Newbridge Academy’s Major Bantam – Adam Crocker
Newbridge Academy’s Major Bantam team is pleased to begin revealing it’s roster for the 2018-2019 hockey season. First up is the commitment of current Newbridge student Adam Crocker of Windsor, Nova Scotia. As one of the leading goal scorers during his second year on the Acadia PeeWee AAA team, Adam will bring a strong offensive presence for this team.
I hear nothing but positive reports about Adam’s potential to be a top level player for us at the Bantam level. He had a great year in PeeWee AAA last year and has the type of attitude I’m looking to build our program around,” said Major Bantam Head Coach Brandon Benedict.
This year, our Major Bantam team will be competing in the United States Premiere Hockey League (USPHL) U14 division, which is a league highly regarded for its exposure while being a development league for this age group. The Major Bantam team strives to offer a unique opportunity at a very high level which enables players to develop and play against teams throughout this region and beyond.
“The roster is beginning to take shape and I’m very excited to see how it all comes together. I’m working hard to try and add a few more names to the roster to give us a strong foundation of developing players. The Bantam program is the building block for the hockey program as a whole and our philosophy is to develop organically,” said Benedict.
