President’s Message

Welcome Back Everyone!

The Stratford Hockey Club would like to welcome everyone back as we prepare for another season of exciting Junior Hockey in the Greater Ontario Hockey League featuring our very own Stratford Warriors. After missing a year of hockey due to COVID-19 we look forward to the 2021-2022 season starting on September 24, 2021.

We are very proud of our hockey club and the strong tradition it brings to our community and our loyal fans. We have a lot of history in the William Allman Memorial Arena and are looking forward to having another exciting and successful Stratford Warrior hockey team for the 2021-2022 season.

We look forward to working with our new Director of Hockey Operations, Jason Clarke, and his General Manager Nick Parr and Assistant General Manager Mark Nelson. All three have been working very hard to build another strong Stratford Warrior team. I would like to wish these gentlemen all the best in their new roles.

We welcome back our returning coaching staff: Dave Williams, Mike McLeod, Dave Schlitt, Mark Nelson and Mike Graham.

This coming season we have several star players returning and an some new young talent — it should be an exciting season. The returning players are looking forward to the task ahead and will share their experiences with the new players. Our team will continue to be involved in local community events and lead by example.

The Warriors appreciate the continued support of their passionate fans. We want fans to be part of our journey towards another championship cup — welcome back after missing a year of exciting hockey!

We also look forward to continuing to develop our players for their next steps in life, both in hockey and in their long term careers.

On behalf of the Stratford Warriors Hockey Club Board of Directors I would like to thank all our volunteers, corporate partners and loyal fans who are truly invested in our success. You are the energy that drives our team and without your support our season would not be possible.

Financially it takes a lot to run the Stratford Hockey Club. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our fans who attend games, supporters, sweater sponsors, ice sponsors, power play and penalty kill sponsors and other businesses that support our hockey club.On behalf of the Stratford Warriors Board of Directors, players and staff I would like to thank our loyal fans — the best fans in all of Junior B hockey!
