Ringette Calgary is issuing the following Mask Requirements until September 30th, at which point this will be re-evaluated:
- PLAYERS – Players are required to wear masks upon entering the arena, and in dressing room area. Players should remove their masks only immediately prior to putting on their helmet and entering onto the ice surface.
- COACHES & BENCH STAFF – All coaches and team staff are required to wear a mask at all times while off the ice. This includes the dressing room area and the player’s bench. Coaches are permitted on ice without a mask when distancing from players, but must wear a mask on the ice when in close contact (inside 2 metres) of any player, coach, and/or Official.
- VOLUNTEERS – All volunteers and minor officials are required to wear a mask in and around the direct playing area, in the timekeeper/penalty box area, and when in close contact with any player, coach or official.
- OFFICIALS – All Officials are required to wear a mask upon entering the arena, and in the dressing room area. Officials should remove their masks only immediately prior to putting on their helmet and entering onto the ice surface.
- FANS (PARENTS) – Masks are required in the dressing room area, player’s bench, penalty boxes, and timekeeper’s box.
