Born in Kitchener Ontario, Keely Brown started playing Ringette at the age of 6. Halfway through her first season, she knew her love was as a goalie. Keely played with the Kitchener Ringette Association until she moved away to study at the University of Toronto and eventually went west to backstop the Edmonton WAM! in the National Ringette League, where she is now the Head Coach...
Keely represented her country at numerous World Championships in Ringette and Roller Hockey, including back-stopping Team Canada to a gold medal in Ringette in 2002 and in Roller Hockey in 2002, 2004 and 2005, and transitioning to coach Team Canada to a gold medal in Roller Hockey in 2012. Her success as a Ringette goalie translated to her love of hockey as Keely started in her humble beginning as the 1st girl to play on her high school boy’s hockey team. This eventually lead to her progress to becoming the starting goaltender for the University of Toronto women’s varsity team, and eventually turning “pro” with the Mississauga Ice Bears of the NWHL. She finished off her hockey goaltending career with 8 years as a member of the Edmonton Chimos in the Western Women’s Hockey League. Off the ice, Keely holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Toronto and a law degree earned from Osgood Hall law school. She now combines her knowledge of the law with her passion for sport as the General Counsel for the Edmonton Oilers, Edmonton Oil Kings and Edmonton Capitals.
