Winter 2020-21 On Hold

Hello ARL Players,

While presently we do not have a lot of information to share, we regret to inform you that we are in a position where we will need to pause the season as of Monday November 16th due to provincial and municipal COVID-19 protocols.

Games will be played on Sunday November 15th to finish week 7 of the Fall/Winter schedule.

We do not know how long restrictions will be in place.

When play does resume we plan on extending the season schedule to allow for the number of weeks missed. This would likely result in a shortened summer season.

We will monitor the situation over the next several weeks. Once we have more information to share we will.

We appreciate your patience during this time.

Sincerely,
The ARL Committee
