Crystal has been the driving force behind the North West District Female Program and even before that she supported the female program in Burns Lake.
She brings energy and enthusiasm to whatever she is working on. This season, thanks to Crystal’s amazing work, we have two (2) female representative teams, have had several divisions from Novice to Bantam participate in all female tournaments as North West District teams.
Crystal has been organizing female hockey weekends within the North West District so females in our district can experience female only hockey and worked with local MHA's on female only recruitment, Esso Fun Days and weekly female only ice times.
She has been a champion for our female players and often spends hours putting together the teams, making up swag bags for the female players or going that extra mileage on that week’s project for the females.
Crystal has been able to organize two (2) female teams to attend and participate in Wickfest which has been and will be an amazing experience for our female players. This included writing a heartfelt contest entry for Wickfest for the Bantam female team to take part in the Pro-Experience, which they won.
Crystal has an exceptional ability to find sponsorship for the female program to make it easier for families and ensuring all females can participate.
Crystal has been a leader and continues to be the cornerstone of our female program.
For these reasons, therefore she is being nominated by the North West District for the Fred Heslop Minor Hockey Week Awards.
