TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF!
Hey! My name’s Sabrina Durham and I’m a 15-year-old girl from LaSalle, Ontario. I’ve been absolutely in love with hockey for as long as I can remember. I played a combination of boys house league and travel throughout tykes-peewee, then in bantam I made the move to girls travel for better opportunities.
I’m currently playing midget A hockey for the Lakeshore Lightning. In addition, I am an on-ice helper for an Atom B team and also am an OWHA certified referee.
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BE A WHL BRAND AMBASSADOR?
I wanted to become a WHL brand ambassador to be able to participate in growing the sport that I love so so so much. Female hockey players deserve just as much as the boys do and being able to promote that message is such an honour.
WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO AS A #WHLAMBASSADOR?
I am most looking forward to be a part of such an incredible community that is the WHL community.
WHAT’S SOMETHING NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT YOU?
One thing not a lot of people know about is that I keep track of all of my team’s stats just for the pure fun of it. I absolutely love statistics.
IF YOU COULD SIT DOWN AND HAVE DINNER WITH ONE FEMALE HOCKEY PLAYER, WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
If I could sit down and have dinner with one female hockey player I’d definitely pick Meghan Agosta. I would pick her because she was my first role model within women’s hockey, and she is originally from a town around my region. I’ve gotten the privilege to meet her on multiple occasions and she has always been such a kind human being.
WHAT’S THE BEST ADVICE YOU’VE EVER BEEN GIVEN IN HOCKEY OR IN LIFE?
The best advice I’ve ever been given is “If you always give 100% no one will ever be able to say you didn’t try”. I apply this to almost every single aspect of my life including school, work and hockey.
WHAT’S YOUR DREAM FOR WOMEN’S HOCKEY?
My dream for women’s hockey is for it to be equal to mens hockey—equal pay and equal respect. For little girls across the globe to have somewhere to play and players to look up to and for there to be equal opportunities for men and women everywhere.
