COVID Info

First and foremost, our players, coaches, volunteers, and family’s safety is our number one priority above all else.  With that said, here are the 2021-22 season guidelines. 

As many of you know the rules and guidelines around COVID-19 are ever evolving and changing daily.  We are a 100% volunteer organization and will do our best to keep you as up to date and informed as we can as information becomes available. 

We are working closely with Olmsted County Public Health, District 9, MN Hockey, USA Hockey, & MN Department of Health on updated guidelines and procedures to be able to return to play safely.  Please use resources provided here to help better understand steps and procedures taking place to keep everyone safe.   As always if you have any questions or concerns please contact our Covid-19 task group (ryhacovidinfo@gmail.com address). 

Remember we can contribute to helping eliminate COVID-19 by doing these four things:

  • Physical Distance
  • Wash Hands and Practice Safe Hygiene Habits
  • Clean Surfaces and Equipment Between Uses
  • Staying Home When Sick or Experiencing Any Symptoms

The knowledge and circumstances around COVID-19 are changing constantly and, as such, Minnesota Hockey will continue to provide updates and resources as more information develops.
