Welcome to SASA′s home on the web!

SASA Mission Statement
To provide a fun, safe, competitive environment that allows not only each child to grow and develop into the best hockey player they can be, but the best person they can be.  This is to be done by learning teamwork, camarderie, sportsmanship, dedication, and having respect for the game, coaches, officials, and parents who help serve our hockey community.

SASA COVID Form

Hello SASA families,

Below you will find the SASA COVID Form.  SASA is requiring all SASA players to complete this form. This will be kept on file for each player throughout the season. When entering the rink each player will have their temperature taken and answer brief screening questions. This form will need to be presented by the player when they arrive for their first SASA event.  Thank you for your assistance with keeping our SASA community safe.

SASA Board of Directors

SASA Reopening Guidelines

SASA Families:

The SASA Board of Directors has been busy working on and planning a safe way to be able to play hockey this season. Based on the best available guidance from USA Hockey, VSAHA, the Collins Perley Sports and Fitness Center and guidelines from State of Vermont, we are implementing safety protocols to adhere with all the mandated guidelines while supporting a hockey season that will be normal as possible for all of us.

We have met with staff at the Complex and rules will be imposed that will have to be followed to allow SASA to utilize the facilities.

The safety of our player, coaches, parents and the community is at the forefront of these protocols.

As a reminder SASA is a non-profit organization, no one on the board gets paid, this is not anyone’s full time job, and everyone is a volunteer.  Please be patient with us as we work our way through these unprecedented and constantly changing times. We do know one thing, let’s play some Hockey and let the kids have some fun!

Thank you,

SASA Board of Directors

 

St. Albans Skating Association & CPSFC Reopening Guidelines Updated 9/24/2020 – This is a living document and is subject to change.

1.  The only two entry points for SASA members will be at the southwest and northwest corners of the ice rink in the rear of the building. When entering the building EVERYONE will be required to wear a mask. The complex will have designated areas that will adhere with current social distancing guidelines for the children to prepare themselves to get on the ice. The children and coaches will be required to wear masks the entire time they are in the rink, including while playing.

2.  SASA and the complex ask that all the children arrive mostly dressed in their equipment to mitigate the amount of time they spend in the rink. Children and coaches will only be allowed into the rink 15 minutes prior to their scheduled ice time. The rear entrances (north or south) will be designated on the schedule of which entrance players should utilize for their scheduled ice time.

3.  Only two locker rooms will be open at the north and south side of the complex, which will be designated by the complex. Both rooms will be restricted to six players only and will need to be monitored by a SASA volunteer to assure the same six children utilize the locker room and adhere to social distancing guidelines. There will be one restroom that will be available in the event a child needs to use the restroom. The restroom for use will be designated by the complex and relayed to SASA.

4.  At this time adults are not going to be permitted in the building and this includes the hallways and lobby.  The only exception will be for the Young Blades and Mite (8U/U8) levels where a parent may need to assist their child with tying their skates. The adult will only be allowed to remain in the designated rink area where they entered with their player if they remain wearing a mask and can remain socially distant from other players and parents. It should be noted that only one parent per child and no siblings will be allowed to enter with the parent and or SASA participant.

5.  A COVID waiver form will be posted on the SASA website prior to the start of the season.  This form is required on the first day your child enters the rink. No one will be allowed to enter the rink if SASA does not have a COVID form.  These forms will be kept on hand at the complex in a binder maintained by SASA.  Upon arrival to the facility each time, the children, coaches, and parents will need to have their temperature taken. The temperature will be recorded, and screening questions will be asked to ensure that the child or adult is free of any COVID type symptoms.

6.  Due to the lobby being closed and SASA and the complex trying to minimize the amount of cleaning that will be required, the snack bar will not be open for volunteer hours. Yes, there will still be volunteer hours. These hours will be in other forms such as screening people entering the building, locker room monitors, fundraising and other possible hockey activities that the board is working on.

7.  At this time no spectators will be allowed in the facility.

8.  We will adhere to all state guidelines on public gatherings and understand that those guidelines could change.

9.  Out of state travel will only be allowed between or involve Vermont-based teams or teams from counties eligible for quarantine-free travel to Vermont, based on the most recent map, published by the Agency of Commerce and Community Development. 

10.  VSAHA will provide procedures for other rinks around the state so teams can prepare prior to the game to ensure SASA adheres to all other associations’ guidelines.

11.  All SASA Volunteers must complete VOSHA Work Safety Training for COVID-19.  Please click on the link here to be directed to the VOSHA Training.  https://labor.vermont.gov/document/protecting-safety-and-health-workers-vosha

12.  SASA encourages everyone to Be Smart and Be Safe! If anyone (child, parent or coach) shows up with a temperature they will be asked to leave. If anyone shows up with any kind of sickness or exhibiting any COVID type symptoms (cough, runny nose, sore throat, headache etc.) even if they do not have a temperature they will be asked to leave.

13.  If for some reason SASA is not able to have a hockey season SASA will provide a refund to its members. If the season gets cut off at any time throughout the hockey season SASA will provide a partial refund. This refund will be given on a pro-rated monthly basis. The calculation for the partial refund will be based on a five-month hockey season that would run from October 1, 2020 through February 28, 2021.

14.  Each of these guideline requirements and rules are subject to change at the direction of the SASA Board of Directors, Vermont State Amateur Hockey Association, USA Hockey or The State of Vermont.

15.  The Board of Directors reserves the right to dismiss any member for refusing to comply with these or any guidelines that govern our activities.
