Do squirt games get more than 150 people?

Why would they?

Most youth hockey teams are 15 kids per team. So even with 2 parents per kid you have at most 60 parents.

Considering several parents are coaches and most kids have siblings that need to be supervised I am guessing you’ll have 45 or so parents in the stands for most games. That isn’t a lot and the risk is low when everyone is wearing masks and spreading out.

I wasn’t the one that suggested a limit of 150 might be too low. Ski might not have either if I misread his post.

Nobody is saying it isn’t enough. In fact SkiUMah Law was just stating that MN Hockey may self regulate further to limit to 2 spectator (parents) per player, which is what most rinks have been allowing since the initial shut down.

I think most people are just happy to be able to watch their kids play. I was surprised they were allowing 150. I hoped for 2 or even 1 spectator per player. And I have 2 LiveRink subscriptions to let me watch on my phone, if needed.
