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.
In 2015 the first event featured the AAA Minor Midget Barrie Colts and the North Central Predators competing for the “Start Talking Cup”.
Since then we now feature an additional “best of the best” in girls hockey! showcasing the Bantam AA Barrie Sharks and Aurora Panthers.
Together we have raised over $40, 000 for mental health in our community.
