W.O.A.A. Seniors cancel 2020/2021 season
The impact of the COVID-l9 outbreak has created a unique situation that is still evolving. The Western Ontario Athletic Association (WOAA) continues to work with its senior hockey committee and participating senior hockey teams to prepare for the return to regular competition.
However, the WOAA senior hockey membership held its annual meeting on Sept. 24 and at that time a motion was moved, seconded and carried “that collectively as members of the WOAA Senior Hockey League a decision was made that there would be no playing season for 2020-2021 hockey season. It will be the responsibility of each member team to remit their 2020-202I insurance premium and the WOAA registration fee.”
The WOAA senior hockey records show that the program began in 1948-1949 and has run continuously for 72 hockey seasons. Officials are hopeful that 2021-2022 will see the return of regular competition in our Senior Hockey League.
At this time, the WOAA would like to take this opportunity to thank all its senior hockey participants, team officials, game officials, executives, league sponsors, fans and valued volunteers for their past and present support.
