Ariana Kresic



Ariana is in her second full year at Vimy Ridge Academy as a goalie and cognitive instructor, and also assists on the ice with the ringette academy. Ariana earned her Kinesiology Diploma at Red Deer College while playing for the women’s hockey team, and then proceeded to finish her Kinesiology Degree at the University of Alberta.

Since graduating, Ariana continues to stay involved with hockey in multiple areas. These include mentoring under Kurtis Mucha as a goaltending instructor, assistant coaching with the Edmonton Wolves in the AJFHL and assistant coaching with Hockey Alberta at Alberta Challenge. Ariana’s coaching has also led her to train the cognitive side of the game, and she currently trains athletes of various levels including those playing in NCAA, Usports, ACHA, ACAC and minor level associations.

She is excited to continue working with the athletes and staff at Vimy Ridge.
