HOCKEY CANADA STATEMENT:
The following is a statement on behalf of Hockey Canada from Tom Renney, chief executive officer, and Scott Smith, president and chief operating officer, on the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
“Without question, this an unprecedented period of difficulty for the sports world. The health and safety of all participants in sport, including players, coaches, staff, officials, fans, family, volunteers and the general public, is of the utmost importance to Hockey Canada.
After much consultation with the Hockey Canada membership, our chief medical officer and public health officials, the Hockey Canada Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel all Hockey Canada-sanctioned activities*, including our national championships, until further notice, effective Friday, March 13, 2020.
We recognize the tremendous effort that has been put forth all year by individuals across the country as they participate in Canada’s game. Although it is difficult to process the hockey season ending abruptly, we feel this is the best course of action in order to do our part in keeping our country safe.”
*Hockey Canada-sanctioned activities include all Hockey Alberta-sanctioned activities (including games, practices, camps and Provincial Championships).
A conference call involving all of Alberta's minor hockey leagues was just held and we are currently waiting for a final decision from Hockey Canada on the status of minor hockey games. They are still meeting at this time. We hope to have a decision from Hockey Canada within the next few hours and that will be communicated as quickly as possible. Should the decision be left up to Hockey Alberta to make, it may not come out until tomorrow morning
, at which time I will send it out as soon as I get it.
Many leagues across Canada are playing games at this moment, and many games are scheduled for this evening
in Alberta. So, for today, we will maintain the current status and any games that are scheduled for this evening
will be played.
Northern Alberta Interlock President
