Hailee Dayman has joined the Virden Oil Capitals as its new Canadian Athletic Therapy Certification Candidate and Equipment Manager.
Dayman, 26, took Kinesiology from the University of Lethbridge, eventually ending up at Camosun College in Victoria where she received her Bachelor of Athletic and Exercise Therapy.
“I always wanted to be in the physio realm so when I found out about this profession, I fell in love with it,” Dayman said.
Growing up in her hometown of Estevan, Sask., Dayman played hockey herself, eventually leaving home at 15 years of age to play the game at the AAA level. She wound up injuring both knees while playing university hockey, which ended her playing career.
“I love being around sports and I love being able to help people,” she said. “Being injured myself, it was interesting to see the mechanics and the ways you can rehab your body. I had to deal with an athletic therapist then, so I decided I wanted to help other people so they can continue to play the sport they love.”
Dayman has previous experience working in junior A hockey. She worked with the SJHL’s Estevan Bruins during the 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 seasons.
“We’re excited to have Hailee join our organization. Her strong work ethic and enthusiasm are great assets to our club,” said Troy Leslie, head coach and GM of the Oil Capitals.
Jamie Hodson, Director of Business and Hockey Operations, says with her hockey background and strong passion for the sport, the club is excited to have Hailee on board.
“She would like to make this a long-term commitment and we’re going to work with her in hopefully making that happen. Hailee fits our mold of having great people with strong character on our club. We look forward to having her as a member of our staff.”
Welcome aboard Hailee!
