Please pay close attention to the following 2 points regarding attendance at Saugeen Shores Arenas. These pointes include capacity reduction at the arenas and the new QR code requirements.

Point 1. 

The Plex:

Seated spectator capacity: 355

Southampton Coliseum

Seated spectator capacity: 250

Teams that exceed the dressing room capacity may need to rotate players through to ensure capacities are maintained. Once dressed, players can wait in the dressing room hall and/or ice entrance. We have to remain vigilant including wearing masks inside the dressing rooms. Please ensure this is reinforced with local and visiting teams to have masks on in the dressing rooms.

Food and/or drink services are no longer permitted at sporting events. The canteens will be closed.

Point 2

Saugeen Shores, ON; The Ontario government is strengthening proof of vaccination requirements to access some indoor Town programs and facilities.

Beginning Monday, December 20, youth aged 12 to 17 years must present proof of vaccination when participating in organized sports at recreational facilities.

Starting January 4, 2022, the Ontario government will only accept the enhanced vaccine certificate with QR code as valid proof of vaccination. The Verify Ontario app will be used to scan certificates at facilities. The QR code can be used digitally or by printing a paper copy. There are several ways to obtain the enhanced vaccine certificate:
