2020-21 Season Structure of Teams
Submitted By Web Admin on Saturday, April 11, 2020
Due to the uncertainties created by the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic the Hamilton Huskies 2020-21 team structure is yet to be finalized.

Continuous virtual meetings are taking place working to create a number of contingency plans from Hockey Canada, the OHF and ALLIANCE Hockey right down through to our organization.

Of course, as the health experts convey to us on a regular basis, the time line is totally dependant on the virus.




With this in mind the Hamilton Huskies are hoping to have as close to a final lineup of teams as possible in place on or shortly after the 26th of April.

As well it is hoped that we will be able to begin announcing successful coach applicants for AA and MD teams at this time.

Once a date is announced that we can begin sanctioned programming we will begin to move forward. Part of this will be dependant on the availability of facilities but we trust that they will get up and running as expeditiously as possible.

Tryouts will be scheduled and the numbers attending will also be a factor in the end to determine the exact structure and number of teams.

Once teams are selected there will be challenges to getting the season up and running.

Some of the potential challenges:
Tryouts will have to fall in line with the OHF guidelines governing all of hockey, unsure of actual start date
Team Jerseys will be a challenge for Niko to have ready, generic jersey numbers may have to be utilized for one season, no selection of personal/favourite numbers
Association and ALLIANCE Registrars will be under pressure to get rosters approved in a very short time frame
Schedules may be shortened and the season may be extended by a short time.
Earlybird Tournaments will most likely disappear for this season
Number of allowed tournaments per team could be reduced for this season to help schedulers get league games in

Please be patient and accept that life as we know it will be different for at least the upcoming season.

At this time just focus on things that are of the utmost importance, Staying Home, Staying Safe and taking care of family.
