Mike has been a big part of Back Bay for a long time and his expertise as a coach and mentor to our youth players is important to the success of the organization. Back Bay is proud that we are able to offer our players three to four hours per week of practice and skill sessions, we feel it is the most important part of the ADM Development Model.

He brings a wealth of experience, teaching ability, and genuinely cares about each player who takes the ice here at Back Bay. He will be instrumental to our players development.” 

    When asked about coming back to Back Bay, Potenza shared, “I'm very excited to be part of the Back Bay program again.It's a great opportunity for not only myself but also for the kids. I believe very strongly that practices focused on skill development are every bit as important as system focused practices. This will be a great opportunity to implement a progression of skill and drills as the kids move up through the program.”

    Coach Fred

    Fred Antonucci, known to hundreds of former players as “Coach Fred,” passed away on January 29, 2021.  Coach Fred was instrumental in the formation of Back Bay Youth Hockey, donating time and resources to get the program up and running.  He similarly was a key contributor to the construction of the Pop Whalen Arena.

                After working to get the youth program and arena established, Coach Fred became the first head coach of the modern iteration of the Kingswood Regional High School varsity ice hockey program.  Over the course of decades, Coach Fred coached many successful teams.  His teams appeared in three state championship games, winning one.  He mentored hundreds of players over the years, teaching them valuable life lessons, as well as the game of hockey.

                The Back Bay Youth Hockey community extends a debt of gratitude and our condolences to the Antonucci family.
