Story 30

Gender: Female
Grade Level of Event: Sophomore
Sport Played: Women’s Ice Hockey
Your Story: A college in New England
has continued to hide the abusive coaching on the Women’s Ice Hockey team. This head coach has had 9 players leave under her coaching in the last 2 years. Four student athletes including myself have been removed for false allegations, targeting, and false reporting in hopes of getting us kicked off the team.

She has treated the student athletes with pure disrespect and cruelty. The humiliation, targeting behavior and making us feel not welcomed has caused 5 players to step away on their own. She has made it very clear that she does not care about our mental health.

Nether does the college, as we have tried time and time again to seek help from them, but they continue to hide her behaviors and say there is nothing to be done.
