Sport/Activity Return to Play Details
*Note: Our Breakfast Club Hockey Skills Program is designed and delivered in-house and independent from Hockey Manitoba programs. We have however referred to sport specific COVID-19 protocol from the Provincial Sport Organization to guide us in the safe delivery of the City of Selkirk on-ice programs.
Hockey Manitoba is currently in phase 2 of a three phase Return to Play Plan. As such, on-ice skill development (non-contact) and drills are permitted.
The activity must always comply with the physical distancing, cleaning, sanitizing measures and recommendations issued by federal, provincial, and municipal government authorities, including the arrival, time spent on site and departure of skaters.
Group sizes have been determined based on consultation with the Regional Provincial Health Inspector. Group sizes are limited to ensure that physical distancing measures can be followed.

- Limit instructor/skater contact; instructors should not physically help students up unless the student in unable to get up on their own.
- Where sport specific training cannot maintain the physical distancing requirement of 2 meters that contact must be kept between participants (including skater to skater, instructor to skater, etc…) to a maximum of 15 cumulative minutes per session.
- Ensure that skaters stagger entrance and exit the ice surface to avoid congestion traveling from and to the dressing room.
