Please read the Updated Covid Policy.

 

CENTER STATE YOUTH HOCKEY  

2021-2022 COVID POLICY 

(ver. 10/1/21A) 

The risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus cannot be eliminated entirely, but our goal is to reduce the  risk associated with playing youth sports as much as possible. We encourage open communication  while we navigate the pandemic together. 

Center State Youth Hockey Association (CSYHA) has adopted the following COVID-19 policy and  protocols in accordance, and in compliance with, the published guidance from the Department of  Health (DOH) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Please note that CSHYA may continue to  update said policy as the DOH, CDC and/or other government organizations, regulations or  guidance is revised and/or updated. 

Please note that any violation of this policy should be immediately reported to the CSYHA Board  of Directors (BOD). Willful neglect of said policy, or intentionally not reporting a known  violation, will be considered an egregious act that may result in broad disciplinary action up to  and including dismissal from the organization. 

POLICY & COVID-19 TASK FORCE 

We understand that there may be a difference of opinion when it comes to the health and wellness of  our family members. The COVID-19 Task Force has been created to help guide members of the  organization in a fair, unbiased manner and so that the implementation and enforcement of the policy  does not lie with any one board member. We would like to remind you that the Task Force guidance  does not supersede the direction given by your healthcare provider. We urge you to make health  related decisions based upon their guidance. 

IF YOU BELIEVE YOU EITHER HAVE COVID-19 OR HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO COVID-19: 1. Refer to the “COVID-19 Exposure Protocol” (attached) and follow the steps provided. 2. Contact your Head Coach. 

3. Head Coach will contact Heather Howard, who is the head of the task force. 

4. The task force will discuss the situation and provide recommendations on how to  anonymously announce to the team their level of exposure. 

5. If you agree with the recommendation provided, no further information will be needed. 

If you disagree with the recommendation provided, you will be asked a series of questions to  correctly identify your level of exposure. (The questions are not meant to punish anyone, but  rather to obtain accurate information so we can advise you appropriately.) Questions can be  answered with “yes,” “no,” or “unsure.” We realizethat when people are placed in a stressful 

situation, recalling specific details of a past event may not be immediate and may cause answers  to change. Based on the information provided, the original recommendation may be revised (or it  may remain the same). 

TRAVEL 

• Every member of CSYHA is expected to know and follow the most recent travel  restrictions issued by New York State and the CDC. 

• Every member of CSYHA is expected to know and follow the most recent travel  restrictions issued by the state and/or county they are traveling to. 

In addition to the rules listed above, our organization requires that players, coaches, and families  follow any and all COVID protocols put in place by the rinks we are using. As we continue to navigate  COVID-19, our organization, members, and players are counting on everyone’s support in order to  provide the best possible environment. That requires our commitment to the policy and protocols  outlined above. 

Please remember that we are GUESTS at the rinks we use (including the IcePlex); hence, the  compliance of ALL CSHYA members (e.g. players, coaches, administrators, etc.) and their  companions or participants at these facilities, is vital to ensuring our relationship and continued use. 

Thank you for your consideration and cooperation.
