Sasha grew up wishing she could play hockey, but there was no opportunity for her to follow her dream as a young person. She began playing hockey later in life, and now plays hockey in Kelowna wherever and whenever possible. She has a passion for the sport, and a belief in what the sport can offer women, especially as it continues to grow. She believes in the values that team sports can offer a young person such as teamwork, perseverance, and having a positive attitude. She knows that these attributes can take anyone wherever they wish to go in life.
Sasha hopes that anyone with the desire to play hockey will be able to do so with the help of this award.
