In the event a parent or guardian is unable to accompany a youth the team coach or manager would be responsible for the individual in the event of an incident. The coach or manager does not have to be present at the door to allow the youth to enter. If there is an issue in the facility at any time with an unaccompanied youth, please alert Operations who will speak with the coach or team manager. If the issue persists, Iceplex admin staff will discuss with the user group their responsibilities of utilizing the Iceplex.
