COVID Protocols

Updated as of January 25th, 2022

Tournaments resume February 1st, 2022.

Vaccine Passports must be presented at all facilities for those aged 12+ (set to expire June 30th, 2022)

All facilities are operating at 50% spectator capacity (this does not affect the number of players/coaches/officials on the field of play)

As per the PHO and viaSPORT guidelines, all Team Officials (Coaches, Assistant Coaches, On-Ice Helpers, Safety persons and Team Managers) as well as scorekeepers and timekeepers, are required to show proof of full vaccination – no exceptions.

Team officials must be prepared to show proof of vaccination at any time to City and/or facility staff, viaSPORT, PCAHA or any other governing body that may require it.

By-Law officers have the arena facility schedules and will be doing periodic spot checks during peak times starting right away to confirm that user groups are completing the proof of vaccination where required.

Masks must be worn by patrons born in 2016 or earlier (5+) in all indoor public spaces throughout BC, regardless of vaccination status.


TEAM MANAGERS: Managers must submit the vaccination tracking form for all rostered members of their team. For games, your score and timekeepers must also be verified as having two doses of vaccine.
