Hockey Canada and OWHA Return to Hockey Statements (June 7, 2020)
On June 4, Hockey Canada released guidelines, or a set of best practices, for return to hockey.
First and foremost, these guidelines work in conjunction with the various health agencies across the country; for us, these means Ontario and Toronto Public Health and their respective frameworks for recovery. Second, Hockey Canada has asked its 13 regional governing bodies to create plans around timing and how hockey will return in their areas.
Over the next number of weeks, the Wildcats will be working with the Ontario Hockey Federation and the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association to create our own return to play plan that addresses accessibility and the safety of our participants.
Toronto Leaside Girls Hockey Association
The TLGHA is one of Ontario’s largest hockey associations for women and girls, with over 1,600 participants ranging in age from three and four year-olds in our Learn-to-Play program to over 150 adults playing in our senior house league.
