About Athlete

I strive for perfection when it comes to my sport and have come to realise that determination and hard work is what gets me over the line. I set goals for myself and work hard at achieving these goals. I am able to achieve these goals by working hard on my own and with my coach, and also within my team at each and every practice. Working with my coach and my team has helped me with my mental toughness and consistency in my game. Discipline and focus are what supports my academic learning, and I follow the same approach from my hockey in striving towards my academic goals. Being part of a college team, excelling in the sport that I love, and being coached by a team of people that is working towards the same common goals, will enhance both my hockey game, and grow me as an individual.
