2017 Start Talking Cup_28_zpseys5blfn

The “Start Talking Cup” was the dream of Jim Harris and John Kelly. A dream that would continue to grow year after year. Their vision was to shine the spotlight on the mental health of young hockey players and the youth in our community, and to break the stigma surrounding mental health issues. Workshops focused on mental health awareness are provided to all players and parents by Canadian Mental Health Youth Counsellors.

In 2015 the first event featured the AAA Minor Midget Barrie Colts and the North Central Predators competing for the “Start Talking Cup”. This year our 3rd Annual “Start Talking Cup” is took place on Sunday, January 22, 2017 at the Barrie Molson Centre. This year we were proud to host 3 games. We  featured the Minor Midget Barrie Colts vs. North Central Predators, Bantam Barrie Sharks vs. Aurora Panthers as well as the Minor Atom Barrie Colts vs. North Central Predators.

This year we raised $15, 400 towards our Start Talking Campaign, with 1200 in attendance.
