The main updates are the language around “community”, specifically that we have some players from outside of Port Alberni including Ucluelet and Tofino, and Oceanside. We also have a female team that practices here as well, and those players come together from other towns. These players ARE considered part of our COMMUNITY and as such, are able to continue practice with their respective teams here.
Also, updated is the mask policy – this is a facility as well as PHO directive. Masks must continue to be worn from entry to exit. The EXCEPTION is:
- Players may remove their masks on the field of play which ONLY includes the ice surface, penalty box and bench
- Coaches may ONLY remove their masks on the ice when they are able to physically distance from the players and other coaches
