Newbridge Academy welcomes Camden Rendell to the 2017-2018 Boys Major Bantam Varsity Program
Rendell, who hails from Upper Tantallon, is a versatile hockey player who converted to defence this past season and was very successful after being known as a high scoring forward in the past. This brings a hybrid asset to the varsity team as he can easily switch positions, and uses his strength and power from the blueline or in front of the net. Camden has a high hockey IQ with terrific vision, the ability to anticipate plays, and thread and stretch passes on the tape to moving forwards. He has a no-panic demeanour, and his size and strength allow him to battle along the boards and take care of things in front of his net.
Camden spent his minor hockey years playing for TASA and most recently the Chebucto Atlantics, where he helped lead his team to the provincial championships. His 2016 Peewee AA team won Hockey Nova Scotia’s ‘Day of Champions’ where Camden was awarded player of the game with 2 goals and 2 assists.
“Camden has the ability to change the outcome of a hockey game. He can be a physical force and has a great scoring touch around the net.” Benny Devine, Former Coach
Camden is a multisport athlete, who is also part of Newbridge Academy’s baseball program. His most recent achievements include winning the 2016 Peewee Baseball Provincial and Atlantic Championships in Newfoundland & Labrador and playing on the 13U Nova Scotia team where he received an MVP for his homerun and outstanding defensive plays. This summer, Camden’s 2017 club team once again won the Provincial Championship and will be returning to Newfoundland & Labrador in September for the Atlantics.
This is Camden’s second year entering Newbridge Academy. “We are looking forward to Camden having the opportunity of being part of the varsity team where he will enjoy the privilege of training and travelling with his coaches and teammates along with the academic attention that Newbridge provides”. -Shane and Emily Rendell.
Camden’s future desires include continuing to excel in both baseball and hockey under the leadership of Trevor Wamback and Donnie Grant.
