WINTER 5-ON-5 HOCKEY IN NORTH VANCOUVER

New format. Same great league. The Winter ’21 ASHL season hits the
ice this January at North Shore. 🔥

Your safety is our top priority and we’ve modified our rules and processes to prioritize your safety and play within provincial guidelines.

We’ve modified our 5-on-5 format to a free-flowing game with more space, reduced incidental contact, and new penalty thresholds.

You may notice things look a little different at the rink. From physical distancing to reduced amenities, we’re taking progressive action.

COVID-19 FAQ

Let’s try to save you an e-mail and answer some questions about the ASHL Winter ’21 season.

What will modified 5-on-5 rules entail?
We’ve tweaked the game to provide additional distancing on the ice and ensure there’s less incidental contact. Click here to familiarize yourself with some of the changes. 

What is a cohort?
The British Columbia Provincial Government through viaSport has released guidelines for sports that require players to be grouped into cohorts, with the recommendation that players limit the number of sport cohorts to which they belong to one (1). ASHL divisions will be set up in-line with the cohort maximums in place under the provincial guidelines. 

What’s changing at the rink?
All patrons and participants at Canlan Ice Sports locations will notice some changes when they come visit the rink, including reduced amenities. Controls will be in place to provide you with a specified path to the rink you’re playing on, and limit any opportunities to come into contact with another individual without proper physical distancing. With Zone Attendants and Health and Safety Ambassadors on-site, our goal is to provide as safe of an environment as we can.

Do I need to wear a mask while I play?
At this time, wearing a mask is not a requirement for participation, however players will be required to wear a personal mask at all times in the facility, aside from participating directly in an on-ice activity. 

Can we use credits towards league fees this season?
Yes, team reps are welcome to use any credit that may be on-file towards the upcoming season.

What would cause the format or gameplay to change in season?
Participants acknowledge and accept that, if required by a Government or Public Health agency, changes to our format or rules will be considered for implementation in the event of a change in Provincial sport guidelines.

What happens if the season has to stop due to COVID-19?
Please contact Stan for additional information on COVID-19 stoppage scenarios for the upcoming season.

In order to ensure that our operations remain fluid and follow the guidance of government and health agencies, please note that operations, policies, and procedures are always subject to change.
