The following protocols must be followed in order to enter and play at the Flight Exec Centre arena in Thames Centre:
All rentals for the FlightExec Centre will enter through the main entrance (south entrance), including Gymnasium, Auditorium and Lions Room rentals.
Arrival and Security
Users should arrive at our facility 30 minutes before their scheduled rental time. All users will be greeted by a security guard who will be enforcing mandates set out by the Province of Ontario.
Proof of Vaccination
As per Ontario Regulation 645/21 all patrons entering an indoor recreational facility must be fully vaccinated from COVID-19. The security guard at the entrance of the facility will be denying entrance to any patrons who fail to present their vaccination status or are unvaccinated. All patrons must present proof of their vaccination as well as a valid form of identification (driver’s license, passport or birth certificate).
Children between ages 12 and 18 will also be allowed to enter indoor sports and recreation facilities without showing proof of vaccination but only “solely for the purpose of actively participating in an organized sport.”
In the case of exemptions, anyone entering the arena to coach, volunteer, referee, or perform work will not be required to be vaccinated as per O.Reg 45/21. Any organization with volunteers working must provide the names of the volunteers, times working, and tasks they are completing prior to the night that they are volunteering. Volunteers are not to be spectators.
The Municipality of Thames Centre will have a QR code available for rentals to use as a tracing tool but it is the responsibility of the rental to ensure this is being completed by their group.
Any individual entering the facilities must wear a face covering that covers their mouth, nose, and chin unless exempt through the exemptions set out in subsection (4) of O.Reg 364/20.
Users must wear face coverings when entering the facility, while they are in the dressing rooms, and while exiting the facility. They may remove their mask when exiting the dressing room to go onto the ice surface but must put them back on when re-entering the dressing rooms after their ice time.
During games, players do not require masks while on the bench; however, all coaching staff and trainers must wear masks while on the bench.
Spectators must always remain masked. They may pull their mask down in order to consume food and drink but otherwise must remain masked even if they are physically distanced from people outside of their household.
Thames Centre has zero-tolerance towards abuse and disrespectful behaviour. Such actions will result in immediate removal from the facility with the repeat offenders resulting in potential loss of use to Thames Centre facilities.
