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.
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 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.
You can will also find a link added to the Managers section and the Forms section
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.
Following Hockey Canada structure and our BC Health authorities, JDF has created the following phased in approach to return to hockey.

Regular hockey structure and format as in past years.
JDF MHA has created this phased in approach under the direction of Hockey Canada for a safe return to hockey. Strict adherence to these guidelines must be followed so we can progress through the stages. Dates are speculative with complete dependence on our provincial health authority’s direction as they monitor COVID-19 concerns. This action plan may be subject to change.
