Message from the Coach

Kent School has a long tradition of hockey - the first team dates back to 1911. Historically, this tradition has been carried on by young men who have represented Kent through hard work, selflessness and dedication to academics and to their sport. Kent competes in the Founder’s league, which is consistently one of the highest levels of hockey competition for high school-age players in the country. Players learn not only the skills of the game, but leadership and teamwork that will last well past their high school careers.

This highly competitive schedule and focus on development has led many of our players to aptly pursue their hockey aspirations in college and beyond.  Recent alumni have continued to excel on the ice and in the classroom at colleges such as Harvard, Brown, Michigan, Providence, Northeastern, Vermont, Massachusetts-Lowell, Penn State, Vermont, St. Lawrence, Army, and several other highly competitive NCAA Division I and III schools. Over the last several years Kent has had four former players selected NHL entry draft. In 2008 Kent had two players taken, one in the third round and the other in the seventh by the San Jose Sharks. In the 2012 draft Kent had two players selected on in the second round and another in the fifth round. Kent Hockey prides itself on the development of student athletes using the most up-to-date training techniques ranging from game video analysis to player conditioning through personalized training programs. Player readiness is developed in the rink, the outdoor synthetic ice surface, and in Kent’s new state-of-the-art fitness center. Kent Hockey prides itself on being competitive in the rink while also teaching young men the skills that will carry them well into their future.

Coach Dale Reinhardt is a graduate of the College of the Holy Cross where he was a four-year letter-winner and voted assistant captain for his senior season. He helped the Crusaders to an Atlantic Hockey Championship in 2006 and a berth in the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament.  In 2008 he was a finalist for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS award, which honors the attributes of community, classroom, character and competition. After his college career, Coach Reinhardt played professional hockey for the “AA” affiliates Anaheim Ducks (Bakersfield Condors) and LA Kings (Ontario Reign) in the ECHL. Coach Reinhardt brings experience and knowledge of the game to Kent Hockey and a philosophy of developing young men in both the classroom and on the ice. Coach Reinhardt is also a member of Kent's History Department, an advisor, a dorm parent, and a coach of Boys Varsity Golf.
