Time and time again, we have all seen it ...
... when teammates get together to play hockey at rinks across Canada and hit the dressing rooms, a disorganized mess of hockey sticks quickly develops – usually inside and outside the dressing room.
Disorganized sticks in and around arena dressing rooms create a dangerous environment that are a serious liability hazard to players, coaches, trainers, officials, volunteers, parents, grandparents, siblings, friends and the public in general.
They are constantly at risk of:
- tripping over disorganized sticks,
- in danger of getting hit by a falling hockey stick or worse, a group of sticks.
The current systems in place to contain hockey sticks at arenas are ineffective and continue to:
- pose a risk to the public,
- leave Arena Operators and their Owners exposed to severe lawsuits.
Even when player’s sticks are placed:
- in dressing room wall corners,
- against walls, on floors in dressing rooms,
- in an arena provided garbage can,
- in-between an inadequate sort of stick organizer ...
... they inevitability get knocked over ...
... or, they simply lay disorganized:
- across the dressing room floor,
- beside and/or across doorways,
- on arena hallway floors and/or walls
- Or, a combination of all these!
