Technical Instruction includes: Stick Handling vs Puck Control,what techniques (moves) to apply when how and why. All the fancy moves only work if and when you can get your opponent to commit.

PHO - Safety Protocols

Unsure about facility protocols? Parents are encouraged to contact your home arena.
 

Masks

The PHO updated the Face Coverings (COVID-19) Order and reduced the age exemption from use of face coverings (masks) in indoor public spaces to less than 5 years of age from the previous 9 years of age. This means that effective immediately, we will require anyone aged 5 years and older to wear a mask. Masks must be worn in common areas but may be removed during physical activity (sport and exercise), when in the field of play. As was the case earlier this year, the following individuals are exempt from mask wearing:

  • children under 5 years
  • people who cannot wear a mask or who cannot put on or remove a mask without assistance
  • people who are not able to wear a mask for psychological, behavioural, or health condition, or due to a physical, cognitive or mental impairment

For more information, please review this press release from the provincial government: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/covid-19/info/restrictions#masks

Proof of Vaccinations

A reminder the proof of vaccination requirements have changed as of November 30. Users must be fully vaccinated with two doses of vaccine; one dose (partially vaccinated) will no longer be sufficient.

Maximum Capacity

On October 25, the province will revise restrictions limiting capacity for inside organized events and gatherings to allow a return to full capacity in those settings where the BC Vaccine Card is in place and proof of vaccination in checked. Please see this press release from the BC government for more details: https://news.gov.bc.ca/releases/2021HLTH0184-001999
