Group Covid-19 Discussion

Mar 12th
Michael Speakman
I wanted to open up a community discussion about this situation. I know the comments were closed on the previous post, but I think we need to be open to discussion in this community. I've always been anxious about germs. Especially with players spitting on the floor of the bench and blowing their noses on the water bottles. I'm not a fan of the spitting in general but now it seems even more discourteous. I'm thinking of giving up pickup hockey for a few weeks to see what happens. Is anyone else feeling this way? Or is your attitude more just carry on as usual? I'd be curious to know. Thanks to all the JMS community. I know is still lots of fun playing hockey to be had.

Covid19, CoorsX, RollingRockFever, I could never stand the spitting and nose blowing during high school and college years let alone during JMS. I plan on playing it out.

Christian Girtz
Speakman, I couldn't agree with you more. I too am having a hard time deciding whether to play. But, I believe BIG and Braemar have already announced closings for at least a few weeks and other rinks will probably follow and our decision will be made for us.

Mar 13th
Matt Todd
I agree 100% on the spitting. Aside from the obvious germs issues its just disgusting to sit on the bench and be looking down at that, getting it on your skates or on your stick.

Patrick Conlan
Girtz/Speakman - you guys have both been within 1' of my gloves, you'd be fine! JMS on hiatus until at least 3/30. Lotta rinks closing, although NSC Sports Center is still open (at the moment). Not sure why MN schools are still open, but that's another thread... Stay safe and healthy, friends!

Snot and spit aside, it's in the best interest of everyone to stay home. I felt really weird playing my last AHA game on Sunday March 15th. As this situation gets worse by the day, it just makes more and more sense to stay at home. Now when I finally get back in net after a couple months, I may look and feel like Jabba the Hutt. If the "break" lasts any longer than that, it's going to be REALLY difficult for me to come back playing at my age! Well, at least in net anyhow. Be well and stay safe everyone!!!

Michael Speakman
I know Richfield took out their ice to update refrigeration. I don't think there will be any hockey for a while. Even if rinks did open in a couple weeks, I think it would be best for me and my family to not play hockey for much longer than that. Thank god for rollerblades.

I’m guessing the stay at home order the governor issued today will wipe out games until April 10, at least.

Huh. Are the rinks planning on opening up?

Neil Urbanski
I was forwarded the below email from Dakotah! Ice Arena. Of course, it could easily change, but this is their plan: Dakotah! Ice Center Rental Restrictions for Covid-19 We are targeting an opening of May 4th. 1) We are limiting the participants to 20 per session. 2) Participants are not allowed in the building until 15 minutes prior to their session and must be out of the building 15 minutes after their session. 3) There will be 30 minutes between all rentals to avoid 2 groups in the rink at one time. 4) Rink 1 and Rink 2 will be offset so that participants entering and exiting will not cross paths. 5) We are encouraging drop off and pick up of the participants to reduce bodies in the building. Please do not bring siblings to hang out in the building during the ice times. 6) The locker rooms and showers will not be available. Come as far dressed as possible. There will be benches available in open areas to lace up skates. 7) Entry to the building will only be through the sliding doors where rink 1, rink 2 and The Link connect. 8) All interior doors will be propped open to eliminate unnecessary transmission of germs. 9) No open skate, open hockey or open freestyle during phase 1 opening.

Thanks for the info Cullen.

If rinks and jms are going to follow with the minnesota hockey guidelines that I've seen we won't be playing until August 1st. I'm not sure what guidelines the state has or will have but that can have an impact too

The Cottage Grove Ice Arena is open for kids practice, etc., but I also see on the schedule that someone has rented ice for Adult Hockey. I was hoping for their sticks and pucks open skate to get some work in.

Last week I stopped in to my local rink just looking for some open skating to get back in some semblance of shape. I was told probably not until August. Yet, while I was there, kids were doing socially distant drills on the ice.

Nate Knickrehm
Game play can start July 1

Jun 22nd
Shawn Neugebauer
Has it been confirmed that games can start on July 1st? It’s my understanding that the governors orders only allow rinks to open for youth hockey practice and games. It actually lists hockey as a “high risk” of transmission and I don’t think city owned rinks are going to allow adult hockey until the governor clears it.

Jun 22nd
Nate Knickrehm
AHA Players, Real Hockey is back! We are very excited to let you know that the Minnesota Department of Health has updated its guidelines to allow for game play starting July 1! We have a lot of opportunities for you to get back on the ice this summer and fall and finishing the 2019-20

All, I know there is some wonderment that ice arenas may be reopening and other places are scheduling ice times and may be perplexed why JMS is not. As a very long time customer of JMS, I ask you to PLEASE allow JMS to do what they feel is best. And if this means they feel more comfortable opening ice times up after Labor Day, then we all need to respect that decision. But I also implore you to remain part of the JMS family, even if attending ice times organized by others. I thoroughly enjoy playing net with people I know, or maybe only get to skate with through JMS. We're all here to play hockey and have a good time. Lets do that when the time is right. Be sure to recheck for ice times around Labor Day! I'll look forward to seeing you on the ice!!!

Jul 8th
Cullen Kiely
Well said, Rob. I’m a veteran of well over 700 JMS games. I miss the games and the friends I’ve made here. I also really enjoy summer hockey and have been tempted to play with other groups. I still might if the time and location is just right, but my main focus is to find some open skating to get my legs back in shape for JMS this fall. I sincerely hope that Barb is enjoying this well deserved respite!

So who's going for it!?!? I can't believe this thread is 6 months old and I haven't played hockey since! I'll still be sitting it out. Things haven't really improved in my opinion. I don't blame anyone choosing either way. It really has taken a significant mental toll on me to give up one of my favorite activities. My best to all of you, all you people out there that I haven't seen in so long.

Sep 9th
Matt Todd
I'm in the high risk category so I don't think I'm going back for awhile. I want to go back so bad but it just doesn't seem wide. Things seems to be going the wrong way on the covid front. I'm with you, not playing has taken its toll on me mentally, but also physically as I've gained ten pounds.

Tom Bergerson
I will be there the minute it starts back up. Looks like games in a few weeks

Bill Schmidt
I will also be skating once it opens up again, I've actually been skating for over a month now. The rinks are doing what they can, with most you have to come dressed, can't use locker rooms, all require you to wear your mask to get into building, and wear it in the building unless your on the ice (I've seen a few skaters who do where mask on the ice). Some rinks check your temp upon entry (although not consistently). Not that all that precaution guarantees anything, and I don't hold judgement on those that do, or do not, choose to skate. I am looking forward to skating with some long lost friends at the Tuesday and Thursdays JMS skates I have skated for many years! HOWEVER, PLEASE CHECK YOUR TEMP BEFORE COMING TO THE RINK AND IF YOU ARE NOT FEELING WELL - DON'T SHOW UP!

Sep 11th
Rob Jones
I’ve been skating since June 1st. Have not seen issues and have not come across anyone who has had anything COVID related. Most arenas are easy to use, except Braemar and BIG (no bags, no locker rooms). Other arenas provide locker rooms with distancing, require masks to enter, some take temps, and most have no showers or water fountains and bathrooms are scarce.

Sep 11th
Steve Mechelke
I’ll wait.

Sep 13th
Trey Lowery
I feel you Speaks, I'm holding out as well. Felt really crappy to tell my team I'm not going to be joining them for the playoffs. I'm technically not medically cleared but I'd probably would've played if it weren't for COVID. Stay healthy everyone.

Sep 14th
Dan Vogtman
Some arenas are easier than others. Most are spraying down the benches between skates - same with seating for getting ready - with some sort of solution. So then it is about not having your own guys spit on the benches and minimizing contact on ice. New Hope does not allow bags which is not super convenient - so it is basically an outdoor locker room situation - which gets a bit interesting when they also have spin class going on at the same time with all the gazes we get as the moms come in to their classes and guys strapping up in the parking lot.

Forums • JMS Talk Hello from the new owners 1 hour ago Rick Banaszewski Administrator Hi All! Our team is extremely excited to be part of this great hockey community! While we know we may not be able to meet everyone, we plan to attend and play many games, meet the community, listen to constructive feedback, look for new arenas to add, and keep this hockey community moving forward into the future. As we work on completing the transition to our team, please be on the look out for pickup games to restart at most locations. Please also understand that we are learning the behind the scenes efforts, so we may not be able to answer every question immediately. That said, we value your questions and comments, so we will get back with you as soon as we are able. As Barbara mentioned in the newsletter, we bring passion to the sport and diverse business experiences that will allow us to continue providing a wide variety of pickup games and league play at the many rinks you already know, and continue to expand the JMS hockey community footprint. We look forward to getting everyone back on the ice safely, and starting our JMS journey together. All the best, Jason Johnson Rick Banaszewski Jason Jelinek

Hey All, Just checking in to see how the games / Covid precautions are going? I have high risk family in my home and can't risk exposing them because I want to play hockey. Just looking for any feedback as to how it's feeling at the rink, and has anyone got sick yet? That being said, it'll likely be a while before I get back to my usual Tuesday EP skate. Just trying to see if there is hope soon for me. I can't wait to play again!

Oct 8th
Michael Speakman
I can confirm that at least one player has transferred Covid-19 to another player at an AHA game last weekend. I don't want to say which players or which teams. I'm sure that all players involved will/have been notified. But I just wanted to say that it's out there. If a player comes to hockey with Covid, there is a good chance of transmission. Stay safe everyone.

Oct 8th
Cullen Kiely
I played my first JMS game back at Polar last night. With one exception, the guys on my team were making a concerted effort to stay as spread out on the bench as possible. Still, it’s a bit disconcerting when two guys are within a couple feet of each other on the bench panting hard. It’s a bit of a crapshoot, I guess.

Hockey is back and starts up for JMS this Thursday! There are some games posted on our site, however, other times are still being finalized as arenas scramble to reschedule hundreds of hours of ice. Please be patient while we continually load games. Please check your game times carefully as there will be some changes to the start times. Also, as you are all likely aware, there are also new rules for us to follow. The three major changes are: Masks at all times - even when skating. Face coverings must cover both the nose and mouth to be approved for use. These can be a cloth mask, a disposable mask, a neck gaiter, a scarf, a bandana or a religious face covering. You can also wear the CCM Game On Mask, or the Bauer Concept 3 Face Shield and Splash Guard combination. A detailed FAQ on masks can be found here: https://cdn2.sportngin.com/attachments/document/df26-2326491/Minnesota_Hockey_Covid_QA-Dec31-final.pdf No locker rooms will be open and players can only enter the arena 10 minutes before the scheduled skate, and must leave within 10 minutes following completion of the game. All skaters must get dressed and undressed at home or in the parking lot and are not allowed to bring your bag into the arena. Goalies, however, can arrive half dressed and bring their bag inside the arena. The complete Phase 5 Return to Play Rules & Guidelines document can be found at https://www.minnesotahockey.org/news_article/show/1139678.

That is pretty unreal. So no hockey for me then. Wearing a mask for 90 minutes on ice is not tenable. Who comes up with this stuff? State of Minnesota guidelines? So the MDH?

Jan 11th
Jamie Senske
The mask isn’t that bad actually. The disposable ones are pretty breathable. I have been back coaching and the kids have been fine with the masks as well as coaches. It’s not too bad other than just being annoyed you have a mask on the ice.

Trey Lowery
I can assume the responses I may receive, but I'll throw my $.02. My family and I have taken stronger measures in regard to the pandemic. The last game I played anywhere was March of 2019, tore my patellar tendon literally the day after. I haven't played competitively since (skated one JMS essentially on one leg in Feb 2020 against my PT's recommendation). I guess I say this to say, I understand being without hockey and it has completely sucked. If my personal circumstances were different, if it meant wearing a mask on the ice to play, I would do my absolute best to make that work. Again, this is coming from someone whose status is out, self-imposed/rehab, so feel free to take this with a grain of salt or salt lick.

Not sure what t hese guys are getting at. Here is Paragraph 10 of Mn Exec Order 20-81: 10. Circumstances where mandatory face coverings may be temporarily removed. Face coverings required under Paragraph 9 of this Executive Order may be temporarily removed under the following circumstances: a. When participating in organized sports in an indoor business or indoor public space while the level of exertion makes it difficult to wear a face covering. So why are they required at rinks during games? It is killing me not to play, and the lack of exercise is making me and others MORE susceptible to COVID. Let me know when we can play WITHOUT masks and can use the locker rooms and I will be right there

Jan 27th
Steve Adie
I’m with Tom. I’m itching to get back and play but wearing a mask on the ice is ridiculous. I’ll be back when sensibility returns.

Jan 27th
Rick Banaszewski Administrator
Thanks for the feedback Tom and Steve, we get it. The masks are a nuisance, which don't really stay up anyway and can get wet. Unfortunately we're stuck with the rules, but hope they change soon.

Jan 27th
Tom Bergerson
Rick, my point is that the very executive order cited by the Eden Prairie rink above (Exec Order 20-81) has an EXCEPTION to the rules for, and I quote from the actual Executive Order, "When participating in organized sports in an indoor business or indoor public space while the level of exertion makes it difficult to wear a face covering." Does that not cover playing hockey for 90 minutes?

Jan 27th
Rob Jones
I have yet to be at an arena where anyone checks and monitors it. I’ve played with many players outside and in JMS that are either mask less or have them pulled down while playing. Even Braemar didn’t seem to care players brought hockey bags and got dressed there. All this being said, err on the side of caution and follow the rules. Masks are tough, but I’d still rather be playing hockey!

Jan 28th
Tom Williams
The clause about not wearing a mask was rescinded by Executive Order 21-01 on 1/10/21 (7/C/viii/C): C. Notwithstanding paragraphs 10.a and 10.b of Executive Order 20-81, face coverings must be worn by all persons at all times, except when participating in activities that would involve soaking or submerging a face covering in water, such as swimming or showering.

My friend and I will be playing maple grove tonight for the first time since covid hit the news stands. I read through the previous posts but would just like to clarify.... If I have a full face shield (idk what brand its one of the clear plastic ones that covers my entire face) do I still need a mask? Also, the expectation is that gear will be put on in the parking lot and taken off in the parking lot but skates can be put on in side the rink?

Feb 9th
Rob Jones
I have seen a couple players wearing the Itech type full face shields without a cloth mask. Not sure if it’s acceptable. Best scenario is to get dressed at home, bring your hockey bag in the car and have a small backpack or bag for tape, phone, keys, wallet, etc. Put your helmet and gloves on when you get out of the car and carry in sticks and skates. Put skates on inside. Afterwards, get undressed at home.

Jamie Senske
You are required to wear a mask under your face shield as well. Or you can get the Bauer concept 3 spit guard that fits on the shield and blocks the top row of holes on the shield.

Here are the updated Maple Grove guidelines: 2021 Adult Hockey for pick up play and games Overview of current guidelines (not all inclusive) Skaters should not enter the building until 15 minutes prior to the ice time.

The minimum allowance requires skaters to arrive half dress in hockey gear for the pants and leg pads. No equipment bags except for goaltenders. Small bags or backpack with skaters, gloves and helmet is acceptable. No team rooms/locker rooms are available. Use chairs around the perimeter of the rink to change skates. Maintain 6 ft social distancing off the ice. Maintain 9 ft social distancing on the ice, excluding during games.

Maple Grove Update: Locker rooms are now open. They still ask that the bags for skaters are kept to smaller duffels; no full size bags other than goalies. The rest of the rules remain the same. You can find them a few posts up on this thread.

Ive played a couple of AHA games there and they allowed bags. Was just there last night. Locker rooms open, bags allowed. Not positive it’s the same for JMS, but wouldn’t see why not?
