One of the North Bay Ice Boltz Coaches, Emma Shimizu was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma at the age of 19.

For those who know Emma, knows she truly lights up every room she walks into.  

Emma recently turned her passion into coaching where she is loved & cherished by each child she coaches & has made a difference in every athlete's life.


While Emma fights for her life, Ice Boltz trainer and Emma’s best friend Ruby Pilatzke wanted to help aid the Shimizu family with all the hidden costs cancer brings. 


They have teamed up with level1custom to design Emma Strong Shirts with all proceeds going to Emma & her family!

There are 3 designs!

1 - Emma Strong

2 - It’s Bigger than Hockey, Emma Strong

3 - Nipissing Athletics, Emma Strong


All 3 designs have a meaning in Emma’s life & we invite you to purchase the one that best suits you!


They are available in grey with purple writing!
