Niagara Youth Need Sports

What's New with NYNS

Hey NYNS Family! It’s been an amazing year so far, as we have had the opportunity to eradicate the financial barriers for several Niagara families, keeping Niagara’s youth involved in sports. We are excited to announce that it’s time to gear up for the 3rd Annual JKR Liddiard Memorial Charity Lacrosse Tournament!


The JKR Liddiard Memorial Charity Lacrosse Tournament , aims to honour the “Liddiard Boys” Jim, Ken and Rob Liddiard, who served the youth in the Niagara area for over 30 years. 


This year's tournament will take place on September 15-17 at the Ball Hockey Club in St. Catharines Ontario. 


Event Highlights:



  • Official DJ of the Toronto Maple Leafs Cale Granton will be bringing the vibes all weekend!

  • Tented Outdoor Event.

  • Food for Purchase on Site

  • Niagara Inflatables + Other Vendors for Kids to Enjoy.

  • Prize Table

  • Hardest Shot Competition 

  • Liquor License- Drinks Available for Purchase 

  • Most importantly "Lax and Love" & Giving Back to the Community!This year's event will be one to remember!



With 8 confirmed masters level teams competing and room for 4-5 more teams, we are already on our way to making a difference in kid’s lives by using the funds raised to keep the youth of Niagara involved in sports. 


This year we are looking to expand our partnerships and sponsors so we can continue our mission of serving Niagara’s youth by providing them access to team sports through sponsorship, equipment, registration and unyielding mentorship. 


We know our efforts will go even farther with your business as an official corporate sponsor. In this role, your business would provide a donation or prize for the tournament, and in turn we would promote your company as one of the event’s official sponsors. With your business by our side at this upcoming event, we’re sure to achieve this season’s fundraising goal and serve the community of Niagara well.


If your company is interested in being an official event sponsor, please reach out to us at or 905 931-5385. We can’t wait to hear back!
