Michaela decided to play hockey after watching the National Women’s Team take on the Camrose boys AAA team prior to their departure for the Turin Olympics. After that night it was a whirl wind adventure as all three sisters decided to take off the dance shoes and pick up a hockey stick. There was to be no shortage of hockey in the Case household with three daughters all playing hockey together. Michaela treasures many great memories of playing house and rep with her two sisters and eventually pursuing university hockey. After that, Michaela found herself back at home base coaching with the Strathcona Stars, her local female Midget team.
A recent university graduate, Michaela has found her way to Kelowna and has become immersed with the Grindstone Award Foundation. Having the opportunity to help elevate female hockey through summer camps, power skating, teaching at off-ice facilities, and coaching, the Grindstone Award Foundation is another opportunity for Michaela to give back to hockey. Helping her help other female hockey players to reach their potential and achieve those seemingly far off dreams.
