Return to Play plan
A formal plan will be sent out to our association once our "Return to Play" plan is approved.
These are the highlights:
 - Come dressed to the arena, dressing rooms are available for 15 minutes prior and 15 minutes after practice
 - You can put on your skates, gloves and helmet in the dressing room.
 - No parents allowed in the arena (U11 age group and above).   Limited parents allowed for U7, U8 and U9.
 - Drop off at the front door for check in, leave through one of the exits by your change room.
 - Water bottle station is closed, bring a full water bottle.  
 - Teams will be selected by a committee including the coach and members from our executive. 
 - This is based on last year's team and skill level.  
 - Teams will consist of 9 skaters and 1 goalie, games will be 3 on 3 to start.  
 - 1st 4-6 weeks will be practices until we get a game schedule with our "Bubble" teams. 
 - Practices will be shared ice for all age groups. 
 - Maximum of 30 people on the ice at one time, this includes players and coaches.
 - A manager will be at the door for your team conducting health screening.

Notes for parents & players
MFMH is taking this situation very seriously and any person or player who does not follow the guidelines and rules set out will be asked to leave the association with "NO REFUND".
There is ZERO TOLERANCE for anyone who mistreats a volunteer or coaching staff, we are all doing the best we can to get our kids back on the ice safely.
Parents will need to be comfortable with dropping off players and not entering the building.  
There will be NO REFUNDS for the first session so please ensure you are comfortable with our format before confirming your registration and paying.  

Once our "Return to Play" plan is approved it will be sent out to everyone in the organization and posted on our website.
