Mooretown Minor Hockey and Mooretown Flags Celebrate Name Change

sunday december 14, 2014


An official group photo that included Minor Hockey players and Jr. C players and supporting staff was taken Saturday December 13 prior to the Flags game to celebrate the renaming of the Mooretown Minor Hockey formally known as the Storm to Mooretown Jr. Flags.  The official photo will hang at the Mooretown Sports Complex.


"Itís been talked about for a number of years now," Mooretown Minor Hockey President Andrew Vandersteen said about the renaming to Jr. Flags "It brings the community closer together."


Vandersteen feels that the young players will be more involved with having the big M on their jersey just like the older Jr. C team.


"The kids really look up to these guys and I love seeing the kids when they come to the Flags games with their jerseys on banging on the glass and cheering for the team." Vandersteen said


Mooretown is following other Minor Hockey Centres adapting their Jr. C names such as Dresden Jr. Kings, Wallaceburg Minor Lakers and Belle River Jr. Canadiens.


"I have been getting a lot of positive feedback from other centres that teams have traveled to. They love the style the name and the colour." Vandersteen said 


The Mooretown Minor hockey colours were black and yellow but now are red, black and white. The Flags have also added a third black jersey that they wear on the first home game of the month in support of the Jr. Flags.


The Mooretown Jr. Flags Minor Hockey Associations has approximately 320 players registered that includes travel teams, girls teams and houseleague teams.  The association is a member of the OMHA and travel teams compete in the Tri-County and Shamrock Leagues.
