COVID-19 Update

The following are the modified policies Effective December 23, 2020 for The Breakaway Ice Center. These follow the State Guidelines and are modified locally after the State rolled us back to Phase 3 step 1. While we do not agree with all of the guidelines, we are asking for support so that we can all enjoy the sport of hockey we love. We do have state mandated capacity limits and this plays a role in our process. The following applies to ALL PRACTICES AND / OR GAMES as noted~

 

*** For games on-line waivers are NO LONGER required. We are trying to streamline the process especially for our in house teams. Check in is REQUIRED for one parent or spectator FOR YOUR OWN PLAYER ONLY.

1) BAGS ARE ALLOWED ONLY IF THE PLAYER COMES WITH HIS / HER “LOWERS” ALREADY ON. PLAYERS ALSO MUST LEAVE WITH LOWERS ON. YOU MAY NOT FULLY DRESS OR UNDRESS IN THE FACILITY.

BAGS AND PERSONAL ITEMS MAY BE LEFT IN THOSE ASSIGNED AREAS AND YOU MAY RETURN TO THOSE AREAS TO REMOVE SKATES AND QUICKLY EXIT THE BUILDING. (LOWERS MUST REMAIN ON AT ALL TIMES)
3) WE WILL NOW UTILIZE ONLY TWO EXITS. FOR RINK 1 ITS UNDER THE SCOREBOARD. FOR RINK 2 ITS THE EXIT TO THE SIDE BY THE TURF FIELDS.

1)WE ARE ALLOWING ONE SPECTATOR PER PLAYER FOR GAMES ONLY! We will use the following protocols:

E) We would ask you as spectators to leave the building immediately after the game you are attending and meet your player outside.

 

2) Players may enter the building 15 to 20 minutes before the Zamboni is going on the ice from the previous game. No players may enter until a coach has checked in with a roster or sticker. We will notify coaches outside the front door. Please be ready right outside. This applies to practices and games. Coaches should have your teams ready to go outside.
