ALLIANCE Hockey Vaccination Policy Update
In March 2022, proof of vaccination or proof of recent negative COVID-19 test, and mask wearing requirements were lifted by the Ontario Government and on April 14, 2022 the OHF released their Vaccination Policy for the 2022-23 Season.

In conjunction with these announcements, ALLIANCE Hockey will not require proof of vaccination to participate in sanctioned programming for the 2022-23 Season, which includes Spring tryouts for 2022-23 teams. 

While masks or proof of vaccination are not requirements, ALLIANCE Hockey strongly encourages all eligible participants to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and support masking for anyone who prefers to wear one. 

If you feel ill or experience any COVID symptoms we remind you to please reconsider participation until you are symptom free. 

If ALLIANCE Hockey needs to reinstate the proof of vaccination requirement based on Ontario Public Health/Ministry of Health recommendations during the season, participants who are not fully vaccinated or haven't previously received an approved accommodation in accordance with the definition of "fully-vaccinated" that is applicable at the time, will not be permitted to participate. We strongly recommend maintaining up-to-date vaccination status to reduce the risk of potential interruption in participation. Additionally, if or until government and/or Public Health instructions change, we encourage all to continue wearing masks while in places that are crowded or involve close contact with others. As a community, please be respectful of everyone's choices. 

Thank you for your cooperation in ensuring a safe and healthy hockey environment for all participants to enjoy.
