We're Back....
The GLHA  is excited to announce our return to play as of Monday January 31st.  Our games and practices are commencing as of Tomorrow!   We appreciate the patience of our membership as we worked through details as it pertains to the rest of the season. We also recognize that the pause in programming will require a credit to families. This credit will be not be a standard fee returned, many teams were at different places in the season. This process will take some time to work through so please be patient. 

Ice schedulers have been busy working their magic across the city. Most of the schedules have been rebuilt so please check your teams schedule for updates(games and times).  
 
Our MLHU has announced some restrictions that all of us are asked to comply with.  We are excited to return to hockey but we need your support with these guidelines so our kids can continue to play hockey. We know our members will stand behind us and support this so our kids continue to play the sport we all love! 
 
Enclosed are the guidelines that are subject to change as the MHU changes it for the city of London.   
 
  • Overall building capacity is limited to 50%.

 

  • Spectator area is 50% or 500 people, whichever is lower.  Due to this limitation, ONE spectator per participant will be allowed.  It is in ESSENTIAL that spectators only enter at the time of the rental if they are not assisting the participant and to leave immediately after the rental. Please do not congregate in lobby or spectator areas to assist all of us in being compliant with the regulation.

 

  • There are no capacity limits on dressing rooms.

 

  • Entry into the arena for participants is limited to 30 minutes prior to their ice time.  We ask spectators to arrive at the time of the rental unless required to support participants.  All groups must exit the arena 15 minutes after their rental time expires. 

 

  • Masks must be worn at all times by spectators, and be worn by participants at all times prior to going to the ice surface.

 

  • Everyone 12 and over must provide proof of vaccination to enter the arena. An enhanced vaccine certificate with a QR code along with a valid ID is mandatory by provincial regulation. Proof of vaccination receipts and medical exemptions without the QR code will no longer be accepted. The QR code can be accessed digitally or by printing a paper copy. To download your digital or print QR code, please visit covid-19.ontario.ca/get-proof. Individuals can also visit their local library or can call the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900 to have their vaccine certificate mailed to them. You can also visit a Service Ontario centre to receive a printed copy.

 

  • Active screening is required for entry but we are no longer required to collect contact information for each individual who enters.
