HEALTH AND SAFETY VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Saturday Oct 10, 2020
SJMHA is requesting parents who are interested in helping this season by filling the role of Team Health and Safety Volunteer to contact the office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Health and Safety Volunteers are required for all teams, including teams in house league. The greatest need right now is for the younger divisions of U6, U7, U9 and U11.
The primary responsibility of the Team Health and Safety Volunteer is to keep track of the players, coaches and parents who are in the rink during each on-ice session by checking to ensure everyone completes a screening form (online or on paper). This is critical for providing public health with lists of people in the rink if contact tracing is required in the event of a confirmed case of COVID 19. Keeping track of the players, coaches and parents is a requirement of the Government’s Sport Guidance, Hockey NL’s Return to Hockey Plan, and SJMHA’s Return to Hockey Plan.
One or more Health and Safety Volunteers are required for each team of 10 players and 1 goalie, otherwise we will not be able to operate our hockey program without violating the previously mentioned guidelines and plans. Other duties are explained on the Group Safety Rep page included with the Orientation Checklist, found on the Parent Orientation bulletin pinned to the front page of the capshockey.ca website. The expectation is that the Team Health and Safety Volunteer would only be needed at the rink for their child’s on-ice sessions.
Volunteers will be provided with training and an armband to identify them to other parents. Also, accommodations will be made to allow the Health and Safety Volunteer to complete their duties while still supporting their child as they are preparing to go on ice.
Please consider volunteering for these important positions. If you have any questions please contact any member of the Board of Directors, or Jodi in the minor hockey office.
