General visitor guidelines

  • Must arrive no earlier than 10 minutes and depart immediately following competition
  • Spectators may not enter the spectator area until it has been properly sanitized
  • Maintain two meters separation, except those within the same household
  • Pick up garbage before leaving to assist staff with disinfecting
  • Celebratory gestures, such as high-fives and handshakes, are not permitted
  • Parents must always accompany young children
  • Anyone who is feeling unwell is asked not to enter the facility
  • Cheering and whistling should be minimized
  • User group members should contact their respective administrators for additional details regarding spectator attendance and protocols for additional mitigation measures

The City of Lloydminster has not mandated the use of facemasks. Anyone who wishes to wear one is encouraged to do so. Additional information is available at Lloydminster.ca/recreation.

Lloydminster Minor Hockey Association has the following response to the announcement:

Only a maximum of 30 people are allowed in the arena. Please note that the City of Lloydminster is going to allow 30 spectators on the North side and 30 spectators on the South side at the Civic Center. Physical Distancing must be followed. Please follow all signs and markers. Hand sanitizers are provided for use.

LMHA will allow ONE PARENT PER SKATER in the spectator area. We have a maximum of 24 skaters on the ice for physical distancing skates but up to 28 once cohorts are formed. Please understand that until evaluations are completed, if we reach capacity, room for evaluators takes priority over room for spectators. Please respect this process if you get asked to leave the spectator area to make room for evaluators.

As you are aware it took a long time to get to this point of having access to the facilities. All LMHA members will need to be diligent and follow all the guidelines to keep spectators in the facilities. If this process cannot be self-managed effectively, then LMHA runs the risk of having the spectator privilege revoked.

Please do your part to adhere to all rules / guidelines. Let’s keep the game of hockey safe for our players and our fans.
