Planning a safe return to hockey
Hockey Canada and its Members have worked diligently on a Return to Hockey plan based on direction from governments and public health authorities. As provinces and territories begin to reopen in the wake of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, Hockey Canada has prepared a number of resources to support and inform administrators, players, parents, coaches, safety people/trainers, officials and volunteers on how to navigate the challenges presented by COVID-19.
All administrators are encouraged to visit the Hockey Canada website and Member websites that are dedicated to providing Hockey Canada membership with the most up-to-date and important information concerning the safety protocols for Return to Hockey.
In addition to resources developed to support Members, hockey associations and leagues to prepare for a safe Return to Hockey, Hockey Canada has developed an online course to ensure hockey administrators have as much information as possible to prepare. For the 2020-21 hockey season, One member of each team is required to complete the Hockey University: Planning a Safe Return to Hockey course; but we encourage all volunteers to complete the training.
The program looks at some key information our membership needs to know to help to reduce the risk of COVID-19 in the hockey environment. Throughout this module we will refer to detailed information on specific prevention topics and encourage all to become familiar with the Public Health Authority guidelines and restrictions and the Hockey Canada Safety Guidelines.
