The Bantam AA team participates in both the Central States Developmental Hockey League (CSDHL) and the South West Spring League (SWSL). Bannerman coached previously with Sabre organization at the Bantam level and most recently with local AAA Illinois hockey organizations, Fury and Chicago Young Americans as a head coach at the Bantam level.
Dana coached with the Sabres from 2003-2005 and then moved to the Chicago Young Americans from 2005-2007 coaching both at Bantam Major and Minor levels. He has most recently coached with the Fury at both the Bantam Major and Minor levels from 2007 to present. Dana also has over 10 years experience as a goaltending instructor for various camps and clinics. Having played goalie throughout his career in the Ontario Hockey League, OPJHL, and USHL, Dana is excited to share his knowledge of the position and add to the goalie instruction already being taught at the Sabres.
The Sabre organization is extremely pleased to have Dana join a strong group of experienced coaches who are committed to teaching and sharing their enthusiasm and love for the sport. Dana is a terrific addition to our coaching staff. The Bantam players and Sabre goaltenders will benefit greatly from his coaching skills and experience.
