ARL Activities Suspended (Updated June 23-2020)

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

Hello ARL Captains and Players:

In light of the recommended guidelines from the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) with respect to COVID-19 (coronavirus), the ARL is considering every safeguard to ensure the safety of the participants, officials, volunteers and fans who take part in our great game.

End of Winter 2017-18 – Thank You

Hello ARL Players,

Thank you to the many ARL players who joined us last night at Pub 21 for the party to close out the 2017/18 Fall/Winter season. There are a lot of people to thank for a great event last night and for a fun season.

It all starts with the drop of the puck so we want to say thank to the referees who do such a good job maintaining order and keeping the ARL games running smoothly. Their unique approach also keeps things light (most of the time). The ARL refs are a great group of people and they are truly a part of the league. They are appreciated.

Next, we would like to thank the timekeepers who show up week after week and sit in cold arena to run the clock. It may look easy but they do it well. For many, it is their first job. They are learning as they go and they are doing it for us. We are lucky to have them. A special thanks to Bruce Johnson for coordinating this group.

Championship Night Summer 2017

Hello ARL Players,

As the Spring/Summer 2017 season comes to a conclusion we want to invite you to share in the Championship Night festivities on Friday August 25th.

Please come up to Pub 21 following your game and enjoy some food and drink with your teammates and other ARL players. The five division champion teams will be rewarded with a Pub 21 gift certificate courtesy of The Wave and the ARL Committee.

We are working on a prize table for a raffle and a 50/50 draw. If you have anything to donate to the prize table it would be very much appreciated. Please let me know.

As always we will donate all dollars raised from this evening to a local charity. We will let you know when we determine a beneficiary.

We look forward to seeing everyone there.

Please enjoy your last couple of games and as always keep the ARL spirit in mind while playing.

Thanks,

The ARL Committee
