The National Sports Center is renting ice for youth sports practice and games. Our facility is working in accord with the guidance provided by the Minnesota Department of Health. Below are specific parameters to support youth sports in a way that will minimize transmission of COVID-19. As we continue to bring groups back into the Super Rink, we are looking to mitigate risk and reduce harm. Below are the guidelines for Super Rink use.
For practices follow the MDH guidelines with a maximum number of 25 people in each pod (2 pods per ice sheet)
Make sure you’re in compliance with Safe Sport mandates (federal law)
Remind parents or caregivers that they should not attend practices.
Wear a mask at the Super Rink, except when on the ice.
Maintain social distancing at all times, except when on the ice.
Use assigned locker rooms only and maintain proper physical distancing of 6 feet
No spectators are allowed at practices – players and coaches only
Please wait in car until 15 minutes prior to practice time – no early admission
All Super Rink guests and staff will be temperature checked upon entry. Anyone with a temperature above 100.4 degrees will be sent home. Do not leave the parking lot until your child has been cleared.
Masks are required except on the ice
For games, 2 spectators per player/per game are allowed. They must wear a mask in the facility and stay socially distanced inside the building. They cannot enter the building until game time and must exit immediately following the game.
