NE Covid-19 Coordinators/NBYHA & SFYHA Board Members

Welcome back coaches and players!!

Phase 5 return to play guidance (effective January 14th) has been updated by MN Hockey. 

Some updates are:

  • Spectators (up to 2 per player up to rink capacity limits) are allowed for games and scrimmages.
  • MN Hockey's guidance discourages spectators from practices however, 1 person is allowed for practices and must social distance from others.

We recommend reviewing MN Hockey's Phase 5 update

Important information to get the players back on the ice.
MN Hockey’s new MANDATED rules will be:

  • Face coverings are required at all times, including practices and games for everyone! 
  • Players must arrive to the rink fully dressed with the exception of goalies.  Goalies may come half dressed.
  • Players may not enter the arena until 10 min prior to their ice time and players must leave the arena within 10 min of practice being complete.  (This is a change from 15 min.)
  • No bags are allowed in the arenas, with the exception of goalies. 

Thank you all again for all patience during these crazy times.  



COVID-19 Decision Tree and Notifications

Per CDC, MDH and MN Hockey guidelines, it is critical that Members who have a confirmed positive case for COVID-19 notify your NE/NTS/NB/SF COVID-19 team managers and/or association COVID-19 Coordinators (Autumn Hanes, Carolyn Hoffman and Becky Mehregan).  Notification includes the player testing positive, someone in their household testing positive, or someone that the player has come in contact with testing positive and your player is now in quarantine because of.

Team COVID-19 Managers/Coordinators will inform members if they are aware the member has been exposed to a person with COVID-19 during any association activities. NE/NTS/NB/SF youth hockey associations will protect the privacy of the infected persons’ health status and health information. The name of the person testing positive will not be disclosed unless consent is provided by the person.

Staying home when you are sick is one of the best ways to fight COVID-19.  Keeping sick skaters or those that have had an exposure to a person who has COVID-19 away from other skaters will help us stop the spread of this virus, so that we can successfully keep hockey going this season. 

For the 2020-2021 season, Quarantine Enforcement: Players who are instructed per Minnesota Department of Health policies to quarantine, whether related to a positive test, close contact, etc., will be considered ineligible for participation until the quarantine period issued by the Department of Health expires. If it is found that a player who is under quarantine plays in a game, Minnesota Hockey rules subject to playing an ineligible player shall be enforced. Under these rules, the team would be ineligible for District, Region and State Tournaments, and the head coach would be suspended for the rest of the season.




For all practices, refer to the TEAM calendar on SFYHA website for your team’s dates and times. 

Please check the website and your email often for any changes.
