Newbridge Academy’s Major Bantam – Cole Burbidge
Newbridge Academy’s Major Bantam team is adding another top player with the commitment of forward Cole Burbidge from Falmouth, Nova Scotia.
“Cole plays the game at an elite level. He’s the type of player who makes other players around him better and can play in all the forward positions which is a great asset to have,” said Head Coach Brandon Benedict.
Cole is a strong student who is looking forward to succeeding in the classroom and on the ice. “He is the ideal student-athlete for Newbridge Academy. He loves hockey, but is also ready to put in the work in the classroom. Cole was one of my first targets when I arrived and am thrilled to be working with him in September,” said Benedict.
Our Bantam program is all about development and creating an environment which is conducive to kids wanting to learn and cultivating a passion for the game. “If kids are not enjoying themselves each and everyday then that is something I need to address immediately. I want hockey players coming to the rink who love the game and want to learn and improve each and everyday,” said Benedict. “Cole will not only embrace this methodology, but will help to spread it with his enthusiasm.”
