Program Services Resources

The following links, documents, and other information are collected to give administrators the tools they need to build strong programs.


Returning To The Rinks

As we together work our way through the COVID-19 pandemic, USA Hockey will continue to provide updates to our associations and Affiliates. These considerations focus on initially returning to the
rink for practices/tryouts only. A phased approach to hockey programming would initially focus on practices (which limits the number persons in the rink).

Local rinks and programs need to follow the guidelines set forth by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well state and local government officials in determining when, and how, it is appropriate to return to the rinks, including requirements or guidelines for physical distancing, size of gatherings or number of persons permitted in a facility, or wearing of masks, etc.

The information in this document is not intended or implied to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. The knowledge and circumstances around COVID-19 are changing constantly and, as such, USA Hockey makes no representation and assumes no responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of this information.
