Arena Use Guidelines
Submitted By KMHA on Friday, August 21, 2020
Fellow Kinucks,

     As we continue with our return to hockey framework, the Municipality of Kincardine has issued guidelines for users to follow when they are safely able to re-open both the Davidson Centre as well as the Tiverton Arena.

Some key areas to be familiar with are as follows

  • Participants must arrive between 10 and 20 minutes prior to the designated time.  Nobody will be allowed to enter outside of this window.
  •  Participants must arrive in full ice attire except for skates, gloves, and helmet (and pads for goalies). Dressing in the parking lot is not permitted and a minimum physical distance of 2 meters must be observed.
  •  Subject to the Public Health Unit and/or Municipality of Kincardine by-laws, all people entering the facility MUST always wear face coverings.  Ice users may only remove the face covering immediately prior to entering the ice surface.  No spitting or blowing the nose without a tissue is permitted anywhere in the facility.
  •  The maximum number of people permitted in the ice area (Ice pad, players benches, penalty benches, timekeepers' box) is 50 but is subject to the Province of Ontario restrictions. 
  •  All participants on the ice must be wearing skates, helmet and gloves.   
  •  No spectators are permitted.  One parent or guardian is permitted for each attendee under the age of 18.  Parents/guardians are permitted in the designated areas of each specific arena.  There will not be a seating area and the parents/guardians and must maintain a minimum distance of 2 meters from each other.
  •  Players may only carry a stick, helmet, and water bottle (no other food or drink is permitted).  The water bottle must be clearly labelled and filled prior to entry to the facility.  Water filling stations will NOT be available for use.
  •  Upon arrival, players must be escorted to their side by the renter or representative.  There will be stations available where skates, gloves and helmets can be worn.  Any article of non-ice related clothing must be kept at the station while on the ice.  Renters are strongly encouraged to bring and use hand sanitizer.
  •  While on the ice, all participants must maintain physical distancing (except fora medical emergency).  Water bottles must be spaced at least 2m apart.  Washroom use is limited to emergencies for participants.
  •  Once the time slot is over, all participants must exit the ice immediately, change out of skates and exit the facility immediately. No access is permitted to any other area of the facility.
  •  The directions of arena staff must be followed.
  •  If there is any violation of these policies, the rental shall cease immediately, and all participants will be asked to leave.  No refunds or credits will be given, and future bookings may be cancelled.

For additional information on facility use outside if KMHA please contact Municipality of Kincardine Arena Staff

Thank you
