Southwest Tyke Tournament – Top 10


The Southwest Dave Waller Tyke Fun Day was held at the Glencoe Memorial Arena in Glencoe, ON. The Southwest Tyke Tournament was host to sixteen teams from neighbouring towns such as St. Marys, Dresden, East Lambton, and Lucan. The tournament is dedicated to Dave Waller, an inspiring member of the Southwest Minor Hockey Association who coached in the Novice Tri-County Division. Dave had a dream that all children could play sports, regardless of the cost and The New Start Program was created for that reason: to help cover the cost for local children to get the chance to play organized sports. This event, along with the Dave Waller Memorial Golf Tournament, raises funds for The New Start Program and the education fund for Dave’s children.

This is a cause very close to my heart as I grew up playing community sports and know how important and fun it was to me as a child. I believe that every child should have the opportunity to be part of a team while playing a game they love.
