COVID-19 - UPDATE

MARCH 25, 2020

We hope all families and friends are staying safe and healthy.

The City of Guelph is extending the closure of all City facilities to April 30 to slow the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The league has been monitoring the developments of the escalating outbreak of the COVID-19 virus.

The safety and health of all the participants, staff, families and friends are the highest priority at this time.

The season opening has been postponed to May.

In the interim, we will be continuing to monitor and assess the situation, with the guidance of public health authorities and our sport’s governing bodies. We’ll keep you up to date of any further changes. The League will be monitoring on a regular basis to keep pace with the evolving situation. If public health authorities determine that it is safe to return to public facilities, the league will update the membership to complete preparations for the upcoming season. The league will provide updates and will follow the Local Public Health Organization’s recommendations.

The many closures of public gathering places and events has the potential to slow the spread of the virus and prevent the outbreak from reaching the level already seen in some other parts of the world. The league is fully supportive of all measures to keep our community safe and healthy.  

The Guelph Minor Ball Hockey League hopes that all participants, staff and their families and friends remain healthy and safe during this difficult time.

Thank you for your patience, understanding and support.

The Canadian Ball Hockey Association (CBHA) is committed to providing its participants and other support groups related to our programs, a safe and healthy environment in which to enjoy the sport of ball hockey.

With the recent events relating the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the CBHA Board of Directors have made the decision to suspend all CBHA sanctioned activities (including those of our member provinces and leagues), effective Tuesday March 17, 2020 until Friday April 17,2020. This date may change due to the nature of the situation. The CBHA Board of Directors and its member Provinces will provide a status update as we approach April 17th!
 
The Board is unanimous in their position that this is the proper and responsible action required to ensure the safety and well-being of all individuals involved with CBHA sanctioned programs.
 
The CBHA has been advised that the ISBHF will be meeting very soon to discuss the upcoming World Championship events in Europe. The CBHA will await direction from the ISBHF and advise its members accordingly.
 
The CBHA will continue to monitor the situation and will keep our members posted on any new developments and actions that may be required.
 
The CBHA wishes to thank, in advance, all involved with CBHA programs and activities for their cooperation as we all navigate through this unique and difficult situation.
