Covid Vaccination Policy - What you need to know before you come to the rink
Submitted By Andrea Maillet on Saturday, September 18, 2021
The 2021/22 season is here!  

Before we all head back to the rink for the season we ask that you review the vaccination information and arena policies here. Vaccinations are required for all eligible players and spectators.

We are committed to doing everything we can as an organization to keep our players, volunteers and community safe. We appreciate all your help and support.

We’re looking forward to seeing you back on the ice soon!

Vaccination information for players and volunteers

Alliance Hockey and GLHA will now require proof of COVID-19 immunization for all coaches, volunteers, bench staff and participants who are eligible for vaccination (including those born in or before 2009), unless exempted. Eligible participants will require proof of having received their first dose before their first skate and must be fully vaccinated by October 31, 2021.

Eligible players and volunteers will need to submit their vaccine validation BEFORE your first ice time.

Those who have not shown proof of vaccination or an accommodation receipt from Alliance Hockey will be ineligible to participate in any on or off ice team activities.

We'll be using an app to have players complete a health screening questionnaire prior to every ice time. More information on the app will be available soon.

Information for spectators

As of Wednesday September 22, 2021 everyone 18 and over is required to provide proof of being fully vaccinated prior to entering any City of London arena including Western Fair. This applies to all participants, coaches, officials and spectators 18 and over. This proof needs to be provided each time they wish to enter the arena.


Everyone can print or download their vaccination receipt which includes all the relevant information they need to prove that they are fully vaccinated. The receipts can be printed or downloaded from the Provincial government website.


Those wishing to enter the arena will need their current vaccination receipt alongside a valid piece of identification such as a drivers license. Anyone over the age of 12 is required to provide proof of vaccination if they are entering to spectate and not participate.


All Middlesex-London Health Unit guidelines and Provincial regulations, including mask requirements, adhering to capacity limits, physical distancing and completing a health assessment prior to entering all remain in place.


The current allotment for spectators is two persons per player. The two person per player allowance includes siblings. Once the limit is reached at the arenas the arena staff may lock the doors and no others may enter at that time. Spectators are permitted to view from the designated areas.
