ZOE MORGAN HARRIS

Founder
 

For over 30 years Zoë Morgan Harris has worked to grow the sport of ice hockey in the United States as a player, coach, and administrator. Her accomplished career is evidence of her enthusiasm for and commitment to building new teams, associations, and leagues.

Zoë’s legacy is built around mentoring student-athletes. She believes that sports teach student-athletes skills beyond the game in the areas such as responsibility, work ethic, grit, integrity, courage, and teamwork, which helps develop young people into positive stewards in their communities.
