Player Spotlight - Lauren Schoenhofen

What made you want to play ringette?

Growing up I watched both my mom and my aunt play ringette. I was spent so much time at the rink as a kid and couldn’t wait to play just like my mom and aunt!

What team do you play for?

I am currently playing for U21 Team Canada and this past season I played for the SK Canada Winter Games team and the U19AA Bandits.

What do your friends think of your athletic success? How do you handle missing out on activities with friends because of your athletic schedule?

I have been so lucky to have friends that are always so supportive of my goals and successes in sports. Sometimes it’s tough missing out on hanging out with friends but the memories and friendships that ringette has given me more than make up for what I might have missed out on outside of the rink.

What is your favourite pre-game meal?

Chicken alfredo pasta and green beans

Do you play any other sports?

I played highschool basketball, volleyball, flag football, and ultimate frisbee!

What is your biggest on-ice strength?

I think it would be my ability to read the ice and think the game.

How long have you played ringette?

This will be my 14th year playing.

What position do you play?

Centre and defence.

Who is your biggest role model and why?

I would have to say my mom and my aunt. They brought me into the sport and have played a huge role in my successes in and out of the rink.

What is your favourite ringette memory or accomplishment?

My experience at the Canada Winter Games is something I will never forget and winning bronze at that event is my favourite accomplishment!

What do you love most about playing ringette?

I love playing ringette because of the opportunities it has given me and the people I have met along the way. The rink has become a second home and I will always be thankful for the friendships and memories ringette has provided me with.

What advice would you give someone wanting to play ringette?

Go for it! Getting into a new sport can be scary but there are so many kind and supportive people in the ringette community that coming to the rink becomes so much fun!
