CAPE BRETON BLIZZARD HOCKEY
Sport Relief Fund Spotlight
November 2, 2020
Blizzard Hockey is a female hockey association in Nova Scotia that is independently run and has an entirely female board executive. “Our association is building a pathway for girls in hockey," said Christina Lamey, President, "by being a part of this new organization, they can make their way forward, with confidence, in the sport.” Blizzard also prides itself on creating inclusive opportunities in the sport – nearly 25% of its program participants are Indigenous girls, and a portion of the funding received via the Jumpstart Sport Relief Fund will help support efforts to reach new Canadians.
“We are proud that almost 25 per cent of our program participants are Indigenous girls. We want to make hockey as accessible as possible for everyone."
