2020 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
WBHF COVID-19 Corona Virus Update
March 26, 2020
First and foremost, we hope you and your family are well and staying safe.
The WBHF Board of Directors met with the cities and organizing committees of our 2020 Events and established a plan together resulting of the world outbreak of the Covid-19 virus.
The health and safety of everyone in our sport is of the utmost priority for the WBHF.
The WBHF is officially postponing all summer events to 2021, including World Championships for Juniors (Finland) and Seniors (Slovakia).
We are fortunate to have great hosting partners and we thank them for their preparation work for 2020. It is our hope that we can schedule the same locations in 2021. You can expect announcements over the coming months.
With regards to the WC Juniors, all players who were to participate this year will retain their eligibility in 2021. In other words, the age groups will change to U15, U17, U19, U21 and Girls U21.
A decision on the Masters Championships in Niagara Falls will be made at a later date pending the updates provided by Health Canada.
Later this year, we will be in Orimattila, Finland for our 3-on-3 World Championship. It will be a time for reflection and hopefully of celebration of our sport.
We thank you all for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented period of global concern.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
