Coaches Address and Awards - Major Novice Rep.
Submitted By jwatson on Wednesday, April 8, 2020
Major Novice RepThe major novice rep 2019/20 season was filled with fun, excitement and success. 

The season for our 12 boys began on half ice. As we moved through the first half of the season playing half ice hockey the group of boys had some ups and downs for sure. They had games that they played well and games that they struggled but they all kept working hard and working on their skills to better hone their craft. As the half ice season progressed you could tell the group was getting excited for January 15th, the day they could start playing full ice.

Once they boys got to playing full ice hockey they hit their stride. The teams first full ice game was in Brussels. You could tell the team was full of energy in the dressing room prior to the game and they were able to use that energy to come home with an 8-2 victory in their first full ice game of the season. 

Next on the schedule was the Tyler Lopers Memorial tournament in Drayton. The day was an extremely long one for the team as the boys first game was at 8:50am and their final game of the day started at 7:30pm. 

The team had a tournament for the ages! They played West Grey, Drayton and our arch nemesis Mitchell. The boys were able to show off their abilities, determination and HARD WORK as they came away with three 5-1 victories to come home as tournament champions.  

As the full ice season rolled along so did the team, going unbeaten in the WOAA regular season which would put the team in the top division for the WOAA’s year end tournament which would have allowed the boys to compete against the top teams in the novice rep division and to have to opportunity to be named the top novice rep team in all of the WOAA.

Unfortunately the season was cut short do to the covid -19 pandemic which was certainly disappointing but understandable as we want everyone safe and healthy.

All in all the season was a year that won’t be forgot. It was an absolute treat to have the opportunity to coach this group of boys. They all progressed in so many ways as the season went along and I couldn’t be prouder of this group. I would also like to congratulate Cal Nesbitt (7th)and Mason Henderson (9th) for finishing in the top ten in league scoring.

Also I would like to thank everyone else that was involved and made this team such a success. Thank you to Nez, Honda, Schoon and Kim for everything they did this year. Couldn’t ask for a better staff then this group of amazing people.
