I started skating when I was about 4 years old and started playing hockey two years later with Whitemud West. I played with them up until peewee and then made the switch over to EGHA. It would be become one of the best decisions I would ever make. The memories and lasting friendships over the years is something I’ll never forget.
I will dearly miss all of it and it’s been a big part of my life. Memories of lacing up before games, our on the bench discussions, driving around for bottle drives, early morning practices, hanging out on weekends, running around hotels and everything else will always be near and dear to my heart. I can confidently say I have made life long friends here. I wish we could’ve had a proper last season or at least a chance to properly say goodbye. I always think about our last practice before lockdown and how excited I was to be with such an amazing group of girls this year.
I wanna thank my Mom and Dad for putting up with driving me everywhere for the last 11 years, early mornings or late at nights, in freezing cold arenas that may or may not have froze your hands and toes. I also wanna thank my grandparents for helping out when Mom or Dad couldn’t go and being my biggest cheerleaders and TSN analysts, helping me out planning plays. A big thanks to my many coaches over the years for helping me grow and become who I am today. Lastly, thank you girls for everything. You are truly so amazing. I’ll never forget and always cherish our time together.

Please keep in mind the first place to ask questions is the director level - this is to help manage a very heavy workload for all of the volunteers.

Dressing Room Policies
As the 2020-2021 season begins, please remember that the EGHA has Dressing Room Policies in place for the safety of your players. Below are both the Cell Phone and Female Representative Policies.
Cell Phone Policy
Any electronic device containing photo, recording or video capabilities is not permitted in the dressing room. Failure to adhere to this policy may result in disciplinary action.
Female Representative Policy
Players must be supervised in the dressing room at all times; there must be an adult female representative present in the dressing room before and after games until the dressing room is cleared. The EGHA strongly suggests a lone personnel member should never be in the dressing room with players at any time: two (2) female adults should be present together.
