    CHL Protocols for Covid - 19

    CHL Protocols for Covid - 19

    The Covid-19 pandemic has already had a significant impact on the upcoming youth hockey season, and will continue to do so throughout the fall. There are uncertainties at every turn related to tryouts, rink openings, start dates and cancellations among other issues. The Carolinas Hockey League recognizes the complexity of the issues. We realize that individual states, cities, and rinks may have more or less restrictive rules. These protocols do not supersede those regulations, but will serve to provide some consistency across all affiliates in an effort to fairly manage problems that may arise.

    I. Start of season - consider starting later and condensing schedule (fewer in season exhibitions to open more weekends). Pros - extend season start to a time where we hopefully have a better handle on the pandemic. Cons - a cancellation in a condensed time frame means more games cancelled.

    II. League schedule: Proposals:
    Increase number of league games - decrease exposures to different teams Minimize/eliminate crossover games in multi-division leagues.

    III. Game schedule format

    eliminate round robins to decrease number of teams in rink.

    IV. Game attendance

    No fans in stands.

    V. Locker rooms - essential personnel only. If players need assistance with dressing, should be done at home or in more open areas such as lobby.

    VI. Reporting of Covid positives in a team - Affected team to immediately notify Commissioner for that division, scheduled opponents, and any teams played in previous 14 days.

    VII. Game cancellations due to Covid - follow inclement weather policy. Reschedule if possible, if not possible games are recorded as a tie.

    IX: Ice time expense for cancellations due to Covid - propose using inclement weather fund for partial reimbursement. Understand that a large number of cancellations will exceed capacity of fund. Applications for reimbursement submitted at conclusion of season. A committee will review applications and distribute funds fairly.

    X. Season ending tournaments - do we have them, do we change format, do we postpone to later in season, etc?
