New format. Same great league. The Fall 4-on-4 season at York
hits the ice on September 28th. But hurry, once the spots are gone, they’re gone.

Your safety is our top priority and we’ve modified our rules and processes to show that. ASHL leagues in Ontario will also comply with Provincial Stage 3 guidelines for sports, including participant cohorts.

We’ve modified our 4-on-4 format to create more space in the offensive zone, a free-flowing game, and additional measures that prioritize safety and reduce incidental contact.

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

Let’s try to save you an e-mail and answer some questions about the ASHL this Fall.

What will modified rules entail?
Our Fall ’20 4-on-4 rules will be similar to our modified Summer 4-on-4 rules and will be available on ASHL.ca. In lieu of one game official for the Summer ’20 season, two (2) referees will officiate games during the Fall ’20 season.

What is a cohort?
The Ontario Provincial Government has released guidelines for Stage 3 that permit a maximum of (50) participants per mini-league, or in our case, per division. In compliance with these guidelines, ASHL teams will be grouped into four (4) team divisions, and permitted to have a maximum of (12) participants per team. The ASHL will continue to monitor any guideline changes and adapt as necessary should there be forthcoming changes during the Fall ’20 season.

What’s changing at the rink?
All patrons and participants at Canlan Ice Sports locations will notice some changes when they come back to the rink, including reduced amenities that are available. 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 in jurisdictions where mask orders are in effect, players will be required to wear a personal mask at all times 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.

What happens if the season has to stop due to COVID-19?
Please contact Paul 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.
