After much deliberation and consultation, the John Reid Memorial Tournament Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the 43rd Edition of the event, originally scheduled for January 14-17th, 2021.
While we always look forward to hosting these elite athletes every year, the safety and welfare of participants, their families; scouts, fans and venue staff must be held paramount. The current COVID-19 situation throughout Canada and the United States, makes safely hosting an event of this magnitude extremely difficult. We appreciate the applications and interest from all teams that have been received to date.
We certainly encourage your associations and clubs to consider attending the next edition, scheduled for January 13-16th, 2022. Planning has begun to make the 2022 event the best yet.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation has caused. We wish all the players, coaches and their families a safe and successful hockey season.
Stay Strong, Stay Safe
The John Reid Memorial Tournament Committee.
