Update (2020-06-23 12:57):
Hello hockey fans,
There’s been lots of chatter about the reopening of facilities, how that will all unfold, and the impact it will have on our beloved game.
As it currently stands, we’ve yet to receive word from the league owners. So, for now, the ARL is still in limbo. As soon as something is formalized and the green light is given we will let you know.
Until then, stay tuned and start getting back in shape for the summer season!
All the best and stay safe out there folks,
The ARL Committee
Update (2020-05-29 22:37): It has been requested that we provide a new update. Sadly, little has changed sine the last item of information we shared almost exactly a month ago.
The federal, provincial and municipal regulations and closures that impacted the Fall/Winter season continue. This will result in, at least, the delay of the Spring/Summer season. As we have noted all along, when we hear any update from the owners of Wave/Stoneridge, we will let everyone know. This relates to potential rebates based on the early end of the Fall/Winter season and refunds or altered registration fees for Spring/Summer.
Everyone who has registered for the summer is on a roster. If the season happens we will take every step to get it up and running as swiftly as possible.
If you registered and would like a refund, please visit the Registrations tab on the My ARL Account page, select your most recent registration, and request a refund (we are currently not enforcing any penalties for refunds). If you did not make an account when you registered, please email us at [email protected] and we will gladly refund you at our earliest convenience.
Further to this point, we need to be understanding. The financial impact this situation is having on Wave/Stoneridge is immense, and their decision making needs to be made very carefully. This speaks to their own financial stability and the safety of those who use their facility. It also has to adhere to federal, provincial and municipal regulations.
This is a very challenging time for everyone. We will all get through this together.

Update (2020-04-30 12:03): All league activities are currently suspended, per the Government of Ontario’s Regulation 82/20. This includes the Spring/Summer 2020 season.
Whether the Spring/Summer 2020 season occurs in a modified form, or is cancelled outright, will depend on the date of which arenas are able to return to normal operations.
Further updates will be provided as they become available.

Hello ARL Players:
Due to this city mandate we have no choice but to follow suit. We will advise of further information. Please bear with us as we work through this rapidly evolving situation.
Earlier today (March 13), the City of Burlington activated its Crisis Management Team (CMT) to coordinate City efforts to protect public and staff from the spread of COVID-19, while maintaining essential City services to the community.
To aid efforts in reducing the spread of the COVID-19 virus in the community, the City of Burlington has made the decision to close all City recreation facilities for a minimum of three weeks, as of this evening.
With the recreation facility closures, the following services will be suspended: March Break programming, arenas, pools and community centres, including the Seniors Centre. A reminder that the City of Burlington will be offering full refunds for Recreation facilities and program registrations (including March Break programs) without any administration charge.
All City organized large public meetings and gatherings are also cancelled, with the exception of Committee and Council meetings at City Hall. The CMT will be reviewing internal City meeting guidelines and issuing an update on Monday, March 16. City Hall will remain open for business with enhanced health and safety protocols for staff.
