Important changes due to COVID-19:  You can see the full Return to Skating Guidelines published by Skate Canada here.

 

In Short:

  • Skaters and Coaches must arrive dressed ready to take the ice; we are able to use dressing rooms but must ensure THRC physical distancing protocols are maintained.

  • the club must conduct contact tracing -- this means every lesson the parent who brings the child must sign in

  • any previous Pre-Canskaters will need to be evaluated to ensure that they can participate safely in regular CanSkate. The child must be able to move on the ice and get up with-out help. Children who cannot be independent may be enrolled in TotSkate (see below).

  • Coaches and Program Assistants will not be able to hold/carry the children to help them skate. Coaches and PA's must use verbal cues when instructing as much as possible.

  • Skaters must be as physically distanced as much as possible 

  • Anyone participating in the activity (athlete, volunteer, official, etc.) should proactively and regularly check their health status (including taking their temperature and monitoring for any symptoms) in advance of arriving at the venue. Anyone due to participate who is feeling ill should not come to the venue.

  • If you or your child wishes, a mask or other face covering may be worn while on the ice.

  • ALL Registration will be ONLINE and email money transfers to the club are preferred.
