Partners In Safety

The Mount Forest Patriots are thrilled to partner with the Guelph Wellington Emergency Services to form "PARTNERS IN SAFETY".

The program is designed to reward our youth who practice good safety skills while riding their bikes, skateboards, crossing the street, etc.  Our paramedics in the Mount Forest, Harriston and Arthur areas will carry Partners in Safety passes while on duty.  When they observe a young person practicing good safety skills they will reward them with a pass which is valid for a Patriot home game.  We look forward to seeing these recipients at our games.

Bulldogs Host Successful Hockey Day in Kincardine

This past weekend, the Nicol Insurance Kincardine Bulldogs held their annual day-long event in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Movember movement to raise awareness to men’s health issues such as prostate cancer.

The event saw Minor hockey games throughout the day with the Wingham Minor Hockey Association graciously agreeing to participate in the event culminating with a Western Jr. “C” league game between the Wingham Ironmen and the Bulldogs. The Bulldogs donned specially designed pink jerseys donated by two local businesses, Canadian Tire and Presto Crest that will be auctioned off through a silent auction for the months of October and November. Proceeds will go the Canadian cancer society. Auction items including the game jerseys can be seen on the Bulldogs’ face book page or by sending an email to silentauction@jrcbulldogs.ca. Bids will be accepted until November 30th when the winners of each item will be announced.

Goderich Returns To The Western Jr C League

 

CAMBRIDGE, ON – The Ontario Hockey Association (OHA) is pleased to announce that the Goderich Sailors Junior C Hockey Club is back after their year of absence and will participate in the 2014-15 season. They will now be known as the Goderich Flyers.

At the April 16th OHA Board of Directors Meeting the Board approved the Goderich Sailors re-entry into the Association.

"It is great to have Goderich back competing in the OHA," said OHA Chief Executive Officer Scott Farley. "This is due to tireless efforts of a number of people in the community who wanted to have OHA junior hockey back in Goderich. We look forward to a great partnership with the team and the community."

Beginning next season, the Sailors will play in the Western Junior C League, becoming the seventh team.

"We want to give the players the right tools to succeed on the ice and more importantly in their lives," said Sailors President Jim Gorloff. "We’re a new group who want the community of Goderich to be proud of their team for years to come."

Originally the Sailors cited a lack of players as the reason for the request for a one-year leave of absence from the OHA. With new staff taking over, the hope is they’ll be able to keep local players in their lineup for the foreseeable future.

"We’re happy to have them back," said Western Junior C League Convenor Steve Coulter. "To have them as the seventh team is great for our league. They’re ownership group are heading in the right direction and we’ll certainly help to assist them any way we can."

For more information on the Goderich Sailors re-entering the OHA Western Junior C League please contact OHA Development Coordinator Stephen Boscariol through email sboscariol@ohahockey.org
