Responding to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Hockey Canada has decided to cancel all Hockey Canada-sanctioned activities, including the last week of the South Coast Women’s Hockey League regular season and postseason, effective Friday, March 13, 2020.
“Without question, this is an unprecedented period of difficulty for the sports world,” said Hockey Canada chief executive officer Tom Renney, and Scott Smith, president and chief operating officer. “The health and safety of all participants in sport, including players, coaches, staff, officials, fans, family, volunteers and the general public, is of the utmost importance to Hockey Canada.”
The final weekend of the South Coast Women’s Hockey League season would have decided first place, as well as the final playoff position. As a result, scheduled games on Mar. 13-14 will not take place and the SCWHL provincial championship tournament in Hope, BC has been canceled.
