Please see the latest statement from Ringette Alberta regarding the 2019/20 Ringette Season:
"Given the extraordinary circumstances that have recently unfolded, earlier today, Ringette Alberta made the decision to cancel all sanctioned events until further notice. In response to our membership, we are providing the following additional information.
Earlier today, the Ringette Alberta Board of Directors re-convened with information that was not available when our initial decision to hold provincials was made. With this new information Ringette Alberta cancelled all sanctioned events.
The initial decision to proceed with the Provincial championships was based on Alberta’s Chief Medical Officers’ statement and prescriptive guidelines made on Thursday, March 12, 2020.
At 5:00 PM MDT today, Ringette Canada communicated its decision to cancel the Canadian Ringette Championship and all other Ringette Canada sanctioned events and recommended to is Members (provincial ringette associations) to do the same.
Ringette Alberta sanctioned events that have been cancelled include, but may not be limited to:
We will review the financial and other implications of these cancellations and will engage in two-way communication with our Members and stakeholders.
We appreciate your understanding of this rapidly changing situation. We will continue to closely monitor all COVID-19 developments in consultation with relevant public health authorities and other governing bodies to provide updates as they become available."
