ASHL UPDATE: Lower Mainland Locations

November 20th, 2020

VANCOUVER, B.C. — The Province of British Columbia’s Provincial Health Officer (PHO), Dr. Bonnie Henry, announced the introduction of new public health measures that took immediate effect as of 12:01 a.m. on November 19th.

These restrictions enable gameplay to occur within the Province, however, restrictions on travel remain in effect for the purposes of prospective participants travelling to play sports. To that effect, the ASHL is working closely with Public Health officials and viaSport with respect to these travel restrictions and how they may impact our ability to resume the ASHL Fall ’20 season.

As such, the ASHL Fall ’20 season at our Burnaby (Scotia Barn), Langley, and North Vancouver locations remains on hold while we seek to clarify additional information about these restrictions. Updates will continue to be made available through ASHL.ca as more information becomes available.

In the meantime, please reference our frequently asked questions below.
