Echo Hockey is coming to McDonough on October 24th and 25th.  If your child is interested in playing please let Mike Ennis or Dustin Turpin know.  We will be fielding teams for the following divisions: 8U, 10U, 12U.


Volunteers Needed

We need volunteers to help with Super Saturday on October 17th.  As many of you know Super Saturday is a fun all day event.  We will need help with concessions, grill workers, trash collectors, and score keepers.  If you can help please let Heather Turpin know.

We are also looking for volunteers to help as we host Echo Hockey on October 24th and 25th.  This tournament is our biggest fundraiser of the year.  We have been told in the past that we are the friendliest and cleanest facility.  We strive to keep that image, but we can't do it without you.  We will need help in concessions, grill workers, trash collecting, bathroom checkers and score box.  Please let Heather Turpin know if you can help.

Back to Play Guidelines

  1. Follow all local and state guidelines for facilities and events.
  2. Any coach’s meeting at mid rink will only include one coach from each team and one of the referees.  Email as much communication before the game as to eliminate any need for the meeting.
  3.  The referees will be the only people to touch the puck.  Score cards will be kept in the concession stand in a designated spot.  The scorekeeper for that game is to pick it up and then return it to a separate designated spot at the end of the game.  Scorekeepers are also to wipe down the scorebox and chair at the end of their shift.
  4. Teams will be limited to a ten child max to allow for more area to spread out on the bench.  There will also be a limit of two coaches on each bench.  One coach for each door.
  5. Only the sharing of goalie equipment will be allowed.  One set of goalie equipment will be assigned per team.  Coaches are required to wipe the equipment down with sanitizing wipes and spray any equipment with disinfecting spray that can not be wiped.  No personnel equipment is allowed to be shared.
  6. Allow players to wear PPE equipment if they choose, as long as the items will not affect the safety of the player or other participants.
  7. After games coaches are to clear out all trash and disinfect all hard surfaces, such as the benches, doors, and bench ledges.
  8. Upon arrival at the benches, coaches are to wipe down all hard surfaces (benches and doors).
  9. Games will be scheduled to allow longer times between games to help with crowd control and allow more time for disinfecting.
  10. Traffic flow will move in a clockwise motion after games to avoid contact with as many people as possible.  An extra gate will also be opened to allow for designated entrance and exit.
  11. Players are required to bring their own water bottles and no sharing will be permitted.
  12. Spectators are to sit with their families and not mix with others.  Bleachers will have designated spots for people to sit in order to follow social distancing guidelines.  Spectators will be encouraged to wear a mask and social distance.
  13. Players will be encouraged to put on as much of their gear as possible at the car as to reduce the number of children clustering to get ready.
  14. All high touch areas will be sanitized multiple times during the day.
  15. Players will be encouraged to leave with 10 minutes of their game ending.
  16. Hand sanitizer will be readily available.  As well as soap will be well stocked in the restrooms.
  17. After game fist bumps and high fives will be suspended.  Coaches can try to find a creative way to show sportsmanship without touching. (bowing, waves, etc.)
