Return to Ice Policy, Effective 1/4/2021

By the direction of the MDH, ice arenas and those who use those facilities must adhere to certain guidelines.  (COVID-19 Sports Practice Guidance for Youth and Adults)

 

Kristin Wallin, BPFSC President and BPSS Director, will continue to act as point person for implementation of these policies, as well as communication for all skaters and coaches who have exposure or positive test of CoVid. (breezypointfsc@gmail.com, (218) 831-2232)

 To be compliant, BPFSC and BPSS will adhere to the following policies and procedures:

  • Facemasks will be worn by everyone at all times! (includes everyone on the ice while skating, per executive order 20-103).

  • It is recommended that skaters have more than one mask in a plastic bag, so that they can switch when the first becomes damp.

  • Coaches and instructors will monitor exertion level of skaters and encourage water breaks as necessary.

  • Any coach, instructor, or skater who has a medical exemption to wearing a face mask must provide documentation from their medical provider.

  • No sports or equipment bags will be allowed into the facility (coaches may bring a small bag).

  • Locker Rooms Unavailable (per MSHSL Guidelines).

  • Athletes should arrive fully dressed, or as dressed as possible.

    • When skaters return to school (1/11/2021 for grades K-6), all backpacks will be placed in the coach’s car upon arrival at the rink.

    • Skates may be kept in the locker room, along with extra layers. 

    • Only one skater at a time may go into the locker room.

    • There will be no changing of clothing. 

    • Skates will be put on and removed in the stands.

    • Skates, clothing must be taken home after weekday skating is done and may be left there the following Sunday.

  • No spectators allowed in, except skaters age 8 and under may have one chaperone/parent enter to assist if needed.  Once the skater is on the ice we encourage the chaperone to leave the facility.

  • Strict Limits on number of participants (25 per pod).

  • Enter 5 minutes before ice activity.

  • Depart 5 minutes after ice activity.

  • Water Fountains Unavailable.

  • Concession Stand Unavailable.

Also, we will continue to adhere to the following policies:

  • No sharing of clothing or equipment.

  • Each skater should bring his or her own water bottle.

  • Hands should be washed or sanitized after entering and before leaving the building.

  • Social distancing of a minimum of six feet should be maintained at all times.

  • If the skater has any symptoms of CoVid, they should not come to practice.  

  • Any incidences of exposure or positive CoVid cases must be reported to the President/Director immediately.

  • The President/Director is responsible for communicating with the rink and any who came in contact with the infected coach or skater.

  • Return to practice will follow the guidelines of the medical practitioner and must be accompanied by paperwork.

Once tournaments/competitions resume Jan 14th, there may be some adjustments to the guidelines.  We will continue to follow the appropriate guidelines and update our members.
