Congrats to Coach Brennan!
by posted 02/14/2018


PBK would like to congratulate Brennan Thompson (or Coach Brennan as his PBK Bantam A players know him) for his record-breaking season at Lebanon Valley College.  Coach Brennan (#25, Forward, Assistant Captain) recently broke the record for most games played by a Dutchmen in LVC history.

Coach Brennan and his LVC teammate (and PBK Bantam A assistant coach) Cody Pessig have both been phenominal additions this season to the PBK coaching staff.  Their dedication to PBK and their players while also juggling an NCAA hockey schedule and senior college course schedule has been nothing short of amazing.  Brennan and Cody have set a fantastic example (on and off the ice) for 15 young PBK hockey players -- true leadership by example!

Please take a few minutes and read the complete story about Brennan... CLICK HERE!

The PBK Nation wishes Brennan and Cody good luck as they wrap up their regular season schedule this weekend as well as their upcoming playoff run!

The Dutchmen finish their regular season at home with games against Bryn Athyn and Elmira on Feb. 16 and 17, and playoffs begin the following week.

PBK Granted Tier 1 Status for 2018/19
by posted 02/05/2018




Palmyra Black Knights announce the launch of a Tier 1 ice hockey program for the 2018/19 season.

Annville, PA – The Palmyra Black Knights (PBK) youth ice hockey program under the direction of Antoine Bergeron, hockey director for PBK and Klick Lewis Arena (KLA), is excited to announce the launch of a Tier 1 ice hockey program starting in the 2018/19 season. 

PBK thanks the leadership of the Atlantic Amateur Hockey Association (AAHA) which governs youth hockey in the Atlantic Affiliate of USA Hockey for their support of our expanding program in south central Pennsylvania.

This added program will supplement an already successful youth hockey portfolio that is grounded in the USA Hockey American Development (ADM) model, which emphasizes hockey skill building and long-term athletic development.

PBK will now be able to deliver a full hockey program that covers all ages and skill levels of youth hockey under one roof – from “Learn to Skate” through 18U… and beyond.  A formal dryland training curriculum with Explosive Sports Performance will be added next season to complement PBK’s on-ice program which includes dedicated skill development, powerskating, and goalie instruction.

“It’s important we don’t deviate from our sweet spot of delivering a top notch Tier 2 AA/A/B and house/development product in our region.  These levels will continue to support the largest population of our players and it’s important they continue to receive the high-quality instruction and coaching they are used to at PBK.  Offering Tier 1 hockey is a logical next step in continuing to develop our program by offering all of the products our players could need,” stated Bergeron.

More details regarding tryouts, leagues, coaches, and levels offered for the entire PBK program (including House/Development, Girls, Tier 2 AA/A/B, and Tier 1) will be available at the PBK website as the products are finalized in the upcoming weeks.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to Antoine Bergeron (717-727-3455 or
