Black Girl Hockey Club (BGHC), a woman-founded community space for Black women in hockey, has teamed up with professional hockey player Saroya Tinker to raise money for young Black women athletes.

Together, Tinker and BCHC founder Renee Hess have raised over $30,000 to build a scholarship fund for hopeful Black women hockey players.

Tinker knows firsthand how difficult it is to establish yourself within the hockey realm as a Black woman. Even after graduating from Yale and becoming a National Women’s Hockey League (NWHL) player for the Metropolitan Riveters, she still says she felt like she was lost in the shuffle.
