The Latest on COVID-19

 
 

 

The length of our season is greatly impacted by the effort our hockey community puts into abiding by the new rules designed to keep us safe and slow the spread of COVID-19.


Rosemount Area Hockey Association (RAHA) is continuously monitoring state and local guidance as well as the Minnesota Hockey and USA Hockey guidelines regarding the COVID pandemic. At this time, we are planning on hockey this fall and winter. If circumstances change and it becomes impossible to practice and play in a safe environment and we are forced to cancel the season, members will be notified immediately.

RAHA formed a COVID-19 Preparedness Committee to develop a RAHA COVID-19 Plan for the season. The plan is developed using the latest guidance from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), USA Hockey and Minnesota Hockey, as well as local government and ice arena management.

It is critical that all families review and adhere to ALL conditions and limitations. The success of our RAHA season depends on our ability to manage COVID-19, we appreciate your patience and flexibility as we navigate hockey and COVID-19 together.

Per the Minnesota Hockey Guidelines and Rosemount Community Center policies, here is some important information to know before heading to the RCC:

  1. Skaters must enter the RCC from the UPPER ARENA ENTRANCE (DOOR #3); doors will remain locked until 10 minutes before your scheduled ice time.
  2. Skaters must exit the RCC from the LOWER ARENA DOORS (DOOR #4) within 10 minutes after the skate.
  3. Locker rooms are open, and bags are allowed in the arena, but skaters should come mostly dressed. There should never be more than 10 skaters per locker-room.
  4. Masks are required at all times inside the arena unless a skater is wearing his/her helmet.
  5. No spectators are allowed at practices for skaters over the age of 10.
  6. For COVID-19 tracing purposes, ALL SKATERS WILL BE REQUIRED TO CHECK-IN.

The RAHA Board understands that this season will present new challenges we’ve not seen before. We are committed to doing everything possible to ensure the safety of our players and hockey families throughout the season. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your Level Coordinators or the COVID-19 Coordinator (Kevin Bigalke).
