Colorado native Tracy recognized with USA Hockey Adult Player of the Year honor
USA Hockey has announced that Jen Tracy has been named the organization’s Adult Player of the Year.
Tracy’s path to hockey began at 37, when she first began playing adult hockey in her home state of Colorado.
She was drawn to hockey not only because of the excitement of the game, but also because of the many ways the hockey community gives back to others.
Tracy’s involvement in the sport has only grown over the years, as she is an integral part of both her local and state women’s hockey associations as both a player and board member.
Tracy serves as the president of the Pike’s Peak Women’s Hockey Foundation, her local adult women’s hockey association, and has served on the Women’s Association of Colorado Hockey Board for the last five years.
Through her leadership, Tracy has helped grow the game of women’s hockey in Colorado, sharing her love for the sport through hosting numerous try hockey events at her local rinks. Tracy also volunteers with the blind hockey and sled hockey communities, as well as organizing other community outreach programs.
In addition to her work at the adult level, Tracy also helps shepherd the next generation of girl’s hockey players, volunteering with the local 8U and girl’s associations in Monument.
