Recruit Profile
I am considered very focused and unshakable when in game situations and communicate well with my team at all times. Strong work ethic and driven.

I began playing field hockey at age 12. I played middle school and am the starting goalie for my high school and have enjoyed 3 consecutive shutout seasons since middle school. We are now the 2022 Provincial (State) Champions and had an undefeated season. I am the starting goalie for the Ontario Provincial U16 team and won a silver medal at Nationals in August of 2022. My club is Dolphins FHC and I play for both U16 and U18 as the starting goalie. I won a gold medal with my U18 club team at the 2022 Ontario Summer games in July 2022. I have honed my skills through a wide range of goalkeeping environments ranging from indoor floor, indoor turf, outdoor grass, and water turf. Nov of 2021, I attended the National Hockey Festival in Tampa, playing U19 as a 15 year-old. I was the highest ranked Canadian goalie in the U19 division with a 2-2-1 winning record. I am an honour student at Bluevale Collegiate in Waterloo, Canada and am taking every AP course available to me. I have aided in starting several clubs at my school including the newspaper and an ASL club as well volunteer coach young goalies through my local club.

I have had the opportunity to coach Gabby for her grade 10 season as her grade 9 season was lost due to Covid. Gabby has been an excellent addition to our team. She is an intense competitor and a very dedicated, committed athlete who always gives 110%. Although Gabby is a junior on a varsity team, she displays excellent leadership qualities and communication skills on the field and she won our rookie of the year award. Gabby's first season with Bluevale was flawless. The team finished with a 7-0 record and Gabby earned herself a shut-out in each of the 7 matches including the WCSSAA championship. We are so happy to have Gabby for 2 more years and are excited to see her continue to grow and develop over the upcoming seasons. Tara Macey

I have been Coaching Gabby for more than one year at the Club and Provincial levels. She is a very Dedicated, Committed and Hard working Athlete. She has a very professional and disciplined work ethic. Even though Gabby is young and still developing her technical Goalie Skills. She has quick foot work and Agility that Goalie's require to play at the next level. She likes to communicate with her defensive teammates which is helping her develop her Game IQ and Communication skills as well. I an very excited to see where the future opportunities can take her as she does have the potential to play and Excel at the University level. Zeeshan Minhas
