OCTOBER 22, 2020

 Dear Riley Rink Friends and Families:

The Ice is being put down as we post this. Please look at our Facebook page to see the progress. The calendar for next week is shown below. Please read the return to the rink guidelines below for the 2020-2021 Season! 

These guidelines will be updated frequently based on the most up to date guidance from the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development (ACCD) and the other guidelines from our partners such as USA Hockey, USA Figure Skating, Learn to Skate USA, etc.

Our goal is to have a safe and friendly environment for the Northshire Community, and we need everyone’s cooperation. We all will need to adapt to changes frequently throughout the season and our mindset at Northshire Civic Center is to “protect our bubble.” To do this we all need to do our part to ensure we can all have a successful ice season! If you or your child does not feel well for whatever reason, please stay home.

Please click HERE to see detailed information for all people entering the rink.

Very truly yours,

Ian, Dana, Steven, Zack, Megan, Sooner, Joe and Jeffery
