Panther Hockey

January 4th with new mandates in place

Happy New Year! With the change in the year, there is also a change to our COVID preparedness plan. Please review the attached plan with the addendum of new rules at the end of the document. Please educate your players on the new rules in place. Remember to self-screen prior to coming to the rink and stay home if you are not feeling well.

Practice will resume on January 4th with new mandates in place. Cloth face coverings must be worn by everyone inside the rink at all times. This now includes on-ice practice and game play. Please check out the Minnesota Hockey website for details and guidance on what is approved for face coverings for on-ice activity. There will be no locker room use for youth hockey. Please use the benches and bleachers inside the arena to put on remaining gear. Please remind your players to follow social distancing guidelines. No equipment bags are allowed in the facility with the exception of goalies. All players are to arrive to the rink fully dressed with the exception of skates, helmet, and gloves. Goalies are allowed to arrive half dressed. Players must not arrive to the rink prior to 10 minutes before the start of practice. They must exit the rink no later than 10 minutes after the end of their ice time. No spectators, to include practice, will be allowed in the facility for Phase 4 with the exception of Mite/8u/6u. Only one parent/adult will be allowed and must mask and follow social distancing. There will be no dryland activities or open hockey/skate at this time. Skating up/down is not recommended at this time.


There will be more guidance to come regarding game play prior to the start on January 14th as we are waiting for those guidelines to be released. This is a moving target and we anticipate changes as we go through this season. If you have any questions, please reach out to your manager, coach, or board member. We understand that this is a frustrating time and things might not always make sense. Know that we are doing what is needed to get our kids back out on the ice. Please communicate any changes to your players participation to your manager. We appreciate your patience and understanding through all of this.


Thank you,

PRAHA Board of Directors
