About Women’s Hockey @ Utah
Started by Lina vonHartsfeld, Jackie Vars and myself to give women the chance to play and grow while getting the opportunity to play hockey. The University of Utah allowed the team be associated with the school so that the name could be used. The idea was to get the organization started so that the school will fully pick up the team and allow the team members to get more involved with school and be able to play hockey at the same time. I was able to help coach and run practices for this team for two hockey seasons while it grew as an organization.

As one of the coaches for the team, I was in charge of running practices on early Sunday mornings to give the team a chance to develop their skills. I fully prepared for these practices with practice plans on created on drill sheets along with the other coaches that helped out. Along with running these practices, I was on the bench at games coaching.
