    Servus Place & Akinsdale-Kinex Arena Warm-ups

    09/28/2016, 7:00am MDT
    By Ron Heigh

    To all users of Servus Place & Akinsdale-Kinex Arenas:

    As your seasons are starting up we are once again sending the warm-up guidelines to our membership so that everybody is aware and clear on the process. We respect the desire for pre competition dry land training; however we are limited as to available space, and are responsible for the safety of the teams and other patrons who frequent the facilities.

    Servus Place
    The option for Servus Place is outlined in the attached guideline is the safest and least disruptive to all patrons of the facility. 

    Please be advised that staff will be stopping teams that are doing activities in prohibited areas and directing them to the area designated as feasible. Teams in the designated areas of Go Auto Arena that are disruptive to the on ice activity will be asked to stop and leave the area. 
    We ask that all coaches and players comply with staff requests/direction.
    Akinsdale/Kinex Arenas
    All team warm ups in the seating/public areas at Akinsdale/Kinex Arenas are prohibited. Activity in these areas is unsafe, and is extremely disruptive to other users of the facility. Teams will be advised to utilize their dressing room areas for static warm ups. The City is currently working in partnership with St. Albert Minor Hockey in planning a project that deals with the warm up space challenges at Akinsdale/Kinex Arena.
