The Little Caps are pleased to announce Bryan Reel will serve as the Head Coach of the 16U Midget Team for the 2023-24 season.
A Pittsburgh native, Coach Reel played for the North Pittsburgh Wildcats and attended Penn State University. Prior to this season with the Little Caps, he coached squirts, peewees, and bantams locally in the Ashburn Xtreme program, accumulating 4 CBHL Regular Season Championships, 3 CBHL Playoff Championships, 2 VA State Championships, and a trip to the USAH Nationals. Coach Reel is a level 4 certified USA Hockey coach.
Coach Reel has coached both the 2007 and 2008 birth years since his arrival with WLC, earning consecutive bids to the AYHL Playoffs and qualification for the USAH Southeast District Tournament this season.
“Bryan has been terrific for two different birth years,” says Hockey Director Matt Thomas. “I’ve been extremely impressed with his developmental vision and how it aligns with our club model, and I know he's excited to reconnect with the 2007's next year.”
