Life as a Gee-Gee in the Summer

Although school and hockey have just ended, the Gee-Gee women’s hockey program has made an incredible effort to give me and other members of the team the chance to work in the office and train with a personal trainer in Ottawa all summer long. Personally, I was looking forward to this opportunity to have the chance to work with some teammates for the next season. Staying here for the summer was, for me, the best possible choice I could have made. Not only do I have the chance to have a full time job but I can also attend every off-ice and on-ice session the Gee-Gee hockey team offers. We have 3 off-ice sessions with a personal trainer (Kayla Hottot), one on-ice and access to the pool and gym whenever we want. What more can you ask for? 

The uOttawa women’s hockey program is trying to do the best they can to help out in the community year after year. For example, last week, we volunteered for a BBQ for the University of Ottawa staff. Fun to interact with some of the other athletes that were volunteering as well! At the end of June, coaches and players are going to go to George-Etienne Cartier elementary school to entertain the students in their very last day of the year with fun activities. Of course we will be bringing hockey equipment! The mascot will also be present which will certainly please every replica watches kid.

Every year, the Gee-Gee women’s hockey team holds one week of camp for girls between the age of 6 and 17. The team will also be helping in collaboration with the City of Ottawa in three other camps. Helping throughout the community certainly helps us attract more and more young hockey players to our camps replica rolex and games. We are seeing the results with twice as much registration’s than summer 2012. rolex replica
