MYHA Information & Policies for COVID-19 Readiness and Response

Minnesota Hockey has released its updated Return to Play Guidelines, following the announcement by the State of Minnesota on December 28th that organized youth sports may follow a set timeline towards resuming full team practices starting January 4th, 2021, and games on January 14th, 2021.

Remember, we can contribute to helping eliminate COVID-19 by doing these four things:

  • Physical Distance
  • Wash Hands and Practice Safe Hygiene Habits
  • Clean Surfaces and Equipment Between Uses
  • Staying Home When Sick or Experiencing Any Symptoms

The knowledge and circumstances around COVID-19 are constantly changing, and as such, Minnesota Hockey will continue to provide updates and resources as more information develops.



  • Approved participants may not enter the building until 10 minutes prior to their ice time.
  • All participants must leave the building within 10 minutes after their ice time.
  • Anyone entering the building must wear an approved mask at all times, including during on-ice activities.
  • Players must arrive fully dressed; goalies at least half dressed to limit excessive preparation time.  Locker rooms are not available.
  • No bags allowed, unless goalie or medical exception, to discourage changing and lingering inside the facilities.
