HOCKEY CALGARY BULLETIN
On January 7, 2021, Premier Kenney announced that with the exception of in-class learning, all current restrictions for the province of Alberta to reduce the spread of Covid-19 in the community will remain in place until at least January 21, 2021.
This means that Hockey Calgary programming that was scheduled to resume on January 13 will be further delayed. Much like our membership we are extremely disappointed with this further delay, while we are eager to return, the ultimate decision will be up to AHS and the Government of Alberta. We will continue to work closely with Hockey Alberta to ensure we are open for business once restrictions are reduced.
During this time, all Hockey Calgary and Member Association events remain cancelled; this includes all practices, games and any activity associated with your team (cohort) both on and off the ice. Virtual team activities are allowed and encouraged.
Hockey Calgary and our member Associations continue to look at different options including a possible extension of the season into late April. There is not a finalized plan at this time, but we can say we are doing what we can to provide our members some form of a playing experience in 2021. At this time, it is the intention of Hockey Calgary to fully return to play once restrictions are lifted by the government.
We are aware that time is running out on the current hockey season, we will work with Hockey Alberta and arena operators to determine a date where we can no longer proceed. We thank you for your commitment to our program and your patience as we sort out the details. Hockey Calgary and our Member Associations will continue to do everything we can to get the kids back on the ice as soon as possible.
