Adam Herold was an outstanding athlete who was mature beyond his years. After a successful season as captain of the Midget AAA Regina Pat Canadians, Adam was called up by the Western Hockey League’s Prince Albert Raiders to join the team during their playoff run. At the same time, the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League’s Humboldt Broncos called and Adam juggled his time playing for both Prince Albert and Humboldt. On April 6th, 2018, the Humboldt Broncos’ bus was involved in a major accident on the way to a playoff game in Nipawin. Tragically, the accident took the lives of 16 members of the Humboldt Broncos organization, including Adam Herold. He died just six days before his 17th birthday.
Thanks to his natural talent, hard work and family support, Adam experienced many opportunities in his short life. Not all young promising leaders have the same advantages. The Adam Herold Legacy Foundation was established to provide opportunities to Saskatchewan youth to develop and refine not only their hockey skills, but also their leadership potential. The Foundation’s Hockey and Leadership Development Program will provide top trainers for skill development, physical and mental training, coaching development and ongoing support for hockey programs in target communities, as well as, scholarships.
The Foundation’s goal is simple – to build better hockey players and, more importantly, to nurture and support strong community-minded leaders – just like Adam.
