  • Male players with one supporting parent may use either locker room 2 or 5.   Please spread out between these two rooms to avoid overcrowding, wear facemasks unless exempt, and maintain social distancing.  
  • Female players or players who need exclusive use of a space in which to change with or without the support of a parent/carer may use one of the 3 small coach/umpires rooms.  There may be a need to wait and take turns to use these rooms.   Please come prepared with hand sanitizer and surface wipes to help keep everyone safe.   
  • Players may leave the locker room as soon as they are dressed and wait, socially distanced, for the session to begin.  nb: There is no requirement for face-masks or social distancing when on ice.   
  • Locker rooms 2 and 5 will be needed by players from another club after our session so please dress promptly and aim to leave locker rooms 2 and 5 by 17.45 hours.
