09 Nov Start Talking Cup

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 we are thrilled to announce our 3rd Annual “Start Talking Cup” is taking place on Sunday, January 22, 2017 at the Barrie Molson Centre. This year we are proud to host 3 games. We will be featuring 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. Tickets are available prior to the game for $2.00 and will also be available at the door.

Sponsorships are available!
