COVID-19 Response

COVID-19 Response


This hockey season is unlike anything from the previous seasons.  For the safety of all coaches and players, we are asking if your hockey player shows any COVID-19 symptoms (cough, fever, diarrhea, shortness of breath), they should not come to the rink for practice until they have had a negative COVID-19 test or are symptom free without medications for 3 days.


Transparency and honesty from our parents will help us all stay healthy-


  • Should your player test positive for COVID-19, please immediately contact our clubs president, Kelly Gaskin at  


  •  If a player or coach tests positive for COVID-19, that individual must quarantine themselves away from all St Jude Knights-related events in compliance with the guidelines set forth by the CDC (CDC Guidelines).  Said player or coach may return when they have received a negative test and a letter of release from a physician indicating they are cleared to return to sports and recreation.  


  • If a player or coach tests positive, all team members will be notified (names will be excluded).  Team members then must follow the advice of their respective health care professionals to determine exposure risk and any quarantine requirements.  If you were unmasked and within 6 feet of the infected person for more than 15 minutes, you must quarantine and be tested for COVID-19 before returning. 


  • If a family member of a player or coach who resides in the same home as the player or coach tests positive for COVID-19, that player or coach must be quarantined until the incubation period has passed and/or a negative COVID test is reported.


  • If a player, coach or in-home family member encountered a possible exposure to a person who has tested positive for COVID-19, please do not participate in club activities until tested negative for COVID-19.


  • If any members of a team test positive for COVID-19, the whole team will be shut down from practices/activities until cleared. 


  • If a player or coach is symptomatic and/or suspected of a possible exposure risk, the team may be subject to a temporary halt of practices until said individual is cleared with a negative COVID test and/or is free of symptoms for 10 days. 


  • If a player has been asked to quarantine for 14-days by their school or coach by their employer, they are expected to then quarantine as suggested from practices to mitigate the risk of potential spread. 


  • Traveling out of state: Members will abide by the state and local (city and county) guidance regarding out of state travel as it relates to COVID-19.
