We at CarShield Hockey recognize that there is an opportunity to improve the level of instructional talent for women in the St. Louis area. In the recent past, there have been a lot of great girls and women hockey players that have experienced success on the ice. Our goal is to increase those numbers and provide experienced guidance for advancement to those women and girls who are striving to become elite level players. To do this, we'll be bringing in some of the best women coaches to help our girls learn what it takes to elevate their game and excel at the sport of ice hockey. We believe that Lauren is a great fit and will do a terrific job at developing and steering these talented young women in the right direction, helping them realize their goals of becoming elite student-athletes.
