ADIDAS HOCKEY SUPER SHOWCASE
Dear Registered Participant of the 2022 Adidas Hockey Super Showcase,
We have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the 2022 Adidas Hockey Super Showcase scheduled to run August 5-8, 2022 in Oakville, Ontario. Please know that this was not a decision made lightly and that many things were taken into consideration before getting to this point.
The event has been challenged with many unforeseen circumstances including an impact to the events funding as a result of the current Hockey Canada situation. We are also facing challenges with our US scouts and representatives flying into Toronto Pearson International Airport as a result of flight delays and cancellations. This combined with the continued use of the ArriveCan APP and the reinstatement of random Covid-19 testing for fully vaccinated international travelers has also contributed to the reluctance and hesitation of our US representatives to attend the event in person as originally planned.
Finally, we have been tracking our shipment of jerseys and apparel which were set to arrive this week, however, continue to be plagued by delays. At this point, we are not even certain that the jerseys and apparel will arrive in time for the event.
The Adidas Hockey Super Showcase prides itself on being a first-class event and providing it participants with a professional and rewarding experience. We would rather protect the reputation and integrity of the event than provide an experience that does not live up to our standards and expectations.
We sincerely apologize to our registered participants for making this decision so close to the start of the event. All registered players for the 2022 event will be extended an invite to the 2023 Adidas Hockey Super Showcase. Full refunds will be provided in the coming days.
Thank you again for your commitment to the 2022 AHSS. We hope that you have an enjoyable summer and best of luck in the upcoming 2022-2023 hockey season.
