Re: GOJHL Showcase 2019-2020

Re: Social Media

Granted owners don't always have much to say in terms of arena ice management, etc. But if Wellands ownership was not to blame for any or all things gone wrong for that team. Why is it that only 1 player from the entire roster from last year has returned? Players usually can't wait to come back and...

Re: 2018/2019 Schedule

It would be interesting to know if this was from a league official or a MYFM employee that does play by play for one of the teams. The original story from last week Curtis Clairmont also mentioned that there are 2 schedules already made out, one for just the 15 GOJHL INC teams and the other with al...

Re: 2018/2019 Schedule

Nothing yet on the league website. With less than a full complement of teams it may just go down as an exhibition tournament and the other teams can do their own tournament whenever/if they see fit. The games shouldn't count in the standings. I am not sure refering to it as a "League Showcase" is t...

Re: 2018-19 Signings

Welland did not go with the Inc so nobody will be paying the unnecessary 750 a player fee. Welland could benefit from this in terms of $ for the owner or players but with the top two teams gone, not sure London can replace the regional rivalry. This is good for fans in Niagara as we can see more of...

Re: GOJHL AGM Today

The only league that I know of off the top of my head that polices this sort of thing is the BCHL. They have no league fees however team fees are optional and are capped at $800. The teams must verify to the league that if team fees are imposed all members paid the same amount. Teams must supply al...

Re: GOJHL AGM Today

I ask again, is this being policed ? Is there a watchdog in the oha that is overseeing who is paying the fee (the kid or the team) or do they even care as long as it is being paid. Is this something that the teams came up with themselves to offset some costs by forcing the boys rich daddy to pay if...

Let's play devil's advocate here. So Welland has come out saying they're not charging anything beyond the $400 for the OHA. It was said above that St Catharines was $1000, probably on top of the $1100 for OHA and GOJHL. You have a kid that's looking at possibly signing with either club. For the sak...

Re: GOJHL AGM Today

Its definitely not a cheap sport for players or owners which is why I find it surprising that the free to play issue keeps getting brought up. The owners need to have deep pockets to keep some these Junior teams alive. The OHL can do it as they have a large fan base but when you draw 200 fans to a g...
