Update - June 2
An update on the 2019-2020 GBHL games - the season remains paused due to the travel restrictions as well as the social distancing measures that are in place. However, there are some positive news of schools beginning to reopen later this month and the easing of border restrictions to Shenzhen. Once these restrictions have been removed and it is safe again to travel, we will restart the GBHL games with a reasonable notice period. Our plan remains the same of completing the season before starting the new season. As we wait to restart this season, we have been actively planning ahead for the 2020-2021 GBHL season. Games will remain on Friday nights and Saturday mornings in Shenzhen. We will be renaming our divisions to align with Hockey Canada - U9, U11 and U13. More information will be announced in the near future. Currently, there is a high degree of uncertainty regarding tournaments around the region due to air travel and countries opening up at different times. As a result, we feel the GBHL will be the only viable elite hockey option available in southern China for at least the first half of the season. We thank you for your patience and support.

Dear Teams, The coronavirus COVID-19 situation has affected everyone’s daily life and at this moment, students in Hong Kong and Shenzhen are still not back at school yet. In this case, the GBHL can only wait until the situation improves before we can re-plan the schedule of the postponed games. The league is fortunate to have a great rink partner in Shenzhen-Coastal City. Their understanding of the situation and with the support of the teams, we will be able to reschedule the GBHL games at a time when it is best for everyone. We will continue to keep all of you updated on the situation. Do keep safe and remember to keep in good hygiene. Thank you for your understanding.

Dear Teams, Players, We are continually monitoring the situation regarding the coronavirus in the Greater Bay area. Yesterday morning, the Secretary for Education in Hong Kong extended school closures until March 16. As a result, we will be postponing the GBHL games that are scheduled in March. These games will be rescheduled once the situation is under control. We hope to get the kids back on the ice playing hockey and being active as soon as possible. However, the safety and health of our young children and youth remain our top priority. We will continue to monitor and review on a 2 week basis and update families accordingly. We thank you for your understanding during this challenging period. Stay Safe!
