ASHL Update: Saskatoon

📅 Updated: February 8th, 2021

SASKATOON, Sask. — Provincial health orders in Saskatchewan currently remain in effect until 12:01 a.m. on March 19th, which currently includes restrictions that prohibit team sport gameplay, including the ASHL. 

While our location in Saskatoon remains open — with enhanced safety and cleaning protocols — for limited youth programming in accordance with Provincial guidelines, we remain optimistic that the Provincial Government will see the value in sport and find a way to safely permit its return.

So, where does this leave us for the Winter ’21 season?

Should Provincial restrictions on gameplay be lifted, we would prepare to start the Winter ’21 season as efficiently as possible, maintaining all of the enhanced safety protocols we’ve got in place at the facility to welcome back ASHL gameplay. Here’s the minimum requirements we need to have to start the season:

  • ◾ Latest Possible Start Date: April 4th
  • ◾ Latest Possible End Date: May 20th
  • ◾ Minimum Number of Games: 8

*In this scenario, team fees will be pro-rated based on the number of games that are able to be played as part of the revised Winter ’21 season.

What if the Winter ’21 season is unable to start?

Should it become clear that the minimum requirements for a re-start to the season aren’t viable, the Winter ‘21 season will be cancelled, and we’ll shift our focus to the Summer ’21 season. Any payment credits will automatically be added to a team’s account, and we’ll provide additional instruction to team reps regarding options for their credit should the Winter ‘21 season be cancelled.
