The IceForum Companies are pleased to announce that Derek Nesbitt (Nezzy) and Brian Cole have accepted the position as Joint Hockey Directors for the IceForum Hockey Association - travel and house. Both Nezzy and Brian have many years experience within the hockey community:

Nezzy’s unique qualification to co- head the IceForum Youth Hockey Program is best described in his own words, ”I’ve always had a genuine love for developing young hockey players and giving them every opportunity to get the same joy out of hockey that it has given me. Hockey has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and giving back to a sport and a community that has given me so much is something I’ve always wanted to continue to do.”


Brian Cole – Brian hails from Lawrence, Massachusetts where he played AA Youth Hockey. Brian has a strong resume in coaching youth sports having coached both youth baseball and youth softball. Brian has been a head coach for the Atlanta Phoenix Hockey Club at multiple levels.
