After our long hockey "pause" (since March!!!), the ice is back and we are ready to play!

Unfortunately, with the pandemic, comes some new rules and regulations we will have to adjust to.

PLEASE read carefully through the information below. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the individuals listed for more information or clarification.

Make sure to complete the COVID-19 Contact Tracing Form prior to EVERY visit to the arena.

Keep in mind that this is a new and trying time for all of us, and the arena staff asks for your patience and help to make this the best season possible. Thank you!

It's great to be back!!!


Dominic Zappia Community Center - COVID-19 Guidelines

The arena will open to the designated group 10 minutes before the group is to enter the ice surface. If they arrive earlier, they will wait in the parking lot until they are let in by the coach or team manager.

Prior to arrival, a health screening will need to be completed for each individual entering the arena. Click here to complete this form prior to every arena visit.

Any player/coach/parent that are immune-compromised or have any symptoms or sickness should not participate in on-ice activity or be present at the arena at any time.

Any organization or individual using ice must make sure they have ample contact information in the event an issue were to arise. We ask family members to provide this to coaches if you aren't present while ice usage is happening.

Families are allowed 2 people per player/skater to enter the arena with the skater. Under current restrictions, please limit the number entering whenever possible.

Anyone when in the building/entering and exiting must wear face masks at all times. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS! Anyone not wearing a face covering will not be permitted to enter the facility. Social distancing is essential and will be enforced.

Players will enter the arena completely dressed minus skates, helmet, and gloves. Goalies will be allowed to put on leg pads inside.

Locker rooms and and warm room are closed to the public at this time. Once skaters enter the ice area, parents will be permitted to watch from the bleachers.

Players/coaches must bring their own drinking fluid and it should be marked with their name and be resealable, with no intention of refilling while at the arena.

We strongly suggest you use the restroom at home prior to leaving for the arena. We are trying to limit bathroom contact. If you use the restroom, please notify an arena attendant so disinfecting can be performed.

Players/coaches/parents will enter into the lobby where they will sit in a numbered area designated to that player and his/her parent. We highly discourage hockey bags in the arena. Please remain in your designated entry space until the coach permits the players to enter the ice.

When players enter the ice surface, all parents will take any additional belongings and enter the bleacher area where social distancing is ESSENTIAL. A limit of (2) people per player will be allowed in the designated area in bleachers while the player is on the ice. If a parent is not present, the player may take any additional belongings with them to the player bench. Clearing the entry area will allow time for staff/volunteers to disinfect the entry area prior to the next group's arrival. 

When the ice time is over, players will exit the ice at the Zamboni door and sit in our exit area in the same number seat they were designated in the lobby. Everyone will exit the building out the double doors down the hallway next to Locker Room B. We ask for your cooperation in exiting the building as quickly as possible and social distancing is always a must. 

There should be a coach/adult/arena attendant present until everyone has vacated the exiting area and it is ready for disinfecting. The area will then be disinfected and when finished the area will be vacant for at least 2 minutes to allow for the kill time of the disinfectant.

Players should not be waiting for rides home. Please be punctual when picking up your child as we can not allow them to wait in the building for rides at this time.
