Wow! What a weekend Sailors!
Over the past weekend there were many games played both home and away.  Our record for the weekend was an impressive 8-3-1 from Friday to Sunday.  Way to go Sailors!

A few updates to mention.....



Mark Vergeer has decided to step down from his role as President.  Mark was an instrumental part of the executive team as we navigated the complexity & completion of the 1 year shared boundary agreement.  At this time I would like to thank Mark for his contributions and time to Port Stanley Minor Hockey Association. 


I would also like to introduce myself, my name is Richard Lalonde and I have been voted into the President role. I have been a member of the executive team for the past 4 years as Director of Sponsorship.  As an organization we are extremely lucky to have a great group of parents on the executive team who dedicate their time and efforts to improving PSMHA. Please join me in thanking the executive members for all that they do.




Please remember to sign up. Volunteers play a crucial role in making PSMHA a great place to play.  Volunteer opportunities are available through our volunteer Sign-up page which can be accessed by:
