West Ottawa executives are saddened to have to share this news, but our fall program has been paused effective October 15th.
The decision was made based on the new restrictions announced yesterday by the City of Ottawa. The restrictions for arenas only allow for 10 participants on the ice (including coaches) and no spectators allowed within the facilities. These restrictions affect not only our association, but all on-ice sports within the City of Ottawa.
West Ottawa executives are working on a formal communication for all their current members, that will be sent out prior to October 19th, with further details in regards to this pause. Please stay tuned!
We are aware that this news is very difficult for our ringette community, including coaches, players and ringette families, but rest assured that during this time, West Ottawa executives are working hard to make sure that our return to ringette is done smoothly and safely for all WORA families.
