Dear Leaside Hockey Association Community,

Following the rapid escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic, Hockey Canada has cancelled all Hockey Canada-sanctioned activities across the country until further notice effective Friday, March 13, 2020.

This includes all league CDS, NYHL, and GTHL Games. It also includes our own LHA House League Games, Hockey School as well as ALL team practices, banquets and team parties.

The full Press Release is available here:

This will be a great disappointment to many, including our players, coaches, team staff and board of directors. However, these are the right steps to protect our community during turbulent times.

I am sure that you have many questions and we will continue to provide regular updates as we receive information from Hockey Canada, We are currently working with them on next steps in regard to Spring and Fall tryouts. We will communicate frequently as we receive the information.

At this point in time, no LHA member or team is allowed to use the LHA ice until further notice given the severity of the situation.

Thanks for your patience and understanding. Please stay safe.

Sincerely,

Susan Irving
President, Leaside Hockey Association
