Update re City of Waterloo Arena Capacity during Red-Control Stage
Submitted By Sandra Hanmer on Friday, November 27, 2020
Dear Ravens Families, 

The WGMHA has been working closely with the City of Waterloo and the OWHA and is pleased to let you know of the updated arena allowances for practices. These rules apply to all City of Waterloo arenas and CIF at the University of Waterloo.

City of Waterloo Arenas and CIF and the University of Waterloo: 

  • Max players on ice: 10 
  • Max staff members on ice + on bench (combined total):  4
    • Included in the staff must be at least 1 female, 1 trainer and 1 coach - as always 

As a reminder:

    • Associations and Teams in the Red (Control) Zone are NOT permitted to scrimmage or play modified games in a red zone or in any other zone in the province
    • Training sessions are permitted within the OWHA, facility and PHU requirements.
    • Maintain a physical distance of at least two metres from other persons at the facility
    • No contact or battle drills permitted

Coaches will be communicating with their players as to which ice times they are expected to attend.

Parents at the Arenas 

City of Waterloo: With respect to parents in the arena area, the City is permitting us to allow up to 1 parent/guardian per player. However, we are strongly encouraging as a means of reducing the number of people in one area during the Red-Control stage that, unless absolutely necessary, parents not stay during the practice. If you do come to the arena, wear a mask (unless exempt for medical reasons) and remain in the designated seating area. There are no in and out privileges. 

CIF at the University of Waterloo: The CIF arena has a maximum limit of 20 people. So if there are 14 on ice between coaches and players, their can be a maximum of 6 parents in the stands (socially distanced).

We acknowledge and appreciate the frustrations changing information brings. We will continue to provide current information to you as quickly as we can.  

Thank you for your continued support and adherence to the COVID-19 protocols. Please continue to practice physical distancing, wear a mask, wash your hands and limit the number of people you are in contact with.  

Be Kind, Be Safe, Stay Healthy, 


For the Kids! For the Game! For the Fun of it!
