      Spectators must distance of at least six feet and must be maintained at all times at events

      Arena spectators are limited to no more than two spectators per player. Interscholastic events can limit the number of spectators to their league standards for scheduled practices and games

      Visitors must follow all signs throughout the arena, consistent with DOH COVID-19 guidelines

      Coaches must wear a face mask including on ice except when speaking or demonstrating drills

      Teams will enter and exit the building following a one-way traffic pattern designated by signage

      The Syracuse Youth Hockey Association will clean and disinfect all hallway benches and locker rooms after each team uses them. In addition, our association will regularly disinfect areas that are frequented by visitors to the rink. Sanitizing stations are available throughout the rink.

      Coaches and Managers Responsibilities:

      Our coaches and managers will have the most direct contact with players and families throughout the season. Therefore, we are asking all coaches and managers to help ensure team compliance with COVID-19 health screening and safety policies among their teams. If Syracuse Blazers players and families do not comply with rink policies and good COVID-19 risk mitigation practices, then they may be jeopardizing the safety of our organization’s participants and potentially the completion of a full season of hockey.

      Managing Arena Positive Cases of COVID-19:

      While we are all taking measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we have to expect cases to occur among players or family members within the Syracuse Youth Hockey organization and Coliseum. If a player tests positive for COVID-19, we encourage the family to contact High School Hockey Rink Rep Sean Brown the Covid-19 Risk Mitigation Designee at

      ( sbrown23@twcny.rr.com ) 315-447-0285

      or Blazers President Tony Bird

      ( blazers9612@yahoo.com ) 315-559-3366
