So far, we have exceed all of our expectations on opening and keeping everyone safe this summer. As we plan for the fall and winter we remain vigilant on sanitizing and social distancing and look forward to as normal a hockey season as we can hope for. We continue to have changes in scheduling and modifications to our ice user groups plans. Please be patient and understanding with all of this "confusion", we too want to get going and back to normal!
So far, we are pleased with how well all of our small block groups have followed our COVID rules! We have been operating with small groups most days from 8 am to 8 pm.
AS we all begin to look forward to fall and teams and programs getting back together, we believe that we can make this all work with common sense and a CLEAR Understanding that anyone not feeling good MUST stay away.
As with this whole process, things are changing daily and we are doing our best to stay on top of the changes. We hope to have all of the Safety pieces in place for a full winter season!
As we march to our expected June 1, 2020 we have a few more procedures to finish up as we all move forward to a "new normal".
We have determined that for the very near future that OPEN HOCKEY and OPEN SKATE will not be available. We will be looking at "closed groups" and small group training until we get all of the pieces worked out.
Please be patient with us as we step through the process with a keen eye on safety for our staff and customers.
HOPE TO SEE YOU ALL SOON!
Well, we are getting ready to open the doors again! We have had enough of no skating and we have taken this time to replace our compressor, touch up the paint, clean and seal the floors, disinfect EVERY surface and freshen up the ice resurfacer.
We are planning on an opening on June 1 after we put in our new sheet of ice and test out our new mechanical systems.
We do know and understand that the way things were is not the way things will be going forward. We will ask that you follow and strictly adhere to our new "rink rules". These will be in place for the protection , enjoyment and safety for ALL Ponds staff and customers.
We will have more on this in a few weeks.
We hope to see you all soon! Stay safe and healthy... the ice is just around the corner!
Well, We tried!
We have doubled and tripled our cleaning process to follow all guidelines or surpass them. We have cut our operations down and have postponed many on ice sessions.
Until further notice we are limited to individual lessons.
We'll all make it through and be back to Hockey as usual soon.
Until then, Stay safe, separated and healthy and keep washing your hands!
What is skARTe? Well as we step forward as a lifestyle/health facility we will be adding a unique twist to the facility and opening up advertising options embedded in ART and Augmented Reality.
