Adam Robertson


  • My name is Adam Robertson, and I am a 4th-year Honours Kinesiology student at Wilfrid Laurier University. I am apart of the Men's Varsity Baseball team at Laurier, where we have won back to back championships. I am a Left-Handed Pitcher on the team and was used as a starter and high leverage reliever in the last two seasons. I graduated from the Kitchener Jr. Panthers program last year and am a member of the IBL Kitchener Panthers. Prior to that, I grew up in the Waterloo Tigers organization where I played all positions. I am in the process of applying to  teacher's colleges for the next school year. I l love working with young individuals and helping develop athletes to reach their highest potentials. I am excited to continue to do so here at Bluechip Sports.
