COVID-19 - Return to Hockey
In our current environment, this is not a typical hockey season, and it will look different.
Hockey Calgary in conjunction with the Associations has developed a Return to Hockey plan. The plan that will ensure our athletes continue to grow both on and off the ice.
SW PRESIDENT Letter - August 12, 2020
All Member Associations MUST track all participants and interactions, maintaining records in a secure location for 30 days from completion of activity.
What happens if I answer ‘YES’?
- Any participant who answers YES to any of the questions must NOT attend or participate in the program and may not return until after a minimum 14-day quarantine from the activity.
Members and sanctioned partners are to report any COVID-19 cases as required by Alberta Health Services, Member, hockey association, league and facility. Hockey Calgary must be notified immediately after Alberta Health has been notified.
It will be the responsibility of the user (e.g. players, coaches and parents) to check the most currently listed Covid-19 protocols before arriving at the facility. Southwest Hockey will do it’s best to keep these links current, but please recognize that changes can occur by the facilities at any time.
SW Hockey expects that ALL players, coaches, and parents WILL respect and follow protocols set by each facility. Failure to follow protocols will lead to disciplinary measures taken by the Board of Directors.
Please be KIND, and RESPECT the facilities and their staff.
As per the City of Calgary Bylaw – masks are required to be worn by everyone prior to entering the facilities. Players are expected to wear a mask anytime they are not wearing their helmet.

The following waivers are required to be filled out once for the season. There is a waiver for the participant and another one for the adults. Adults required to fill out the form are for "any person who is volunteering and or spectating" We realize that not all facilities allow spectators at this time but we still require the tracking at the start of the season.
