There will also be a QR code that you can scan upon arrival to the arena if you have forgotten to complete it. For those people without a phone/computer, an alternative will be provided to you at the door. Screenings must be completed the day of your visit.


SPECTATORS – Spectators arenow allowed in the building, but are limited to 1 spectator/guardian per participant. Spectators must also complete the screening tool and will be allowed into the building, after the players and at the beginning of the ice bookingOnce you have entered the building, you must remain for the scheduled ice time. 


MASKING – All participants & spectators must remain masked while in line to enter the building, and while in the arena. Participants may remove their masks when they put their helmets on, or when they enter the ice. 


BOOKINGS - Groups will be let in 15 minutes prior to your ice time, and staff will communicate dressing room allocations to you, once attendance/screenings have been confirmed.
