Harold “Butch” Kowalka joins CSS Academy as its Head Coach after completing the last two seasons in the USPHL.
With ten years of junior hockey coaching to his credit, and countless players moved on to higher levels of hockey, Kowalka is looking forward to the challenge of helping CSS Academy players experience the international play that all programs are now looking for.
A former NCAA Division 1 player, NAHL Champion and AAA National Champion, Kowalka knows about winning and development.
Countless players have been influenced by his coaching and have been moved to the next level through his assistance.
Having recently completed a development camp in Krakow Poland, Kowalka himself will be looking to continue to learn about his Polish heritage while coaching CSS Academy players.
“Scouts all across the hockey world are looking for players internationally. At CSS Academy we provide the best training programs and amenities patterned after the United States Development Program. But we also offer that international playing experience that can not be had without actually playing in Europe. This provides a recruiting advantage to CSS Academy graduates when they return to North America in search of a college scholarship.”
