The Connecticut Rink Owner Association's Return to Play Rules and Guidelines, developed in conjunction with the State of Connecticut, will allow for the resumption of in-state games (Step 2) beginning 2/1/2021. (CIAC high school games will commence 2/8/2021)
All patrons will enter through the main entrance of ETR. Rink entry through DK’s Hockey Shop will be prohibited. Exit will be through the side door in the ETR lobby. There will be signage to direct foot traffic.
Per the state mandate, cloth face coverings (masks) must be worn by everyone inside an arena at all times. This includes participants during on-ice practice and game play.
The parking lot shall not be used as informal meeting spaces for teams or parents prior to, during and after events. Congregating in groups larger than 6 is prohibited by state mandate.
Locker rooms will be open and equipment bags will be allowed. It is recommended that players arrive to the arena fully dressed with the exception of skates (coming into the arena with skate guards on is ideal), gloves and helmets.
Players must not enter the arena prior to 20 minutes before the start of their scheduled ice time. They must exit the arena no later than 15 minutes following the conclusion of their ice time.
Capacity limit will be 25%, capped at 200 spectators.
Dryland activities will not be allowed inside the arena common areas.
Above all, if you are not feeling well, please stay home.
We appreciate everyone’s patience and cooperation in adhering to these new guidelines and ask that all patrons abide by ETR staff direction.
All areas of use at ETR, including common areas, locker rooms, player benches and other “high touch” surfaces, will be cleaned after each hour and operational areas within ETR will be disinfected each night.
