SUBJECT: HC Seasonal Layout Notice – 2020/21 Season
Hockey Calgary will be doing a review of its league play and seasonal layout with potential changes to be implemented in the 2020-21 season.
We are aware that associations, coaches, parents, and managers book ice on a yearly basis in and out-of-town. Additionally, we understand that arenas often require permit holders to commit to and renew their ice as much as a year in advance.
In our evaluation, we will be looking at the possibility of reducing the length of our seeding round. Due to the scheduling restraints that could arise, Hockey Calgary teams may not be able to receive scheduling windows during the seeding round.
With the potential of future changes, please note the following:
Teams may not be able to participate in a tournament, host a tournament, receive a travel permit, and/or obtain a scheduling window between Oct 16, 2020 and November 30, 2020. Please keep this in mind if you are committing to or booking ice during the fall of 2020.
Further details will be communicated as they are finalized. See you at the rink!!
