WGSC AND CIVIC CENTER SPECTATOR PROTOCOLS
Submitted By Sandra Gagne on Thursday, September 10, 2020
The Wayne Gretzky Sports Center (and the Civic Center as of Oct. 1 2020) have been approved to move forward in allowing spectators into the rink areas of the facility.   It is expected that the user groups will be responsible for monitoring and managing the total number of people in their designated rinks in an effort to maintain the maximum of 50 people.  

  • At this time, dressing rooms will remain closed and benches and chairs will be set up for participants to use  ONLY.   The safety of all participants, Coaches, Trainers, Referees, Spectators and staff is our number one priority.
  • NO HOCKEY BAGS ALLOWED IN ARENA - YOU MAY CARRY SKATES/HELMETS/GLOVES IN TO ARENA
    Following these guidelines is of utmost priority.

Spectators Guidelines:

  • Only 50 people in total are permitted in each rink during each ice rental. This includes: participants on the ice, Coaches, Trainers, Referees, and Spectators.

  • Spectators are NOT permitted to stay in the lobby/corridor area.  They must proceed to the assigned rink and sit in the designated spectator area.

  • All spectators must wear masks before entering the Facility and while in the facility at all times.

  • All spectators must practice social distancing of 2 metres or 6 feet.

  • NO HOCKEY BAGS ALLOWED - Carry necessary equipment into the arena.  The spectator will help the participant with tying up their skates and putting on their helmet.  The spectator must be wearing their mask at all times.

  • Once the participant’s equipment is on safely, the spectator will progress to the designated spectator area.  The spectator must wear their mask at all times and must practice social distancing of 2 meters or 6 feet.
  • Once the ice session is complete, the spectator will help the participant remove their skates and helmet and have the participant put their mask back on before leaving the rink area.  The spectators and participants will follow the signage and exit the Facility immediately.  No loitering will be permitted.

Organizations (User Group) will be responsible for:

  • Screening all players, coaches, trainers, and spectators before entering the Facility. A parent Ambassador can be chosen to assist with this process but only after completing the facility training.
  • Ensuring the players, coaches, trainers and spectators are permitted in the building and confirm the number of people does not exceed 50.  ONLY spectators that are affiliated with the group on the ice will be permitted in the Facility.
  • Ensuring everyone entering the building is wearing a mask.
  • Coaches, trainers, participants and spectators will follow all signage posted and continue to the assigned rink. Congregating in the lobby/hallway is NOT allowed.
  • Any organization/user group found not following the 50 person limit will risk losing their ice privileges.
