Women’s Hockey Alumna Helping Game Grow in Seattle


SEATTLE, WASH.—The Seattle Kraken held its inaugural Girls’ & Women’s Hockey Forum at the Kraken Community Iceplex in October. 

Katelyn Parker ’16, who serves as the Kraken Community Iceplex player development coach, organized the event which included putting together an all-female staff to help instruct the players.

The event featured on-ice instructional sessions for experienced girls as well as sessions for inexperienced ones who could try the sport for free. There was also a separate panel discussion for coaches and youth hockey leaders.

Parker was the Raiders’ captain during her junior and senior seasons and won the team’s sportsmanship award all four years of her career.
