RE: Provincial Championships
Due to the ongoing evolution of the COVID-19 virus within the province, coupled with the current recommendations and restrictions in the Sport Guidance document, Hockey NL has made the difficult decision to cancel all 2021 provincial championships.
An event of this scale in respect to planning and delivery, cannot be executed in compliance with current restrictions within the province.
Hockey NL is working towards planning possible alternative competitions within respective regions for the 2020-2021 season should it be safe and feasible to host.
We appreciate your anticipated understanding in this decision as we all work towards reducing the spread of the virus, with the hopes of a return of provincials in the 2021-2022 hockey season.
Executive Director, Hockey NL
