PAST INFORMATION

Tuesday March 17 Announcement 

The cancellation of the annual Leaside Wildcats tournament was not the way any of us expected the hockey season to end. As with all associations, the decision by Hockey Canada and the OWHA has created more questions than answers. Our association is working on refund and/or fee adjustment policies that stretch the length of our programming, from the tournament, Learn to Play, competitive, house-league, and even skill coaches and officials. It is not an easy task and we appreciate your patience. Many details are under investigation, including payments for contracted private tournament ice and other expenses which may or may not be refunded to TLGHA in light of COVID-19. We are targeting the end of the month or early April at the latest to communicate how we will handle potential refunds and the process of distributing such.

This is a much larger societal issue. What has happened over the past couple of months has had an impact on people's health and their careers. Our thoughts go out to those individuals. When it comes to ending the season the way it was, it really hits home to our high school seniors who are graduating from the OWHA Midget and Junior divisions. They did not get to see their last month of hockey in the way they thought they would.

Please forward any questions to treasurer@torontoleasidewildcats.ca

Mark Schrutt, President, TLGHA

 

Thursday March 12 Announcement

 

Out of caution and to protect the health of players and families, we are announcing the cancellation of our annual March tournament. This decision was not an easy one for our Association. As of this afternoon, the full intention was to proceed.  We have been relying on daily information from various public health officials, including the OWHA, Health Canada and the Ontario Ministry of Health, and Toronto Health.

 

As you can appreciate, COVID-19 has escalated to the point where events such as our pose potentially a greater risk than the enjoyment we get from playing or watching our kids play hockey. We have no reason to believe that it will get better or be less concerning over the coming days.

 

The annual Wildcat auction and raffle, though, will continue online at www.givergy.ca/LeasideWildcats (the auction closes at 6 on Saturday).

 

While we do have a formalized refund policy covering situations such as this that are out of control, our objective is to provide fair and equitable refunds. It will take some time to figure this out, so please bear with us, we will be in touch next week. For anyone who has made hotel reservations, please contact the hotel directly regarding your bookings.

 

Mark Schrutt

President, TLGHA

 

As of Thursday 1PM the tournament is still moving forward - Any Updates will be found on this front main page  

We are also monitoring the potential City workers situtation

This tournament is the go-to event in girl’s hockey and acts as the ideal jumping off point to championship weekends that follow in the latter part of March. We want you to be part of the weekend and help make it an event to remember.

It’s great to kick off March Break with a visit to Toronto. In addition to a four game guarantee of great hockey in all divisions, rep and DS, your team can also take in all that the City has to offer – great food, great shopping and attractions including the Hockey Hall of Fame, CN Tower, and The Royal Ontario Museum.
