TBWHA is excited to announce that we are now accepting Scholarship Applications for graduating players. Please review the application form and submit applications prior to May 31, 2021.
Dear TBWHA Players, Parents and Guardians:
After much discussion and close monitoring of the current Covid-19 numbers in Thunder Bay, in addition to the information provided by the Thunder Bay District Health Unit, the Executive Core Board has decided to cancel any further TBWHA programming in the 2020-21 hockey season. The current city-wide lockdown is extended until the end of March. There is also no guarantee of reopening in April, as Covid-19 numbers remain very high.
Furthermore, in the current COVID-19 state that the Province of Ontario is in, all tryouts (Queens, Fury, etc) for the 2021-22 season will be delayed, until further notice. We will continue to monitor the OWHA protocols for updates or any changes. Further discussion is required within TBWHA on the planning of tryouts (formation on teams, coach selection, etc) once OWHA protocols allow a return to play framework. We will keep everyone informed as plans develop.
TBWHA is hopeful that the 2021-22 hockey season can resemble much more the type of hockey season that we know and love. We desperately want to see normal five on five hockey taking place at all levels, while forming our competitive and recreational teams. At this point, we do not know how much the pandemic will impact our upcoming hockey programming. We need to accept that some things will be different then we are used to. There will be a lot of variables that are out of our control. As things progress throughout the spring and summer, our plans and hurdles will become more clear. As TBWHA has done for the 2020-2021 season, we remain to work hard to be prepared and to provide every female hockey player the best possible hockey experience in 2021-22.
We thank you for your continued support and patience.
