Congratulations to Bulls player Dima Piskun - accepted to Hillside School
Dima Piskun is a 13-year old boy from the Ukraine who came to the United States for the first time in June 2010. Dima's Kharkov-based ice hockey team traveled to the US that summer to participate in power skating camps being directed by their head coach. Dima was paired with a West Chester-based billet family whose son was a member of the Exton Bulls Summer Selects program. This was the start of a relationship that would continue to grow over the next five years. The family kept in touch with Dima when he returned to the Ukraine at the end of the summer. Dima's team came back to Exton the following summer so the family requested that he again live with them during the Power Play camp week. Read more...
