About: Nora's journey in the world of sports is defined by her unwavering commitment to nurturing young athletes and creating a positive impact in their lives. Prior to joining Koa, she generously volunteered her time as a coach, working with students from grades 3 to 8 at both the Wheaton Woods Elementary School Field Hockey Club and the Churchill High School Field Hockey Skills Clinic. Nora's own love for field hockey blossomed in 4th grade when she attended a Koa Promo Day. From that moment, her passion for the sport only grew stronger, and she has been an avid player ever since. She's played on various club teams and is currently a proud member of the Winston Churchill High School field hockey team. For Nora, shaping the lives of kids through sports transcends the game itself. It's about creating a nurturing environment where young athletes can not only develop their physical skills but also acquire invaluable life lessons such as perseverance and effective communication. She firmly believes that these skills learned through sports will serve as essential tools to navigate the challenges they encounter throughout their lives, making Nora a dedicated advocate for holistic development in young athletes.
