The80s

The 80's didn't bring in any championships for TYSC.
Even with well-known hockey coaches as Fred Shero, Lou Vairo, Mike Daski and others the Trappers
always seemed to come in second.
It was however also a period in time when players over the past, hung up their skates and retired.
The juniors from the TYSC organisation now had and took there chance to play in the first team together with well-known players as Martin Trommelen, Theo van Gerwen and Canadian imports as Doug Mason, Sean Simpson whom now are very successful coaches in Germany and Switzerland.

The Tilburg Trappers celebrated their 50th anniversary in 1988 with a reunion hockey game with players from the past and present for all the enthusiastic Tilburg hockey fans in the Pellikaan hal.
