Philadelphia, PA (January 27, 2021)- Black Bear Sports Group has created a new invitation only tournament hockey team at the 2006 birth year level called Black Bear Selects. The team will compete at the international World Selects Trophy from June 28-July 2, 2021 in Nashville, Tennessee.
The World Selects Trophy tournament feature the top teams and players from the United Sates, Canada, Russia, Sweden, Finland, Czech Republic and more. The tournament is considered one of the most highly scouted and competitive events in youth hockey.
The Black Bear Selects will be led by Chris Kanaly, Rob Broderick, Chad Dlugolecki, and Pat Ferrill, four elite coaches in the Atlantic District, to build and guide an elite group of youth hockey players born in 2006. The coaches will use advanced scouting, coaching relationships, and player identification to select the team.
