Chase Nicholas commits to Newbridge Academy Pee Wee Major Varsity Program
Newbridge Academy is excited to welcome Chase Nicholas to our Varsity Peewee Major Team! Chase comes from the Sipeknekatik First Nation, Hants County, NS, he also calls the Pictou Landing First Nation community home with deep ties to both Mikmaq communities.
Chase has always been a well-rounded student. He loves many sports, hunting and fishing with his older brothers, but in the summer you will most likely find Chase on his bike, scooter, dirt bike or swimming in the Shubie River.
Chase brings to Newbridge a passion for hockey that he developed very early in life, starting to skate at the age of three. He played with the East Hants Minor Hockey Association, playing rep as an East Hants Penguin for his entire minor hockey career. He played spring elite hockey with the Atlantic Hockey Group with the Central Lightening AAA for Novice Major and Atom Minor- winning gold with his Atom minor team! He joined the NS raiders AAA Atom Major Elite Spring program for 2015 and then in 2016 played with the NS Knights for Pee Wee Major AAA spring elite program.
“I first had the opportunity to see Chase play hockey at the Andrew’s Showcase this past June and liked what I saw. Talking with his mother Cheryl and a conversation with Chase confirmed to me that he would be a nice fit for our school and program. It was clear that Chase is has a passion for hockey and with a little support from Newbridge Academy felt that we can help with his goals in school and in sport.” ~Paddy Flynn, Director of Varsity Hockey, Newbridge Academy
Chase has had a dream to play for a hockey prep school since the age of five. He is ready to continue his journey both academically and athletically with our Newbridge family this year!
“I have heard good things about Newbridge and everyone I have met so far seem like really nice people. I am looking forward to meeting new people and have new experiences. My hockey goal is to be a better skater and a better player.” ~Chase Nicholas, Pee Wee Major Varsity Hockey Team, Newbridge Academy~
Chase has had a dream to play hockey prep school since the age of five. The recent addition of Newbridge Academy to the hockey Canada prep school family is allowing Chase’s dreams come true. Our family is thrilled to call Newbridge our new home.
As a hockey mother, I am grateful for the opportunity my son has in joining the hockey program with Newbridge Academy. I am also impressed with the support the Newbridge Academy team has given our family in making sure Chase is able to be a part of the Academy. The Newbridge family has gone above and beyond in making this a reality for my son and our family. With so many hockey programs, it is very difficult to decide the best approach to develop young and talented hockey players, I am looking forward to the guidance and opportunity that Newbridge Academy is offering Chase. ~Cheryl Maloney~ (Chase’s Mom)
