LORING ARENA UPDATE

Town of Framingham Division of Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs 475 Union Avenue, Framingham, MA 01702 (508) 532-5960 Memorandum from the desk of James Snyder Date: July 31, 2017

To: Loring Arena Teams, Coaches, and Parents Subject: Loring Arena Temporary Conditions for the 2017-2018 Season As you may know, the Loring Arena Renovation project is well underway.

With the 2017-2018 season rapidly approaching, I would like to provide users with some important information related to arena operations for the coming season.

As a result of ongoing construction at the site, arena users will experience temporary conditions related to: Arena access/egress -

The main public access to the arena for public skating, stick time, and ticketed events will be at the front of the rink, via the northeast side of the building. This is the set of doors that used to be just outside the entrance to locker room A and closest to the basketball court. We encourage players to continue using the current “player entrance” at the rear of the building. Public restrooms, skate shop, and arena administrative offices - These services will be housed in two accessible trailers that will be adjacent to the main public entrance walkway.

Locker/changing rooms – Locker rooms formerly known as B, C, & D will be reconfigured as two locker rooms with dedicated toilet and shower facilities. The area under the length of the north grandstands, formerly know as Locker room X and Framingham State Storage, will be used as two changing rooms. These two areas will not have showers/toilets. Concessions – There will be no arena concessions during the 2017-218 season.

Based on the above, as well as the possibility of changing conditions during the season, we encourage parents to obtain a pair of skate guards for their players. Skate guards may come in handy when the players need to access public restrooms or the skate shop. We understand that conditions this coming year will be less than ideal. That being said, the alternative was to close the arena for the upcoming season and seek ice time at alternate venues.

Relocating our local users to surrounding facilities was a logistics challenge, increased cost of participation, and resulted in playing our “home” games elsewhere. We believe temporary conditions will be less burdensome 

The management staff remains committed to providing a safe and successful season and we seek your help and understanding in making that a reality.

2017-2018 USA Hockey Registration
This is a reminder to register your player with USA Hockey.
 
We are in the process of working with USA Hockey to make sure all players and coaches are ready to go when the season starts.  All coaches, players and on-ice volunteers must have an up to date USA Hockey registration number prior to the start of the season.  NO COACH, PLAYER or ON-ICE VOLUNTEER will be allowed on the ice or the bench without an updated registration.  This is not FYHP rules, these are USA Hockey rules that we are required to follow. 
 
Instructions for registering with USA Hockey:

USA Hockey registration for the 2017-2018 season is due no later than August 27, 2017.

Registration is available online at www.usahockeyregistration.com<http://www.usahockeyregistration.com/>.  ALL SKATERS and COACHES (including practice coaches) in the Framingham Youth Hockey program, regardless of age or level must register with USA Hockey every year.

This is an additional fee that is required by USA Hockey and MA Hockey in order to participate in any youth hockey program. 


Please visit the link above to start the USA Hockey registration process.  Once you get your confirmation number, please do the following:

1.  Go into Edit My Account.  If you forgot your login info, there will be instructions to get a new password once you get there.

2.  Go to your skater's profile(s) and override the current USA Hockey confirmation number with the new number you will receive (or enter it in the blank USA Hockey # box if this is the first time you are doing it).  You will know that your number is current for next season if the 4th digit is a "8".  Make sure you hit save at the bottom!

PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOUR CONFIRMATION NUMBER TO THE REGISTRAR or anyone else in the program to update your profile with this information.  With over 400 skaters in our program, it is not possible for our program volunteers to do this for you.  We appreciate your cooperation with this step in the registration process.

If you've already completed this registration, thank you.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Registrar at 

Thank you

Michelle Tosi
