As the COVID-19 isolation continues, the country’s national regulatory body for hockey encourages players and fans of the game to stay connected.
All leagues under the auspices of Hockey Canada shut down in mid March as part of virus containment measures, later cancelling their respective seasons. This left many players with unfinished campaigns while fans suddenly found themselves without their favourite sport to watch.
Hockey Canada has launched a number of efforts to keep the sport in people’s minds during this time. Amongst the initiatives is a campaign to encourage players and fans to share photos on Twitter and/or Instagram, tagging posts with the hashtag #makehockeymore
The sports body has also shared a list of recommended hockey-related books.
They also have virtual backgrounds (graphic files) that can be downloaded and used as your computer desktop background or for video conferencing. Check out the Hockey Canada offerings here.
With schoolchildren having to learn from home, Hockey Canada has created a number of educational lessons for use with kids in Kindergarten through Grade 6. New activities are being added weekly.
