Hockey Canada and OWHA cancel spring tryouts
Submitted By Jessica Tufford on Wednesday, March 18, 2020
The health and safety of all participants in the sport is of the utmost importance to the OWHA. As such, tryouts for the 2020-21 season will not be conducted this Spring.

As we all adjust to the latest news that keeps unfolding, CKGHA wanted to ensure everyone was aware of the latest Hockey Canada and OWHA decisions released March 16th on spring tryouts. 

"The health and safety of all participants in the sport is of the utmost importance to the OWHA. As such, tryouts for the 2020-21 season will not be conducted this Spring. Instead the OWHA will provide guidance on when the introduction of the 2020-21 season will begin, subject to the Hockey Canada Board of Directors’ future decision when to reinstate all Hockey Canada-sanctioned activities. Such introduction will take into consideration ice availability, capacity and other logistics involved in organizing hockey programs"

As you can imagine, this is all uncharted territory for this association and we will have lots of things to sort out. This is a lot of change for all of us, from potential changes in our day jobs and family situations that we ask for your patience and understanding as we sort out the ramifications for our hockey community.  Once we've had a chance to connect as a board and get any further information we will share it - here.  

Any questions - please email [email protected] and we will address when we can.
Thank you
