COVID-19 Updates (Orillia Ladies Hockey League)

PrintCOVID-19 Updates
COVID News - Updated Aug. 31/20

This information is based upon the latest updates from the City of Orillia, Hockey Canada, Ontario Hockey Federation and Ontario Womens' Hockey Association.  Failure to comply with the City's COVID protocols may result in losing our current ice times and any future ice contracts with the City.

  1. Ice contract is Sunday September 20th and runs until the end of December.  The City and the Health Unit will be reviewing things later this fall and determining if we will be issued another ice contract after the new year.

  2. We have 4 hrs of ice each Sunday night; 6:10pm to 10:10pm (game times 6:10, 7:10, 8:10 and 9:10)

  3. We are limited to "bubbles" of 50 people - therefore we can have 50 players in tier 1 and 50 players in tier 2, for a total of 100 players. This translates to 4 teams per division with 12 players (incl. goalies) per team.

  4. We will be at BRIAN ORSER instead of Rotary. We do not have a choice in this.  The City is only opening Orser and the green side at Rotary, so there is limited ice availability to be split amongst all those groups looking for ice.

  5. All participants MUST arrive as fully dressed as possible. We will be given one dressing room per team like normal, but they are really only to be used to put on skates and store our bags while we're on the ice.  Dressing rooms to contain 9 people maximum at a time.
  6. Players will only be permitted into the facility 15min before their scheduled ice times and MUST vacate facility within 15min after ice time is complete.

  7. Bring your own water bottle, pre-filled at home.  No sharing of water bottles.

  8. NO showers.  Bathrooms to be used only if absolutely necessary.

  9. You will need to wear a mask from the time you enter the facility until the time you put your helmet on.  When you get off the ice, once you take your helmet off you must put your mask back on.

  10. At this time, there is no recommendation re. type of hockey cage required (traditional vs full face plastic shield).
  11. You must practice proper hand hygiene and social distancing while in the facility. 

  12. Players can belong to only one league in the province.  For example, if you play for OLHL you cannot also play in Barrie or Muskoka, or be rostered as bench staff with your kid's team, or play on a tournament team.

  13. At this time, there is no shinny planned through the City.  If this changes we will be notified.

  14. We do not yet know how referees will be assigned, but the City recommendation is that they are dedicated to one league in order to avoid travel and contact between different leagues. 

  15. No coaches or bench staff.  No spectators.  

Updates will be provided as new information becomes available.
