Kate Norman England Field Hockey
Kate Norman Using my determination I am looking to develop my athletic ability further. I am passionate about hockey but also about sports in general. I lenjoy trying all sports and have played golf, tennis, cricket and soccer. In addition I also ski, swim and run regularly. Sport can bring people together no matter what background they come from and I believe college Hockey in the US will provide me with the opportunity to integrate with others. My caring and sociable characteristics are ones which will allow me to develop new lifelong friendships.

Quote â€œMy enthusiasm, energy and self motivation contribute significantly to the teams I represent.â€? Kate Norman
Academic Goals Academically I want to obtain a degree in Spanish as this is a subject that I enjoy and I wish to improve this as much as I can to enable me to use this qualification vocationally in the future. My short term academic goals are to complete my Advanced Levels and achieve the following results - Spanish B, Physical Education B and Media Studies C.
College Goals I wish to concentrate on my hockey once I have left school. I love the game and really enjoy the competitiveness and camaraderie that a positive team environment can provide. My enthusiasm, energy and self motivation contribute significantly to the teams I represent. Playing soccer at a competitive level as a youngster has allowed me to develop into a prolific goal scorer with attacking instincts. A team that has the same expectation of success as I do is a team that would suit me perfectly.
Life Goals I want to develop my talents so that I can use them in later life. Playing competitive hockey for as long as I am able and developing a career using my language skills are two things I am most interested in pursuing. I hope to be able to speak fluent Spanish and thereafter use that either as a teacher or translator. I believe that my skiing ability will allow me to teach Spanish speaking skiers once my language skills have developed. I would also like to be able to coach hockey in the future and put something back into a sport that has given me so much enjoyment.
College Hockey “I love the game and really enjoy the competitiveness and camaraderie of being in a team.”
