Coaches should wear masks while on the bench.
It is highly recommended that:
- Coaches, managers, and players who are eligible for vaccinations be vaccinated
- All persons wear masks in rinks, regardless of their vaccination status; coaches and players on the ice may remove masks at their discretion
- Those who are unvaccinated maintain three-to-six feet of social distancing at rinks
• Coaches, managers, and parents should read and familiarize themselves with the documents in the links below
• CCYHA will work with our local health department when a positive test is confirmed to ensure the proper individuals are notified and to facilitate appropriate contact tracing
• Players who test positive for COVID-19 must gain medical clearance before they are permitted to return to practices or contests, with an approval form sent to CCYHAINFO@gmail.com
