Justin Hale
Coach

Justin brings his blue line expertise to Hockey and Sons for a 15th year as an instructor. The Stoughton, WI native is currently in his second season as an assistant at Dubuque in the USHL. Prior to heading south, Justin spent a season as an assistant coach at Madison in the USHL and Bemidji State in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. He also spent a pair of seasons helping the fortunes of the Lone Star Brahmas, a top NAHL franchise.  Before going behind the bench, Justin was a four-year stalwart at D III Wisconsin-Stevens Point.

“Hockey and Sons is family. I enjoy being with and learning from the fellow Coaches and Counselors. Being at camp it’s awesome to see all the parents forget about their busy schedules and spend quality 1 on 1 time with their child.”
