HeALTh & SAFETY uPDATE

 

The health and safety of our players and coaches is of utmost importance, and we will be adhering to the guidelines set forth by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, as well as MassHockey. These include:       

  • The facility is marked for one-way traffic throughout the lobby, concourse, hallways, and ice entrance/exit. Please enter on the right side (ramp) and exit on the left side (stairs) of the lobby.
  • Social distancing of 6ft will take place inside and outside of the building.
  • There are sanitizing stations and hand sanitizer placed throughout the facility.
  • Facility will be frequently cleaned all day long.
  • Occupancy limits will be enforced on the ice, in the stands, and in the restrooms.
  • Players must arrive to the rink dressed in gear. Skates should be the only thing left to put on upon arrival. We will have rubber down along the bottom rows of the stands running along the glass for changing & equipment.
  • Per the State of Massachusetts, participants, spectators, and employees must bring and wear a face mask when not participating in physical activities.
  • One parent/guardian will be permitted in the building per family and may only be in the designated viewing area.
  • Players must be picked up within 15-20 minutes of the end of camp.
  • Random touchless forehead temperature checks will be performed.
  • Players gloves should remain on at all times on the ice.
  • There can be no borrowing/sharing of equipment, please do bag check.
  • Players must bring their own water bottles (please have clearly marked with player name). Water fountains will be disabled. Bottled water will be for sale.
  • No sharing of food or drink.
  • Excessive coughing or sneezing will result in a temperature check and the possibility of being asked to leave the facility.
  • While not mandatory, full face shields may be worn as an extra layer of protection for your player.
  • Locker rooms are closed until we get clearance from state to open. 

With the limited amount of spectators, keep in mind you can subscribe to LiveBarn to watch your child on the ice. If you have any concerns, please reach out to us with questions.

Rules and regulations are changing regularly so the above could be relaxed or added to at any time. We will follow what we are told by the State and by MassHockey.


June 5th, 2020

 

Rodman Arena will officially reopen on Monday, June 29th. We will soon post new facility rules that will need to be followed when at Rodman Arena.

Spring programs that were delayed will now run for shortened 6 week sessions beginning the week of July 6th and running through the week of August 10th. We are in the process of reaching out to all registered participants with refund options.

Registered participants have first access to these new program dates. If space still remains they will be opened for additional registrations.


May 28th, 2020

 

Rodman Arena is planning to reopen the first week of July while following social distancing rules. The facility will be laid out for one way traffic, have floor and wall markings, sanitizing stations, limited to no use of locker rooms, and limited (and possibly none) spectators. Players will be required to bring their own water bottles and will be required to social distance. While not required, we recommend full face shields instead of cages on helmets. Full details on the reopening, and the precautions you can expect, will be posted in the near future.

It is still our hope to run all delayed programs from March and we are currently evaluating the dates that we have available to fit those programs in. We will reach out soon with new dates and/or refund options.


April 25th, 2020

 

It is our intention to start up all delayed programs again in June, however we are awaiting the next directive from the state (due in May). Once we receive the guidelines we will email all participants and update the website to reflect the new dates.


MARCH 31ST, 2020

 

Both the Olympic and NHL rinks have been removed for the time being. We expect to release all updated program dates and information on May 1st.


MARCH 16TH, 2020

 

To our valued friends and families of the Rodman Arena,

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic and in following with government guidelines we will be closing rink operations until April 6th.  All programs scheduled during our time of closure will be postponed to a later date.  As updates are made they will become available right here at www.rodmanarena.com/updates.

As this time brings so much fear and uncertainty of the unknown to everyone in our community we implore you to keep your families safe by taking all advice and precautions recommended by the CDC and our local and federal government.  Although it may be hard to see silver linings at this time, may we all find gratitude and simple pleasures in spending time with our loved ones.

We look forward to seeing everyone upon reopen so that we can get back to our lives as usual and the game of hockey we all love.
