Dear Parents, Guardians, Players & Members,

On November 4th, all our members were sent our "Get your Game Face Ready" news article indicating that we were going to allow one guardian/parent to remain within the building for any age.  Unfortunately, in our attempt to keep all our members as up to date as possible on new developments, we were premature in announcing this.  Please accept my apologies on behalf of the NMHA.  We are working very hard to put our best skate forward and working through these new changes and challenges day by day.

For players in the U11 and below age category, ONE GUARDIAN per player will be permitted to stay onsite during ice time to assist their player. However, if you are a guardian in Tier 1 U11/U12 division (or above) or the Tier 2 division of U12/U13 (or above), you will not be able to stay at this time.

As per the Provincial guidelines which the Town must strictly follow, there will only be a maximum of 50 people permitted in the ice pad area at any given time. This includes all players, coaching staff, officials, timekeepers, etc. These will first be counted towards the 50 people maximum. Plus, all attending parents or guardians must complete the health screening questions or no entry will be granted. No exceptions will be permitted.

Please note that there are no seats or stands available for any Guardian. All Guardians must stand in the designated areas as determined by the Town. We are looking at the logistics and timing for potentially allowing parents/guardians of the other age groups to remain onsite. The NMHA will provide an update with regards to this sometime in the near future.

Hockey participants & attendees must still practice physical distancing (2m or 6 ft) while moving through the staging area. Participants will exit through a second emergency door. MASKS MUST BE WORN AT ALL TIMES
