We also wanted to make you aware of the following important items:

  • Parents are NOT ALLOWED in the dressing room at any time, approved volunteers/coaches only.

  • Parents will not be allowed in to tie skates, we will have volunteers who will be looking after that for any player that needs skates tied

  • Goalie parents will be allowed to help with goalie with their pads but are not permitted to enter dressing room.

  • Please arrive 30 minutes before game time to allow for time to get your balancing jersey. 

Thanks for your patience and ongoing support. Let's get this season started and we look forward to seeing you all at the rink very soon!
