Girls' Hockey Clinic Featuring Kristen Wright- October 10-11th
VMHC is excited to welcome Kristen Wright for a Girls' Hockey Clinic October 10th and 11th at Dobson Ice Arena in Vail.
Kristen Wright joined USA Hockey's ADM staff as a regional manager of female hockey in January 2019. She transitioned from her previous role as its manager of girl's player development which she held since December 2014. A Minnesota native, Wright played hockey at Shattuck-St. Mary's School before embarking on a decorated career at Connecticut College, during which she was a two-time team captain, a NESCAC Academic All-American, a NESCAC All-Sportsmanship player and an AWCHA National Scholar Athlete selection. After her time in Connecticut, Wright moved west to pursue her law degree at the University of Colorado. During her tenure in Boulder, she also served as the head coach for the University of Colorado women's ice hockey team, earning recognition as 2014 Collegiate Sport Clubs Coach of the Year, while founding the ACHA's Western Women's Collegiate Hockey League. Following her graduation with a juris doctor degree in 2011, Wright served as senior associate counsel at a Colorado law firm. She had her first taste of international hockey competition as an assistant coach for the 2013 U.S. Women's National University Team. Shortly after joining USA Hockey in 2014, Wright again stepped behind the bench for the U.S. Women's National University Team, this time as head coach of the American entry in the 2015 Winter World University Games. Since joining USA Hockey, she has been actively involved with the Girls/Women's Section, now acting as its staff liaison. She also manages all of the girls national player development camps, sits on the NHL Female Hockey Advisory Committee, the USA Hockey Youth Council, National Championships committee, and serves as the general manager for the 2020 and 2021 Women's U18 World Championship Team.
