A total of 45 teams are playing in this year's tournament in four categories, ranging from competitive to fun.
The tournament’s goal to raise funds for our beneficiaries but organizers say it's mostly to bring the community together to celebrate Lindsay, and the game of hockey. Over the years, players of all abilities have continued to enjoy this quintessential Canadian charity event, from beginners to three-generation family teams to business and service club sponsored teams to highly competitive entrants.
The Kimmett Cup has raised over $2 million for charity and has become an annual celebration embraced by the entire community.
