After much deliberation, the LHA Board has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021/22 season’s LHA Select Tournament. Given the uncertainty surrounding the ongoing COVID pandemic, we believe that this is the prudent thing to do. The potential for further public health measures, last-minute cancellations, and spectator limits create too much of a challenge to ensure a safe and functioning tournament this season. This situation is clouded further by the late team formations this season, as well as the necessity to provide full refunds for teams withdrawing for any COVID-related reasons.

Moreover, the sense of community and gathering that are so critical to the Leaside tournament will sadly not be possible. This volunteer-run tournament happens because the community comes together to plan, manage and enjoy this wonderful event. We hope to be all back together soon to ensure that next season’s tournament is a resounding success.
