We are pleased to announce that the Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) and the Town of Newmarket (TON) have confirmed our return to hockey on January 31st, 2022! Here are some key considerations for our reopening: 

1. Capacity is limited to 50% - while this won't affect most of our games or practices please only have family that need to attend come to the rink. 

2. Our dressing rooms will continue to support one team per room, but please consider: 
- Masks must be worn while preparing to play
- Dress to play at home as much as possible to limit time in the room

- Dressing rooms are an area the Town has the least ability to oversee so it is 
  vitally important for coaches/players/parents to act responsibly in these spaces

3. Masks must be worn at all times. Please understand that ice time could be cancelled if our players, coaches and/or families are not observing masking protocols. 

4. Proof of Vaccination must be presented in the form of a QR Code (does not need to be on a smart device, it can be printed on paper). 

5. The TON online health screening must be completed for each.  

Ray Twinney - Pad 1 - Plumbing Repairs

For those teams using Ray Twinney Complex, there is a plumbing issue that requires immediate attention. This work will begin at the end of January and will take roughly 5 weeks to complete.

While the facility is not closed there is no water service in the lobby side dressing rooms of Pad #1. A section of the hallway will also be closed and access to the dressing rooms will be via the walkway between the stands and the rink boards. There will be signage to direct patrons. While the dressing rooms will still be accessible to change in, all water services (faucet, sink, shower and toilet) will be offline. In order to minimize disruption, please ask your players to fill their water bottles at home.

There will be washrooms available around Pad #1 but it may be prudent to use washrooms, before arriving at Ray Twinney Complex. 

We look forward to seeing our athletes on the ice very soon!!! 

NMHA Executive.
