U18 DRIVING POLICY
PURPOSE: To ensure the safety of MHMHA U18 players that hold a GDL license.
Players will be allowed to drive to venues which reside within a 29km radius (Redcliff, Irvine)
- Players who do drive are expected to drive “directly” to and from practice, meaning there are no detours taken that bring another reason for the trip into consideration.
Players will not be allowed to drive to venues which reside outside 30km radius (Ralston, Tilley, Bow Island)
- Players will not be permitted to drive themselves or any of their teammates. MHMHA recommends that a parent or guardian drive to these practices as they are typically later at night when it is dark and a 16/17/18-year-old may not have the necessary experience to drive at night alone. In order to help minimize the number of parent drives, we recommend organizing a carpool initiative to keep the kids safe.
Players will not be permitted to drive themselves or any of their teammates to any games where the Medicine Hat team is the visiting team.
Players will be permitted to drive themselves “directly”, meaning there are no detours taken that bring another reason for the trip into consideration, to any home game within a 29km radius (Redcliff, Irvine)
Players are NOT permitted to drive to any game outside of the 30km radius (Ralston, Tilley, Bow Island) MHMHA recommends a parent drive and suggest setting up arrangements for rides if parents do not want to show up early for games.
No player will be permitted to drive at any time to or from any MHMHA event where a concussion may be suspected in the driver.
