OMHA Suspends all Hockey Indefinitely
Submitted By Kelly Farnsworth on Thursday, March 12, 2020
In light of the ongoing development surrounding the Coronavirus that has been labelled as a global pandemic by the World Health Organization, OMHA has suspended all hockey activities (i.e. practices, games, tournaments etc.) effective immediately and until we are advised differently.
 
 


Please see below a message from OMHA regarding the suspension of all hockey activities:

The Ontario Minor Hockey Association’s foremost priority is the health and safety of our participants, volunteers and hockey families. We have been proactively working alongside Health Canada, Hockey Canada and local public health officials in regards to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). In light of recent events, the OMHA Officers have made the decision 
to immediately suspend all hockey activities. We will be proactive in informing our constituents on all upcoming protocols and required actions as they become available. 
 


HOCKEY CANADA STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

 

CALGARY, Alta. – 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 is 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.”
