If you’re reading this,  you’re a valued member of our Canlan Sports community. 🙌

It’s been a trying and difficult year for all of us. We’ve missed time with friends and loved ones, we’ve sacrificed, and we continue to do what’s right to put COVID-19 behind us.

While we’re excited to have dropped the puck at our Illinois locations, restrictions on gameplay across Canada mean we’re going to have to wait a little bit longer before we’re safely drop the puck on the YHL season north of the border.

As we continue to adapt to this ever-changing environment, we’ve developed three scenarios for targeted start dates at each of our locations for the YHL ’21 season. Our goal is to ensure that you’ve got the clarity you need, and that when we have the green light, we’ll be ready.

Continue to scroll below and use the accordion to find your region, and the start date scenarios that apply.

Stay safe in the meantime, and when the time is right, we can’t wait to see you back on the ice!

🏒  How it Works: There will be one (1) YHL season in 2021. The format will be 5-on-5. The YHL will play through the third week of September given that the tradional fall/winter minor hockey season is not starting until October.

WINNIPEG

📍  Locations: Winnipeg

🚧  Where We’re At: Manitoba is currently in the Red Tier of the Province’s COVID-19 response, which does not permit sports gameplay at this point in time. That being said, our Winnipeg location remains open for youth on-ice programs and rentals during this period, with participation limits. We continue to work closely with Provincial Health Authorities as we await the green-light to resume gameplay.

🏒  How it Works: Each of the three (3) scenarios below are built around target start dates, which require a green-light from a Government jurisdiction. Why are we building out these scenarios? In short, we want to provide you with clarity about how the Summer could shape up, depending on how long restrictions are in place. Our primary goal is to safely get back on the ice as soon as we’re able to do so, and we want to ensure our season structures are adaptive to the ever-changing situation around us.

*Please note that teams may be required to play two games in a week, or a double-header in order to facilitate the completion of the schedule in-line with the scenarios outlined below.
