Clippers Post Strong Results Heading Into Play-Offs
With less than three weeks remaining in the regular season, the 21 Rep/Select Clipper teams have posted outstanding results as a collective group. 

Overall, 16 of the 21 Clipper teams have a winning % of .500 or better, which translates to a collective winning % of .571 for our Association Rep. Program. 

When we look closer, our 2 Select teams (Tyke C and Tyke A Super 7's) have a combined win % of .537, while our AE teams combined win % has dropped just below .500 and now sits at .470.  Our A teams continue to perform the strongest with a .669 win %.  The win % for our younger teams (Minor Peewee & below) is .531, while our older teams (Peewee through Juvenile) have a .604 win %.   

From a broader perspective, in comparison to other A/AE centres in which we compete against, and in the 19 levels from Tyke Super 7's through to Midget A, Barrie continues to have the best results overall when looking at the percentage of their teams with a win % of .500 or greater.  88% of their teams are above this threshold.  Stouffville comes next with 74% of our teams at .500 or greater.   Other centres line up as follows: Aurora (61% above 0.500); Markham (59%); Richmond Hill (47%); Newmarket (44%); East Gwillimbury (29%).
This is a terrific result for Stouffville, and our entire group of coaches and staff should be commended, whether they are above or below.  In the end, stats are only one measure of a successful season - there are many more that make it memorable for the players, parents and staff. 

As we head into the busy play-off season, I want to thank all of our players, coaches, staff, parents and volunteers for making this a very successful season thus far.  Your dedication, enthusiasm and hard work is what makes the difference for minor hockey in Stouffville.
