Earlier this week, Brogan Bailey took the reigns behind the bench of the South Shore Lumberjacks and got down to business in selecting two assistant coaches to join him in leading the team. Both additions to the coaching staff are familiar with Bailey as they have worked with him last season with the UPS South Shore U18 Mustangs. Joining the Lumberjacks are Bridgewater native, Shawn Woodworth and Italy Cross native Adam Worth. Shawn Woodworth spent last season with the Mustangs being an instrumental contributor to a league regular season title as assistant coach. Prior to that, he was Head Coach of the Major Bantam program for three successful winning seasons from 2016 to 2019. Many South Shore and Western area hockey players know Shawn’s extensive knowledge and passion for the game and have also benefited from the expertise of attending Shawn’s hockey schools, skill sessions, skating clinics and positional camps over the past decade. Coach Bailey commented, “Over the past two seasons Shawn and I have developed a great relationship. We approach the game in a similar way and I trust in his development techniques and philosophies. That trust is something I believe players notice and goes a long way to building a solid on-ice product.” Adam Worth spent last season working countless hours with both the Mustangs and Lumberjacks as the goaltending coach and coached with South Shore Minor Hockey. Adam grew up playing hockey in Halifax and Moncton, playing Bantam AAA, Midget AAA and High School Hockey. Coach Bailey also had this to say about his newly appointed assistant coach, “I had the pleasure of working with Adam last season when he stepped into work with the Mustangs’ goalies. We developed a good working relationship in our time together last season and his goaltending and hockey knowledge will be an asset to the Lumberjacks moving forward,”
The South Shore Lumberjacks welcome both these gentlemen to the the team and look forward to their strong contributions.
