the upcoming 2021-2022 Lynx hockey season.
We have been working with
OWHA, the City of Kawartha Lakes and the HKPR Health Unit.
provided us with important information that we would like to share with you.
will continue to update you as new information and updates become available.
Please take time to read through all of the information and attached documents. We ask for your patience and understanding as we navigate through the continuous updates and changes, as the situation continues to evolve. We are sure that you have many questions and as an association we do to. Please be patient. The Lindsay Lynx Association is completely run by volunteers and we are working hard to navigate and communicate information and updates from OWHA, the CKL and HKPR Health Unit.
Important to note: The decisions are made by the Province, OWHA and City of Kawartha Lakes. We as Lindsay Lynx GHA are obligated to follow the rules and regulations provided and adhere to the strictest of all the guidelines.
The City of Kawartha Lakes provides our children a facility in which to play in and the OWHA provides us the ability to conduct programming with other centres, along with many other items.
For complete OWHA policy please visit their website at www.owha.on.ca For information on City of Kawartha Lakes Ice use protocols (see attached)
As of September 22nd all persons (including spectators) entering the arena over the age of 12
will be required to prove their vaccination status to the Lindsay Lynx GHA before entering the arena as per the City of Kawartha Lakes. This means that the player will have to have had two vaccines plus the 14 day period after the second shot.
Many of the existing requirements by the OWHA and City of Kawartha Lakes are the same as last year:
1) contact tracing
3) directional entering and exiting the building
4) social distancing (including spectators in the stands)
5) limited amount of players, coaches, and spectators (2 per player) allowed in the facility
The City of Kawartha Lakes will also be taking a firm stance on offending organizations. Please see the Ice Use Protocols and the repercussions for organizations who do not adhere to the guidelines. We ask your assistance and adherence to the protocols. As an association, we do not want to be in the position where our ice privileges have been revoked and we can no longer provide programming to the players.
We, as an association, are requesting that all parents and players have patience, and we thank you for your cooperation going forward. There may be changes to the policies and guidelines as the season progresses so please check the website frequently. We as the Lynx Association will work diligently to communicate any changes or updates to you as soon as they come available.
