It's Hockey Season Sailors!!

GMHI is providing one pair of hockey socks to each player this season.  
First pair of socks is free, any additional pairs needed will be at a cost of $25

All players 
(even if your player does not plan to tryout for the rep teams) in U11 to U18 are asked to pick up their socks on Sunday September 10th between 230-730pm.  
Those unsure of sizing should bring along their shin guards to try on at the arena.  GMHI issued socks are part of the Goderich Sailors uniform and players are expected to wear them for all games.

Players in U9 and below will receive a jersey/socks at the beginning of the season from the season at their first ice time.

Saturday August 26th and Sunday August 27th - hosted by GMHI with assistance from the Goderich Deckhands and the Goderich Jr C Flyers.

All registered players in U13 and U15/U18 are offered a body checking clinic before tryouts on September 9th.  
All those wishing to play rep who have not previously attended a body checking clinic are strongly encouraged to attend before tryouts.  Please see website calendar for times.
There is no additional charge for this clinic, however registration via HCR is required.
