Micah Zandee-Hart says “To say I am excited to be a part of RINK Kelowna’s summer camps would be an understatement. My experience as an assistant coach with RHA Kelowna’s Female U18 Prep team gave me some of my most fond hockey memories and I believe that the girls taught me just as much, if not more, than I taught them. I look forward to leaning on my own playing experience to assist in developing and inspiring the next generation of elite female hockey players in my home province of BC.”
Micah has an extensive playing resume playing 4 years with the Big Red at Cornell University, where she served as captain from her sophomore to senior season. During Micah’s time at Cornell, she was named to the Ivy League and Eastern College Athletic Conference first all-star team as well as, was a finalist for ECAC defenceman of the year.
