Hello my name is Ellie Schau and I am a 17 years old. Currently, I'm a Junior at Williamsville East High School, New York, where I billet away from home during the Hockey season. I have loved playing hockey since I first stepped on the ice at 4 years old. My older brother Eriq, also played hockey, so I grew up in the rink and on the ice. I have attended numerous camps, tournaments and showcases. In 2017 I moved away from home to play for an elite National Tournament Bound Tier I team in the Canadian Lower Lakes Female Hockey League - Midget AA. Last year I made it to Nationals with my team, and played against some of the best teams in the country.
My personal goal in life is to play college hockey and get a degree in Sports Medicine or Meteorology . I want to take my commitment and love of hockey to the next level and play the game as long as I can.
I am focused, dedicated and a hard worker. I do whatever it takes to develop and improve my game and my mind. I weight train and have a personal coach for skating and stick handling. I take as many opportunities as I can to skate in all the camps my mom can afford. What sets me apart from others is my drive and commitment to the sport I love. I am teachable, and enjoy learning from my coaches and other players. I love hockey, and nothing matters more to me than playing the game I love while enjoying life.
