RHRA strongly recommends that everyone eligible to be vaccinated is fully vaccinated prior to participation in any RHRA activities. This is in line with the recommendations from the Ontario Ministry of Health that everyone who is eligible to be vaccinated, receives the approved number of doses to be considered fully vaccinated.
As of April 22, 2022, RHRA will suspend its COVID-19 vaccination policy and rely on Ringette Ontario’s latest policy dated April 15, 2022 (link to policy below):
Please note that any participant who is not fully vaccinated and chooses to register with RHRA for spring tryouts or other RHRA activities in preparation for the 2022/2023 season must understand that, if mandatory vaccinations return by either Government, Ringette Ontario, or RHRA decision, they will be no longer eligible to participate. Participants who are not fully vaccinated and accept a position with a team for the 2022/2023 season, do so at their own risk.
Should circumstances regarding COVID-19 evolve and dictate a change in our policy, RHRA will revisit this policy accordingly.
Until further notice, RHRA will continue to require participants to wear a well-fitted mask that covers nose and chin for RHRA activities as follows:
Players in FUN 1-2-3 - masks must be worn at all times during indoor RHRA activities, including on-ice activities.
Players in U12 divisions and up - masks must be worn at all times during indoor RHRA activities, with the exception of on-ice activities.
Coaches & Team Staff - masks must be worn at all times during indoor RHRA activities, including on-ice and on-bench activities.
Spectators - RHRA highly recommends that all spectators wear a mask while in the arenas of other indoor settings for RHRA activities.
