GOJHL Officially Cancels 2020-2021 Season
There will be no 2020-2021 GOJHL season. This was a reality that many anticipated, but now it is official.
The GOJHL has made the difficult and unfortunate decision to cancel the 2020-21 season. There was never ending hope that we would be able to somehow manage a safe and responsible 2020-21 hockey season. However, with the Ontario Government issuing yet another “Stay-at-home” order, effective through at least May 6th, there simply is no way of completing any kind of meaningful season. All recreational facilities have been closed to the public, and most towns or cities are now in the process of taking their ice out.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has been devastating to all Ontarians for so many reasons. Our front-line workers have certainly endured the greatest challenges and losses but our devoted athletes, coaches and staff who live for the game have lost as well,” said GOJHL Commissioner Brent Garbutt.
“At this time, we will focus our attention on planning for a successful return in the 2021-22 season, knowing full-well that we are not yet out of this pandemic and there will be more obstacles to overcome in the future.”
