Thorold Athletics

If you’re more of a sports fan than I am, you may find this to be good news.

I went down to the Thorold Arenas Wednesday morning to catch the official announcement of Thorold’s latest sports addition. This October 30 will see the new Thorold Athletics hockey team take the ice against their rivals-to-be, the Hamilton Steelhawks.

Emceed by former St. Catharines MP Walt Lastewka, the announcement was made by a number of hockey officials  and the new team’s owners, Dave Marrone and Rocky Vinditti, former owners of the Thorold Blackhawks junior team. The Athletics area senior team and members of the Allan Cup Hockey League (ACH) which is affiliated with the OHA.

They will be playing 11 home games this year on Friday or Saturday nights. When their website is up and running, you will be able to see the complete schedule there along with other team information, such as ticket and season ticket prices.
