Adam Paulson, a freshman at Bainbridge High School, was selected by the Pacific Northwest Amateur Hockey Association as one of six 2004 birth year defensemen from the state of Washington to attend the 2019 USA Hockey Pacific District Youth Player Development Camp.

The camp will be held in May at City National Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Adam started playing ice hockey as a Junior Warrior at the Bremerton Ice Center, but has played with the Seattle Junior Hockey Association (SJHA) for the past two seasons.

For the 2018-19 season, Adam played for SJHA’s top 14U select team which plays in the Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association against lower British Columbia teams.

He was selected for the Pacific District (Alaska, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon and Washington) camp based on both his regular season performance and his performance at the PNAHA Youth Development camp in January 2019 in Wenatchee.

According to USA Hockey Pacific District, “Players will compete in multiple games, participate in both on-ice and off-ice activities while showcasing their talents in hope they will move through the District Camp to the 2019 USA Hockey National Player Development Festival in Buffalo, New York. This is a great opportunity to advance (their) game and exposure if (they) wish to play junior, college, or professional hockey. Our staff has high expectations as we expect our athletes to put their best foot forward both on and off the ice in hopes of someday representing the United States in international competition.”

“I think this will be a great experience for Adam”, said SJHA 14U A1 Head Coach Dan Matheson.

“I look forward to him playing with some very highly skilled players,” Matheson added.

Joining Adam in representing the state of Washington at the Pacific District Development camp are three goalies, 10 forwards and five other defensemen.
