Jr Warriors Hockey Covid Policy

Thank you to everyone who has safely joined us this season. The board and club are dedicated to providing a safe, healthy and fun environment for all of our kids. As you may know, we have a number of protocols in place to mitigate and limit potential exposure for our children. This includes but is not limited to gearing up prior to arrival, masking off the ice, social distancing and maintaining a minimum ratio of players and coaches at each practice. 

As COVID-19 cases continue to rise we would like to clarify our quarantine policy for the Junior Warriors. We realize it can be confusing, as many teams are responsible for developing their own COVID-19 protocols. Please note this policy only applies to the Junior Warriors program, and does not reflect the exclusive policies of a specific rink or USA Hockey. The policy has been developed based on recommendations from the CDC and the policies in place with local schools. Do not assume this policy applies to other programs your child may be involved in. 

If a team member or coach has tested positive for COVID-19 and the individual DID participate in a practice, scrimmage or event during the infectious period (48 hours prior to onset of first symptom or confirmation of illness) the entire team willhave to quarantine for 14 days. It is the responsibility of you as the parent to notify your school regarding the potential exposure. 

If a team member or coach has tested positive for COVID-19 and the individual DID NOT participate in a practice, scrimmage or event during the infectious period (48 hours prior to onset of first symptom or confirmation of illness) the team member or coach must be quarantined for 14 days. If symptoms persist beyond 14 days, you may not return to play until you are medically cleared by your physician. 

If a team member or coach is exposed to a family member with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID the team member or coach must be quarantined for 14 days from the onset of the exposure. No test is required to return to play after the quarantine period has ended.

If a team member or coach is exposed to a community member  (i.e. exposure through school, house of worship, private event, etc.) with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID the team member or coach must be quarantined for 14 days from the onset of the exposure. No test is required to return to play after the quarantine period has ended.  

If your child has a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19, or has been exposed to someone with a suspected or confirmed case, please contact your coach and team manager as soon as possible. 

If you have any questions regarding our COVID-19 policies please contact our board member, Lorie McDonald, at lsuemcdonald76@gmail.com

We hope you and your loved ones remain in good health, and we look forward to seeing your child on the ice!
