Wooster rebrands with new name but same great hockey

At the regularly scheduled board meeting held July 29, 2019 at the Alice Noble Ice Arena the WYHA board and its members unanimously voted to accept a new logo and team name going into the 2019/20 season. The group felt that changing the name from the Wooster Blades to the Wooster Oilers brought the Wooster youth program more into alignment with the high school and juniors teams at ANIA. 

This strategic alignment between all of the programs will help increase participation and recognition between all of the programs. Increasing attendance at the Junior Oiler games as well as giving all of our youth players a goal for their hockey future. Committees are working diligently on spirit wear and marketing opportunities.

A fundraiser for tournament fees and new uniforms is being held this Saturday, August 3 at St. Mary's Church in Wooster. See our FaceBook page for more information.
