After the Government of Alberta’s announcement this afternoon regarding the loosening of some restrictions, it is clear that we will not be able to meet the deadline of February 11th in order to proceed with final league scheduling for the remainder of the 2020-21 season. This means there will not be any further scheduled league games for the Chinook League (U12-U19AA), and the Ringette Calgary Children’s League (AS-U10).
To be clear, that does not mean that your home association will not continue to plan to use any remaining ice for skill development once restrictions are lifted for team sport, and you should expect some communication from them on that shortly.
Thank you to all of you for doing everything you could possibly do to keep your players, parents and team staff as safe as possible during a very challenging season. As League Director, I am very proud of our protocols, compliance and safety record.
Here’s hoping the 2021-22 season comes with a little more “normalcy”, and that we will see you all back in the rinks, but in the meantime, stay safe.
Judy Renneberg, League Director
