Per executive orders, USA Hockey Arena is now open and ready to start the hockey season. It is important for any parents, guests and players to know and follow all restrictions that are in place, and described below. We are asking for everyone's patience and respect as we re-open. Please remember, this is a fluid process, and one that we have never navigated before. If we follow all of the details below, we will be able to return safely and get back to playing hockey.
Anyone who enters USA Hockey Arena must be wearing a mask and has to fill out a Health-Check Form. The form is to be filled out and signed by any players, parents, coaches and employees each time you enter the rink. The form allows us to contact trace in any necessary situation. The form must be signed by both the participant and a legal guardian. Another parent or coach does not qualify to sign the form.
All players are allowed to enter the arena beginning 20 minutes prior to their scheduled ice time. They must leave the facility within 20 minutes of their ice time ending.
You will NOT be allowed to enter the arena if you do not have both the health-check filled out and wear a face covering. The coverings are to be worn at all times, including during participation in on-ice activities. If you do not comply with these mandates, you will be asked to leave the arena.
All guests are asked to park in the rear parking lot of the arena due to the Summer Drive-In's extended season through October 4. Players skating on 11U teams and younger may have one parent enter the arena with them. Players on 12U teams and older are to be dropped off by the bridge area and enter the building on their own. Parents are allowed into CJ's Brewing Company during the time of their children's practice. A parking diagram is shown to the side.
When in the building, we have new directional maps that all guests must follow when navigating the arena. The two pictures designate flow charts for upper and lower levels and are seen below.
Each team will get two locker rooms per session, with approximately 10 kids allowed in each room at a time. There will be no shower or bathroom availability inside the locker rooms, all restrooms will be in the main concourse areas.
For the time being, the concession stand will NOT be open. Parents are allowed to go to CJ's Brewing Company while their children are on the ice.

Thank you for your patience and understanding and we can't wait to see all of you soon!
