While Cammi may be one of the best female hockey players of our time, she understands there is so much more to the sport than what is on the scoreboard at the end of each game.
Whether it be running female hockey schools, helping girls financially through grants and funding, or talking openly about the struggles she has faced as a woman in a male dominated sport, Cammi is always trying to ensure the next generation of female hockey players have the opportunities and tools to achieve their goals.
The most important hockey lessons Cammi has learned along the way that she hopes to impart on all players is “To have fun, understand the meaning of team, set goals and dream big!”
Aside from hockey, my deepest passion revolves around helping youth. There are so many outside pressures on kids today such as :
- Perfectly filtered Instagram posts
- Cyber bullying
- Dedicating their days, months and years to perfect their sport or craft
- No free time for the really important events in life
These are examples that can lead kids to feel the need to be perfect. These forces rattle their confidence, contribute to anxiety, hijack their passion and allow no time to rest, relax or dream.
One of my goals when working with youth today is to help them navigate this challenge and walk away feeling empowered, feeling like they matter, that they are qenough and that they are capable of achieving their goals.
