WELCOME TO THE STRATFORD WARRIORS

THE STRATFORD HOCKEY CLUB
WELCOMES JASON CLARKE,

The Stratford Warriors are pleased to announce the hiring of Jason Clarke as their new Director of Hockey Operations.  Jason brings a new outlook to the Stratford Warriors and a wealth of hockey knowledge from his background coaching both boys and girls minor hockey and his former involvement with the Stratford Cullitons.  Additionally, Jason has experience as a scout for the Stratford Warriors and the Sudbury Wolves of the OHL.
Jason served as President for the Stratford Aces and on the Coaches Selection Committees for both the Stratford Aces and Huron Perth Lakers.  We look forward to working with Jason and sharing his vast knowledge of the game.

GEORGE VAN SLYCK REMEMBERED

On Feb 5/21, the Stratford Warriors/ Cullitons lost a dedicated and respected Board Member, George Van Slyck. George was a valued member who was there to help and work on any projects to support the Stratford Hockey Club. George was well respected within the community and always had time to talk with you whether it was family, hockey or education. George would share all kinds of hockey stories about his beloved Warrior/Culliton teams. He was also dedicated to his family as a husband, father and grandfather  and would always chat about his family. When I joined the Board, George was always there to direct and give advice to support you. You would find George in his regular seat supporting his favorite team. Before games, you would find George by the dressing room and in the front lobby sharing his thoughts and stories. When I took over as the Billeting Chair, George was in charge of education and had everything down to a tee. We all learned a lot from George. When George was in the hospital, he would call to make sure that all players that needed educational support were look after. That was the kind of person George was. To Dianne, Katie and Gillian and families, we send our sincere  condolences on behalf of the Stratford Warrior Hockey Club. George will be missed by all. RIP.
— Jamie Nigro, President, Stratford Hockey club
