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​
