COVID-19 Information

While it is not possible to eliminate all risk of furthering the spread of COVID-19, SAIH is taking necessary precautions to comply with guidelines from public health authorities, such as the Centers for Disease Control and the Pennsylvania Department of Health, as well as AAU and PIRHL, to attempt to mitigate the risks to players, coaches, and their families. As knowledge regarding COVID-19 is constantly changing, SAIH reserves the right to adjust and implement precautionary methods as necessary to decrease the risk of exposure. Some precautionary steps that we are implementing are:

  1. Health screenings prior to any practice or game with participation in the being limited and/or prohibited where an individual displays positive responses or symptoms

    • Temperature check, questions regarding symptoms or potential exposure​

  2. Masks must be worn by all parties while at facilities.

    • Players may remove mask prior to entering the rink during practices and games. Masks must be worn at all other times

    • Coaches must wear masks at all times, including on the rink

  3. Require Players and Coaches to provide their own water bottles

  4. Encourage social distancing and promote healthy hygiene practices such as hand washing, using hand sanitizer, etc

  5. Arrive 5 minutes prior to practice, preferably already dressed with only needing to lace up skates

  6. Arrive no more than 15 minutes prior to games, preferably already dressed with only needing to lace up skates

    • Note: PIRHL will not start games early this season, they will all start on-time​

  7. No Post-Game handshakes - players will instead line up on Blue Lines and 'tap sticks'

Dear Schools, as we approach the beginning of our PIRHL season we need to address a few things. We are only permitted 25 inside at once per the state rules. That being said and how small we are asking for full cooperation from our schools and parents.

  • We ask that you ask your parents to please have their child dressed as much as possible before they arrive.

  • Everyone will be masked until the kids go onto the rink. Coaches must be masked on the rink at all times.

  • We will be cleaning in-between games, the locker rooms as well as the benches.

  • Our 1st game the kids will be in the locker rooms and exit the back doors. 2nd game they will lace up in the hallway and so on and so forth. I will have 2 employees here to help with the transition as much as possible.

  • When we are permitted more inside we will adjust our rules as needed.

  • We as well as everyone else just want the kids to play. so in doing so we will do our best as possible to make this happen!
