The following information is an update to the ALLIANCE Hockey Vaccination Policy for the 2021-22 season:
RE: 2010 Birth Year Participants (turning 12 on or after January 1, 2022)
2010-birth year participants will be afforded a grace period of 12 weeks from the date of their 12th birthday to provide proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Once the individual reaches 12 weeks after their birthday, they must provide proof of vaccination in accordance with the ALLIANCE Hockey Vaccination Policy.Re: Participants Aged 5-11
Vaccines are the most effective tool to protect ourselves and our participants from COVID-19. We have seen the positive outcome vaccination has had for our teams who are fully vaccinated.
The COVID-19 vaccine has been approved in Canada for youth aged 5-11 in Canada. It is important for your child to get fully vaccinated to have the best protection against COVID-19. It is recommended that children aged 5-11 receive two doses, 8 weeks apart for optimal protection.
We highly recommend
that all eligible participants obtain their vaccination for the health of our participants and the best chance for the continuation of our hockey season.
