With the current situation regarding the increase in COVID-19 cases in the province, we wanted to update the community on how this may impact the winter 2022 season set to start the first week of January. As of right now, provincial public health restrictions do not prevent us from operating as there are no restrictions for indoor sports beyond a reduction in spectator capacity from 100% to 50%.
With that being said, this is a rapidly evolving situation and we are making contingency plans in the event that we are not able to start as planned in early January. Here are some of the potential scenarios if we cannot proceed as scheduled:
- Delay our start in January and run later into March than anticipated;
- Run a shortened season (ex. 6, 7 or 8 weeks) with teams/players being credited/refunded for any games subtracted from the normal 9 game season;
- Cancel the season entirely with teams/players being credited/refunded for the season (only considered as a last resort).
As the situation changes, we will have more information available and will have a better idea of how we will proceed. We will continue to keep you posted in the meantime.
As always, thank you for your patience and understanding.
