News: OVGA Intersectionals Cancelled

This perennial favourite club competition has been around for over 60 years. For those club members who qualify to make the team, it is a “badge of honor” to wear the club team shirt and represent their club in this great event. Unfortunately, for this year, regions across Ontario and Quebec, including the OVGA, have made the difficult decision to cancel their Intersectionals. It was not a decision that was made lightly or without considerable debate. In the end, the health and safety for all involved were the primary factors driving this decision. Other factors influencing our decision-making were: club policies regarding the hosting of outside tournaments; clubs’ ability to field full teams; players’ comfort level; and the impact that current protocols would have on the team aspect of the event. All 2020 club standings will be carried into 2021, and we look forward to a spirited competition next season.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at admin@ovga.org should you have any questions.
