Consultation has concluded

The focus on return to play for the local minor sport organizations has been the priority for phase 1 of opening Township ice surfaces. A phased approach will allow for staff to adjust as needed, ensure facility limits for mandatory capacity (Provincial Order 364/20) are enforced and safely re-open to priority users such as minor sports groups first.

Patrons should expect a different experience as staff ensure that physical distancing requirements can be maintained. During this initial phase of opening, parents/guardians and on ice users can expect the following:

Phase 1 entails:

  • Ice availability at the Elora Arena and the CW Community Sportsplex on both pads A & B.
  • Hours of operation will be Monday to Friday from 4-11 p.m. and Saturday & Sunday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  • Ice Allocation will be for Minor Sports Groups only, which includes the CW Minor Hockey Association, Grand River Girls Hockey, Elora Fergus Ringette, Elora Skating Club and the Fergus Skating Club.

There will be no private rentals, township programming (i.e. public skating or shinny programs), tournaments or special events. These opportunities will be part of later phases. During the start-up phases there will be less ice available, capacity limits for users to allow for proper cleaning and disinfecting, risk mitigation controls and proper following of provincial orders.

Although our arenas are open, there are many guidelines and safety measures that have been put in place to ensure the safety and well-being of your family and our residents. Take a moment to review the Facility Protocol documents, found under the document library.
