Welcome Hockey Pioneers
Due to concerns of the COVID-19 Virus the 2020 Playmakers Tournament has been CANCELED
This is to formally advise you that the Playmakers Hockey Tournament scheduled 24-28 March 2020 in Victoria has been cancelled. This decision is due to the recent update and developments coming from the Public Health Agency of Canada and the World Health Organization with respect to COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Organizations are encouraged to reduce non-essential travel and large gatherings. Since most of our 600 participants need to travel from outside of Vancouver Island and our demographic (over 60 years old) is particularly vulnerable to COVID-19, it is assessed as prudent to follow the recommendations of government medical authorities.
There has been a significant change in the last 24 hours regarding the impact of COVID-19. The World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic. The NBA and NHL have announced the suspension of their season. The CARHA World Cup that was being held in Vancouver later this March is being postponed until 2021. As well, the first case of COVID-19 has been detected on Vancouver Island.
We regret the inconvenience and impact on travel arrangements that this will have on many teams. We hope everyone remains healthy and your teams participate in our next tournament in March 2021.
Playmakers will refund the $1000. team registration fee.
Each Team manager has been notified via email regarding the process for refunds.
