Veteran Coach Stan Kondrotas Excited to Lead U-16 Club
The North Central Predators (NCP) are happy to welcome Head Coach Stan Kondrotas to the U-16 club for the 2023-24 season. Kondrotas is making a return to minor hockey after a number of years behind the bench in the Provincial Junior Hockey League (PJHL).

Since 2015, Kondrotas has held the roles of assistant coach for the Midland Flyers and head coach for both the Caledon Golden Hawks and the Schomberg Cougars. He led the Golden Hawks to back-to-back record breaking seasons in 2017-18 and 2018-19 and in 2022 the Cougars were the PJHL Carruthers Division Finalists. His success has led to recognition within the PJHL – being named PJHL Carruthers Division Coach of the Year multiple times. Before making the jump to the Junior C level he coached AAA for the Barrie Colts, including the 2015 Minor Bantam OMHA Champions.

 For 40 years, Kondrotas has been a proud skating and hockey skills instructor for many players, teams and organizations in the South Simcoe area. As owner of PS101 Prospects, he hosts development camps for minor hockey players and junior level hockey players throughout the year. He said, adding the U-16 Head Coach title to his resume, is something he looks forward to. I have always wanted to coach a draft year team,” he said. “My goal is to make every player, and the team as whole, better from the first time we are on ice. The team will come together. It will take time and patience.”

Everywhere Stan has coached, the team has shown great strides....our U-16 club is in for a very exciting year ahead!
