My my My my
Hockey This Weekend!

Attention Falcons, Fans, and Fams!

We had a great second start to hockey last weekend, and we have lots of games planned going forward.  In order to ensure that everyone can keep playing, we need to be extra careful to follow the current Mass Hockey guidelines.  Here are a few highlights: 

  • Enter the rink as close to gametime as possible. If games are running late, please wait outside or in your car until the Zamboni is making new ice.  More than two teams of parents and players in a rink is too many right now.  Also, remember to come as dressed as you can as all bags are not allowed in the rink.
  • Each rink has its own set of requirements of players and spectators. In some, spectators are not allowed at all, while others may permit two per player.  It is up to each of us to know the rules where we are playing.  The Valley Hockey League and the Middlesex Yankee Conference have updated lists of rinks and protocols; please consult these before heading out to the game.   
  • Mask up.  That means players and spectators, all the time.
  • Players are spaced out on the ice, but they need to maintain distance on the benches, as well, so please remind your players to stay spaced out on the benches.  During the excitement of the game its so easy for kids to forget this. If the benches are not large enough for the teams, rinks should have chairs set up behind the benches for overflow.  Though coaches will watch out for spacing, pre-game reminders from parents are will definitely help.  
  • Most importantly, if you see something that concerns you, please let the local rink management know, and advise other families. Massachusetts has been thoughtful about setting up these new protocols, but the rules only work when they are followed. At Simoni and CYH games, please let us know if you see anything that doesn't seem right, so we can pass it on to rink management.  You can reach us anytime at

We know this is challenging season, and we're so grateful for the good efforts of our Falcons and families.  Thanks to everyone who is doing their best to keep hockey going.

SEE YOU (safely-distanced and wearing a mask) AT THE RINK!
