Changing the game for good: Minnesota Unbounded and the Hockey Niñas
Organization provides a place for girls of color to enjoy hockey together.
Minnesota Unbounded and the Hockey Niñas love hockey, just like almost everyone else in the state. But, one thing is different about this team and these two organizations. They are made up entirely of girls of color, from the players to the coaches.
Recently, a GoFundMe was created to help provide more resources for the group, so that they can attend more competitive tournaments, purchase better equipment, and possibly even to pay the volunteer coaches and staff that help make this project a reality.
The team has gotten a lot of traction as of late, getting to participate in the Winter Classic, getting to meet Minnesota Wild defenseman Matt Dumba, and skating with college hockey players from teams like Augsburg. With more attention focused on the team, they’re hoping to keep expanding the program and to create more opportunities for future generations of hockey players.
In the video below, Hockey Niñas co-founder Meredith Lang and Minnesota Unbounded coach Tina Kampa talk about the history of the organizations and their aspirations for the future.
