Statement on Return to Hockey


As the Canadian Sport School Hockey League prepares to begin its 12th season, ensuring the health and safety of all our student-athletes, coaches, on and off-ice officials, and league staff has been and continues to be our top priority.

We continue to openly communicate with Hockey Canada and the eight provincial and regional members that the CSSHL resides in, while monitoring the local health authority guidelines in each area.

As part of that process, the CSSHL Board of Governors will have an operational meeting in August to ratify the CSSHL’s Return to Play plan.  Once approved, CSSHL’s Return to Play plan will be sent to all eight Hockey Canada members for review, consideration, and feedback.

With provinces across the country starting to announce their back to school plans, our members will be ready to offer approved programming to all student athletes upon their return to school.

We are looking forward to continuing our communications with all the appropriate governing bodies and are excited for our student athletes to be returning to school, training, and games over the course of the 2020-21 school year.
