Frequently Asked Questions [Youth Summer Camps]

What kind of face coverings are required in order to participate?

Players are required to wear a cloth face covering while waiting for ice times, queuing in line for coaches, and during anytime that 6 feet of social distancing space cannot be maintained.  Anytime a player is not on the ice with a helmet secured, they should be wearing a mask unless instructed by a coach for dryland activities that are socially distanced.  

Coaches and volunteers who are in the presence of players are required to wear a face covering at all times.
