COVID Action Plan





Juan de Fuca Minor Hockey Association plans to open our season this year, but to do this safely we would like to invite all of our families to be part of the solution so that we can have a fun and full season.

Below is documentation of guidelines for families to follow when returning to the rinks this winter.


Additionally, JDFMHA has put together its own Return to Play Plan, this document contains important information on:

  • Transition Measures / Requirements
  • JDFMHA Facility- Specific Requirements
  • Responsibilities of all participants
  • Protocols
  • Tools
  • Failure To Comply

Please familiarize yourself with this Return to Play Plan before attending the rinks this season. All parents or participants must be aware of the protocols and consequences if there is a failure to comply.


Each participant will be required to complete the associated JDFMHA Return to Play Agreement (For each player)

Divisional Managers will ensure that all Return to Play Agreements are up to date for each player, this form is there so that each Manager can indicate that the players and staff on their team have been made aware of the rules governing player safety. Ultimately the role of the coaches, managers and team safety will be to ensure that all players can return to each practice in as clean an environment as possible. These policies fall in line with the governing policies for current COVID 19 response, as set out by the BC Government and Health Authority.

This form shall be filled out and attached for each player and updated each year as necessary.


This year we have implemented an attendance sheet that must be completed by Team Managers electronically, although we understand that sometimes electronics do fail us. A printable copy of the form can be found here, this should be then uploaded at the earliest convenience to the website.

What to do if your player has been ill?

As many parents know, it is nearly impossible to go to school or go through a flu season without somebody getting sick. Although we are physical distancing as much as possible there is still the potential for a player to become ill. If a player does become ill this season the form below shall be filled out and filed with the team Manager prior to returning to play.
