As per the memo issued from the Saskatchewan Hockey Association (below) all minor hockey has been cancelled for the remainder of the season effective March 13, 2020. Please note this includes games, practices, tournaments and any other on ice events. We wish to thank all of our PSMHA members for a fantastic season and look forward to seeing you soon.
On behalf of the Saskatchewan Hockey Association Board of Directors I would like to advise the Saskatchewan Hockey Association (SHA) membership of the decision of Hockey Canada to cancel all Hockey Canada sanctioned activities, including National Championships, until further notice, effective Friday March 13, 2020.
The past few weeks have been difficult as we witness the world react and address the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We agree with Hockey Canada that the health and safety of everyone connected to all sports is what our focus needs to be at this time.
Therefore, all sanctioned activities within the Saskatchewan Hockey Association must seize for the remainder of the season as of tomorrow, Friday March 13, 2020.
Saskatchewan Hockey Association programming in the areas or SHA Provincial Playoffs, Sask First Female Futures, Sask First Female Futures, Sask First Female and Sask First Midget Tournaments are officially cancelled. The SHA staff will make the appropriate refunds to families registered for those programs. There will be plans made for those programs that extend into next season and the selection and evaluation of Provincial Teams however, as we hope you can appreciate, it will take some time to determine how those plans look like given the worlds landscape today.
This is not a decision that was made lightly; however, the health and safety of everyone connected to our sport was paramount in the decision-making process.
