Game Ready Goaltending is proud to introduce our newest Sr. Instructor. Lucky us as this individual is one of Saskatchewan’s most decorated and accomplished female goaltenders. We are beyond excited to officially add Jane Kish to our team.
Jane began playing hockey in the small city of Weyburn, SK, where she was born and raised. She fell in love with the game when she first started playing at age four; however, she always knew she wanted to be a goalie – just like her dad, Chad Kish. Jane was fortunate enough to play her entire minor hockey career at home in Weyburn.
From 2010-2014, Jane played for the Weyburn AAA Goldwings. She had a dream AAA career in which she was surrounded by incredible teammates, coaches, and community members. Due to the strong culture of the team and their formidable talent, the Weyburn Goldwings took home a National Championship during Jane’s final year in 2014. She was extremely grateful to be able to win the Esso Cup with her team, and she is proud to have assisted in placing Weyburn on the map as the home of strong female hockey. One of Jane’s proudest moments was when she was awarded ‘Top Goaltender’ at the Esso Cup Championship. In addition to her performance with the Goldwings, Jane spent her time in Weyburn playing on the Team Sask. U-18 team from 2011-2013. Through her involvement with Team Sask., Jane travelled all across Canada and competed in several national tournaments.
Following her AAA career, Jane competed in varsity level hockey where she played for the University of Regina women’s hockey team, the Cougars. She completed her 5 years eligibility with the Cougars and will graduate with joint degrees in Kinesiology and Education in the spring of 2021. During her time with the Cougars, Jane was awarded team MVP this past season and now leads the Cougars in All-time, Career shutouts. Jane is endeavoring to continue her hockey career after she completes her formal education and obtains her degrees.
Game Ready Goaltending knows what it means to teach the entirety of a goaltender’s skill. They work collaboratively with their students to ensure they receive balanced instruction where their strengths are reinforced, and any perceived deficits are identified and resolved through on ice education and practice. They go above and beyond to provide the training, support, and care that all goaltenders require in order to excel. Jane is excited to be a part of the GRG crew and to combine her love of hockey with her education to the benefit of all who walk through GRG’s doors. She cannot wait to see you in the new building!
