message from president
STRATHROY-CARDOC YOUTH HOCKEY (SCYH) is a youth, non contact recreational hockey league. The philosophy and goals are simple, all participants regardless of skill level are given the same opportunity including equal ice time to learn the skills of hockey, play the game, be part of a team and have fun. Since the league’s inception in 2000, SCYH has grown from 36 players and 2 teams the first year into a house league of 352 players and 22 teams. The league includes ages from 5 to 17 year olds. It is a mixed league with both boys and girls playing together. The games are once a week, for an hour and half, a 20-30 minute practice and then an hour game. The older players 14 and up play on Friday evening with the younger teams playing on Saturday, anywhere from 7:00am to 7:00pm. The teams are rotated through the time slots, changing from week to week to allow everyone equal opportunity to play at their favorite time. The league supplies goalie equipment, team jerseys (collected at the end of the season) for each team. The league also has a season year end event/party and each participant receives a trophy. This organization is run by volunteers, including the referees. It is expected that all participants will be respectful of team mates, coaches, referees etc. As president and founder of this organization my goal was and is that every child has the opportunity to have fun while learning the game of hockey, in an encouraging, positive environment.
