The HBHA would like to welcome Paul Barbas to its coaching staff.
Paul will be our new defensive coach and will have a great crop of young defenseman to work with and prepare them for the 2017 World Championships in the Czech Republic.
We are extremely happy to have Paul aboard; his knowledge of the game will surely benefit our players.
Paul has been around this game for over 35 years, whether coaching, playing, scouting or managing he is a true ball hockey fan and his love of the game is apparent. He has also played in multiple Provincial and National championships and in 2012 he joined the HBHA.
He was a very important player for us in both the 2013 World Championships and again in 2015 where he had a chance to play with his three sons and nephew. He helped Greece to its best ever result, an impressive 4th place in the world. He also played in the 2012, 2014 and 2016 Masters tournaments.
Paul decided to hang them up as a player on the international stage, but we are honored to have him aboard as a coach. Along with the rest of the coaching staff he is ready and excited to lead our team in Pardubice Czech Republic in 2017.
On behalf of the staff, players and members of the HBHA welcome aboard Paul.
