Emma skates it out!
Emma (11) started playing Ice Hockey when she was 6, inspired by her two brothers who also play ice hockey. She is currently training and playing in the defence position at Auchenharvie Leisure Centre on a Saturday afternoon (Under 10’s) and a Wednesday evening (Penguins).
Emma is a 1st year Penguin (Under 12’s). This involves playing league games at ice rinks all over Scotland, North Ayrshire Ice Hockey Club has a home tournament that’s called the Sam Wallace Memorial Tournament and they also travel on away tournament, which are always lots of fun. She is also in the Scotland Girls Development Team for the 2nd year.
When we spoke to Emma she said, “I enjoy playing ice hockey as it keeps me fit and it’s a good way to meet new friends. My ambition is to play for Team GB’s Women when I’m older. My favourite ice hockey player is Megan Gourlay who plays for U18s GB squad as a forward.”.
Aiming high in the ice hockey world Emma, we love it!
