February 1st: Additional Rule Changes

All parents, coaches and athletes MUST wear a mask at all times when not on the ice.

Athletes are encouraged to continue wearing a mask, but are permitted to remove it.

Coaches are required to either (a) wear a mask or (b) stand in an area along the boards to teach private lessons, and remain in that area not skating alongside any students, using verbal cues when instructing students. These options may be mixed during a single session to give them a "mask break" while still lowering the risk to coach and students.

CIFSC's Skate Director, Coach Burton, Coach Inna and Board of Directors President Richard Harms will be enforcing rules at freestyle. Failure to comply with their requests, or requests from a member of the Buccaneers organization, will result in freestyle privileges being revoked.

Additional rules from the Des Moines Buccaneers organization:

1. Coaches and skaters must enter through southeast doors and exit through northeast doors.
2. Groups will be permitted in no more than 15 minutes prior to their rental time.
3. The must leave no more than 15 minutes after their rental time.
4. Social distancing MUST be practiced at all times while on the ice and in the building.
5. It is strongly encouraged that while on the ice practice is conducted in a pod format to make social distancing easier.
6. Masks will be required when not on the ice.
7. Spectators are permitted in the stands provided they are wearing a mask and following social disancing.
