked and the player will not be able to enter.  Family members will not be able to leave and re-enter the arena during the ice time.  There will only be someone at the door 10 minutes before and 5 minutes after.


Where do players get dressed?

At this time, there is no access to dressing rooms at the WRC. Players should be fully dressed and ready to go on the ice when they arrive at the arena, with the exception of skates, helmet, and gloves. Bring these in a small carrying bag, as there is not enough space for big hockey bags. Watch the video referenced above for more information.


Are masks required?

You MUST wear a mask that covers your mouth and nose at all times while you are in the arena building. Player’s masks can only be removed when they put their helmet on to play. Masks are NOT required on the ice, but they must be reapplied as soon as helmets are removed at the end of your ice time. Parents or spectators must wear masks at all times.


What about spectators?

ONE parent or adult family member is permitted to stand on the designated X’s in the lobby of the WRC to watch their player through the glass. Siblings are NOT PERMITTED at this time. Space exists for up to 25 parents - when that space is filled up, no additional spectators are allowed. Please note that you cannot re-enter the facility if you leave for any reason, so please make arrangements for another parent to help your player after practice if they need it and let your player know where to find you.


What time should we pick players up after their ice time?

Players must exit the building 5 minutes after the end of their ice time.  Players will not be permitted to hang around in the WRC lobby, so it is important to pick up promptly.
