Wisconsin Amateur Hockey Association, Inc.

 

January 19, 2021

 

Dear Association Leadership:

 

Clarifications from the WAHA Board of Directors as of 1/17/21

 

Masking Requirements: The WAHA Board of Directors has extended the masking requirements for all coaches, players and officials for all practices and games until the end of the 2020-2021 playing season.

 

State Tournament Coach Masking Requirements: The WAHA Board of Directors has passed a motion that for the 2020-2021 State Tournaments, any coach refusing to properly wear a mask while on the bench will be required to leave the building and may not return to coach until properly masked. The on-site State Tournament Director will be required to enforce this rule.

 

Competition in Wisconsin with teams from bordering States:

Illinois: Tier I Games in Wisconsin between Tier I teams from Wisconsin and Illinois are permitted. Tier II Games in Wisconsin between Tier II teams from Wisconsin and Illinois are prohibited. (NOTE: At both Tier I and Tier II, this is the rule that has been in effect since Dec. 20, 2020.)

Minnesota:  Minnesota teams are now permitted to play games in Wisconsin, but those teams must have the permission of their Minnesota District Director for this travel, and Minnesota Hockey discourages this travel.

Michigan: Michigan Amateur Hockey (MAHA) permits Michigan teams to play in Wisconsin, but does not allow Michigan teams to play each other in Wisconsin.

 

 

Thank you,

 

WAHA Board of Directors

NEW COVID GUIDELINES

11/20/2020, 4:30pm CST
By Rob Haswell

PLEASE CHECK EMAIL AND COVID PAGE

Last night WAHA issued additional COVID policies that OYHA will need to comply with. This post will fill you in on what those additional requirements are and the action steps needed by you to ensure we can keep our players on the ice. 

You can view the WAHA letter here.

 

1. Masks are now a requirement at all times (including on ice). This includes all spectators, managers, and coaches. Certain bubbles with a spit guard are acceptable. You can find a list of those here.

 

For games - referees can run the clock, while play is stopped until compliance is in place by spectators, coaches, and players. Play can resume once a face covering is worn or the person leaves the building. Coaches and managers are responsible for talking to the individual who is not in compliance.

 

For practice - consequences for those who fail to adhere to COVID policies, may include loss of games, practices and other team activities. A generous donor has provided disposable masks for use in the event a player forgets their own. If a player, coach, or spectator refuses to wear a mask, they will be asked to leave the rink. 

If the purchase of a mask or bubble is a hardship for a family we do have some scholarship funds available to help offset costs to families. Please contact Caitie Bowers for additional information. 

 

2. Contact Tracing - In addition to information on our players and coaches we also need to gather spectator information and the information on visiting teams. A google form link has been set-up to collect this information for this weekend. This process may change in the future. QR codes will also be located around the rink. Contact Tracing Link - https://forms.gle/5XpkseB7ZWYqjrQz8

 

3. Rink Flow - Please ensure that your players  are following our rink flow procedures. For games please remember spectators should not enter the rink until 5 minutes before game time. There should be NO congregation in the lobby. 

Flow diagrams can be found here

 

4. COVID Monitors - Our coaches and managers need your help. COVID Monitors will be responsible for making sure that players/spectators are wearing their masks, social distancing, spectators are filling out COVID tracking, and following other rink procedures. You would need to be willing to complete the background check and Safesport to fill this role (costs are reimbursed by OYHA). COVID Monitors will be allowed to stay in the rink for practice provided a face covering is worn and social distancing is observed. Please let your coach or manager know if you are interested in this role.  

 

If you have any other questions or suggestions on how we can best implement our protocols - please let Caitie Bowers know. This is a season like no other - but we are thankful to have our players on the ice and your help in keeping them playing is appreciated.
