The Bishop’s University women’s hockey program partnered with Heydra Hockey and Fonctions Optimum to create a project specific to developing the next generation of women hockey players.
Valerie Bois spearheaded the project known as the Women’s Hockey Institute, alongside Katia Heydra. Bois and Heydra are both former professional hockey players, having played for the now-defunct Canadiennes de Montréal.
But they’re also involved with the Bishop’s Gaiters women’s hockey team. Bois is in her second year as assistant coach. However, this year is her first as a full-time staff member. And Heydra works as a hockey skills and development coach.
