The Little Caps are pleased to announce Brad Kostrzebski will return as Head Coach of the Bantam Minor (2009) for the 2023-24 season.
Brad grew up in the Washington area playing for the Prince William Panthers and Washington Little Caps youth programs. He then played junior hockey for the Potomac Patriots and won a state championship with Woodbridge High School. He played college hockey at Christopher Newport University, winning two Blue Ridge Hockey Conference Championships. After getting into coaching with Pro Ambitions summer clinics, he spent 1 year coaching U16 AA for the Patriots and 2 years with the Little Caps. Brad also coaches for the Messier Selects Spring program.
This past season, Brad led the 2009 squad to the best record in the club, the #3 seed in the AYHL (Elite), and a league playoff Championship.
"Brad is part of a strong wave of young, local alumni who are returning to contribute to the club," says Hockey Director Matt Thomas. "I'm very pleased with what I've seen from him the past three years-- he's organized, disciplined, and he's extremely hungry to get back to work with the 2009's."
