We are the Winnipeg East Stars PeeWee A2 Purple team, and we are a team as diverse as the city we represent! We are of Black, Norwegian, Inuit, Metis, French, Ukrainian, Irish, Polish, Greek, Swedish and Scottish descent…..but most importantly…we are all Canadians and we are all, Stars!
We are a female hockey team from the great City of Winnipeg. We play hockey for the love of the game, for the community activities we do as a team, for the lifelong friendships and of course, for the dressing room dance parties! Not only do we work hard on the ice playing the game we love, we are also out representing in our community. As a team, this season we gathered at the Manitoba Parliament to remember and honour those who served and continue to serve so that we can live in peace and freedom. Additionally, as a team, we collected used sporting equipment in order to provide opportunities for those who want to play the great game of hockey, but who otherwise would not be able to afford to play. We are not only Stars on the rink, we are Stars in our community! Leading, learning, caring!
Whether on the ice, in the community or in school, we are working to become tomorrow’s scientists, teachers, police officers, military personnel and leaders. We’re not just working to become great hockey players, we’re working to become great team players – on the ice, in our schools and our community…we are working on becoming GREAT CANADIANS!
Great job ladies!
