ALLIANCE HOCKEY - COVID VACCINE POLICY STATEMENT

ALLIANCE Hockey will require proof of COVID-19 immunization for all vaccine eligible participants

Eligible participants will require proof of having received their first dose by SEPTEMBER 17, 2021 and be fully vaccinated by OCTOBER 31, 2021.

 

To comply with the above noted Policy Statement, proof of vaccination must be presented to a Waterloo Minor Hockey Association Authorized Delegate, as follows:

1. September 15, 16 and 17th: a WMHA table will be set up outside of RIM Park between 4-8pm for Participants entering the rink for AAA and AA tryouts, to present proof of vaccination.

2. Please bring BOTH of the following as proof of vaccination for your Player and/or yourself in the case of Coaches, Trainers or other Team Officials:

  1. A digital or physical Dose Administration Receipt; AND
