FURTHER UPDATE: Revised changes to capacity limits for the Red-Control category
Submitted By Kal Deep on Fri 11 27, 20
The cities and townships of Waterloo Region have continued to work with local public health officials and the Province to clarify and interpret the provincial limits for recreation and sport in the Red-Control category of the provincial response framework.

As of today, the Province has provided updated guidance on the limits for recreation facilities and community centres. Across Waterloo Region, the following will now apply:

Each rink is permitted 10 participants (players) maximum. Coaches, trainers, employees and parents are not counted towards that maximum capacity count.

- The coaching/trainer allowance can include only those coaches/trainers already
          registered with the
 team. Substitute trainers are fine if someone is away or ill –
          please ensure township staff have this information in advance if they are doing
          the screening.

Only one parent / guardian is permitted per child. That one parent / guardian can
          accompany a child and essentially that means the parent / guardian can be a
          spectator.
No other spectators are allowed.


Masks for parents / guardians are mandatory, and physical distancing must be maintained.


Scrimmages and games are not permitted.

Arena details

The Schout rink will continue to enter at Door 25 and the coach will be screened by staff.

One parent/guardian per participant can enter the rink to tie skates and watch their child but the no re-entry rule will again be in place.

If parents choose NOT to come in but still need to help tie skates, there will be a few chairs outside each rink for that purpose.

Once inside, parents must remain in the rink to avoid co-mingling. The lobby will remain closed except as a through-way from the main arena doors to the Optimist arena.

An X will be placed along the boards in front of each of the 10 spaces allocated for kids to put on their skates and keep their belongings.

Parents entering with a child must remain within the area designated for their child including the X in front of that space along the boards.

Parents will have access to the designated dressing room washroom only.

If a parent requires accessible seating please speak to an arena operator.

The Optimist rink participants will continue to enter through the main arena doors and follow the new carpeting through the lobby to the rink entrance. The same rules apply for parents/guardians regarding spectating – the lobby is closed and parents must stay in their child’s chair area or on the X in front of their area.

All coaches are now required to be screened on the tablets by the Township staff screener upon entry. Players, parents and coaching stuff must still complete the Wilmot Girls Hockey screening form that is emailed before each ice time.
