As you are well aware, the world is battling with the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).  As responsible citizens, it’s safe to say that all of us need to be aware of proper personal protective hygiene. 

Many of our spring/summer programs will commence in the next month or so, but as many of you are aware municipalities have closed operations until April 5 and then will supply updates for the local community.

In Canada, we do have the advantage of being supported by the public health system, but it will take all of us as individuals to practice proper hygiene habits to flatten to curve and halt the progression of this infectious disease.

The NBHAC will, however, continue to monitor and assess the situation as well as the recommendations of Provincial Health Units and with the actions of the Municipal Facility operator in curtailing or cancelling operations at the community centres and arenas.

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19): Outbreak update


An outbreak of pneumonia (called 2019 Novel Coronavirus, 2019-nCoV, or COVID-19) broke out in Wuhan China in late 2019. The situation is being closely monitored by the Public Health Agency of Canada. Status of public health risk to Canadians is updated on this web page.

Thank you for keeping everyone healthy.

The World Ball Hockey Federation will be returning to Nitra which will host the 2020 Men’s and Women’s Championships the week of June 20-27.


Nitra is one of the oldest town settlements in Slovakia.  The Nitra Castle is the most visited monuments and the upper town is comprised of a harmonious group of particularly well-preserved historical buildings, the Franciscan Church, burgher houses and art gallery.  A permanent exhibition at the Nitra Museum shows the history of the city, its surrounding areas and Slovakia. The Nitra State Gallery, the Gallery of the Young, and the Art Gallery present Slovakian works as well as temporary exhibitions by foreign artists. The cultural life in Nitra is very rich.

The areas around Nitra provide several interesting activities. A hiking path will take you to Zobor Peak (588 meters), from the top of which is a lovely view of this wine growing region. The region of Nitra attracts visitors by its protected natural riches and the national natural reserve at Zobor and the one at Lukpa are home to numerous species of animals and plants. The forest of chestnut trees in Jelenska Gastanica is particularly interesting to discover.

WBHF President, Domenic Di Gironimo, “the city of Nitra will be a wonderful home for the participants of the 2020 World Championships” he continued, “this will be a wonderful opportunity for Russia (Women’s) and the Czech Republic (Men’s) to defend the championships they won in 2018 in Russia.”
