Afterwards, they accepted a scholarship to Shattuck-St. Mary’s Prep in Minnesota, the same school that Sidney Crosby played at.[4] At Shattuck-St. Mary’s, the Lamoureux sisters led the school to four state titles and three national championships (2005, 2006 and 2007).

In 2009, Jocelyne and her sister transferred from Minnesota to North Dakota. The reason for the transfer to their home state was attributed to the fact that North Dakota hired Brian Idalski, a former coach at the USA Hockey Development Camps.[5]

USA Hockey

Her first exposure to USA Hockey was at the USA Hockey Player Development Camp. She ended up being a four-time USA Hockey Player Development Camp attendee (2004–07). She was a two-time USA Hockey Women's National Festival participant (2008–09) and a member of the U.S. Women's Under-22 Select Team for the 2008 Under-22 Series. She led the team with two goals. Lamoureux also participated as a two-time member of the U.S. Women's Select Team for the Four Nations Cup (1st-2008, 2nd-2006). Recently, she was a member of the U.S. Women's National Team for the 2009 International Ice Hockey Federation World Women's Championship that won gold.[6] Currently, she is a member of the 2009–10 United States national women's ice hockey team. Jocelyne and her sister, Monique Lamoureux will be the first set of twins ever to play women's ice hockey in the Olympics.[7]
