Zandee-Hart has a rich hockey history on the Island, and throughout Canada. Growing up, she played 10 seasons with the Peninsula Minor Hockey Association and spring hockey for the Island Stars and Team Pacific. In 2012, she moved to Penticton to play for the Okanagan Hockey Academy, and became a member of Team BC in the Canada Winter Games. Later on, she played on Team Canada on multiple occasions, and for Cornell University from 2015 to 2020.

Zandee-Hart was also supposed to compete at the World Championships in Halifax, but the event was cancelled due to COVID-19.

The CRFMHA was formed in 2017 with a goal of developing and advancing youth female hockey skills in the CRD. The organization noted that since launching programming in 2019, they have drawn 79 new players to the sport.
