Women's ice hockey has a deep storied history. One important story that is a must know is the critical role trailblazer Rhonda Taylor made to the rejuvenation and exceptional growth of women's hockey beginning in the early 1980's. Learn all about this important history and the role Rhonda played through her involvement with the Ontario Women's Hockey Association (OWHA) and the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association - now Hockey Canada - in her new book "OFFSIDE - A Memoir" to be officially released October 5th, 2019 at the original Hockey Hall of Fame in Kingston, Ontario. Written in collaboration with her grand niece Denbeigh Whitmarsh, OFFSIDE "is the autobiographical memoir of Rhonda Leeman Taylor, one of the founding members of women’s hockey in Canada, as it was reborn after the initial surge in the early 1900s and subsequent decline after the 1930s".
