Sheila Forshaw (Athlete)

Inductee Name: Sheila Forshaw
Category: Athlete
Date: Class of 2018

For 10 years between 1978-1988, Forshaw was a permanent fixture on the Canadian Women’s National team’s front line where she established herself as one of Canada’s most prolific goal scorers in history. When it came to on-field play, Forshaw had everything one could ask for: acceleration, speed, ball control and an eye for the goal. She was calm and calculated on the pitch, always providing an extraordinary example for her teammates. An all-Canadian student athlete at York University, Forshaw was selected for three Olympic squads and competed in four world championships. She played on the Canadian women’s teams that reached the podium at the 1983 and 1986 World Cups.
