As the COVID updates from the government, medical and your own professional fields have been announced, the OWHL has received many inquiries as to the status of the post and pre 2019/20 hockey season will be. The OWHL determined a conference call would be the best option to allow an update to be delivered to the Ontario Associations. As the President of SCGHA, I would like to provide you with the following message that has been communicated.
The OWHL has reminded us that we are all in this together; we are working on this on a daily basis; holding weekly meetings to determine items; more so, we wish all the best to all the families and hope they are safe and most of all, we thank all the first line workers who are working hard, being our heroes.
In regards to the 2019/20 Season, March 11 formally announced the pandemic and hockey progressed; March 12 administrators engaged a national call with Board of Directors, which determined that the season will terminate at midnight. Information was communicated to all involved via many social media methods. Tournaments and play are to be cancelled immediately and make outstanding items work, as much as limitations, can make possible.
Although the Provincial Championships were cancelled, we congratulate all the qualified teams on their achievements and when time and the situation permits, keep sake hats and LL merchandise will be given out at a later date. All sanctioned tournaments cannot be hosted and monies to be refunded (if already obtained). For same reasons, no new tournaments are to be organized.
Following the Bylaws, the SCGHA Annual General Meeting will be rescheduled at a later date. Further information to follow.
In regards to the 2020/21 season, the options are guided by Ontario Government, Medical Professionals and Hockey Canada. Until it is determined by those bodies, there is no sanction hockey; therefore, there will be no tryouts or no creation of teams. Basically for the health and safety of all our players, volunteers and associated personnel, no hockey will be permitted. As a result, permission to skate releases will not be provided at this time.
All pending certifications are under review and further information will be posted on the OWHL website.
As the brainstorming occurs, the upcoming season could potentially commence in September, January or no return. All items related to these options must overcome restrictions or many factors including timing, rule changes, regulations and health/safety items.
The next steps can not only be based on cost savings but need to be determined with the inclusion of the well-being and the safety of all involved.
HOCKEY CANCELS AS A COUNTRY, STARTS AS A COUNTRY.
