Message to Ravens Families re Parents/Guardians/Spectators at Ravens Games
Submitted By Sandra Hanmer on Saturday, October 17, 2020
Questions regarding number of parents/guardians/spectators at Ravens home and away games have been raised. Please refer to the response below. 

Dear Ravens Families,

It’s great to see modified game play starting- I know everyone is excited to be playing.

Thank you to everyone for working with  adjusting to  and complying with the protocols we must follow to keep our sport going during these unprecedented circumstances. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.

One clarification we are making concerns Coaching staff and second parent/guardian/spectator attending games.

For game play only. If one parent/guardian is on the bench (Coach or trainer), a second parent/guardian/spectator is permitted to attend the game as long as the total number of people in the arena isn’t over the maximum number of people permitted at the facility.

Some of the arenas have a max of 50 people and some are at 48 people. These  Maximums are provincial orders and we must comply with them.

If the arena maximum number is going to be exceeded, the second parent/guardian/spectator will be asked to leave.

When going to out of the City of Waterloo arenas, please check the arena limits before you travel. Arena configurations and protocols will be sent to the coaches and posted on the Ravens website over the next couple of days.

Coaches are responsible for ensuring that their teams comply with the numbers permitted for both home and away games.

Some of you may be thinking how is this fair? Please remember as a parents/guardians not on the Coaching staff you are  able to rotate who goes to watch your daughter(s) play at both practices and games.  Coaching staff are not able to do this.

We feel this clarification does make it fairer to all families under the current circumstances.

Thank you again for your continued cooperation and compliance with the protocols and regulations. Working together we can keep the Ravens on the ice.

Be Kind, Be Safe, Stay Healthy,


Sandra Hanmer

President, WGMHA
