The Province of Manitoba has released a proposal for loosening restrictions that could go into effect on Saturday, February 13th 2021. Among the proposed changes, organized outdoor sports are listed.

While we understand that this is an exciting potential development, we would like to remind our members that this change is only a proposal at this time. Even if this proposed change does come into effect on the 13th we would need approval from our governing bodies, Sport Manitoba and Hockey Manitoba, before our teams could hold practices or development sessions at outdoor hockey rinks. Additionally, there will be protocols and guidelines to follow once outdoor activities are permitted to ensure the safety of all participants.

We thank you all for your patience in this matter and for adhering to the regulations in place.

Ian McArton
Executive Director, Hockey Winnipeg
