The Town of Oakville has opened up the Sixteen Mile Sports Complex and granted Return to Play status to Skate Oakville based on the guidelines and protocols provided and communicated to our members.  Unfortunately, even as we stress the need for adherence and respect, we have several members that have made it a requirement to develop disciplinary protocols so that we may ensure these privileges are not in jeopardy for the majority that are respecting the protocols.

In the event the Return to Play protocols in place at Sixteen Mile Sports Complex are not adhered to or respected, the following action will be taken.

  1. A communication to the person/parents of the violation will be delivered. This will be considered a first communication that there is a problem and the actions will not be tolerated.
  2. If this continues, a second communication will happen, and this will be considered a warning that should the actions continue they will be suspended from activity as well as not be permitted near the facility.
  3. On the third instance, they will be asked to leave the premises immediately and not permitted to return until notified by the COVID Oversight Group. The COVID Oversight Group will review the situation and determine if a suspension is warranted and the length of the suspension.

 

These actions are in place to protect the health and safety of all participants including skaters, coaches, parents and staff.
