1995/96 South Stormont Novice Selects
In 1995/96, the Novice Selects had a year that most teams can only dream of. In their regular season, they claimed the Upper Canada Eastern Division Championship by going undefeated in a round robin playoff format, winning four of their seven games by shutouts. They then went on to capture the Upper Canada League Championship by defeating the Kingston Township Titans 4-1 and 4-1 in a four point total playoff format.
The Selects were formidable on the tournament circuit as well, winning seven of the eleven tournaments they participated in. A win at the Regional Silver Stick Tournament qualified the Selects to compete at the North American Silver Stick Championship Tournament in Michigan, which featured the winners of all regional tournaments across North America. In Michigan, the Selects won 4 out of 5 games, losing 3-2 in the final to Strathroy, Ontario to win the North American Novice Silver Stick Finalist Trophy. The Selects also captured the championship at the Dollard des Ormeaux Novice tournament, Canada's largest novice tournament, with over 150 teams.
Five team members went on to play at a Junior 'A' level or higher, including Todd Perry, Brock McBride, Brett Liscomb, Tyler Maxwell and Cory Gove. Other team members were Addison Pelkey, Liam Tyrell, Matthew Walsh, Colin Mackler, Michael Crawford, Richard Boileau, Cameron McPherson and Stefan Guindon.
The Selects were coached by Harold McBride. Ben Guindon was assistant coach, and Bob Liscomb was team manager.
