Brooke's Bio:

Brooke is a certified Hockey Canada Coach with 20 years of power skating experience. Brooke previously oversaw all player programming development at Burnaby 8 Rinks, operating the Canlan Hockey Academy, from 2003 – 2008 with experience coaching athletes from age 5 – 80 and levels from Learn to Skate to Junior A. Brooke has been a coach with the Barracudas since 2015, along with numerous 3on3 and other spring/summer teams. Brooke still plays women’s hockey herself and has played at various high levels over the course of her playing career.

Growing up Brooke figure skated for 8 years before getting the bug to play hockey. With no female teams to play on Brooke grew up playing boys hockey with Ridge Meadows where she played Bantam rep hockey and participated in three BC Winter Games winning gold each time. She has been part of the Hockey Canada/BC Hockey development program since she was 14, including Team BC development. As an adult, before her little Barracuda came along, she played Division 1 ladies at Burnaby 8 Rinks for many years coming up against players like Cammie Granato (she is very, very fast). Brooke has competed at the Western Shield for women’s hockey and even traveled in her earlier days to Minnesota with the Vancouver Selects to play US and China based female teams. Brooke is very excited to teach power skating for the Cudas and all the future team Canada members the association will produce.
