Important Information On VAX PASS - Effective October 5th

October 4, 2021

As you are all very aware, new guidelines will take effect on October 5th regarding the Vax Pass and how it relates to sporting facilities. To make sure that all members of the Matrix Association are all on the same page I just wanted to highlight what I have confirmed with the facilities that we will be using over the next few weeks, which are APM and Rustico Rink.

Requirements are as follows:

  • All players participating in a sporting event aged 18 and under are not required to show proof of double vaccination when entering the facility. Again this only applies to those participating.
  • All spectators (including coaches, refs, timekeepers, and players that are not participating) aged 12 and over are required to show proof of double vaccination. For those over the age of 18, in addition to the proof of vaccination, they are also required to show a government-issued ID before entering the facility. Please note those aged 12-18 only have to show proof of double vaccination.
  • At this time, proof of double vaccinations along with a government-issued ID will be required by the facility EACH TIME you enter the facility. This might change over time, but this is the requirement at this time. Until notified, please have the necessary documentation EACH TIME you enter the facility.
  • The review of the proof of double vaccination at this time will be monitored by staff at the facilities, this will not be a requirement of the team. This is subject to change, but for now APM and Rustico will have staff in place to confirm the proof of double vaccination. If you are not able to meet the requirement of the staff person, then you will be asked to not enter the facility.
  • This is a stressful position for facility staff, so please respect the rules and help them out and be ready for the necessary documentation. They are working through the process to determine what works best, so be prepared for a changed setup over time. Remember, they did not make the rules, they are just implementing them, so let's be kind!!!
  • Contact Tracing will still be required for each ice time for each team, this list will need to include full first name, last name, and a telephone number for players and spectators. This needs to be handed into the facilities for record-keeping at the end of each ice time. This is the responsibility of each team.
  • This is the process that will be required at all sporting facilities across the island, so take the time to get your proof of vaccinations and have them readily available when coming to the rink, along with a piece of government-issued ID for those over the age of 18. Facility staff and team volunteers are not responsible to confirm your ID, please ensure to have the proper documentation to ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible.
  • Parents please remind players that masks are MANDATORY at all rinks, we are still seeing many players walking into the rink without masks. This is for the safety of everyone and we want to be able to continue to play hockey this season.

Again please remember these health policies set out by CPHO, the MHAs and the facilities are following the rules set out. We are all volunteers doing the best we can to make the process as simple as possible, but there are always going to be bumps along the way. Please let us continue to work together and respect the rules and the volunteers so that we can continue to go to the rink and watch our kids play hockey.
