Since Edmonton is the closest major city to Camrose, naturally Tara is a diehard Edmonton Oilers fan (poor girl).

She says she fell in love with hockey at a very young age thanks to her mom and dad always having it on the TV. “I remember as a kid always playing street hockey in the summer when there was no ice to skate on. I earned a big respect for the game at a young age.”

Tara started playing hockey at the age of 10, but after a bit of a break, she got back into playing four years ago. She now plays for a Camrose women’s rec team called the Nighthawks.

Her favourite hockey memory was going to her first NHL game with her dad. “I was 15 and he surprised me with tickets in the lower bowl to the Oilers game vs the Arizona Coyotes. I was so amazed I got to sit so close and watch all the action!”
