Hanna continues to bring her wealth of coaching and skills development experience to the U22AA program. Under her leadership the U22 team has experienced consistent success in elite league play and won an OWHA Silver Medal in the 2022-23 Provincial Championships. Hanna’s impressive technical skill set and personal experience as a high-performance athlete are key resources for the development of the team.

Sarah has coached teams from all over North America, and will continue to take a lead role in developing the defensive capability of the Lady Sens.
New on the U22 bench will be Autumn Moors who joins the team as an Assistant Coach. Autumn is a graduate of the Lady Sens program. She played U SPORTS women’s hockey at Dalhousie University where she was Team Captain of the Tigers. Autumn’s background as a player, a leader and skills coach will be an asset to the team. Congratulations and welcome back to the Lady Sens Autumn!

We are pleased to welcome both Jason Bosomworth and Casey Crupi to the Lady Sens organization; Jason will be the Head Coach U15AA and Casey will be the Associate Head Coach U15AA in the 2024-25 season.

Jason is committed to continuing the Lady Sens tradition of excellence through individual and team player development.
Casey has been a high level competitive hockey player and played with the National Capital Competitive Program, forerunner of the Lady Sens Program. This is her eighth season coaching girls hockey in the KGHA; she is currently the Head Coach for U15A. Casey is a big proponent of ensuring the work ethic is always set at a very high standard, while also leaving lots of room to have fun and develop.
We look forward to working with Jason and Casey as they bring their experience and dedication to minor hockey to the new challenge of their U15AA coaching roles. Congratulations and welcome to the Lady Sens organization!
