Grassroots Girls’ Hockey Needs a Power Play | Christina Lamey | TEDxCape Breton University

In her talk, Christina examines the systemic barriers facing grassroots girls’ hockey and advocates for transformative action, inspiring a bold, new approach to unleashing the full potential of girls’ hockey in Canada. Christina Lamey is the President and founder of the Cape Breton Blizzard Female Hockey Association. Her 24-team-member association is one of the fastest-growing and most diverse hockey associations in Canada. Blizzard Hockey and the CBU Capers women’s hockey team won Kraft Hockeyville and they will soon open the first arena in Canada designated as a home ice for girls’ and women’s hockey. She is a past-president of the Nova Scotia Women’s Hockey league, the largest women’s league in Atlantic Canada. Christina has been building girls’ and women’s sport for over 20 years and is not at all surprised that women’s sports are now selling out arenas around the world. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
