Alliance Hockey Statement in Response to COVID-19
Submitted By CYO Development on Thursday, March 12, 2020
The health and safety of our players, team officials, on-ice officials, volunteers, and administrators are always our priority and are at the forefront of all our decision-making. In consultation with Hockey Canada and the Ontario Hockey Federation, all ALLIANCE Hockey operations will cease as of Friday, March 13, 2020.

This suspension of operations directly includes all CYO operations - championship weekend, select and MD games/practices, and banquets (which may resume once it is safe and prudent to do so). 

The CYO will finish the 2019-2020 season with the standings as listed on the website.

At this point we do not have any further information, but as soon as we have any updates we will post them both here, and on facebook.

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 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.”
