Here in Eisenhower Park in East Meadow, we have an ice rink — the Northwell Health Ice Hockey center. I am on the 12U ice hockey team for girls. The team is called the Islanders Jr.

We are a travel team, and we can pretty much go anywhere. The best part is that we have a personal coach who could help us with schoolwork, which is a great thing. In addition, we also have an off-ice training coach to help us build our muscles and get stronger.

This year is the first year they started a 12U girls Islanders ice hockey team. They are even trying to work with us as hard as possible. Even the Islanders are buying our equipment, which is beyond nice. I am really passionate about this and I hope you will be inspired by this too.
