COVID-19 (Brantford Community Hockey League)


Effective Monday, March 22/2021,  Brantford and Brant County will be moving to the RED CONTROL ZONE.

Unfortunately, this means that all games and practices from March 21 onward will be cancelled.

Season #2 will officially wrap up for all teams this weekend and we will be suspending Season #3 indefinitely.

Please keep checking your emails and our website for more information as we will send out updates as we receive them.  Once we return to a safe zone and are allowed to return to the ice, we will send out information regarding any new guidelines and our plans for Season #3.

We would like to thank each and every one of you for all your patience and understanding during this hockey season!  You have all adapted and followed all the protocols to keep each of us safe and allow the children to play the game we all love for as long as we could!
