2023 • LS7 Charity
In an attempt to get kids active and involved in sports, I am excited to announce that Kids Sport Ontario will continue to be our charity partner for this year’s event. My mission from the very beginning has been to help kids find their passion in sport or simply just have fun being active!

About Kids Sport
The reality is that cost keeps 1 in 3 Canadian kids out of organized sport. KidSport provides grants to help cover those costs to ensure that no kid is ever left watching from the sidelines.
Through a confidential application process, Kids Sport provide grants of between $250 – $500 to help cover sport registration and equipment costs so that all kids aged 18 and under can play a season of sport.
LS7 is specifically raising money for the local Toronto Chapter:
100% LOCAL IMPACT
All funds raised by KidSport Toronto stay in our community to get local kids off the sidelines and into a season of sport. Let’s work together to build strong kids and strong communities
• 4 DIVISIONS • 16 TEAMS
• 5 PLAYERS + GOALIE PER TEAM
• 96 PLAYERS
The tournament will consist of 4 divisions, composed of 4 teams. Teams will be made up of 5 players plus a goalie. Each team is guaranteed 3 games (game length: 2 – 15 minute halves). The top team from each division, will advance to the semi-finals, and then finals.
Anyone Can Play with Anyone!
This tournament is unlike the rest, as players will sign-up and register individually (not in teams of 6). On the day of the event during the opening ceremonies, sticks will be “pulled” and teams will be made up of players of all different skill sets, abilities and hockey experience. Teams will include professional hockey players, Olympians, adults, and kids (over 10 years old.) We want everyone – all ages, genders, and skill levels – to be able to play competitively! The cost to enter the tournament is $40 per player, and includes lunch.

Laura started playing hockey at age 4. Her parents enrolled her in a learn-to-skate/figure skating class but she didn’t enjoy it because she wanted to be with the kids playing hockey on a different rink. She eventually convinced her parents to let her play. When Laura watched the Canadian women win gold in 2002 in Salt Lake City, she started to dream about one day playing for Team Canada herself and standing on the blue line with a gold medal around her neck. Laura went on to play at Dartmouth College where she captained the team in her senior year. Her great-grandfather was Hockey Hall of Famer, King Clancy.
Laura first wore the maple leaf as a member of Canada’s National Women’s U18 Team in August 2010. She went on to win silver and gold with the team at the 2011 and 2012 IIHF U18 Women’s World Championships. Over the next few years, Laura was cut four consecutive years before finally making her IIHF Women’s World Championship debut in 2017, helping Canada win the silver medal. Getting cut and battling through injuries made her truly realize how much she wanted to pursue her dream of playing for Team Canada. Laura was fortunate enough to earn her spot on the 2018 Winter Olympic roster and helped Team Canada win the silver medal. Four years later, Laura was once again medalling for Team Canada at the 2022 Winter Olympics, only this time, she and teammates were wearing GOLD!
