    "Investing in Bridgedale helped Davis immensely. He loved the experience and misses it every day, the whole thing, the academics, the peer group mindset. No doubt - Bridgedale had a huge impact getting him to where he is today.”

    “One of the best decisions we ever made was to send Jack to Bridgedale Academy … an amazing education … extra daily on/off ice training during the school day … excellent coaching … brought his hockey game to a new level. Because of  Bridgedale his game and skill set drastically improved and helped him achieve his goal of verbally committing to Quinnipiac, and getting drafted to the USHL and the OHL."
