Update Spectator capacity Limits Guidelines Policy
Submitted By Webmaster on Tuesday, October 27, 2020
During a video conference call with the City of Kingston, it was brought to our attention that our spectator policy was not inline with our Public Health Unit and City guidelines. We have made recent changes to our spectator policy, with the help from our friends at the Church Athletic League and we have adopted the same policy as them.

Each Association is responsible for their ice time capacity and we are asking teams and parents to help monitor and keep this under control. Please see below on how we are trying to stay within our capacity limits. 

The City of Kingston is moving away from what they call the information stage to the enforcing stage, meaning teams and/or families that continue to not adhere to the rules will be suspended. KAMHA is in total support with the City of Kingston. Our Public Health Unit has sent a memo that spot checks will occur in the coming weeks. 


General Spectator Rules

  • Self Screen before arriving at the facility

  • Sign in at the City Screening desk

  • All spectators must be seated in the stands during their child’s ice time and respect the physical distancing rules at all times.

  • No spectators are allowed on the rink floor (areas surrounding rink at ice level) during ice times

  • No spectators in the lobby during ice times

  • No food or drinks other than water in a refillable cup is allowed

Spectator Capacity limits for Practices

Each player is allowed 1 parent or guardian in the stands for their scheduled practice:

  • All players can bring 1 parent or guardian to each practice as a spectator.

  • The following volunteers do not count as spectators during practice as long as they are on the ice or bench:

    • Head coaches do not count as a spectators

    • Trainers do not count as spectators

    • Assistant coaches on the ice during practice do not count as spectators

Spectator Capacity Limits for Games

Each player is allowed 1 parent or guardian in the stands during their scheduled game

  • All Players can bring no more than 1 parent or guardian to each game as a spectator,

  • During games there is only 1 trainer and 1 coach are permitted on the bench and do not count as spectators

  • All other rostered bench staff that are present during games will not be allowed on the rink floor or on the bench and will be included as spectators if they decide to be present at the game

At all times we must follow all Government Health Guidelines with respect to but not limited to physical distancing, capacity at the facility as well monitoring for symptoms before arriving at the rink.

If you have any questions please talk to your coach or you divisional convenor
