Alberta Roller Hockey Statement - Status of the 2021 Season

March 24, 2021

After the AGM in February, AMRHA and its member leagues decided to move forward with a modest plan to allow the simplest scenario to getting play resuming. Various leagues drew up models for start dates and length of seasons so they are ready to act when Alberta Health Services allows youth/adult sports to proceed.

The following decisions were made at the AGM to create the easiest format to begin play

  • Halt all inter provincial travel for 2021, no sanctioned tournaments or events
  • All officials training would be completed online
  • Team Alberta Travel Program will only move forward for 2021 if certain criteria are met
  • Leagues to communicate start dates and planning with their membership and continue to update them
  • Plan for cohort groups of 50 participants or less, but remain flexible for AHS guidelines
  • No hard date to announce season cancellations 

We will continue to adapt and learn from the current restrictions and our past experiences from 2020. Two leagues managed to resume Roller Hockey Activities in the late summer of 2020 while having no cases of COVID-19. Edmonton Inline ran a 6 team cohort group consisting of Junior and Adult players from late July to early September. The Alberta Pro League ran a full Showcase tournament in August consisting of 3 teams (Fort Saskatchewan Wolfpack, Red Deer Reign and Sherwood Park Archers)

 

Update: April 6, 2021

With an uptick in COVID-19 variants around the province, Alberta Health Services moved the province back to Step 1 for the path forward. This action will cause league start dates to move back even further than previously planned. AMRHA will look to host a provincial meeting in early May to discuss the next steps based on the information at that time.
