Hi Everyone,

We hope your families are healthy and doing well. We are so excited to return to Burbank and kick off our hockey evaluations. The board is working so hard to ensure the safety of our kids, families and coaches so we can get back on the ice! These protocols are fluid, so keep in mind that we might need to change as we get further into the season, hopefully these changes will go in our favor and allow less restrictions for play.

The below protocols is what we have received so far. If there are any changes, we will keep you all informed. Please let us know if you have any questions. 

  • All participants must be free of any symptoms of COVID-19 for a period of 14 days or more and not have been in close contact with any person who has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
  • ALL participants must complete and sign the COVID-19 Waiver for RYH. Please bring to check-in on your first evaluation day.
  • Please do not arrive more than 15 minutes prior to ice time. You will check in out front and can enter the rink no earlier than 10 minutes prior to your scheduled time.
  • All players must be fully dressed in advance of arrival, with the exception of 
    skates and helmet. Locker rooms will remain closed.
  • A protective mask is required to be worn when entering and leaving the facility by all. Skaters can remove masks once they put on their helmets to go on the ice.
  • One guardian will be allowed per skater; Burbank is trying to limit the amount of people inside the rink.
  • Skaters should bring their own water bottle, which is clearly labeled with the skater’s name.
  • Burbank is clearly marked on the bleachers with spaces for skaters to tie skates and place their gear, as well as clearly marked spots for guardians. This is to enforce the strict social distancing policies. We ask that everyone comply with these rules so we can continue to use the facility.
  • Guardians cannot congregate at the glass to observe skaters. Please stick to the clearly marked spots on the bleachers.
  • You will be arriving through the front doors of Burbank, however skaters and guardians will leave through the back door to allow for the next group to arrive. Please once your skater is on the ice move their equipment bag to the bleachers at the rear of the building. Please stay with your child’s hockey bag.
  • Please leave the building within 10 minutes of the end of ice time. The expectation is that you will remove skates and helmet, but then exit the rink and continue the removal of gear outside. Please do not congregate and chat with other parents in the building.
  • Each child must have an updated USA Hockey registration number in order to step on the ice.
  • Even with all of the strict protocols in place, all risks associated with COVID-19 cannot be eliminated and you will therefore be assuming the risk of using the facility.

We want to thank you for your cooperation through these unknown times. We are excited to get the kids back in the rink as safely as possible. We look forward to seeing you all in the coming weeks!

Benches are off limits during practices

Please be aware that only coaches may go beyond the locker room area to access the benches. Parents and players' siblings cannot go beyond locker room 4 and should not be on the benches during practices. 

This is a safety issue as there are hazards in that area, including the Zamboni which cannot see someone that may be walking or running through that area.

Keep siblings in the stands, warm room or lobby when at the rink.

Thank you,

RYH Board of Directors
