About Stratford Rotary Hockey League:
The Stratford Rotary Hockey League is a volunteer-based minor hockey league in Stratford, ON. The SRHL provides House League hockey for over 900 male and female participants in categories of Tyke through Juvenile. The primary rule in the 4-13 age groups is equal playing time regardless of ability. In the Tyke through minor peewee age groups, a buzzer indicates a shift change to ensure equal ice time. In major peewee and up, teams shift on the fly but coaches must also divide the ice time as equally as possible. Younger age groups play with fewer whistles and face offs to give players a chance to be more active and simply enjoy the game. www.stratfordrotaryhockey.com
