Growing up in the west island of Montreal, Christina Cameron watched her brother play hockey and was hooked. It was 1982, however, and only boys were allowed to play hockey. “I was only 4-years old so my parents signed me up as a boy, calling me Chris. I would go to the rink with all my equipment on but halfway through the season, they found out I was a girl and I got kicked off the team,” recalls Cameron, a mother of three now living in Markham.

My daughters have now started playing the sport through the Markham Stouffville Stars. They are making some great friends as part of being on a team and we have also made friends with the parents. There are many runs to Tim Hortons after the game with their teammates,” says Cameron, adding, “I also decided this year that the best way to inspire these young girls in the sport is to see other woman on the ice. So I am now coaching my 5-year-old’s hockey team.”
