Dear Northwest Warriors Players, Coaches, Participants, and Fans,
We have been notified that Hockey Canada, under which our program, and all minor hockey programs are sanctioned, has made the difficult decision to cancel all sanctioned hockey for the remainder of the season, effective March 13, 2020 (tomorrow) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hockey Calgary has clarified stating:
March 13 Update from Hockey Calgary Bulletin_HC_2004_Cancellation
“This means that as of tomorrow registered teams in the Hockey Canada (Hockey Calgary) program will not be permitted to participate in practice, play games or attend tournaments for the remainder of the season. This includes all provincial and regional championships which will be cancelled.”
While this is a disappointing end of the season for those teams who were still in the playoff or provincial race, we agree that this is in the best interests of public safety, which must come before all else.
We look forward to seeing everyone back at the rink in September.
Best wishes for a safe, and healthy off-season.
NWW Operations Committee
