STATEMENT FROM LUG ON COVID-19
A Statement from the Presidents of LUG Hockey Group Inc.
Due to the current situation and climate surrounding the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have made the tough and difficult decision to cancel the 2020 WAG CUP in both Ontario & Nova Scotia.
With over 24 teams expected to travel from across 16 different cities within Canada, we decided it is in the best interests of our players, fans, staff and families to shut down this year’s Finals Tournament. We have consulted with other similar hockey leagues across the GTA and Canada as well as health experts who have instructed us that this is an undesirable but necessary measure.
To all those teams still competing in their local division finals, games playing tonight are still on. As for games slated from Sunday March 15th to Thursday March 19th, we will be sending out an updated notice in the coming days. We will continue to monitor all appropriate channels, including arena and school closures and be vigilant in letting those players still playing know whether or not they have games occurring.
We know this is not the news that everyone was hoping for but we also know it is in the best interests to ensure everyone’s safety at this time.
We will see you at the WAG CUP 2021!
Ethan and Ray
