January 2021 Family Rental Update


Thanks again to all that have helped keep the ice in Memorial Sports Center with the ongoing Family Rentals. Thanks also to those that have generously contributed to help other local families enjoy the MSC ice. We will continue to work with local organizations to provide skating sessions for families in need over the coming weeks.

·         MAHA and MUHS will be starting their practices at the MSC. Adult groups and other gatherings such as public skating remain prohibited, so we will continue the Family Rental campaign into January to continue to open up skating opportunities beyond youth and HS hockey.

·         We have not seen any extension of the trusted household holiday guidelines, so we will need to revert back to the single household Family Rental policy to conform to State guidelines.

·         January Family Rental slots will be primarily available during the weekdays before MUHS and MAHA practices and potentially afterwards. On weekends, early morning slots and late afternoon/evening slots will be available.

·         All January available slots will be listed on the MSC calendar as “OPEN Family Rental” until they are reserved.

·         Reservation requests for the period from 1/4 through 1/31 will be accepted only via email to manager@memorialsportscenter.org starting this Saturday 1/2 at 5PM. All email requests will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Any requests made prior to that exact time will not be processed.

·         There will continue to be a minimum of 30-minute gap between rentals. When MUHS games begin, a longer gap will be maintained in order to allow travelling teams to arrive and prepare.

·         If the Governor’s orders are rescinded or adjusted prior to 1/31, any Family Rental reservations conflicting with regularly scheduled youth hockey, MUHS, adult group and public skating slots will be canceled and affected families will be notified via email.
