Personal Statement

Dear Coaches,

Throughout my life I have been a hard worker, whether it be during Paul Vincent skating camps, Shoot to Score, or even Honors Chemistry. While there may have been times that I fell (doing c-cuts on one foot or trying to figure out stoichiometry), I feel as though my perseverance and coachability have improved both my hockey game and my performance in the classroom, and I feel as though I would love to push my ability to work hard further by playing hockey at the collegiate level.

I have high honors at Middlesex, which is an academically rigorous school, and I wouldn’t have been able to achieve my academic goals without pushing through obstacles, but what really interests me is a challenge. I am planning to take AP Physics and AP English next year, and while they may be difficult,  one of my strong beliefs is that one cannot enjoy life or, in fact, live a very successful life without challenging herself. One of the main reasons I am able to maintain a 3.65 GPA is because of the challenges of both hockey and academics, and the motivation they bring to me, as nothing is as satisfying as finally solving that tough math problem, or hearing your coach scream “YES” at the top of her lungs when playing a game against a tough rival.

What makes me different from others is my coachability and positive attitude. Many of my teammates and coaches have commented on my ability to listen to coaches and apply what they are saying to my game. Additionally, I pride myself on never making the same mistake twice. If I get off the ice, knowing that I made a mistake, whether the coach explains my mistake to me or not, I get on the ice for my next shift determined to do it right this time. Also, even if my team is having a bad game, or a practice is especially tiring, I try to maintain a positive attitude to help my teammates be more positive, and to pick up the overall energy of the team, as hockey is a much better sport to play when the whole team is enjoying themselves.

I have attended the CCM High Performance Festival this past year, and I will be attending the NAPS showcase, the Beantown Tournament in Marlboro, the Crimson Showcase, and the North Shore Vipers’ Showcase. I will also be playing for the Tier 1 U16 North Shore Vipers team along with my Middlesex team. Additionally, over this summer I am committed to improving my strength and speed by doing Mike Boyle Training, and I will also be doing some Shoot to Score sessions to improve my shot.

All of these attributes have prepared me to move on to another challenge in my life, and hopefully, after graduating college, I will look back and see that I have challenged myself, and persevered through every bump in the road to make my life as successful, and enjoyable as possible.
