Ottawa, ON – The Board of Governors of the Central Canada Hockey League voted unanimously to require all participating players and team personnel to be vaccinated against COVID-19 for the 2021-22 season.
“The last 18 months have been challenging to say the least,” commented CCHL Commissioner Kevin Abrams, “but with the excellent progress in Ontario and vaccination rates above most provinces and other countries, the board felt compelled to ensure the safety and protection of its participants.”
Teams will continue to work closely with their local facilities, municipalities, and health units and follow all community guidelines.
The CCHL enters its 61st consecutive season, continuing to be the longest-running Junior A league in Canada with the Jr. Senators beginning the season on September 24 in Brockville.
