A while ago, my family and I were watching the PWHPA game that was being broadcasted, which was terrible quality and difficult to source, unlike any of the male games we watch. We started to discuss how females are not well represented in the hockey world. I wanted to help change that idea and bring more awareness to female hockey.
My mom and I came up with the idea of the launching a brand called, HERo Hockey. The idea behind my brand is not only just to sell shirts, but to bring knowledge and awareness to everyone that we need to PLAY FOR HER. Who ever you’re HER is… if it’s your sister, your mother, your daughter, your hero or yourself, we all need to stand up and PLAY FOR HER!
We also decided that we wanted to help give back and developed what we call the HERo Fund. A portion of my profits along with any donations made to the HERo Fund will go directly to getting girls playing hockey. We will work closely with local hockey associations to help out with equipment and registration costs for girls in need. We are still currently working on developing this program and hope to have enough in the HERo fund by the fall to help get more girls out on the ice!
Our goal with HERo Hockey is to change the perception of our society in that hockey ain’t just for boys…From U7 all the way to the NWHL, girls deserve to play too.
