Alberto Pison off to play for the Danish National Team
Alberto Pison is going home. “When your Country calls, you go!” ~ Alberto Pison ~
Alberto came to Newbridge Academy this past September to play for the Varsity U18 Program and ever since has been turning heads in the hockey world with an energetic and entertaining level of play.
“When the family committed to having Alberto attend and play at our school we had no idea that he would be this good. Not only has he brought an exciting brand of hockey to the program, he has also brought character and a great attitude to our school and community.” ~ Paddy Flynn Director of Varsity Programs, Newbridge Academy.
Alberto leaves this coming Thursday, March 30th for home and then on to Frederikshavn, Denmark where his National Team commitment will begin. The U16 competition is a Six Nations Cup of sorts with participating Countries; Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Norway and Austria. The tournament will run April 4-9, 2017.
Playing at this level for his Country will put Alberto in a great position to pursue his dream of playing for Danish World Junior Team in the future. There is family history here as well with as Alberto’s brother Andre played for the National Team two years in the World Junior Championships held in Toronto in 2015. Alberto would like to repeat that honour for himself and his family as well.
“I’m very proud to represent my Country and I thank Newbridge Academy for helping me to prepare for this great opportunity, it is also very exciting to go home to be a part of this.” ~ Alberto Pison, Newbridge Academy, Varsity U18 Hockey Team ~
Alberto is a special talent and Newbridge Academy students and staff would like to wish him great success!
