The 2014 Provincial Coy Cup Champions, the Williams Lake Stampeders, are hosting try-outs each Tuesday and Thursday during the month of September.
Each new season, all players have to try-out for the team again, just as all of the Stampeder executives are re-elected annually. The age of the players currently range from 35 years old to players as young as 18 years old, though parents can authorize players under 18 years of age to try-out and play in the Central Interior Hockey League, as well.
WL Stampeders President Marko Zurak, who has been on the Board of Directors for 15 years and has been President of the society since 2009, says of how the 2014-15 team is coming together, "We have such a high calibre of players. They sincerely get along well and they play for each other," adding that says something about the character of the individuals.
