Red Control - Programming Update
Submitted By Tina Dawson on Sunday, November 22, 2020
NDMHA had created a plan for if/when Durham Region moved into the Red Zone and unfortunately that plan starts tomorrow.  We have been provided with information from the OHF, OMHA and OWHA as well as our local facilities and public health and these are the basis of our plan for Red – Control.  Our hope is to keep the kids on the ice skating in a safe manner until we can return to Orange, Yellow or Green.

The main changes in Red are:

·         Maximum 10 people in the facility (8 players on the ice, 1 coach, 1 trainer)

·         No spectators

·         No dressing rooms

·         No scrimmages or games – individual skill development only

To achieve the above guidelines, there will be no parents/guardians or spectators of any kind in the facility.  For players who need assistance with equipment, it all needs to be on before entering the arena.  A good pair of walking guards will be a necessity for those players who can not tie their own skates.  Dressing rooms will be closed, and the arenas will provide 10 chairs in the lobby for players and bench staff to put their skates on.  Every team will need a coach and trainer at each session.  Teams can have 8 players attend a session.  For teams with more than 8 on their team, players will rotate through the roster sitting 1 or 2 players as needed.  TeamSnap will need to have the attendance updated a minimum 24 hours in advance so that if a player who is supposed to attend is not going to be there, they can ask one of the players who is sitting that week.  This will be an equal rotation for everyone.  Ice times will only have 1 team on an hour of ice instead of 2.  So, for example where a 4-team division has 4 hours of ice each week, each team will now get one hour.  Everyone will rotate through the scheduled ice for their division.  

Fees will not change as the costs have been established for the season. Players will be on the ice half as much as in our regular return to play programming, but there are half the players on the ice as well, so the cost is the same.  Season fees are past due now and a reminder that the deadline to pay in 4 installments is Nov 29th.  Our ice contracts are in place short of a full shut down and ice has been purchased based on the original registration numbers.

We thank you for your continued support as Parents, Players and Volunteers to keep the kids skating.  It has, and continues to be, a very challenging season and one we hopefully will not have to repeat.  Our goal is to keep moving forward with player development and finalizing rosters so that when we can do so, we can move right into game play.
