COVID Immunization Requirements
Submitted By Jessica Traynor on Friday, September 10, 2021
Dear SMHA Families,

Stratford Minor Hockey Association (SMHA) recognizes the significant impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on sports and recreation.  We have heard how important hockey is to our families, coaches, and participants and are committed to doing what is necessary to keep our rinks as safe as possible for the coming season. 

In keeping with the Alliance Hockey's most recent mandate for minor hockey, SMHA will now require proof of COVID-19 immunization for all coaches, volunteers, bench staff, and participants who are eligible for vaccination (those born in or before 2009), unless granted an exemption by the Alliance.

For more information on the vaccine policy or to apply for an exemption, please follow this LINK to the Alliance webpage.

Eligible participants will require proof of having received their first dose before their first skate (including try-outs) and be fully vaccinated by October 31, 2021.

Ensuring that all eligible individuals are vaccinated will provide us with the best opportunity to keep our participants on the ice and will support larger cohorts and regular team play. Further details regarding the implementation of this policy will follow as information becomes available. 

We ask that all participants who have registered for try-outs complete the form below.  All information is kept confidential, only whether the participant is COVID compliant will be shared with the staff.

COVID Immunization Form

If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to our COVID committee at [email protected]

We look forward to seeing you all back at the arenas soon!
