SCNS would like to echo what Dr Strang said today, that we need to appreciate the fact that our skaters are allowed to be on the ice to practice and increase their skill development.

At this point in time, no events or competitions are allowed. This means, for us, no ice shows, assessment days or competitions until that restriction is lifted.

The Province of Nova Scotia’s announcement of December 16th remains in effect; the total number of people on the ice is 25 without social distancing and only 1 group.

The number of 25 would include all skaters, coaches and program assistants and is consistent with all previous regulations

No spectators in the arenas.

Please contact your facility with regards to parents bringing their skater into the arena and putting their skates on.

There were changes in today’s announcement to rotational workers:

Starting Friday, Jan. 15, testing will be mandatory for rotational workers who work outside Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador.

The details of all regulations by the Province can be found at 

We will continue to keep you informed of any updates as they become available.
