With the COVID-19 Pandemic creating so much uncertainty in North America for the upcoming 2020-2021 junior hockey season, a new program in Europe is being launched.
A team for North American players only, will call Europe home for the 2020-2021 season.
A 3500 seat arena allowing for social distancing of fans, coupled with on site player housing, on site dining facilities, on site fitness facilities, and a limited public access environment allow for an unprecedented safe training and living environment for selected players in Europe.
Arena seating allows for up to 500 fans to watch games with safe social distancing measures in place. In the event of a return of the Coronavirus, the unit becomes a fully self contained training environment allowing for the continuation of the season without fans.
Newly constructed player dorm housing that is actually attached to the arena, and only accessible by the players, so that players do not have to interact with the public directly while focusing on their development.
Dedicated dressing room, with team lounge, coaches offices, team offices, dedicated team only kitchen, equipment room and trainers room all on site.
With the uncertainty facing many junior hockey programs in North America, the Play Safe Stay Safe program was developed to ensure an uninterrupted season whether the COVID-19 virus returns or not.
This team is only open to United States and Canadian born players. It is a fully sanctioned team able to play for the National Championship. Limited Forward and Defense positions remain.
