    We are happy to confirm that both ice surfaces and our large gymnasium will be open starting on August 4, 2020. Unfortunately we are not yet in a position to open our fitness centre. We apologize for any inconvenience and will update this page when it is available.

     

    We will not be having drop in gym time or public skating/shinny until further notice.

    All user groups who wish to enter understand the increased risk of Covid-19. We encourage each group to pass on this information to its participants for review. The Don Hartman North East Sportsplex has implemented policies recommended by Alberta Health Services (AHS) to maintain safe operations and are practicing all required COVID-19 cleaning guidelines.

     

    Each user group must have a Representative at every booking time who will take responsibility for ensuring all COVID-19 Guidelines are followed.

This representative must also keep a list of all players in attendance at each booking time as required contact tracing for AHS.
