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.
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."

Goderich Sailors - Leave of Absence
The Goderich Sailors executive voted to ask for a one-year leave of absence from the Western Junior C Hockey League and the Ontario Hockey Association. The request is subject to final approval of the OHA Board of Directors.
The Sailors cited a lack of players as the reason for the request.
This is a decision that was not made in haste. The Sailors have struggled for several years - both with player turnout and competitive success.
The Western Junior C Hockey League, now at six teams, held and dealt with several key issues. Most notable among those issues was a revised schedule as well as a new playoff format.
The league is looking forward to a successful and exciting, albeit amended season, and to the return of Junior C hockey in Goderich in 2014-15.
