Is the ORHC Going to Shut Down?
Submitted By Melissa Wolk on Thursday, October 15, 2020
Ranger Families,  

In the past couple of weeks we have seen some significant actions with respect to hockey operations being suspended in our neighboring regions and new mandates and restrictions being imposed by the Provincial Government in Toronto, Peel and Ottawa regions.   

This has understandably been met with many (many) emails and phone calls from our Membership wondering what is going to happen with ORHC programming and will we be suspending our operations as well.


While it is impossible to give a definitive answer, we can say that the ORHC is committed to maintaining its operations and providing programming for as long as it is feasible to do so. The ORHC has access to some of the best hockey instructors and coaches in the Province, as well as some of the most modern facilities. In addition to this, we already have best in class safety protocols in place and insurance coverage with protection against communicable disease (Covid-19) as a member of Hockey Canada. If there is a Club that is going to be in a position to continue operating, it will be the ORHC.


In an effort to be pro-active, the ORHC is currently exploring potential programming models which focus on amplified development for an extended period of time. Models of this nature are common in Europe where the emphasis is on skill development rather than game play. If there are changes to hockey programming as a result of direction from the Provincial Government, the ORHC hopes to continue modified programming where the central focus will be on skill development.


We will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide any updates as they become available.


If you have any questions or concerns, please fee free to reach out to Melissa Wolk, Director of Operations at [email protected]


Stay safe and stay well.
