Hockey skates will get to carve the ice this season, but things will look a little different in light of COVID-19.

Valemount Minor Hockey coach Glenn Loignon says players will have to arrive at the arena already dressed in their gear no more than 10 minutes prior and will be given a spot to lace-up.

Young players who don’t know how to skate won’t be able to play this year as the coaches aren’t allowed to lift skaters off the ice unless they are injured.

“These are only a few of the new rules,” Loignon said.
