Gearing up to Play
Submitted By Leanne Greenwood on Monday, September 14, 2020
We are facing new protocols in regards to the use of dressing rooms. It means that players are coming to the rink geared up or gearing up in the parking lot. Please remember that safety is more important that convenience.

Here are some tips to keep our players safe when gearing up....


Allow for more time to gear up at the rink.

When arriving at the rink, watch for cars with open tailgates which may be serving as a change room.


Be mindful of cars passing by when gearing up in the parking lot. Be especially careful at night when visibility is reduced.


Dress your player in base layers for the commute to the rink and put on the remaining gear when you arrive.


Do not wear hockey gear in a vehicle. In a collision, harnesses and seatbelts can only tighten to the hockey equipment, leaving extra space under the harness/seatbelt and may result in the child being ejected.


Under Ontario’s Highway Traffic Act, failing to ensure that children are properly secured will result in significant penalties.

 

Let's keep everyone safe, on and off of the ice!
