KIM GALLAGHER

Founder | Skills Development Coach | Skating Specialist

Markham Thunder CWHL | Little Caesars 19u AAA Girls Coach

USA Hockey Girls' Player Development Camp Coach

Michigan State University DI Women's Hockey Coach | Shattuck-St. Mary's Alum

 

Kim was an 11th round draft pick for the 2018 Clarkston Cup Champions, the Markham Thunder, of the professional Canadian Women's Hockey League (CWHL) for the 2018/19 season. She was invited to attend the 2019 USA Hockey Girls' Player Development Camp as a coach at St. Cloud University in Minnesota.

 

She started her collegiate coaching career at a Big Ten University as the head coach of the Michigan State University DII women's team. Kim's success with the DII team in her first season led to an early promotion on the coaching staff of the DI women's team an assistant coach. Kim designed and ran the team's weekly off-ice skill development program which helped lead the Michigan State to the national tournament for two consecutive seasons.

Throughout her coaching career, Kim has trained men and women competing for their countries in the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF), the nation's top female collegiate players, women representing USA and Canada in the World University Games, young ones just getting started, and everyone in between. "Hockey is universal and is understood in any language," Kim said. "Having the opportunity to grow the game at home has always been my focus. Hosting clinics internationally was an experience I'll always cherish. My time spent working with the men and women of the Philippine Hockey Federation and their Learn-To-Play Hockey program was incredible. It's always humbling to play a small role in the growth of our sport." In the summer, Kim returns to one of the nation's top hockey programs and her alma mater, Shattuck-St. Mary's, to coach at their Elite Girls Summer Hockey Camp.

 

During her time at SSM, Kim played and trained with many Olympic athletes currently rostered on the U.S. Women's National and Olympic teams. Kim has also played at the international level, having played on teams throughout Canada including Junior hockey in the Provincial Women's Hockey League. Kim was offered an opportunity to play hockey at Dartmouth University. 

 

Kim loves being on the ice and helping the girls' game grow in the Metro Detroit area. She enjoys volunteering her time to various girls hockey associations as a guest skills and skating development coach. 

BIANCA BARTOLOMEI

Bianca began playing hockey as a sophomore at Regina High School. Originally rostered as a wing, due to her tenacity, she was later called to play center and defense to fill the spots of alumnae.  

 

After three seasons in the Michigan Metro Girls High School Hockey League, she went to Michigan State University where she played right wing. At the Big 10 University, Bianca had the privilege of traveling across the country to play against some of the nation's top female athletes.

 

Following graduation, she continues to pursue her passion for the game by officiating, playing, and serving as a head coach of various women's and youth teams.

Bianca is a certified official for the American Collegiate Hockey Association, USA Hockey, Michigan High School Athletic Association, and the Amateur Athletic Union. She is one of the few women currently in Michigan to officiate men's college hockey - ACHA Divisions 1, 2, 3. She has officiated men's and women's college hockey, USA Hockey Districts, MAHA State Tournaments, and was selected for the AAU National Championships. Bianca often volunteers her time officiating charity games including the annual Guns and Hoses charity game hosted by the Royal Oak Police and Fire Department. 

 

She was selected to represent Team USA at the 2016 CARHA World Cup hosted in Canada. She currently plays forward and defense on the Detroit Revolution.

ELIZA OLLINGER

Eliza had hoped to play ice hockey since her youth; however, growing up in Kentucky meant the closest ice rink to her house was several miles away.

 

A natural leader with a late introduction to the game, Eliza quickly jumped from recreational women's hockey to serving as a captain on her nationally-ranked women's team for the past eight seasons. She has made numerous MAHA State Tournament and USA Hockey National Championship appearances.
 

Having grown up in an area where hockey is scarce, Eliza understands the importance of growing youth sports and athletics. She uses her experiences to grow youth hockey in Detroit and ensures each child leaves the ice with a smile on his/her face.

Eliza's presence on the ice is profound; therefore, she is currently rostered and is a captain on the Detroit Revolution, as a defenseman and a right wing.
