Safety Standards

MaxPro Hockey Club is pleased to welcome program participants back to the rink to participate in permitted activities. As always, safety is our primary priority. In order to continue providing the safest environment for our players, families, and staff, we have put new policies into place. Please note that this is a fluid situation and requirements and options may change at any time with little to no prior notice. We are doing our best to keep you apprised of any progress and we ask that you check our “Safety Standards” section of our website for updates, as well as following guidance from the city and state. Revised guidelines will be posted here with the date of the most recent revision and should be referenced often.

It is the responsibility of participants to stay home if they are exhibiting any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 in the last fourteen days. Signs and symptoms include, but are not limited to fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and/or diarrhea. A current list of symptoms is available from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Any participant that develops symptoms during training will be removed and instructed to go home. Any participant who does not participate in the program due to COVID-19 concerns will not be permitted to return to the Program until they can produce a subsequent negative test. High risk individuals are discouraged from attending or participating in the Program. Any player exposed to a COVID-19 positive person must inform the club of the exposure and is not permitted to participate in the Program until a negative test result is produced. Any player in direct contact with a COVID-19 positive person may not return to the Program until fourteen (14) days after the last date of exposure to the COVID-19 positive person, even if a negative COVID-19 test result is produced.

Participants are required to take their temperature every day before arriving for any program. Participating in the program is an attestation that participant has taken his/her/their temperature that day and that it was less than 100 degrees Fahrenheit. MaxPro reserves the right to check participant temperatures but this shall not be the primary means of testing. Participant may be asked to leave even if their temperature is less than 100 degrees Fahrenheit if in the sole discretion of MaxPro participant is displaying other symptoms.

Please note that MaxPro does not own or operate the facilities where the programs take place. Accordingly, it is the responsibility of the owner and/or operator of said facilities to comply with all safety requirements.

WHEN DO WE NEED TO WEAR A MASK?

As of May 29, 2021, the Commonwealth’s face covering order for Youth Sports was rescinded. While face coverings are no longer required to be worn by participants, coaches, volunteers, and other staff, face covering requirements vary facility to facility.

HOW WILL GROUPS BE SAFELY SEPARATED WHILE PARTICIPATING IN THE PROGRAM?

Training groups will be limited on the ice to no more than the maximum number of players permitted to participate consistent with state guidelines. 

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19 OR ANOTHER INFECTIOUS COMMUNICABLE DISEASE?

Please contact us immediately at marketing@maxprohockey.com addressed to Carly Gratchev. We will proceed to notify all program participants without identifying the participant who tested positive. COVID-19 players will not be permitted at Programs. Individuals that make close contact with a COVID-19 positive individual must quarantine before returning to the Program. 

WHAT HAPPENS IF SOMEONE IN MY PROGRAM TESTS POSITIVE FOR COVID-19 OR ANOTHER INFECTIOUS COMMUNICABLE DISEASE?

We have all participants’ contact information on file. In the event that a participant tests positive we will promptly notify all program participants. All close contacts are required to quarantine.

ARE LOCKER ROOMS AND REST ROOMS AVAILABLE?

Locker rooms policies vary facility to facility. Occupancy limits for bathrooms vary facility to facility.

ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING

1. Should participants need to use the benches, a distance of 6 feet apart should be maintained at all times.

2. High-fiving, fist bumps, and other forms of social contact will not be permitted.

3. Personal equipment must not be shared and must be dedicated to an individual player for the entire season.

4. Sharing of equipment provided by the organization will be minimized. All equipment provided by the organization will be cleaned and disinfected after each training session.

5. Sharing of food and drinks will not be permitted. Each participant is responsible for providing their own water bottle. The organization will not be providing water bottles.

6. Participants and coaches should practice proper hand washing and sanitizing before and after each training session.
