Long-time leader and advocate of girls and women’s hockey to be honoured by special “Hazel McCallion 100” commemorative jersey program
SUBJECT: OWHA Celebrates Hazel McCallion
In honour of Hazel’s 100th birthday on February 14, 2021, the OWHA launched a special hockey jersey program to acknowledge and pay tribute to her outstanding leadership and accomplishments.
Celebration 1 (launched February 14) - OWHA Hazel 100 Commemorative Jersey
The OWHA has created a “Hazel McCallion 100”, limited-edition commemorative jersey. The jersey has been designed as an individual keepsake, for a presentation or a promotional item. It honours Hazel with a specially designed crest, and is appropriately numbered “100” on the back and on the sleeves. The name bar on the back is “Hazel”.
Celebration 2 (to be launched when hockey returns) - OWHA Hazel 100 Team Jersey
The second component of the program will honour Hazel from the date of her birthday and through the 2021/2022 hockey season. All OWHA-registered teams may have an athlete wear jersey No. 100 provided they are authorized OWHA Hazel 100 jerseys. The team jerseys will include the “Hazel McCallion 100” crest and the OWHA crest, and approval is available through application to the OWHA.
Celebration 3 (to be launched when hockey returns) - OWHA Officiating Program Jersey
OWHA on-ice officials may wear the “Hazel McCallion 100” crest on their jerseys for the 2021/2022 hockey season.
Please join us in honouring Hazel, a highly respected leader who inspires girls, women and people of all cultures to have confidence in themselves and to pursue their dreams in order to create a stronger society. She continues to lead by example as a tireless visionary for a better world and for her fierce belief that every person be given an opportunity to succeed.
