The legacy (all proceeds) from the Sarnia-Lambton World Under 17 event will be left in our communities and go back into our local facilities and hockey associations in Lambton County.

The host committee has been given a very short time to put on this event, however, Hockey Canada and our host committee knows that our communities are up for this endeavor. The 2014 World Under 17 Hockey Challenge host committee, is committed and is confident it will deliver a 1st class event.

We have dedicated volunteers, outstanding facilities, however most importantly we need the support of our local Hockey Associations.

We have demonstrated our commitment to host the 2014 World Under 17 Hockey Challenge and truly believe we have the passion, strength and experience needed to host a 1st class event that will leave a lasting legacy and create memories that will last a life time.

It is the support from individuals such as yourself, the local minor hockey associations, our communities and local businesses that will truly make this the best WU17 event Hockey Canada has ever seen!! Let’s show them our true spirit.
