Dear Cape Fear Warrior Family,

Below is Cape Fear Youth Hockey Association's (CFYHA) updated COVID Policy (as of 01/13/2022) for the 2021-2022 season.  As a USA Hockey sanctioned association, we abide by the rules and guidelines of USA Hockey, as well as the Carolina Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA).  CAHA's COVID guidance for this year is to follow all CDC, state/local laws and regulations.  We must also follow Fort Bragg's policies when at Cleland Ice Rink.  CFYHA will not impose any additional restrictions on these policies and regulations.


  •  As per our previous Covid Guideline Statement, we will follow the current CDC guidelines and Fort Bragg mandates. The CDC has issued new guidelines for Covid response. 

Covid Exposure

  • Unvaccinated = 5 days quarantine + 5 days strict mask wearing.
  • Vaccinated = no quarantine + 10 days strict mask wearing Best to test day 5 if exposed. Test if symptoms occur to rule out positive cases.
  • Positive Covid Test = 5 days isolation and as long as symptom free and fever free for 24 hours without medication, may then move to 5 days strict mask wearing.

Please see link below for full details:

  • As with any illness, they should not return to team-sanctioned events until they are symptom-free. 
  • Affected individuals must notify a CFYHA representative, such as a coach or board member, immediately. Upon CFYHA being notified of such an incident, a representative will inform those who had possible contact with the aforementioned individual, while maintaining confidentiality as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other applicable laws and regulations. 

Please refer to the CDC website for the latest on recognizing COVID-19 symptoms and guidelines for quarantine vs self-isolation. 

Just a reminder to all members: While we may not agree with the mandates set out, it is imperative that we follow them in order to not be shut down.  Again, Cape Fear is not imposing any additional mandates that are not already in place.  Should CAHA, Fort Bragg, and/or other state/local policies change, we will update in accordance with them. We want to have a full season of hockey while ensuring everyone's health and safety.
