Emma started playing hockey in Hussar at the age of 4 and continued playing in Hussar until she was 10 years old. She also figure skated in Hussar for many years. Emma played girls hockey in Strathmore from the age of 11 to 16. Emma was a fierce competitor, a natural leader and the best chirper on her hockey team!
