ASHL UPDATE: Oakville

Updated: November 16th, 2020

OAKVILLE, ONT. — On Friday November 13th, the Ontario Provincial Government announced a revised framework for COVID-19 restrictions that included Halton Region being moved into the red tier of the Province’s COVID-19 response framework, which restricts sports from being able to engage in scrimmages or gameplay.

Due to these restrictions, the ASHL Fall ’20 season and ASHL Rivals Tournament Series are currently on pause as we continue to monitor the public health situation and assess our ability to restart the season should Halton Region be moved back into the orange tier.

Additional information will be communicated to participants as it becomes available, and we certainly appreciate your patience in the meantime. Please refer to the FAQ’s below for further assistance regarding any questions you might have.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long will Halton Region remain in the red tier?
The Provincial Government is constantly reviewing public health data and making decisions regarding the status of each region in its COVID-19 response framework. At this point there is no way of knowing how long Halton Region will stay in the red tier, as any move to the orange tier would be contingent on improved public health metrics being in place.

What happens if we’re able to resume the season?
In the event that Halton Region moves into the orange tier, every effort will be made to restart the ASHL Fall ’20 season in Oakville as quickly as possible. Contingent on when such a move to the orange tier may occur, the number of games that could be played prior to the end of the calendar year would be assessed as part of the decision-making process, with the total game count being reduced from the original number of guaranteed games in the season. In the event of a resumption of the season, the following scenarios shall apply based on team fees paid:

▪ 75% or more of guaranteed games played: The team shall receive a credit based on the team fees paid to date, and the number of guaranteed games the team had completed at the time of cancellation.
Less than 75% of guaranteed games played: The team shall receive their choice of a credit or a refund based on the team fees paid to date, and the number of guaranteed games the team had completed at the time of cancellation.

What if we’re unable to resume the season?
If the ASHL Fall ’20 season in Oakville cannot be resumed, the following cancellation scenario shall apply:

▪ 75% or more of guaranteed games played: The team shall receive a credit based on the team fees paid to date, and the number of guaranteed games the team had completed at the time of cancellation.
Less than 75% of guaranteed games played: The team shall receive their choice of a credit or a refund based on the team fees paid to date, and the number of guaranteed games the team had completed at the time of cancellation.
