MEET MYLEE NOILES!
Tell us about yourself!
My name is Mylee Noiles, and I am 11 years old. I live in New Brunswick, Canada and I am going into my 2nd year of Middle School.
I started playing hockey in 3rd grade and am now going into my first year of U13 level ice hockey. Even though I started as a player, it didn’t take me very long to figure out that I wanted to be a goalie. I love playing in the net; I show it when I go to my awesome goalie coach and when I attend goalie camp in the summer!
This past season I tried out and made the “A” level team! Also, I had the opportunity to be the 7th player with the AAA Rockets (all girls team), and with our high school girls team too! Another cool part of my hockey story is that my dad helps coach me, and my younger brother plays goalie as well. Our youngest brother, who is three, says he wants to be a goalie too!
What made you want to be a WHL Brand Ambassador?
I really wanted to be a WHL Ambassador because I want to be able to share with other girls that we can play hockey too. No one can tell us that girls aren’t good enough to play—we can do anything we try to do!
What are you most looking forward to as a #WHLAMBASSADOR?
I am really looking forward to telling others about Women’s Hockey Life, and helping them to get as excited as I do when I talk about women’s hockey.
What’s something not a lot of people know about you?
I have a couple “different” things about me 🙂 I love to paint and draw but my favorite painting is making pieces of wood look like food. I have ones that look like cookies, brownies, cakes and pop tarts. I spend a lot of time drawing hockey things too.
If you could sit down and have dinner with one female hockey player, who would it be and why?
I would choose Carly Jackson to have supper with. She just got drafted to the NWHL, after playing in university, which I really want to do too. She is from the next town over from me and she grew up attending the same goalie school that I go to!
What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given in hockey or in life?
The best advice I have ever been given is “winning is great, but when you lose you have to put it out of your mind and move onto the next game.” Also, that I have the capability as a goalie to be a leader on my team—I just need to do it.
What’s your dream for women’s hockey?
My dream for women’s hockey is that women continue to have their own league that is just as successful or even more so than the NHL!
