THE WINTER ’21 SEASON
Your safety is, has been, and will continue to be our top priority.
Let’s talk about how we’re planning to get back on the ice for Winter ’21.
Start Date: We’re targeting February 1st as our start date, based on public health measures permitting gameplay to occur. If we’re unable to start as of the target date, we’ll adjust the target.
Game Count: Our intention is to play an 18-game season, including playoffs.
End Date: If our start date needs to be pushed back, know that our Winter ’21 season will go no later than May 20th. If we’re unable to fit in the 18 games by that date, team fees will be pro-rated.
Deposits: Teams are permitted to use any on-file credits as their registration deposits for Winter ’21.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Let’s try to save you an e-mail and answer some questions about the ASHL this Fall.
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 Saskatchewan Provincial Government 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 in the event of a change in Provincial sport guidelines.
