    I have been with the Knights of Meaford since inception, and  it has been a privilege to work with the  team.
    Many changes have occurred over the years, however every season demonstrates more  strength and support from our community. We had many players arrive as boys and leave as mature young men due to the support of our terrific billet families, who have welcomed them into their families and their homes.
    Lasting friendships are made with players around the world.

    As our team continues to build and strengthen, so does our need for additional billet families. I would be happy to speak with anyone interested to provide details on billeting.

    My sincere thanks to our billet families for the 2017-2018 season


  • Jason Acres Director of Marketing

    First of all, I would like to thank the Chollet family for giving me the opportunity to work with such an amazing organization. I would also like to take this time to thank our team sponsors and fans.  Working with the Meaford Knights’ allows me to travel around the league and visit other hockey communities.  Without a doubt, the Meaford Knights’ have the strongest sponsor support in the league. I encourage our fans and players to visit and support our sponsors any chance they get. Sponsors are a vital part of our team and we sincerely appreciate everything they do for us.  Whether you’re a season’s pass holder or it’s your first time at the arena, look around the stands and witness the enthusiasm the Meaford Knights’ bring to our community. I guarantee you will be hooked on the excitement.
