Hello DMH Families,
We have received multiple inquiries asking who is responsible for kids that get dropped off at the door because parents or guardians cannot enter the facility. Drayton Minor Hockey executive discussed the health and safety of its participants.
As stated in the rules of operation, team officials are responsible for the safety of the participants both in the dressing room and on the ice. As such, they are responsible for supervising the dressing room AT ALL TIMES, both for practices and games.
Effectively immediately, Coaches will not be responsible for participants dropped off at the door. Coaches are not responsible to help kids get gear on or off, take them to the bathroom, pack up their gear, or escort them out of the arena. Please make arrangements if you cannot be in attendance for your child’s ice time for another parent or guardian designated by you, to assist your child in these activities.
U11 and below will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Guardians will need to be aged 12 and up, must be fully vaccinated, and must sign in at the same time as the participant. Another option is to make arrangements with a parent on the team that will agree to act as the Guardian while your child participates. They will be required to meet them at the door and sign the child in.
We are incredibly happy to see all the participants on the ice and we look forward to a great season ahead!
