COVID-19 Response & Policies
All indoor programing is suspended until the restrictions are lifted and the indoor arenas open.
Skate Canada is developing national policies and guidelines for clubs to follow to protect the skaters, their families and coaches.
We are closely following the development of Skate Canada's policies and the Government of Alberta regulations.
For current Skate Canada Policies, please visit Skate Canada COVID-19 Response.

Club Policies and Responses - Phase 2
It is important to note that Skate Canada is in their Phase 2 of relaunch. These policies are subject to change based on the ever evolving nature of COVID-19.
The club will be communicating with skaters and their families primarily through email. Please ensure that you are subscribed to the email list.
Hygiene: Proper hygiene can reduce the risk of infection and spreading the infection to others.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water is not available.
- Cover a cough or sneeze with your arm or a tissue and dispose of the tissue as soon as possible in a waste basket. Wash your hands after handling the tissue.
- Avoid touching your eyes, mouths and nose with unwashed hands.
If any symptoms arise, please stay at home and do not attend your scheduled session. Please contact your physician or public health authorities and follow their instructions.
If returning home from travelling outside of Canada, skaters must not attend their scheduled lesson for a 14 days during the mandatory quarantine time.
According to the new City of Edmonton bylaw, masks are MANDATORY in all City of Edmonton facilities with some exceptions. For more information, check here. To facilitate with face mask protocol, the club will be providing one washable face mask per registrant. Skate Canada's recommendations are as follows:
- Learn-to-Skate Programs: Face masks are required for all Learn-to-Skate program participants. Coaches will be wearing a face shield and/or a face mask when delivering the Learn-to-Skate programming. This includes CanSkate, Parent & Tot and low level CanPower sessions.
- StarSkate Programs: Face masks are not recommended due to the high intensity nature of this program but may be worn if desired.
- Coaches & Program Assistants: Coaches will be wearing a face mask, with the option of wearing a face shield on top when coaching on or off the ice surface within the arena.
- Parents: Face masks are required at all times possible.
Physical distancing will be maintained whenever possible, however we recognize that this is not feasible for all programs. When physical distancing is not possible, participants and coaches will be required to wear a mask and an optional face shield.
All Federation coaches and program assistants will be provided with training on cleaning protocols and program delivery methods in order to comply with Skate Canada's and the Government of Alberta's protocols.
Cleaning protocols will be put into place between each session to protect our skaters, their families and our coaches. These cleaning protocols may include:
- Wiping down high traffic areas such as board tops, board doors and board benches
- Making hand sanitizer available between and during sessions
Session times have been adjusted to allow for cleaning and skaters to leave/enter the ice at staggered times.
In order to facility cleaning protocols, skaters are asked to come to the arena dressed in their skating clothes and carrying as few personal items as possible. If possible, skates should be put on outside of the arena with skating bags left in the vehicle. If this is not possible, limited dressing room space will be available with mandatory social distancing requirements.
All skaters are required to complete the Skate Canada Risk Waiver before the first day of skating. In addition to the waiver, a mandatory Health Screening must be completed before each scheduled session.
Contract tracing logs will be completed and maintained through the skating season for each scheduled session. In order to facility the mandatory health screen and contact tracing logs, each skater must arrive 15 minutes before their scheduled ice time.
Skaters will also be required to complete a health screening before skating. The health screening will be available digitally or in hard copy. Please ensure that you visit the check-in desk prior to going to the ice surface.
