The measures are in effect starting on Monday, October 19, 2020 at 12:01 AM, for a minimum of 28 days. After consulting with public health officials, the City of Markham will allow all arena permits to continue under updated criteria.

  • NEW! Maximum of 10 people per booking including trainer and coaches

  • NEW! No spectators allowed

  • NEW! Change rooms and locker rooms are not available, participants need to enter the building dressed as much as possible. Note: for children still using car seats, bulky clothing should not be worn beneath seat belts to ensure restraints are as close to the body as possible.

  • NEW! All game play or scrimmages are suspended (skill development and training can continue)

  • NEW! Each team follows and reviews updated Return to Play guidelines established and/or provided to your group that is most closely related to your sport. Learn more about Ontario’s Return to Play guidelines.

The City of Markham understands the social, physical, and mental health benefits of staying active and engaged.
